  1. 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.

  3. Print calendar in dark mode with black type

    Currently when printing a calendar in dark mode, the type is reversed and doesn't appear on the print. Please correct so that printing in dark mode provides a color print out but with black type on white (or color).

  4. Use a slightly darker color for the time tick mark labels for additional timezones in the calendar

    When both a local and additional timezones are displayed in the calendar, the additional timezone time can easily be mistaken for the local timezone, probably because we read from left to right?) This happens to me enough times that I feel that having the additional timezone tick mark labels displayed in a slightly darker color than the local timezone tick mark labels would be of great help to avoid mistaking the additional timezone time for the local time.

  5. Allow editing w/o sending an email

    Can you add a feature that allows people to update / edit calendar invites without sending an email update each and every time to the people on the invite? This causes unneeded emails being sent out and can almost be seen as spam to users on invites that get edited frequently.

  6. iPhone/icloud Calendar Syncing.

    It still doesn't work even with the so called workaround using Outlook Web. Make it easier for the Apple / MS eco-system!

  7. template appointment

    Please make available the option to save a calendar appointment as template.

    Under Windows I used the "save as" > template for appointments often. Unfortunately the "save as" is disabled in appointments, while it is available in e-mails (which I use even more often, too).

  9. Do not remove the ability to list more than 4 all-day events in shared calendars in the web calendar.

    Do not remove the ability to list more than 4 all-day events in shared calendars in the web calendar. We suddenly can only see 4 rows of info for all-day events such as employee days off, holidays etc... in the web app. I've been given conflicting info as to whether this is the new expected behavior or not. Support fixed it 3 days ago but the issue just returned.

  11. Name an appointment without having to open it

    Until a recent update, when I created a new appointment on my calendar, I could name it right there in the calendar, it would select the text "New Appointment" and I could replace it. Now I have to open the new event to edit the title. Please restore previous functionality.

  12. I suggest you enable calendar browsing by mouse/trackpad, as at the moment it's only possible clicking on the forward backward button.

    I suggest you enable calendar browsing by mouse/trackpad, as at the moment it's only possible clicking on the forward backward button. Ironically you can browse forward and backward in the calendar by mouse/trackpad when you schedule a new meeting or open an existing one, but not in the main calendar view.

  13. Search Total Time

    When I search for an event in my Outlook Calendar, I see columns for the Subject, Location, Start, End, and Recurrence Pattern.
    Is it possible to add a tab for “Total Time” of the event (ex. 2.5 hr.)? Or to see a total number of hours for the event when searched?
    Would be helpful to search how much time has been spend on specific events or projects with reoccurring key words in the subject.

  14. Add support for responding to iCal Calendar notifications.

    When an iCal user sends a calendar invite, ability to accept or reject invitation via Outlook is missing. Please, add support for that.

  15. Meeting Room based on availability

    May I request that (like in the iOS Outlook app and the O365 mail) when in Outlook for Mac, when scheduling a meeting, that the default list of meeting rooms shows ONLY the meeting rooms that are available at the time of the meeting? This would be amazing! I’m happy to talk more or show you what I mean. Thank you!

  20. Send to OneNote-for meetings I schedule

    When I open a meeting from someone else, I see the "Send to OneNote" button. (Very nice). It copies all the relevant meeting information to the note and I'm off to the races.

    However, when I open a meeting that I've sent out, the "Send to OneNote" button is no longer there. This is especially troubling because the meetings that I schedule are usually the ones where I need to scribe notes. I don't know if this is a feature or a bug.
