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.
While this request is being reviewed for future consideration please try this workaround solution:
• Click on the Deleted Items Folder
• Click on View tab on the command bar
• Choose “Change View – Manage View” command on the command bar
• Click “New” in the right to create a new
• Name the view “Calendar”
• Pick the Day/Week/Month “type of view”
• Click OK. Now you should get dialog that lets you customize the view.
• Now click on Columns –
Change the select available fields in bottom-left to All Appointments Fields
Select the “Start” field on the left and Click Start → on the right.
Select the “End” field on the left and Click End → on the right.
• Click on Filter…
Click on the “Advanced Tab”
Click on the Field Drop Down – All Mails Field – “Message Class”
You should have condition as “Contains” .. in Value field type … “IPM.Appointment”
Click to Add to List (below value)
• Click OK on dialog containing Columns & Filter button
• Make sure “Calendar” view you created is selected and click on “Apply View”
• By the way, you can use “Change View” to “Compact” to get back to normal look of the Deleted Items folder
This is basic functionality that should exist with a check box. This exists in GSuite. A work around is ****.
I set meetings I can't attend, but want visibility to, as Tentative. PLEASE make an option to see declined meetings in the calendar.

TWENTY PAGES of people looking for this feature going back at least to 2016. Some on, Microsoft, this is a basic calendar feature

I never decline meetings anymore. They are all set to tentative, because I still want to see that they are happening and have resources from the meeting available. Please make it so that declined meetings can still be shown on the calendar.
To have the possibility of seeing or not the meetings refused in the agenda (with a special diplayed aspect for example, in grey or something else).
Give the option that I can still see the declined meetings on my calendar, so even if I am not attending the meeting I can still remember that it is still running.
spell check please
It would be great if the meeting room calendar would indicate the item which is declined.
Currently, only meeting organizer can see the declined reply from the meeting room as it doesn’t have enough availability. We concern that other users may not find the declined meeting and they could still plan it as an active meeting. So, it would be great if the declined meeting would be visualized with a strike-out line etc, in the meeting room calendar.

Users should have the ability to decline a meeting so the meeting host is aware, but to stay up to date on changes to the meeting. For instance, I may not be able to attend but I want the meeting attachments or if the meeting changes times I could attend.

I just wasted 45 mins because I attended a meeting that was rejected by my invited guest. My guest didnt use the propose new time feature, instead they wrote in the email some alternative times. I didnt reschedule immediately, forgot about it, but then forgot that the meeting I proposed was declined.
When a meeting is pending acceptance, it goes into your calendar with a dashed boarder and diagonal stripe bg, indicating it is yet to be confirmed. If a meeting is declined by the only invited guest, there should be a red boarder, or a warning ! icon to indicate that the meeting was declined. This should be visible on the calendar and in the app.

Perhaps move declined meetings to a "Declined" calendar that can be turned on or off
Jag vill kunna avböja mötesförfrågningar i kalendern men vill kunna välja att de ändå visas i kalendern efter att jag tackat nej.
I want to be able to decline meeting requests in the calendar but want to be able to choose to still show them in the calendar after I declined.

A basic feature in any calendar program.
FYI this is a duplicate request.
Please go to the below request and vote on it there. It as almost 5000 votes at this point.
I cannot begin to fathom why this is a "feature" that we have to ask for!!
Even freakin LOTUS NOTES has this.
Also, this is not an "improvement" we are looking for. We are demanding that you FIX the mistake you made when you rolled out this program.
Why are there are updates from MS Admin on this request given that it has almost 5000 votes at this point?

In addition to the uses listed below, sometimes I cannot make a meeting but would like to receive updates regarding the meeting (usually when a user hits Respond > Reply All within a meeting invite). Would really like this feature added, thanks!
Very useful option, used in Gmail. It is important to keep the visibilty of declined meetings in our agenda. Not visible means forgotten and lost, even if still accessible in deleted items.
At least allow declined meetings to be recovered. Especially if the date has not past yet or the event is part of a series. People's schedules change all the time. It is completely conceivable that a user might not be available for a meeting, but later realizes they can go.

Not having this feature alone is pushing my organization to switch from Outlook to Google, which is going to be a huge undertaking
