  1. Allow multiple months in to to-do bar like in outlook 2010

    Allow multiple months in the to-do bar like in Outlook 2010. Restricting it to a single month defeats the purpose of having it there.

  5. 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…

  6. let me block out time and then add appointments within that block

    I want to set aside amounts of time for certain activities and then make appointments within that block. i.e. I want to allow two hours to meet my direct reports and then give them each 20 minutes within that block, but I don't want the block to get half the width of the calendar view column, with the actual appointments and their details squeezed into half the view. I want to add the 'sub-appointments'/'sub-meetings' within the block, almost full width of the column with plenty of detail showing.

  7. How about a new FYI calendar event.

    I would like to notify my team, and certain coworkers, about an upcoming event (out of office), with out a response request or even acceptance. Just want them to know ahead of time I will be out or away from the office. I would like it to show on their calendar so they can see it on the day. Give them THE choice to be notified or not.

  8. Add icon for "Jump to Date" in Calaenders Tab.

    With this step people can change dates and go to dates with minimal efforts. Also this tab includes today's date so people can back to current date with single click only.

  9. Meeting Acceptance Emails

    Differentiate between Meeting Acceptance Email with user comments in the body and acceptance email with no comments

    Please differentiate (may be via subject line) between
    1. when user accepts meeting invite by adding comments and
    2. when user adds no comments in the response.

    This will help user to open those email where comments are included and not miss those. Currently there is really not way to tell than open each response. Having this differentiator will help boost productivity.

  14. Option to display weekends / non-work days in alternate color or even hide them in Outlook 2016

    To be able to designate a different background color for weekend (non-work) days so that's it's much easier to visually differentiate work days from non work days. Or provide an option to hide the weekends or non working days in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Or please allow for shading weekends on month at a glance mode. Also, it would be helpful to have calendar months highlighted in contrasting color so that months are easily distinguishable.

  18. 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…

  20. Provide an option to show agenda item for details in Calendar when hovering over in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    In versions of Outlook before 2016 there was the possibility to hover over an agenda item; this would reveal not only subject line and times but also the text field with further details of the appointment. In Outlook2016 I really miss this!
