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 was recently forced to switch to Outlook from Google Suites and there are so many "missing" features. Declined meetings should DEFINITELY be enabled to show on calendars.
I need declined meetings to stay on my calendar but only be visible to me (not anyone else I share my calendar with).
Absurd that this is not standard, or at minimum an option!
How is this not an option already? It's really crucial . thanks!

Please ADD this feature. The ability to see ALL meetings is a necessity!! There are times with events change and you would be able to attend an originally declined meeting if the event/meeting remained on your calendar to see.

Please add this! It would be wonderful to be able to assist me with making sure I have meetings covered that I cannot attend!

When is this going to be added!?!? It’s sooooo necessary!
This is an important feature to me, not the least because the Google calendar had it - and now we switched to Outlook.
It happens somewhat frequently that I decline a meeting that overlaps with another meeting that is more important and the more important meeting subsequently gets moved such that I can and want to attend the previously declined meeting.
However, since it is invisible in the trash bin, I would not even realize that there was this other meeting that I might have declined weeks ago.
So: PLEASE. Thank you!
Please create a way to show declined meetings on Outook. We need them for references.

This feature should become part of the coming updates.
Please add this feature
I am baffled that this isn't an option. Show it to me as the user, but not to others trying to book time on my calendar. Simple.
Kind of outrageous that this isn't an option given the customer feedback here. As one person wrote, it's a no brainer.
Yes please! It should be visible only by me and free for the others. But to know when, where and who was there even I declined is very important.
"Decline and keep in my calendar" where so easy and useful!
Google Calendar has this feature and I think it would be incredibly useful in Outlook. It is useful for managing a team and ensuring if you cannot attend, that your team have it covered.
I loved this feature in Google. This is really helpful if other meetings on my calendar get canceled I can then attend something that was previously declined.

This is such a no-brainer. Please enable this function!
Please enable this option!
I regularly used the "decline and keep" function in previous calendar, and really miss it in this version. Please bring it to this calendar. Thanks!

Not only O2016, make it standard everywhere including web version.
