  1. Add more colors to calendars

    When using many calendars the 9 default colors that can be used just aren't enough.

      • Allow Drag and Drop to Calendar

        Since the dawn of outlook 2003 we had the ability to drag an email over to the calendar and create a new event. With outlook 2016 that feature has disappeared.

            • Allow multiple months in to to-do bar like in outlook 2010

              Allow multiple months in the to-do bar like in Outlook 2010. Restricting it to a single month defeats the purpose of having it there.

                • Option to customize daily work hours in Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                  Provide an option to customize daily work hours in the calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Everyone have different working or office timings. It is odd to think that Microsoft Outlook 2016 forces you to use the same work hours as provided in the Microsoft Outlook 2016.

                  • Change Future Occurrences of Series

                    Please allow changes to be made to a series of appointments such that the change only affects future occurrences. For example, a weekly 10am meeting is moved to 10:30am. As it stands now, any changes made to a recurring appointment change all historical instances of that series including any that had been individually modified. This can cause a lot of confusion when looking back at past appointments for historical record keeping. The only workaround now is to end the series and create a new series with the new details, but this seems unnecessarily cumbersome and breaks continuity with the rest…

                      • Appointment reminder for declined meeting , but leave it in the agenda of calendar .

                        Sometimes I'm not able to attend a meeting, but I want to remind that this meeting will take place. I decline this meeting, but then it doesn't stay in the agenda. I should like to have an option to leave the appointment in the agenda with a signal that I declined it.

                        • Option to set Multiple Reminders for a calendar Item in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

                          Option to allow calendar items to have multiple reminders in Outlook 2016. As an example, it would be great to be able to set one reminder for two days before and another for one hour before.

                            Cancelled meetings status should stay in the Outlook Calendar. I would like to see "Cancelled" as a status option in a meeting.

                            • follow up next working day

                              The follow up flags are great and I often use the tomorrow option to push non urgent tasks until tomorrow, however when my tasks are work-related, pushing from Friday to Saturday just creates a bunch of tasks to move again to Monday on my Saturday morning! Having an option to push the task to 'Next Working Day' would solve this problem if it were available.... I often have around 100-200 tasks so this may not be as significant a problem for those who have a lot less!

                                • Add recurring calendar options, for only business days

                                  When adding a recurring calendar item, you cannot choose business days. This would be extremely helpful, if you need reminders on the first business day each month, versus the first calendar date, which could fall on a weekend. When there are multiple reminders, Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc, this is frustrating, because you manually have to move those reminders that fall on a weekend. Please consider updating.

                                  • Year View for Calendar and Print Calendar Options in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                    Option to provide year view in Calendar and to print as well in Microsoft Outlook 2016 in year format. We cannot easily get the options to print a single page. The only settings available are "Table Style and Memo Style", without navigating through other printer-specific "Print Options". Provide print options or settings like page range, one-sided/two-sided, etc... just like every other Office app has had forever.

                                    • Accept - Do Not Send a Response

                                      Many people use the "Accept - Do Not Send a Response" option thinking that they are recording their attendance on the calendar event but not sending an email that will flood the organizer's inbox. This option should be updated to reflect the way most users interpret it, or there should be another option that serves this purpose.

                                      • Enable Bing to search for Calendar appointment locations

                                        When I enter an appointment in Calendar in Outlook 2016, it would be great to get the location using Bing.

                                        • Make 'today' stand out more in the calendar

                                          I don't like the way 'today' is highlighted in the calendar in Outlook Outlook 2016: a thin line at the top of the day, in the same color as the calendar. It's hard to see and blends in with appointments that are not categorized.

                                          Add an option to overlay color on the today's column of today's events.
