  1. 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,…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. A feature to force or suggest all calendar invites for meetings/appointments to have an alert/reminder.

    It would be great to have a feature that can force all calendar invites for meetings/appointments to have an alert/reminder. It doesn’t happen often, but at times a meeting organizer forgets to add a reminder alert and that can cause issues when attendees don’t get a reminder notification. Even having updating the code/program to look to see if there is an alert, and if there isn't one asking/suggesting an alert be added as one imports the new invite would be helpful instead of force.

  5. FIX: 2020 Outlook for Mac UI doesn't show coworker's calendars

    I tried the new 2020 Outlook for Mac UI... it looked much better but when I tried to view coworkers calendars I could not see any other contact in my organization. When I set up a meeting, I couldn't even use scheduling assistant to see the invitees time conflicts for that meeting. I had to revert back to the older version because this is showstopper missing functionality.

  6. Add agenda items to individual meetings in a series

    Attendees and organizers who have a series of meetings should be able to add agenda items to a specific instance of the meeting. Currently, I have a series of 1:1s (some of which I organized and some of which I'm an attendee). Most people in our company track the agenda items for those meetings in Google docs because there's not easy way to add agenda items to a meeting without resending the entire invitation. Many meetings scheduled in a series don't have a fixed agenda for each meeting; rather, each meeting needs its own, flexible agenda. Ideally, this agenda would…

  7. focus time

    When scheduling "focus time" in calendar, Cortana should allow me to schedule this time in a different color, so it is easy for me to see where I have "mental breaks" in the day or when I will be able to do my follow-up tasks from my meetings in the day.

  10. android update time of alerts

    When an outlook alert first appears on android it says "14 minutes until meeting starts"
    However, if I look at my phone an hour later, it still says "14 minutes until
    meeting starts" which can be quite confusing, since it's no longer accurate.

    Suggestion/feature request: update the alert time as a meeting approaches so that if you see your phone "after an alert" it will be accurate as to how much time is remaining.

  12. Please make it possible to hide the blue "current time bar" from the Outlook calendar, or just make the line go away entirely!

    Please make it possible to hide the blue "current time bar" from the Outlook calendar, or just make it go away entirely! It is driving me nuts, and I just spent 30 min googling trying to find a way to hide it, but it seems there isn't one. Thank you for considering!

  13. Calendar selection for new appointments

    It would be great if there was the ability to select which calendar a new appointment is for from the appointment creation window, similar to creating new emails.

  14. Change the color of the calendar reminders when time is up.

    The reminders in Outlook calendar are blue with a message that counts down the minutes until the appointment, but it is hard to tell visually once the appointment has started because it just has a small note that changes to saying now. It would be helpful if the whole reminder flag changed from Blue to another color when the time is up or close to up.

  15. Scheduling should allow setting meeting times visually

    Right now, it's quite frustrating when trying to schedule a meeting. I have to manually change the date/time fields in order to get the schedule view to show peoples' availability.

    In Google Calendar, this is much easier and far more intuitive. There are "left" and "right" buttons allowing me to cycle between different days, and I can click on a time window itself to set the meeting time to be in that window.

    (General note -- I used Google Calendar at my last company, and it is generally easier to use and more intuitive than Outlook for Mac.)

  16. Get St. Albans updated. I hear its residents are very pernickety.

    Very small bit of feedback. The weather for my area calls the town “Saint Alban’s”. The town’s name is Saint Albans - no apostrophe - written as St. Albans. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Albans

  17. 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
