  1. Enable an option to print multiple calendars in color all at once

    If google and apple have figured out this solution why is it so hard for Microsoft to do this

  2. show day of week for the appoint in the When field

    When you open a Calendar Invite from my inbox, the day of the week is shown at the top. However this is the day and date that the invite was sent.

    eg: Fri 04/10/2019

    The actual day of the week of the appointment is not shown on the "When" field. It shows just the date.

    eg. When 11 October 2019 Location 5 John Doe St.

    It would be great if the When field showed the day of the week too

    eg. When Fri 11 October 2019 Location 5 John Doe St.

    I have regular commitments that are always on the…

  3. In calendar appointments, include leading and trailing buffer to allow for physically going to a meeting room

    Colleagues might squeeze a 30 minute appointment in between 2 other meetings which are 30 minutes apart. You then have 3 adjacent appointments, which IN THEORY look fine. But IN PRACTICE:
    - Your first meeting might run out for 2 minutes
    - Your last meeting might require you to physically go to a meeting room in another building, taking you 6 minutes.

    Currently I need to create additional 3minute-something appointments to insert some leeway, which I’d usually not take the time to do.
    It would be very useful if Outlook would allow for a "lead time" and "trail time" buffer…

  5. When scheduling a recurring meeting give an option to schedule it on a specific working day, ie working day 3 of every month

    When scheduling a recurring meeting give an option to schedule it on a specific working day, ie working day 3 of every month. The current option only allows you to chose the 3rd of each month but this may fall on a weekend.

  6. Link emails and attachments to calendar entries - so that clicking on the calendar entry brings up the information pertinent to meeting

    Link emails and attachments to specific calendar entries - so that clicking on the calendar entry brings up all the information received that will be pertinent to meeting or event - currently a user has to recall the existence of, and manually search for, everything that might be relevant to the meeting - very inefficient and time consuming.

  9. Allow Editing Meeting Time

    Let's say someone invites me to a meeting that runs from 09:00 to 17:00, but the only part of it that concerns me is from 13:00 to 13:30. I've always been able to edit the meeting time in my local copy, which was then reflected in my calendar and reminders. However as of yesterday's update to Outlook (Version 1905, Build 11629.20214) the meeting time is no longer editable.

    I'd suggest reverting to the previous behaviour, allowing editing of the meeting start/end times.

  10. "Save and New" option when creating new appointments in Calendar

    Having the option of "save and new" when creating an appointment in Calendar so when you have multiple appointments to create you can move from one to the next. Also include the ability to choose the calendar that you want the appointment to be scheduled in from the "new appointment" screen.

  11. Mark Complete and Archive Scheduled Task (remove reminders)

    There should be one button that will mark any task complete and remove reminders throughout all linked Enterprise Applications. If we assign a task in Outlook, or assign a Task in Flow, the user should have a smooth one click option to close the item out, and archive it. If that already exists, but I need to change my settings, please send me a link to the "how to" page.

  12. Option to set the "Initial Hour" to be displayed in Calendar, not only based on Working Hours.

    Today, Calendar starts showing the appointments based on "Working Hours", for instance 8am-5pm. Provide an option we can set a display window like 7am-6pm, so that we can see a bit more before and after the regular hours.

    We usually add reminders for special meetings / events just before the working hours, and Calendar today shows the calendar from the first hour defined in "Working Hour".

  14. Outlook Calendar: Timeline and Time Zone

    Two items I'd really like to see improved in the Outlook calendar:
    1) Timeline - this blue line should update throughout the day, even when the window is not enabled. Particularly for those of us using dual screens, the calendar is viewable and used as reference even if it's not the primary window. This has made me late for meetings.
    2) Time Zone - when someone on the East or West coast sends me an all-day meeting request, how is Outlook not smart enough to figure out the TZ differences and adjust accordingly? At a minimum, offer that option.

  16. Calendar Location Categorization.

    Improve ability to connect with colleagues who work remotely or from various campuses:

    Allow organizations to custom create campus locations that employees can choose as "Working locations" include a generic HOME OFFICE location.

    Also allow us to show meetings as "In Transit" for travel time so that face to face meetings cannot be booked.
