    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).

  2. 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.

    Or when clicking on the calendar, it would be nice if TODAY was at the top of month view, not the bottom. I want to see the next coming days of schedules, not the past without having to scroll every time.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for providing a clear signal that we should improve how we highlight “Today” on the calendar.

    We are planning to make this update in Outlook for Office 365 subscribers. We will post a subsequent status update when this is available for you to use in Outlook.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. Please do keep making suggestions and voting on others’ suggestions to help us improve the product.

    Thanks,
    Jenn

  3. Solution for Synchronization Problem - Possibility for manual matching of IMAP folders

    The possibility to correct the matching of IMAP folders, like in Outlook 2007 should be added.

    That means it should be possible to change the settings for the folders were the Sent and Deleted items should be stored.

    This is a serious problem in the German Outlook version (17 votes in microsoft comunnity): Due to wrong matching the Synchronization does not work correct. E.g. Outlook stores the sent email in a folder named "Gesendete Elemente" (sent items) and the email provider expects "sent".
