Recurring Meeting Button to Change Only Future Invites
Office 365 Outlook calendar. Recurring meeting. When the owner of a recurring meeting makes changes that impact all the recurring meeting invites on the calendar, it would be nice if there was a radio button that allows the owner to only have the changes applied to all invites going forward from that day. Essentially breaking the link and leaving the past invites as they were, only changing future invites. It is nice to have a historical records of past invites of who participated, timing and dates, etc.
There is a very similar thread (there must be thousands, as this is such an obvious and important feature to have) on answers.microsoft.com, FROM MAY 2018 and a Volunteer Moderator responded : "They are fixing it, at least for Office 365/Outlook.com mailboxes. No ETA - probably in the Office 2019 time frame."
THAT WAS MORE THAN TWO YEARS AGO. @Microsoft, is this feature actually in the works? I'm sure you have many engineers who could code this in their sleep. Please please pretty please let them do it.

Outlook calendar: When it comes to recurring events that need to be edit, most of the time if we edit somethings that's been recurring, we need the change to only affect the ones we are editing and any moving forward. I'm a virtual assistant and have several clients. Some use Office 365 and some use GSuite. While I prefer Office 365, some of my clients prefer GSuite. One of the features Google Calendar has is when you go to edit a recurring event, it gives you three options to choose from: edit just the one event; edit all events; edit that event plus all those moving forward. The last one where you can edit the event you're currently plus all those moving forward is desperately needed in Outlook. I just adjusted a recurring event in my calendar unfortunately all my past events also adjusted. The problem is my past events didn't change the time they were at. However, they have changed moving forward. Please add this feature as I know I'm not the only one who needs it. Thanks.
