Allow for scheduling to have fuzzy/imprecise times
Many Calendar reminders do not need to have an exact time, but rather just a time window. Example: I just need to call Mr. Jones next Friday morning; I don't need (necessarily) to call Mr. Jones at a specific time next Friday morning. These fuzzy times could be set in preferences. This would be superior to the current alternatives, which consist of (1) scheduling "Call Mr. Jones" at a specific time ("9am"), or (2) scheduling it for a time range that represents morning ("8am-11am"). Currently, with enough "fuzzy time" appointments, the schedule starts looking as if one has committed to those specific times when they are in fact still available.
I have a pool of loaner cars and i want to load one.
- I open Outlook on the Calendar screen.
- I check the Free/Busy schedule for all cars.
- I pick the car that is available.
- I schedule that car for a certain period of time.

Allow scheduling repeated events for business days. For example, if I want an event to be repeated every 20th, but a 20th is on a Saturday, set it on the business day right before the 20th. Many tax obligations here are scheduled on a fixed day of the month and when the day is weekend, we need to do it on the business day right before.
Allow for recurring invites to be scheduled only on weekdays
