    • Add more colors to calendars

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

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow BCC for appointment notices

                                    Some appointments I want on both my work and home calendars (e.g., personal appointments during work hours...such as doctor/dental visits), but I don't want to share my home e-mail with all of my co-workers. If I could BCC my home account, I can add the meeting notice to my home calendar without my co-workers having my home e-mail.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Option to add travel time to a meeting request in Outlook 2016

                                          When creating and when receiving meeting requests it will be great if one could add travel time before and after the meeting.
