    • 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.

            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

          • Provide a feature to 'Grey Out' Calendar events that have already occurred in Microsoft Outlook 2016

            Provide a feature to 'Grey Out' Calendar events that have already occurred in Microsoft Outlook 2016. It would be more visually appealing and effective if the events that have already happened (i.e. if it is Wednesday, this would occur for all events on Monday and Tuesday) were faded as compared to the events that have still yet to occur.

            • 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.

                • 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)

                  • 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…

                    • Automatically notify meeting organizer of a conference room conflict in Microsoft Outlook 2016 before sending an invite

                      Automatically notify meeting organizer of a conference room conflict in Microsoft Outlook 2016 before sending an invite as It would save a lot of time and effort in reoccurring as well as one off meeting organizer. A notification that there was a conflict before sending the original invite would be a huge time-saver. A simple popup "Your meeting request would be declined because there are room conflicts on these dates..." would suffice.

                      • Allow option to un-decline a meeting when a clashing meeting is cancelled

                        1) I accept a meeting
                        2) A second clashing meeting comes in.
                        3) I decline the first meeting as the second one is more important
                        4) The second meeting is rescheduled or cancelled
                        5) Now, there should be a way to 'get back' whatever meeting I declined in that slot. Both an indication in the calendar UI that something used to be there and was declined, and a way to re-accept that deleted thing.

                        • 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 customization of the number of appointments shown in To-Do bar (calendar view)

                            The task bar on the right should show as many future appointments as could fit in the space. Outlook 2016 appears to be limiting appointments shown in the "To-Do bar" to only one week in advance, which is just terrible. I have plenty of space left that could be used to show additional appointments, which is very helpful in planning my time, especially when there are important meetings coming up that may be more than one week in advance. I would prefer having an unlimited timeframe for appointments, whether this is by default or through customization of the To-Do bar.

                                The option to cancel an appointment (not meeting). And once it has been cancelled, be able to make a note, like "rescheduled for ____", and still be able to see that it was on the calendar and what happened to it. And then another good option would be to be able to show "All Appointments" or "Only Active Appointment" or "Only Cancelled Appointments", etc.

                                  • Ability to respond to meetings from Reading pane.

                                    It would be very helpful and time saving to respond to a meeting invite when reviewing it through the reading pane instead of having to open it.

                                      Add away message to a calender post. When adding for example vacation to the calender, you could set an away message, so when you reach your vacation, the away message is already set.

                                      • Option to convert meetings to Skype meeting without canceling and re scheduling

                                        If I schedule a regular meeting and later I decide to switch to skype meeting I have to cancel the first meeting and then reschedule a skype meeting.
                                        A button to directley convert a meeting to skype meeting would be a great idea.

                                        • Option to hide the date navigator and keep the coming appointments in the to-do bar

                                          I want to have both my tasks and upcoming appointments in the To-do bar. In previous versions it was possible to show only the appointments and switch off the date navigator. This made it possible to see all my current tasks and the next meetings. There is no room for a date navigator that I do not need to have on my screen all the time.
