  1. 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.

  2. Add BCC, CC as well as FYI field to meeting requests in Outlook 2016

    I would like the option to send meetings requests with BCC, CC so all information about all invitees is not shared with everyone that is invited

    Also, Outlook calendar entries need BCC, CC – without showing these and need to extend them to Skype as well as Microsoft Teams Meetings.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for providing a clear signal that we should prioritize this new feature.

    We are planning to support this feature in Outlook for Office 365 subscribers. We will share an updated status when engineering work for this feature begins.

    Thanks again and please feel free to continue up-voting and commenting on this suggestions.

  3. Change ownership of calendar event in Outlook 2016

    Sometimes the owner of a meeting (or, more often, meeting series) is on vacation or changes jobs; it would be nice if they could assign ownership of an instance (for vacation) or the full series (for job changes) to someone else. Also provide an option to create a meeting on someone's behalf without being included in the meeting.

  4. Contact ONLY Individuals who have not replied to a meeting request

    You should be able to (under tracking) easily email or reach out to those who have not responded to an outlook invite to a meeting request. The only way I see it can be done now, is to hand extract those individuals and resend a new meeting request.

  6. 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…

  7. Increase the number of color options in the Outlook Calendar palette from 9 to 16-25, increase contrast, and allow user editing of colors.

    I find that I cannot change the color of agenda items or calendar items for my email accounts in Microsoft Outlook. I use various Android apps on my tablet and phone, that allow me to show Agenda items and Calendar items. If I use gmail, I can easily select a color, whereas with Outlook accounts I cannot change the color to suit my preferences. Also provide an option or feature to set different events with different colors in Calendar as well as in Categories in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

  9. A series of recurring past appointments should not be changed just because I change the end date or the number of appointments.

    Calendar is always full of recurring appointments. Often my clients need to change a single appointment to another day or to cancel it completely. They nearly always have a set amount of weeks in which their training lasts. Therefore, if a lesson is cancelled in advance, the total amount of appointments must remain the same but only the end date changes. Whenever I try to change the end date, the whole series must be reset and then past changes (such as changing a single appointment from a Tuesday to a Thursday) will be lost. Also, if I need to change…

  10. Outlook Meeting Response Option of "INFORMATION ONLY"

    Meetings as FYI Only -

    Please add a fourth meeting response option such as "Information Only" which automatically responds "Decline" but leaves the meeting info on your calendar. The meeting response would also automatically show the calendar as "FREE" with "No Reminder". This allows the user to change their response without having to sift through deleted emails or respond tentative leaving others to guess as to your meeting participation when you have no intention of going at all.

  11. Decline but not participating

    Today we can only chose from "Accept", "Tentative" or "Decline" when somebody propses or invites to a meeting. A lot of times you need to know about the meeting and get the meeting notes but not participate, for ex. for exacuative people, people in a high leadership role etc. My suggestion is that we have a "Decline not participating" option so that we still have the meeting in or calenders, get the meeting notes, updates for next meeting etc.

  12. Start appointments and meetings delayed

    Since Januar 2019 we have the calendar options to end an appointment early. It would be nice to also delay the start time by e.g. 5 minutes.

  13. Copy an existing meeting into a new meeting

    Allow the copying of an existing meeting into a new meeting that can be edited for content, attendees, time, etc., and then sent. This dramatically decreases the work effort of scheduling meetings and reduces friction between your users and the software.

  14. Please highlight the day of the week in the calendar

    I would like the day of the week to be highlighted across the column. I would also like the hour to have an indicator line going across this hour through the days of the week.

  16. Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one

    Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one would be the best option in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Being able to clone a past meeting would be good instead of copying all the details again.

  17. Have option to revert meeting "Title" field to its old area when creating new meeting.

    Since the latest update new email and new meeting are not consistent as to where we write the Title or Subject. It would be better to have the field in the same area as it was before.

  18. Add voting buttons in meeting request in Outlook 2016.

    Add voting buttons in meeting request in Outlook 2016. It is very handy to have a voting button so the meeting organizer can receive responses for the votes along with accept/decline!

  20. Ability to send the meeting invitation with optional days/times.

    Sometimes it is necessary to invite people with two or three options but only one of them should be accepted. All options should be visible at one time in the calendar and the organizer of the meeting should get an overview of the participants feedback (acceptable/perhaps/declined) in a table with a summary how many participants are available for each option to decide the day/time. Different meeting rooms (one for each schedule) should be accepted as well. Once the decision is made, the unused options should be declined automatically.
