        The Outlook team is working on this update. We will add support for adding and updating events on family calendars as part of an overall improvement to shared calendars in Outlook.

        We will post a subsequent status update when the shared calendar improvements are available for you to use in Outlook. Our current ETA is to begin releasing to subscription customers who are using Outlook 2016 this summer (July 2018).

      • Provide a feature or option to assign colors to Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

        This is not for the "categories" for color-coding each entry... those haven't really changed, and although I would love more color options, it works. BUT, I'm really sad that the new "Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016" Outlook calendar color options have been severely reduced and honestly folks, these colors are sad. Get rid of pink. Forever. Or make it the 30th choice. So hard to look at. We need more than 9 options... I regularly have far more than 9 calendars open and need to be able to quickly differentiate. It is nice that you can now dedicate a specific…

        • Highligth each months in different colors to seperate months in Outlook 2016

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

          • 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".

            • 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.

                  • When you dismiss a meeting reminder, then the meeting is rescheduled to a date in the future, the reminder should be reset to appear again.

                    After a reminder for a meeting is dismissed, it WILL NOT appear again in the event that the meeting is rescheduled to a later date. When a meeting is rescheduled, Outlook should check for the dismissed reminder, and if the new meeting time is far enough in the future based upon the selected reminder time span, it should reset the reminder to occur again. I'm guessing there are technical reasons for not doing this, because it's something that should have been implemented years ago.

                    • Buffer Time in calendar of Outlook 2016

                      Allow user to set up "buffer time" within appointments and meetings. For example, I have an hour long, out-of-office meeting at 4pm and it takes 20 minutes to get there. I'd like to block my calendar from 3:40pm - 5:20pm, but show clearly that the meeting is from 4-5pm.

                      • 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.

                                • 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

                                  • Provide an option for users to select account for appointments in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                    Currently, when opening a new appointment, Outlook will pick the account of the folder that the user is currently in. However, that leads to mistakes at times creating the appointment in the wrong calendar. In order to change, the appointment draft must be discarded and a new one opened. It would be much better to allow to just change the account, the way Outlook allows to change the From account in an email message.

                                        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???

                                        • Provide an option to print calendar in weekly format in Outlook 2016

                                          In Agenda format, each day includes day of the week, but if you add the task list, it included tasks from previous weeks that are completed. There is no apparent way to fix this and it is annoying and not helpful. In the calendar format, the task list prints correctly, but the boxes for each day only show the date, not the day of the week, which is also annoying and not helpful. Providing an option to print calendar in weekly format in Outlook 2016 to overcome the above mentioned drawbacks, would be beneficial.
