  2. location

    Search for Room or Resource by Location

    Our company has Multiple Buildings spread across multiple geographic locations. Our previous calendaring system allowed for us to search for available Rooms and/or Resources based on building or location. Would be an awesome add for Outlook to support the same since all the framework already exists our AD.

    In outlook 2010, you were able to email your availability to assist recipients to book meetings with you. I cannot find it in Outlook O365

  4. recurrence

    When coming onto a project or joining a company, one might often get invites to events that recur but whose meeting started prior to joining the project or company. Allow one to accept an event but only for those dates going forward from the current date/time as some people use calendars to track their history as well as coordinate their future.

    Right click on a calendar and forward to others. When you create a shared calendar you can forward to your team to add their out of office. This is possible on the PC version of outlook, but not the MAC version

  9. Test a clock widget (instead of time selector) for picking time in calendar

    Outlook should maybe try to test a clock widget instead of time selector for picking the time (for meetings, appointments etc.). Is it better? We don't know, that's why it should be tested. I see Outlook asa

    Ideas comes from here and it doesn't belong to me but to the author of the following article: http://uxmovement.com/forms/why-a-clock-widget-is-easier-for-picking-time/

  10. Meeting location scroll down list

    => Meetings/Appointments => Location (List)
    The Mac implementation currently does not support a scroll down list of previously used meeting locations. The scroll down button is already in place but does not work. The Windows version can do it easily. Pls. enable this function also in the Mac version.

  12. Add a vacation appointment that allows you to invite people as informational so that your boss can get your

    Add a vacation meeting type where you can have informational attendees who get the meeting as an all-day event showing free on their calendar while it shows out of office on yours. This would be very handy in informing people of your outages.

    There might be other use cases for the informational meeting type to inform that a meeting is occurring, but not remind or expect attendance.

  14. WTF Microsoft you disabled the Zoom Plug-in in your latest update? I suggest you put that back in real quick.

    There is a plug-in for Zoom, that worked until you last update. Darn it, I look guys every other of your releases is **** in some way. Heard for QUALITY CONTROL? I guess NOT.

  16. Move daily weather forecast to directly above day

    Having daily weather is useful but would be better placed at top of each day rather than off separately to top right

  17. When you have a large amount of invites in the To: field hides the location box and not able to see it and update it.

    With to many employee in the To field for the invites hides the location box and can't type in it. That will need to be fixed.

  18. Adding people to meetings from scheduling assistant

    The flow for adding people to a meeting always feels way more complicated than it needs to be. In the scheduling assistant, I click on the "+ Add New" button in the left side which gives me a search box. Double clicking on the name from there should just drop them into the invite, not open their contact card. The buttons on the bottom blend too much into the chrome to feel like it's part of the same surface...so making them feel like part of the flow would be helpful.

    Better yet, just word wheel in the list of the…

  20. Make conference room auto complete search smarter

    When searching for a conference room the auto complete searches from the start of the conference room name. I would like it to search from anywhere in the name. For instance, our company names conference rooms as such: CR UT1-02/UT1-2306 Hamm VC CPR (6). I would like to be able to just type "Hamm" and find the room. Currently I have to type "CR UT1-02" and then pick the right value from the list of rooms on the second floor.
