  3. Having real trouble with yearly repeats...

    There is a problem with entering yearly repeated events...

    Yearly repeated by the Last Monday of the Month
    or
    Yearly repeated by the first Monday of the Month

    These are not consistently recognised and over the years show on another day.

    The problem seem to be if you click recurrence and then change *** to the last or first day. When you save it, it reverts back to the 28th of the Month or the 3rd of the Month - Not good.

    Please work to get this resolved - thank you.

  4. Provide an option to protect or lock calendar items to avoid conflicting events in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to protect or lock calendar items to avoid conflicting events in Microsoft Outlook 2016. It would be nice to be able to "protect" a meeting or calendar appointment in a way that prevents people from being able to schedule a conflicting meeting.

  8. When you create any event in outlook 2016 then there should be a place which summarize their details

    When you're the creator of an event/meeting, have a place where these are summarized (so you can see who has replied) and then you wouldn't have to scroll to find the date of the event in order to see replies/send out updates

  9. Cancel appointment

    The option to cancel an appointment (not meeting). And once it has been cancelled, be able to make a note, like "rescheduled for ____", and still be able to see that it was on the calendar and what happened to it. And then another good option would be to be able to show "All Appointments" or "Only Active Appointment" or "Only Cancelled Appointments", etc.

  10. Display quick select calendar by clicking written date

    When viewing the Calendar, clicking on the written Date should display the folder pane (if hidden) or just a date selector.
    This will allow you to view another days calendar quickly, especially if you have the folder pane hidden to maximize the usable space

  11. Dismiss meeting reminder warning

    Currently when a meeting scheduled by someone else who sets a reminder for 1 day before, when clicking "dismiss all" it is entirely too easy to accidentally dismiss a reminder for a meeting that is further into the future.

    An option should exist to "Warn before dismissing an appointment that is more than [number] [units of time] in the future."

    If [number] is 4 and [units of time] is hours and you try to dismiss a meeting that is 4 hours and 1 second into the future outlook should warn you. For example, "One or more future meetings are beyond…

  12. Please allow multiple Outlook items to be set up at once with recurrences availables, like any calendar item.

    It is frustrating and poor time management to have to set up only one Out of Office notification at a time in Outlook. Would like to see enhancement to Outlook Out of Office Assistant to enable multiple items to be set up concurrently (eg. set up Out of Office for all my holidays for next 12 months) and also enable recurrence (eg. set Out of Office for every Monday as I work a 4 day week) with same flexibility in setting recurrences as for setting up any other calendar item.

  13. Birthday Calendar is not working properly.

    This problem appears to be on the server side. When I enable the Birthday calendar, it remains empty. Only the Skype birthdays show up.

    I turned it off once just to reset and eliminate duplicate contacts. Now they won't come back.

    Also, if Birthday calendar is enabled, Contact birthdays should only be added or transferred to the Birthday calendar.

  15. Provide ability to define Appointment keywords and include as a search option

    With many different types of appointments (Committees, sub-committees, work related, personal, etc) I find the color categories make my calendar view messy and distracting. It's also confusing when there's more than 1 category assigned - only 1 color displays on my calendar's week view. I think being able to assign keywords to calendar appointments and being able either click a keywords folder or search to find all related keyword appointments would be extremely helpful. The user would need to be able to assign keywords defined just in their Outlook view including being able to add keyword(s) to meetings they have…

  18. Notification in case of duplicate event

    When attempting to add a duplicate event to my calendar, I should get a notification saying "this event seems like a duplicate - are you sure you want to add it?" This notification should come up when I begin editing an event description, not when I hit the Save button.

  19. Autolookup feature bug in v1710 Build 8625.2127

    Restore functionality to Autlookup feature.

    I perform the following:

    -Navigate to Calendar in Outlook
    -Click New Meeting button
    -Begin typing “Display name” for resource/room
    -Autlookup dialog box appears below to field
    -Click the resource I want in autlookup field
    -However, “Location” field does not autopopulate

    (Previous to version v1710 Build 8625.2127, this functionality worked)

    If I hit the “To…” button and add the contact that way it will auto-populate the “Location” field. I’d imagine this bug appeared when the autolookup field appearance was changed in this version.

  20. 'Hold place or freeze' option on Calendar when flipping between email and calendar

    When looking at a future date in the calendar, I should be able to 'hold' or 'freeze' where I am so that when I go to email and back, it remembers where I was. There can also be an 'unfreeze' option to take me straight back to the current week.
