  3. Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters).

    Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters). Color coding events is great, but it would be super helpful to be able to color code large blocks of time. Project based scheduling would benefit from this feature.

  8. Limit "Overdue" alerts lookback

    When Outlook starts working with a new calendar, it slowly pulls all the events that were ever recorded in the calendar. Obviously, they are very very very long overdue. For instance, I get alerts from 2011. This goes on for weeks if not months of popups asking me to dismiss more and more alerts.

    Proposal: have a configuration option to ignore events that are older than a certain threshold. By default, it should be, IMO, not more than a year and better immediate.

    Note: since once I have dismissed all the wrong alerts (which, again, takes a lot of time),…

  9. Deadlines function for calendar

    Introduce a deadlines function for calendars to help users keep track of upcoming tasks. The "Meetings" function is not useful for this. A large number of academic institutions in the UK use Outlook. Students need visibility of deadlines.

  10. I suggest you in Outlook, to have possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail

    I suggest you in Outlook, to have the possibility "to switch off" automatic deleting e-mail if e-mail is indicated as meeting invitation. Because very often "this kind of e-mails" - invitations, consists "meeting invitation link". And if you have connected/sync mobile phone with desktop comp, you can simply lose invitation link.

  11. Allow clicking links in meeting reminders to launch vc sessions without opening the event.

    When reminders pop up with VC links in the location, it would be great to be able to click on the VC links directly rather than clicking the reminder to open the event and then copying the link to a browser. This is the experience I have on the OS X client, not sure if this is true in other clients

  12. Create a static mtg ID option -

    Is there a way to schedule a meeting using Teams with a static meeting id? I schedule weekly back to back one on one with my individual team members and I don’t want to have to leave one meeting just to have to join another. I want to schedule their meetings, I join and then they each join at their scheduled times. Is this possible?

  13. Use Custom Signature for allotted time frame

    It would be great if Outlook had similar functionality to Out of Office messages where a signature during a designated time period. For instance, we a company is promoting a special event, the "event signature" would drop off after the event is over and revert to the standard signature.

  15. Update monthly calendar view

    Make the monthly calendar view scrollable by one week at a time. I use this in my work PC to view current jobs and those coming up on the calendar. It is very time consuming to have to change back and forth between months the last two weeks of the month

  16. recommend to the platform designers to include in an update an option to unlink this special coding between calendars, as color is in place

    please recommend to the platform designers to include in an update an option to unlink special color-tagging coding between calendars, as color is in place to help in organization and not disrupt these systems; for a user whose calendar I help manage, the color coding is useful for them (using these multiple colors for this one person's calendar), but, it conflicts with the color coding system I find useful for my work (which aligns one color per person); it seems to have been developed by the user applying tags to certain meetings in their calendar. As when someone changes the…

  18. Android schedule mismatch at Mac Outlook while Windows Outlook set the same schedule as Android.

    When I open a new schedule at my Android phone calendar for a whole day schedule, it appears two days at the Mac Outlook while my Windows PC Outlook does show the same schedule of Android.
    For a schedule at Android which is not a whole day, for ex. 1~2 hours, it does showing the same schedule at Mac Outlook as well as Windows Outlook.
    It looks like local time manipulation has problem.... because even though I make a schedule at Seoul/Korea time, it does appear to be set as UTC time.
    When I make a schedule at Mac, however,…

  19. Outlook and Teams are overlapping when it comes to calendars ...

    Could you please make it easer to jump from outlook directly into a teams conversation and the other way around?
    It simply makes no sense to have the same calendar in two different tools with different interaction patterns.
    Why do you even develop products with different interaction patterns for the same purpose? I mean really: I am a UX Designer and I just don't get what you are doing ... its kind of a pity.

  20. Please allow shared calendars to be grouped.

    When opening a high number of shared calendars for scheduling purposes, e.g. a manager's direct reports, it would be much, much easier to be able to group these calendars and expand/collapse as needed. Currently, you would have to open up the address book to verify who is on whose team, etc.
