  3. Create new follow up meeting

    Once a meeting is complete and a goal has not been achieved, people have a habit of moving a meeting to a new time slot instead of creating a new follow up meeting losing all history of the previous meetings.

    A quick click "Create follow up meeting" would make keeping history of meetings in place and quickly find the right time slot to follow up.

  5. Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters).

    Allow color coding for large blocks of time (weeks, months, quarters). Color coding events is great, but it would be super helpful to be able to color code large blocks of time. Project based scheduling would benefit from this feature.

  6. Extend the disable date for the Mac Outlook Webex plug in

    The current date to disable the injection based Outlook plug in on Mac was previously June and is now October. Most users are not aware of this change and development/planning is still underway to convert users to the add in framework. No formal notice/notification has been provided and the dates seem somewhat fluid. We would like to ask that you extend the disable date and push towards the end of the year (as previously advertised), and set a firm date so the other providers/vendors have time to enhance their add in features.

  7. Configurable "Show As" options

    With the Work From Home and people needing to control their calendars and make visible they are assisting kids with school work or caring for elder parent or putting breaks for wellness. Would be nice to have a new status and color to represent these so others booking meetings know you are not avalable.

  8. Add Working from Home to the "Free, Tentative, Busy, Out of Office" list.

    In the world of Covid-19 almost all of our employees are working from home. We we do get back to the office it will not be in full-force even post-covid. Would it be possible to add a Working from Home or Working Remotely option to the drop-down menu for status?

  10. Allow a user, to make the meeting outlook request, that is sent to another user, a specific color instead of the typical default calendar.

    Allow a user, to send a meeting outlook request with a Color choice of the the senders preference-Like red-and have that color preference transmit to the recipents outlook...with the purpose of it standing out since it is a different color.

  11. Show relative time in reminders even when they cross into a new day

    Reminders for events that happen at midnight use an absolute time (e.g. "Tomorrow, at 00:00") whereas all other meetings count down with relative times (e.g. "in 15 minutes"). It would be my preference to have it default to the relative time (for example, if it was 23:45, the reminder would show "in 15 minutes") even if it crosses into a new day, or at least have it be configurable to show relative times.

  13. Create "Quick Add" Template Calendar Events

    It would be great to be able to create template events that can quickly be added by a single click or in the right-click menu. For instance, I like to pre-plan my week and fill up time with "focus time" or make sure breaks are scattered in. It seems silly to have to create a new event, change the privacy, category, reminder every single time when I do this ~15 times/week.

  15. attendees

    Make scheduling view available for all meetings and not just when the user is the organiser. New Outlook for Mac doesn't give access to the scheduling view for accepted meetings. It also doesn't allow the complete list of attendees to be seen where there is a large number of them. Scheduling view is useful to see who is attending, and sometimes look for other times that might be suitable when alternative times or follow-up meetings are required.

  16. Make it easier to add someone to a meeting if they DECLINE but change mind

    Have the ability add someone back into a meeting easily if they previously declined by letting me change their status or be able to FORWARD from the view where the meeting is open. There is no FORWARD option when the meeting is open (edit mode). :( It is only visible when I am not in the meeting and right click or highlight and go to the top of the screen.

  18. End meetings early for Outlook for Mac

    As described on this page, please add the ability to end meetings early for parity on the Windows version of Office 365 the way it's described below.

    Especially during these times of this pandemic, having a built in mechanism to allow for time after meetings to check on family and prepare for next tasks.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

    End meetings early

    If you're using Outlook for Microsoft 365, you can now have Outlook end your meetings a few minutes early. This can help you build in travel time between meetings. You can choose a different duration for meetings under one hour and meetings…

  19. Change the word "subject" to "objective" when creating a meeting.

    This will force the person creating the meeting to focus on the outcome of the meeting and state it when inviting others to participate.
