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.

This would be very helpful. My calendar frequently is double-, triple- or even quadruple booked, and I often times have to decide which meeting to attend. As the OP noted, sometimes meetings get canceled, and then I might want to attend one of the other meetings. Being able to show declined meetings would be very helpful.

Would like to have a quick toggle for 'show/hide declined meetings'.
Tom Bubenik commented
This is a great idea. Often, meetings get moved or rescheduled, and not knowing that a meeting was previously declined causes many problems. Please enable this capability.
agree - happens all the time. I have learned to email the entire team my decline vs decline the meeting in the invite. Not very helpful to the meeting organizer if they are checking the status but it is the only solution - super annoying in this age of technology.
I find it strange that this is not already an option. How often do people's schedules change...

"Delete" and "decline" are not the same thing. It comes to something when google calendar is better than what you are offering. I agree with all the other recent comments. Needs to be done quick

I completely agree. I would use the feature almost every day.

Microsoft, this is literally the third highest request. At least give us an acknowledgement.
This option is also necessary, if you are unable to attend a meeting, but still need to know when the meeting is held, if you have information to request or actions etc. to follow up on after the meeting.
show declined meetings in Outlook
SB AVAILABLE, flexibility is a good thing
Show declines directly in the calendar - warn if there are no accepts
This is a no-brainer, it is terrible that Microsoft still hasn't implemented this.
Utterly ridiculous that this is not already a feature
We can allow cancelled meetings to continue to show up in the calendar, but not declined ones. Where is the logic in that?
Jo Aked commented
Yes! This is such a useful and basic function I can't believe I've lost it with the switch from Google Mail to Microsoft Teams. Grr.

It is a very necessary feature.
The need seems to be very obvious and doesn't need an explanation. However, I will still give one -
I don't see a way if I make up my mind to join a meeting I already declined. I would expect it to still show up in my invite as declined.
For example, a lunch invite I declined as I had a meeting at the same time. But the meeting got canceled and now I can't go to the lunch :-(
It's crazy things so straightforward stay open for so long. The business need is clear to anyone who has ever used a calendar. Shifting to Google becomes a necessary evil when you stack up all the functionality deficiencies and compare Drive to Sharepoint, etc.
