  1. Poll the time zone setting for meeting invitees

    It would be swell if Outlook could pull the current time zone setting for a user that I've added to my meeting request, and allow me to reference their local time when selecting an appropriate meeting time.

    I work for a global company and regularly have conference calls with folks around the world, as well as people hopping around the globe. It would be super helpful to see the time zone someone is currently in, and the local time of each in the scheduler UI, so I can select a meeting time that isn't at 2am for someone.

    Currently I…

  2. Enable options for displaying descriptions in Calendar / More options in general

    It would be great if there were more options for information displayed on the events on the calendar.

    For example, when in work week view it would be nice to be able to see the title of the even and then below have the option to view :
    - location
    - people invited
    - description

    Or, a the very least, make these option available when when printing the calendar to paper or PDF...

    Thanks for all your hard work!

  3. Additional colors for shared calendar & make them dark when showing active calendar

    There should be more colors for shared calendars and the colors don’t get dark enough when clicking on a calendar. I have to monitor 15 employee’s schedules to cover phones and make appointments it’s important that I know where they are at a glance. Can you add my requests to a wish list for future updates? Thanks.

  4. Provide a meal option when scheduling a meeting

    Provide a provision of ‘Does this meeting include a meal’ when scheduling a meeting. If it is set as ‘Yes’ by the organizer then folks receiving the invite respond with ‘Vegetarian Meal’ or ‘Non-Vegetarian’ or ‘No Meal’ along with the Accept/Decline/Tentative response. This keeps the organizer's focus on the meeting's content while Outlook takes care of the ancillary aspects.

  5. Disable Catagories in shared Calendars.

    There should be a way to turn off the categories for shared calendars. This seems like an invasion of privacy. Why would others need to see individuals categories? There should also be more colors and the colors don’t get dark enough when clicking on a calendar. I monitor 15 employee’s schedules to cover phones and make appointments, it’s important that I know where they are at a glance. This makes it impossible. Can you add my requests to a wish list for future updates? Thanks.

  6. Add a button with pull-down menu to calendar which displays the number of invitations similar as available on Calendar for mac.

    MAC calendar has a button with pull-down menu displaying the number of open invitations. The corresponding pull-down menu lists the invitations and has the buttons to accept, reject etc.
    A similar feature is available for lightening on Thunderbird.

  7. "window shade" option for private events in outlook calendar

    I would like to have a "window shade" option for my private events in Outlook Calendar. Sometimes, when I'm scheduling appointments with other people on my desktop computer, the person can see my entire calendar, private events and all (even though they are hidden from delegates). I would like to have a 1-click feature that applies a window shade to my private events so that others looking at my computer screen cannot read them. Currently, I label those events as "personal" and then hide them from view. However, that doesn't always work because I need to see my personal events…

  10. Allow me to delete an appt for a conference room I no longer have access to book

    I was previously in a building in which all conf rooms were restricted. Our admin book some time from the room for a recurring meeting. Later, I moved to a new team at the same company, but now I cannot delete this appt. When I attempt to do so, I got a message stating I am not allowed to book this restricted conf room. Now I get no response, but the meeting stays on my calendar. Maybe my calendar is corrupted?

  14. Automatically reject calendar conflicts for users

    Bring back feature for both Windows and Macs to be able to select automatically delete conflicting calendar invites. We all know half the people who send invites don't look to see if you are available or already booked and this will eliminate double or triple booking users.

  15. We require the ability the export Calendar items to something other than an OLM file, like XLS for example

    I would like to export my calendar items to an XLS file but Outlook only allows export to an OLM file, useless to anybody unless wanting to archive. Outlook won't even allow you to copy/paste your calendar items (in list format) to XLS. Native Mac Mail and Calendar allow it, would be great if Microsoft could do the same.

  18. Remember my selection on Subscribed Public Folders in Calendar

    I subscribe to a Public Folder. I uncheck it because I don't need to see the events/appointments on the Public Folder very often. When I leave the Calendar and come back the Public Folder is always checked again.

  19. Ability to set default meeting duration to either 25 or 55 minutes

    It is impossible to change conference rooms in time when meetings are back to back. It would be helpful to allow setting the default time to either 25 or 55 minutes.
