How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Ability to get the count of attendees invited/declined/accepted/busy in Microsoft Outlook 2016

Want number/quantity of attendees invited/declined/accepted/busy to meeting/appointment in scheduling assistant. Also there should be a possibility to highlight the row for a selected meeting attendee in the Outlook scheduling assistant. This will improve the readability: when scheduling with lots of attendees, it’s hard to discern which person is unavailable when all you see are blobs of blue with no name connected to them. Allow the feature of busy search to identify users that are tied up with meetings and appointments as well.

Provision of a button on the invite listing names and titles plus how they are connected on an organisational chart would be an added benefit as it will be able to list the roles and position of the attendees. When receiving an invite with new names, it is helpful to understand their business-place in the organisation.

    Allow the feature of busy search to identify users that are tied up with meetings and appointments, rather than having to use scheduling assistant within the new meeting screen.

    Meetings should give you a headcount for the number of people who accepted an invitation so you can more easily plan events or make reservations.

    There should be a possibility to highlight the row for a selected meeting attendee in the Outlook scheduling assistant. By clicking in the box for the attendee name, the corresponding row in the scheduling view gets highlighted. This will improve the readability: when scheduling with lots of attendees, it's hard to discern which person is unavailable when all you see are blobs of blue with no name connected to them.
