  1. Allow me turn off automatic meetings from emails from the outlook client.

    Outlook has an inbuilt scanning feature which allows it to find out if you have an invite to email, a flight ticket, hotel reservations, package delivery and allows Outlook Calendar to automatically create calendar entries. I get multiple flight and travel emails for the same event and I will get 4 or more duplicate calendar items. I cannot turn it off in my client and don't have access to OWA where this is supposedly where you can turn off. Add a configuration item in the clients (Mac too please).

  3. When replying on a Calendar item, allow others to be added on the "To:" besides the Calendar item creator

    Often I need key members of a meeting to know I can't attend or have a conflict with a meeting- I need the ability to add an additional person to my tentative or decline response.
    I can do this in the Windows version without issues- the functionality is missing from the MAC version of Outlook

  4. Allow editing of calendar invitation titles from other people

    Previously, when receiving a calendar invite, I could rename the invite so that it was easy for me to quickly see what client was involved with the meeting. Now I am unable to edit the titles, and all of my meetings have similar titles (like GoToMeeting) requiring me to individually click into every calendar invite to see what the real subject of the meeting is.

    When contacting support I was told the ability to change calendar invite titles was marked as a "bug" by developers and removed intentionally, but it's made my life miserable to have to constantly open every…

  6. Implement the option "Other workplace" or "Smart Working" in Outlook for MAC

    In the management of Appointments or Meetings of the Calendar implement the option "Other workplace" or "Smart Working" from the selection menu of Microsoft Outlook for MAC Version 16.34 (20011906). Already present in Microsoft for Office 365.
    This is to ensure the use of Microsoft Outlook during Smart Working.
    Ensure the change of state in the Schedule Assistant in the calendar and Guarantee the change of state of the presence in Skype for Business.

  8. 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..

  9. 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.

  11. 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'

  12. 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!

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
