  1. "CALL IN" Option for Meeting Invitation

    Adjust the Invitation Response Options:


    • Yes, I'll Attend... IN PERSON

    • Yes, I'll Attend... CALLING IN

    • Maybe

    • No

    Meeting Rooms are booked based on the number of attendees that say they will be attending a meeting. BUT there is no option to say that someone is calling in vs attending in person. So Meeting Rooms are booked based on the "YES" responses but the room size may be far larger than is necessary because of those calling in.

  2. Bring back the ability to modify calendar invites

    With the new version of Outlook, I cannot change an invitation that is sent to me. I travel extensively internationally and my calendar remains in the Eastern time zone and I manually change invitations to reflect local time. Another example… I need to fill out a timesheet every week and if an hour meeting lasts two hours, I cannot change my calendar to reflect the actual time. So I have to remember at the end of the week to reflect the correct duration or manually input it into Outlook. Both options are not desirable. In the old version if you…

  7. Mac Meeting Notification

    For Mac, Outlook utilizes its own notification system. It would be great to see Outlook be able to utilize the default Mac notification system for Calendar.

  8. Check the folder synchronization for calendar.

    The latest version (16.26 (19060901)) has issues when a new invite is received, it's not showing on the Outlook client. It shows online, though.

    The issue happens when I send my computer to sleep and Outlook is disconnected from the network. I have to quit Outlook and open again to get the updated calendar entries.

  9. I'd like to see a view similar to the Outlook for Windows Daily Task List view.

    Outlook for Windows has a Daily Task List view that shows calendar and tasks for that day. It's a useful view for working through tasks.

  10. 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.

  11. Add a 2-Week View to the Calendar

    Week, Work Week and Month view are all great, but I don't need to see weeks BEHIND my current week when forecasting. It would be great to have a calendar view for 2 weeks.

    The current week would be displayed the same as Week or Work Week, and the following week could be displayed either in Week or Work Week view, or it could be condensed down to the month-style view.

  12. I suggest that events and meetings stored in the MacOS Calendar app should be able to fully integrated into Outlook for MacOS.

    Users should be able to add/edit/delete events and meetings from their MacOS Calendar app in Outlook for MacOS.

    Particularly in the case where .ics files can be imported for the events, Outlook for MacOS should fully support them just like it does on Windows.

  13. Check a meeting is saved before closing the window when you click send.

    If there is a connection hickup before or during creating a meeting then when you click send all your hard earned typing is thrown to the wind and the meeting is never saved. I end up with new appointment on my calendar but noone is invited.

  14. Calendar Meeting Control

    In previous versions, I was able to have complete control of my calendar meetings, whether I owned the meeting or not. Currently, I'm only able to customize my owned meetings and I would like to bring back the functionality to control all meetings. For example, I have two meetings overlapping, but will be leaving one meeting early and attend another. I'm now not able to fix the overlap...

  15. Scheduling assistant only shows busy times of main calendar

    There should be a way to show events that mark a user as busy from calendars outside of the primary calendar. Currently I can only see busy times of invitees if the events are on their primary calendar. It ignores all of the events that people have on their other calendars.

  17. Contact person menu with meeting create

    The person contact menu you should bring back the ability to create a meeting with that contact directly from the menu. This used to be a feature and now requires many steps to complete.

  19. calendar/agenda with date, time, weather on log in.

    it would be nice to have a calendar/agenda pop-up upon sign in.
