  1. Offer suggested times or "auto-pick" when scheduling meetings

    Offer suggested times or "auto-pick" when scheduling meetings.
    This is available in the PC version but not Mac. It is a fundamental calendaring software function and it is missing.

  2. Change the highlight color for the current day

    Problem: On the calendar when I am viewing/editing content on a day other than today that day is highlighted on the 30 day calendar on the left side of the window. On my Mac that highlight is so faint it blends in to the white background. Today's date is clearly highlighted as a dark blue circle. But the day I'm currently viewing is a very faint grey that I can barely see.

    For example: If today is the 16th, that day on the calendar is highlighted in dark blue. And if I am adding an appointment to the 18th, that…

    Support for adding calendars (not shared calendars) like windows version.
    In Windows I can add calendars of my colleagues (I only see free/blocke) via right-click on "my calendars". Not possible on Mac

  11. Add personal notes to calendar appointments

    Give the ability to add personal notes to calendar events. For example, if I am attending a meeting and want to remember to bring up a certain point, I should then be able to just type in a note to talk about the item.

    A reminder could also be added.

    This can currently be done within an invite but any updates to the invite will wipe any changes made to an event.

  14. Integrate Google Hangouts into the calendar

    Integrate Google Hangouts into the calendar - I'm an Office Insider (Fast) member so Google contacts & calendar are included, which is great, but the option of adding/integrating Hangouts to the calendar would be tremendous.

  16. week

    Make week numbers visible in the "day picker" in the top left corner of the calendar window (not only in the heading of the large calendar view. Just as in the Windows version of Outlook 2013.

  20. Create Calendar Appointments from a Time or Date in an Email

    When reading an email, if there is a time or date in the email, allow me to click on that time/data and create a calendar appointment for that date/time right there. This feature is enabled in OS X Mail and iOS Mail. It would be great to have it in Outlook too.
