  1. Countdown clock for important events (for example 31 days until exam) as a daily flag on the calendar

    for example a note on each day that states # of days until an event, such as year-end reporting, or exams, or big events. Also, should have a place to put the number of the week of the year. Many corporate calendars have a number for each week of the fiscal year and refer to deadlines by that week.

    • Send meeting updates only to those who accepted?

      Even in Outlook 2016, it's still only possible to send meeting updates to -all- recipients but much more logical and user friendly is the default option to only send to ricipients who accepted the meeting request; or at least skip those who already declined the meeting request. Please include as default feature.

      • Hide meetings that are marked as private when presenting (when another display is connected)

        It would be really nice if private meetings dissapeard when I'm sharing my screen on another display. Or even better, if the meetings didn't disappear but the subject and other information was visually changed to "Private".

              • Calendar permissions transferred to Apps for Office (add-in)

                Calendar sharing: permissions transferred to Apps for Office (add-in).

                Today if I launch an app for office from a calendar for which I have the full delegation rights (permission level 'owner'), the add-in still picks info from my Exchange.
                Example: authentication token stored in Exchange storage is mine and not the one for the calendar/add-in I have the delegation.

                  • Improve Calendar and Task Management in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                    With respect to Calendaring and Tasks, I would recommend following advanced features to organize work:

                    (1) Ability to create appointments and/or Tasks from an incoming email. For example, select a text in the mail and right click and add an appointment or a task
                    (2) If a task can't be completed in one go, ability to break the task into sub-tasks with its own durations and create an appointment against the task to ensure that that planning is complete. This could be done through either manual entry of sub-task (with parent task) or provide a dialog to split the same…

                    • Users should be able to print merged calandars rather than just select one calendar. Holidays , appointments, birthdays etc.

                      Presently users can only print one calendar at a time.

                      It should be possible to print merged calendars so that appointments, shared calendars, birthdays and holidays can all be seen on a single sheet

                      • Integrate Tasks into calendar entries - not just at calendar base or moved/copied

                        Integrate Tasks into Calendar entries - without losing them in Tasks by having to move to Calendar OR creating an extra entry by having to copy them into the Calendar.
                        To integrate the Tasks directly into the Calendar instead of only showing as a Tasks Box at the bottom of the screen in Calendar view (to show like a meeting/appointment entry)

                        • Auto complete the address field for the Location. so that if I am spelling a street address, it auto completes most likely location mapped

                          Auto complete the address field for the Location. so that if I am spelling a street address, it auto completes most likely location mapped.

                          if I am meeting someone it is tedious to go to google, get there mapped address, then paste it into the location bar, why cant the calendar find an address for me from Bing or something???

                            It would be great if separate months are highlighted in different colors, so that the months could be easily distinguished.

                                If you only intend for certain people to be invited to a meeting, have a box to check for the meeting organizer that stipulates "Do not allow meeting to be forwarded."

                                • Bring Back Offline Meeting Notes

                                  It seems in a recent update we lost the ability to take offline meeting notes in OneNote for calendar meetings. Now it seems the layout from clicking Meeting Notes has changed (seems more clunky now) and it seems to force you to send the notes link to attendees.

                                  • Outlook Today has been the same for 20 years at least!

                                    It would be nice to be met by a up-to-date dashboard when you open Outlook every morning - A nice overview over the last happenings, tasks of the day, thumbnails of the latest attached files, persons you have been in touch with etc..and also the possibility of sorting tasks by category etc. Maybe add some new colors...?

                                    • Allow reminder before END of appointment. Or allow a negative value for reminder offset.

                                      I often need to be notified before END of some appointment or meeting. The current reminders are only allow to be notified before the appointment start.

                                      • NEED gridlines on calendar!

                                        Please bring back the grid lines for calendars. When looking at multiple calendars it is very challenging without grid lines.

                                            At Microsoft we pride ourselves on being customer focused and we apologize for the frustration that our decision to remove the FindTime add-in has caused for Outlook for Windows users.

                                            We are committed to using important customer feedback received in this situation to inform our decisions, moving forward. We are working with urgency to re-enable the FindTime add-in as fast as we can.

                                            Stay tuned for updates.

                                            Thanks – Outlook Calendar Team
