  1. you allow past meetings and/or dates to automatically shade a certain color

    In order to differentiate present date and meetings from past meetings, shade the calendar, or meetings a different color. Ex: Meeting from last week is not mistaken from meeting this week because it automatically is darkened because it is a past event. Maybe the week is shaded differently as wel..

  2. When I see calendar entries for the week, the width of current day should be increased compared to other days.

    Then I see calendar entries for the week, the width of current day should be increased compared to other days.
    This helps in 2 ways
    1) focuses on current day
    2) Increases width on the most widely used entry.

    Another option would be to allow the user to modify/save the width per day.

  6. When you add an event to your calendar and set it as 'Out of Office an automatic email should be generated stating the out of office times.

    so say you are going on holiday for a week 1st of Jan -7th of Jan, you put it in your Calendar and set it as 'Out of Office' that action in itself should set up your Automatic reply email stating the dates "George is out of the office and will be back on the 8th of Jan. Yadda yadda'

  7. Sync with corporate Exchange network (like Windows)

    Outlook for Mac is still failry useless for Apple/Mac users until it can fully sync with calendars in an Exchange network. Thank goodness for OWA, which provides full functionality. WHEN will MS make Outlook for Mac OS and iOS the same as it does for Windowsusers?

  8. Completely get rid of (or retire) the .ics

    Please consider to completely retire .ics system. It's just adding a lot of steps to download the .ics file so that Outlook calendar can recognize the event. Try to streamline this process just like Google Calendar. Thanks!

  9. Annoying Outlook reminder window on Mac

    Allow a customisable time setting for the reminders window to popup on Mac (and maybe Windows as well) instead of popping up ALL THE TIME like it does now. It is so annoying that it constantly pops up with reminders and doesn't drop behind the main window like it does on Windows - SO ANNOYING

  10. Clickable link in calendar reminder window

    I would like for it to be easier to click a URL contained within the location field of a meeting (to join an online meeting) — from the Reminders window.

    I should be able to click the URL from the reminder window to automatically join the meeting.

  14. Forward a meeting without host or other invitees seeing the new invitee

    I'm a consultant and work with several clients. My clients require me to have an email address and calendar on their domain. Some clients even require me to use their hardware, which makes it impossible to integrate or combine calendars. In my attempt to control chaos, I maintain a separate "master calendar" that includes every meeting I'm invited to across all clients. Maintaining this calendar currently requires me to manually add a meeting every time a client invites to a meeting using their own email/calendar domain.

    I would like to be able to forward emails to my master calendar, but…

  15. Arrows in the calendar view to show there are meetings that cannot fit in the hours displayed

    In the calendar view, to make entries readable you can display maybe 10 hours of the day. As organizations today span the globe, we often have meetings outside our "daytime" hours. An arrow at the top or bottom of each days hour listing to indicate there are meetings on this day that are not currently displayed would remind us we have another meeting to attend.

  17. Allow for drag and drop/copying items from one calendar to another.

    On the windows version of outlook, you can simply drag items from one calendar to other calendars and it will copy the event over to that calendar.

  19. Transfer ownership of appointment

    It should be possible to transfer the ownership (organizer) of an appointment to another person or at least share ownership for a specific appointment with one or more other persons.
