  1. support left and right arrow keys in scheduling assistant

    When in the Scheduling Assistant, I seem to instinctively try to use the right and left arrow keys to adjust the meeting time.

    No such luck!

    Please support the left and right arrow keys for adjusting the meeting time and duration.

    Perhaps Shift+<arrow key> or Ctrl+<arrow key> could be used to extend or contract the duration, while the left or right arrow keys by themselves could change the start time.

    It would be so much quicker!

  2. Send Calendar via Email "Availability Only" should actually send only availability

    Currently the "Availability Only" option inserts both available and unavailable times into the email, attaches an ICS file that contains only unavailable times, and inserts a calendar view of available days. Instead, it should insert only the available times into the email, and the ICS file should also contain items for the available times only. The calendar grid should not be included.

  4. meeting invitation right click on name

    There used to be a feature when you right clicked on someone's name in a mail thread, one of the options was to create a meeting with just that person.

    That feature went away in the latest update. Miss it a lot, takes me longer to look up their availability now.

  11. Dismiss meeting reminder when joining Skype for Business meeting

    When Outlook pops up a reminder window for a SfB meeting and I click "Join Online", Outlook should be smart enough to that I have acknowledged the reminder and therefore wish it to be dismissed. Why do I need to go back to the reminder window and hit "Dismiss" after I have joined the meeting?

  12. Provide a feature to rename the default Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to rename the default Calendar in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as it is useful when we have multiple O365 accounts(private, company) and when working on a long term project, and we get an event from customers, all of them have the default calendar named 'calendar' making it easier to distinguish one from the other in a list.

  14. Duplicate Meeting Option in Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to duplicate a meeting from within the meeting / appointment. This is especially useful for meetings that are multi-locations, so they can create a meeting and provide a local meeting place without having to have the Owner add in all locations.

  15. Provide a feature to allow different view settings for side by side calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to allow different view settings for side by side calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016 like setting one Calendar in Week View and setting another Calendar in Month view. Additionally an option could be provided to set view scale buttons (which by the way would be awesome to have a 2 week view) for each calendar when displaying them in side by side mode instead of a global set on the toolbar. This would also allow you to set different time scales for each calendar - i.e. one which can be set to month view and one which…

  16. Option to pin all day events to the day of the event, regardless of timezone in Outlook 2016

    Currently all day events are treated as regular events with a 24 hour duration, starting at midnight in the organizer's timezone. This makes them not be displayed as all-day events in the calendars of participants from different timezones. Please add an option that makes Outlook "pin" all day events to the day of the event, instead of treating them as 24-hour events and spilling over into next/previous days for participants in other timezones.

  17. User control over events

    Administrators often get flight confirmation events added to their calendars for those they book flights for. While they can turn off flight notification events its an all or nothing solution. They may want to accept some events but not others. It would be great to give the end user control before the event gets added to their calendar. This way they can accept only those events they want

  20. when OOF is set, automatically supress reminders for meetings

    I'm going on vacation for 3 weeks, I don't want reminders for meetings while I'm on vacation -- especially since I will be in a different time zone. I can select every meeting (or occurrence) and delete it or set the reminder to none, but new meetings and reminders will appear while I'm out ( and often while I'm asleep)
