  1. View Private Events on Other People's Calendar

    When creating a Private event where I have invited others to or when viewing other people's calendar, I cannot see private events on their calendar. I can go into Outlook online and see the events in their calendars but not on the desktop.

  3. Attachments

    I wish there was a way to search through meetings for everything with an attachment of a certain size. My IT dept puts mailbox limits and having 4 years of attachments sitting in calendar meetings is killing me.

  5. Calendar widget for MacOS

    You should be able to add a calendar widget for MacOS - most calendar apps have this feature (Fantastical2 for instance). This would be extremely helpful in looking at upcoming appointments without having to launch the app.

  6. Add back the ability to Send Update to only added/changed invitees to a meeting in Outlook for Mac

    I am no longer able to just send an Update to only the added/changed invitees for an appointment in the Outlook for Mac client. I have meetings that I manage with 50+ invitees, but when I add someone to the invite it sends an update to everyone instead of just the new addition.

  7. Meeting Reminders in Notification Center

    Please move meeting reminders to Notification Center instead of a standalone popup window.

    I am a heavy MAC user and utilize spaces and full screen apps constantly. Because of this I am often missing meetings because the outlook meeting reminder is limited to displaying only in desktop spaces and the full screen that I am running outlook in. if I am working in safari I miss the reminder completely. Using Notification Center would allow these notifications to show across all full screen apps and desktops and provide a consistent user experience with other Mac applications.

  9. Calendar Online Archive

    Calendar Online Archive to have parity with what is available to Outlook 2013 for PC clients. We have a 150 day retention policy in place, most of our C-Class Executives, President's, and VP's or on Mac's and are desperately asking for Calendar Archive for planning purposes.

  10. Automatic timezone update

    Automaticall update my timezone if Im on business trip and dont ask me.
    To avoid issues I should have an option for default time zone.
    So, when Im on trip my existing meetings are updated to new local time and if I create new meeting - its created in my default time zone, but shows time local to current zone in case if i would be still on trip

  11. Duplicate Calendar Events

    Duplicate Calendar Events so one Event Edited can serve as the basis for another that’s only slightly different… Duplicate Contacts, ditto…

  13. drag calendar entries to other days

    on Outlook for PC (I've used versions 2000-2016) they all supported dragging calendar entries to another day in the week view and onto any day shown in the month preview on the side. This was a great feature that I used everyday. PC Outlook also let you select multiple days in the side calendar and then they would appear in day view. You were not restricted to the day/week/month options. Please incorporate these features into Mac version.

  14. Reinstate the Go to Date feature in Calendar

    I seem to remember there was a Go to Date feature in earlier issues that made searching for historical events much easier. There was also, IIRC, the ability to skip to previous years or even decades by holding down the alt or cmd key when clicking on the month-back and month-forward arrow.

  15. Save changes without updating attendees

    Users often have to make small changes to a meeting invitation they created and do not want to send the update to all attendees who find it confusing to get multiple notices for the same meeting when nothing appears changed. For example, I scheduled s meeting, later found I had several items to prepare, so I changed the reminder notice to 2 days instead of 30 minutes so I would know I needed to get ready. It would not let me make that change and save it without updating all attendees who don't care one bit about my notification settings.…

  16. Enable Attachments to Appointments

    Enable Outlook for Mac to simply drag and drop or copy & paste any kind of file into an appointment.
    The current workaround to go online via Office 365 is simply annoying and absolutely not user friendly.

  19. Allow delegates to create Online Meetings on behalf of

    Currently delegates cannot create a Lync (or Skype for Business) Online Meeting on behalf of their manager/principal/delegator. They can create a meeting on behalf of, just not an online meeting on behalf of (see link below).

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Schedule-an-online-meeting-9ad8b538-807a-4189-aaae-e6b03990e0b4

    Please add that function as many of our admins are left out in the cold!!!

  20. Canceled meetings are not removed

    I've noticed that when someone cancels a meeting, the calendar shows canceled but it stays on. I have to manually go and delete it. When meeting is canceled, need it to be removed from the calendar.
