Enable an option to display declined meetings
Enable an option to display declined meetings in teh calendar (in settings). Often initially one is not available for a meeting, but then due to changes of schedule might be able to join, but since that meeting is not displayed in calendar, simply forgets about that. I found that option very helpful in Google mail that we used up to now in the company.

I agree with "Anonymous" on Sept. 3rd..."Here is what I want: When I decline a meeting, by default, I want it to not show up in my calendar, but I want Outlook to remember it as if it is still in my calendar (just hidden). Then I want a toggle button called "show hidden meetings", so if I click on that, suddenly all of the meetings that I have declined appear in the calendar, so that I can click on them to review the meeting info/attendees and possibly change my accept/decline response. Then, when I am done reviewing, I can toggle the declined meetings back to hidden state."
This feature is definitely necessary. My commitments change regularly and I used this almost daily in Google. Please consider adding this functionality. THX!

Afficher une réunion refusée sur mon calendrier
Show a declined meeting on my calendar
Maintenir l'invitation refusée visible dans le calendrier au statut disponible
Keep the declined invitation visible in the calendar to the available status
Outlook devrait proposer quand on refuse une invitation de choisir si on souhaite qu’elle reste visible dans l’agenda ou pas … en effet, parfois, il est interessant de garder en tête des reunions qu’on a refusées (par exemple pour penser à demander un retour aux perticipants ou autre ..)
Outlook should offer when we refuse an invitation to choose if we want it to remain visible in the calendar or not ... indeed, sometimes it is interesting to keep in mind meetings that have been refused (for example to think about request a return to the participants or other ..)

Keep declined meetings on the calender without blocking the time. Needed for frequently changing schedule. What I decline today, I might be able to attend tomorrow
Enable an option where accepted vs declined invites can be uploaded into Excel
Permettre le maintien de l'affichage dans le calendrier Outlook des réunions refusées
Allow the display of rejected meetings in the Outlook calendar
Aujourd’hui les réunions refusées sont systématiquement enlevées du calendrier sans aucun moyen de pouvoir les laisser afficher.
C’est une information qui est cependant utile dans certain cas.
Today refused meetings are systematically removed from the calendar without any means of being able to display them.
This information is however useful in some cases.

This should be a functionality of highest priority for Microsoft. As per previous comments, the ability of calendar to display declined meetings in the calendar.

This is a must have feature. Eager to see it asap

Please make this change, Outlook! I lose track of meetings that don't show up. Sometimes I want to follow up on a meeting that I wasn't able to attend, and there is no way to look back at my week and follow up! Also, sometimes I need to change my response, and digging through deleted emails is not a solution.

Microsoft, any update on this?
HOW IS THIS STILL NOT A FEATURE!
Coming from Google (due to career change) I can't believe this isn't available in Outlook.
I can't comprehend why it wouldn't stay there (greyed out or lines though it or whatever), if you want it gone just highlight and delete.
Please make this a reality!

This needs to be put in place a we all have busy life with lots of different meetings, which keep on changing. If the Declined meetings could be viewed in calendar, then we become more adaptable to calendar changes. we will also need the option that we can accept the meeting invitation, after it is declined.
enable a tickbox option for people who want that setting - i.e. the default is that the meeting disappears from the calendar, but a user can tick a box that means declined invitations still appear in the calendar (greyed out or similar)
I would offer a compromise alternative. Rather than keeping Declined meetings on the calendar, which may not always be the desired outcome, add another acceptance option. Leave "accept" for accepted and "decline" for declined, but just as "tentative" means "I might attend", add an "doubtful" option to mean "I probably will not attend". A doubtful response would leave it on your calendar but show the time as free.
Just show as faded out or crossed through, but still there so the user knows it's happening (to follow up, or if they become free)
How has this stlil not happened?!
It’s desirable feature because even if I can’t attend a meeting, sometimes there certain to-dos for these meetings I cannot attend.
