  1. Show whether calendar is tentative due to my meeting or some other

    When I have scheduled a meeting in Calendar, and the time on attendees calendar shows as tentative, it does not really distinguish between the case where it is tentative due to my meeting which they have not responded to OR because the time is tentative on their calendar due to some other meeting invite they have not responded to / some other tentatively accepted meeting.

  2. Update monthly calendar view

    Make the monthly calendar view scrollable by one week at a time. I use this in my work PC to view current jobs and those coming up on the calendar. It is very time consuming to have to change back and forth between months the last two weeks of the month

  4. Tie calendar reminders with select/deselect of calendars, if calendar deselected then alarms should stop showing.

    Tie deselection of calendars with calendar reminders, when we deselect the calendar the calendar alarms should stop showing (firing).

  5. Reminder about the end of recurring meeeting sequence

    to have a reminder (or a question) to extend the recurring meeting sequence when it is nearing the end.
    People who use recurring meetings often forget to extend them. Such reminder would help to keep the meetings running without disruptions. Otherwise, if the host choose to ignore the reminder, the recurrence would not be extended.

  7. the red time marker should only show up on today

    the red time marker should only show up on today. It is very confusing to be overlaid on the whole week. I keep thinking I'm late for something / very hard for me to glance at the right day.

  9. Canceled dates should remain visible

    I suggest you the function "Cancel date", which should cross out the date in the calendar but keep it visible, until chosen otherwise

  11. Make links in Applications Deep Links to other office Apps

    When creating meeting notes in OneNote from Outlook MAC, the link to “Open in OneNote” launches my web browser to Office365 OneNote web. It would be better if it deep-linked to the new note in the OneNote desktop app.

  12. Provide system for user to prioritize entries in Calendar so that the most urgent are listed first.

    Calendar provides "categories", but does have a system of prioritizing the order in which the categories appear on the calendar. User should be able to determine that, for example "Red" category is "priority #1" and therefore is always listed first on the calendar.

  13. 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).

  15. 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

  17. Outlook Mac 2019 (volume licensing version) directly open google agenda .ics calendars.

    Currently, having a google agenda in Outlook2019 is not possible without Office 365. My company is not using Office 365 or Sharepoint 2019, therefore I can't open my google web agenda.

  18. 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..
