  1. meeting with dependencies

    Meetings with task dependencies.

    When arranging a meeting you should be able to add preparatory work.

    Example:
    I want to present the results of my work in a meeting.
    1. I add the proposed meeting time/date.
    2. I have to estimate the amount of work that has to be done in advance ("My work" in hours and "Creating presentation" in hours.)
    3. Outlook should then find the required openings in my calendar when this can be done.

    If there is no such openings (there isn't enough time to do the preparatory work for the meeting) Outlook prompts me on this…

  2. Multiple Meeting Time Slots - to offer when scheduling meetings

    When I send a meeting invite to a person or a group, it would be nice to send it with multiple time options, where there could be different choices.

    IF a group: each person can individually choose which time they would like to attend. (This works great when offering trainings.)

    IF a group: everyone can vote on the best time, and then the organizer selects on of the times

    Individual: The individual is sent a few options and then they can choose one.

  3. Recurring event in every second and fourth week based on first full week in month

    Hi!
    I need to create a recurring event on every second and fourth Wednesday in month based on first full week.
    The problem is: when the month starts with Tuesday or Wednesday, the event is one week too early.
    How can I configure that recurring event?
    Thank you very much in advance for any useful hint!

  5. Bold days on calendar to show if you have something scheduled

    It would be helpful if the monthly calendar had the days darkened if you have something calendared for that day. That way you don't have to skim through every day to see if you have something scheduled later in the day.

  7. Calendar colors mismatch

    The calendar colors between the Outlook on iOS and Outlook.com don't match. If I pick a color for a calendar in one, it's a completely different color on the other platform.

  8. .ICS import change/delete calendar items

    I use the .ics import to fill a calendar with my work meetings. I export an .ics file from my Outlook at work, import it into outlook.com. As my company doesn't allow a link to their Exchange from other devices, I use it to have my calendar on my phone and home computers.

    Now I have noticed that when once imported an item isn't updated when a new import is done. When an item is deleted, it isn't deleted from my outlook.com calendar, same happens when an item is changed (for instance time changed) the orignal item stays in the…

  9. status

    It would be nice if there was an option (like the available, busy, out of office, and tentative options) to mark the calendar and your status as "Working from Home" or "Remote." In my office, lots of people work from home with various schedules, so it would be nice if there was an easy way to check that information without having to individually ask each person.

  10. Month View of all events

    I'd like to view all events on my Month-View calendar (not just in a side bar). Can I have an option to do that please. If it's only visible in a side bar, an event can get missed as it's only visible on the day, and not ahead of time (unless I click on each day).

  15. Calender View multiple weeks

    Hello,
    currently Outlook offers 5 different standard view in calender (day, working week, week, month, planning view). I'm often using a view of 2-4 weeks in my calender, by marking manually multiple weeks in the menu bar. How can I define a default calender view with an own defined time range? It seems this is just not possible.

  16. In the calendar week view, I would like to be able to customize the view so that I can see the entire day. Currently I can only see 5 hours

    Provide for a custom view of the calendar, so that if I want to view a whole week across and the entire day down. I hate having to scroll up and down just to check and see if I have any open slots. Before the last revision that type of view was available and I really, really miss it.

  17. Allow meeting room resource calendar to track changes in attendee list

    Currently, changes in the attendee list are not reflected in the meeting room's calendar chosen as location. And there is no known way to enable this.

    For the sake of simplicity, imagine a situation where you are responsible for catering services. And you need to order coffee for the attendees automatically. And you have of course read access to the room's calendar. It is obvious, that you should simply check the number of attendees half an hour before the start. Well because of this strange behavior, you can't. You will only see the people in the original invitation. Which likely…

  18. [Beta] - Dutch translation correction

    In the new (beta) calendar, the context menu to set your 'availability status' contains a wrong translation.
    I believe in English the menu will show 'Free' as first item.
    The Dutch translation now shows 'Gratis', which translates to 'Free' in the context of 'a free drink'. The correct translation should be something in the line of 'Beschikbaar' (translates to 'Available') or 'Vrij' (translates to 'Free' in the context of 'I am free this afternoon').

  20. Improvements in Calendar

    Hi team support,
    the new look of the Calendar application is excellent but when one tries to include some comments or notes about the appointment one doesn't have any place to do it. By other hand you don't have the possibility to include additional alerts using the email as we did it with the old one. In other words we have lost very interesting services in this new version.
    Please,consider to inclde them in the updates.
