  1. Outlook Meeting Update

    If you update a meeting (e.g. change room, add notes) in Outlook365 for Windows a mail goes to the invited persons starting with "Cancelled" (in German "Abgesagt"). This is quite confusing. The calender is correct; the meeting is updated with valid information.
    BUT: Why can´t the e-mail start with "Updated", which would be correct???

    If necessary I will send screenshots to illustrate this very unpleasant situation which is contionously causing trouble.

    Thanks for your attention to this matter.

  5. reminder

    The alert for a calendar reminder is not sufficient and needs to be similar to the previous version of outlook.

  7. Enhanced "Room Finder" - Meeting Room Concierge

    I'd like to enhance Room Finder to a Concierge type service - to be able to book meeting rooms based on their attributes (resources available in them), and the type of meeting I'm having.

    For example: I need a collaboration meeting with people in two meeting rooms and a couple of remote resources

    Locations = Auckland and Wellington
    Seating capacity = min number + 20% for people invited to the meeting based on their location (so if I invite 5 people from Auckland I'd get a room with a 6 pax seating capacity)
    - Video conf facility (based on needing…

  8. Online Calendar Categories

    This is concerning the online version (not downloaded) of Outlook, specifically the calendar page.
    Can you please allow us to change the names of the color categories for events? "Blue category" and "yellow category" don't help much if I have to make a separate key to keep track of my categories. I know the downloaded version allows for this, but my employer's technology will not allow me to use the downloaded version.

  9. Allow others to edit an event

    At times it is necessary for us to ensure that once someone has created an event, that specific attendees can also edit them. While you can use delegation for this, we want it to be very granular. We also don't want to propose a new time either, we want to allow full editing rights.

    A few examples include:


    • My manager creates a 1:1, I need to move it to another time which I know they are free, with edit rights I can do this without them needing to be notified needlessly


    • My colleague books a colleague facing event with key…

  10. Calendar view from today and X days forward

    Calendar in Outlook for Windows can be configured to start on Today and show X days forward (try pressing Alt-7).

    The same possibility should be implemented in Outlook on the web. As of August 2018, one can only select Day, Work week, Week and Month, all of which start on a fixed day of week.

    This new option would allow you to disregard past events of the week and focus on coming events. On a Wednesday it will show Wednesday as first day and then X days forward. On a Friday it will show Friday as first days and then…

  11. Allow ability to set calendar increments lower than 30 minutes.

    Allow calendar view to go to the 15 minute detail level as Outlook does.

  12. Group Calendars in Mail Agenda

    Events from Outlook Group calendars don't show up on the agenda in the mail web app. Although they do show up on the calendar web app, it'd be nice if you could customize which calendars display in the mail agenda.

  13. Please fix the control feature to copy calendar events from one day to another like you can with the outlook client

  14. Add groups as Booking Delegate for a meeting mailbox

    We would like to add a distribution group or a mail-enabled security group as a booking delegate for a meeting mailbox. We can add multiple users from Exchange admin center, but the method is complicated, and it might cause mistakes if there were many users to be added. It will be convenient if we are able to add groups.

  16. new meeting teams

    Please add the 'Teams' toggle switch to the short quick menu for creating a meeting (when you click in an empty spot on your calendar). Currently to make the meeting a Teams meeting we have to click 'More Options' to get this option and to toggle that switch.
    Moving it to the condensed menu would make things easier.

    Because people don't see the option as they create the meeting using the short view they often forget to add the necessary Teams details to the meeting invite (which is especially annoying for remote working during Covid-19)

  19. "My day" tab and upcoming event widget shows all selected calendars

    If you have selected other calendars to view in the Calendar, the events from these calendars also show in the "next event" (top right above email). They also show in the fly out for "My Day".

    These views should show MY calendar, not the calendar's I've selected to view along side mine. Or at least have an option to not include the other calendars in "My Day" and the "Next Event" widget

  20. Please add a toggle to go back to previous schedule assistant.

    I cannot understand why you would change the scheduling assistant to the difficult to use version in the latest update. Attendees across the top with wider view of each calendar was superior. Please add a toggle to go back to previous schedule assistant.
