  2. Business Days for Calendar Reminders in Outlook 2016

    Since one can type any number of hours/days/weeks/months in for a reminder, all that's needed is the option for "business day," so that someone could have a reminder set for 1 (example) business day in advance--if the event is on a Friday, the reminder triggers Thursday; if the event is a Monday, the reminder triggers Friday instead of Sunday, as with 1 "regular" day

  7. Add more calendar meeting availability options under show as

    Currently, appointments show as free, tentative, busy, working elsewhere, work from home, or out of office. My company has a lot of virtual workers but we do come to the office from time to time. Sometimes, we want to meet face to face so it would be great if the out of office status could be subdivided into Out of Office - Free and Out of Office- Busy. This would allow me to set out of office as a way to indicate I will not be in the office but can make virtual meetings.

  8. Make Scrolling more fluent in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for Touch enabled devices.

    Some HTML-formatted e-mails result in no scrollbar in preview pane. Cannot scroll down to see the rest of the document. Must open message in its own window where there is a scrollbar; however, even then, the preview pane is split into a fixed-size area showing the HTML-formatted message followed by another panel showing the HTML rendered message (but with external resources blocked by default). Make scrolling in the calendar view more fluent for touch enabled devices as well as in Outlook 2016.

    Also allow mailbox to scroll smoothly with mouse wheel instead of snapping the view to lock with the…

  11. Allow Meeting Cancellation by Attendee(s) in Outlook 2016

    Allow meeting cancellation by someone other than the organizer. For situations where the organizer is not available or is not the primary facilitator. Solution could look like this: Permit the assignment of an "alternate(s)" with cancellation privileges. This is not intended to allow cancellation of an entire meeting series.

  13. Ability to sync several calendars into my Outlook 2016 (Office 365) Calendar

    I would really love to be able to sync my personal calendar (yahoo) as well as a CRM system calendar (Redtail) to my Outlook 2016 Calendar - having to keep/update 3 separate calendars straight is a huge challenge.

  14. Meeting Organizer should have an option to receive a notification regarding the attendees for the meeting invite in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option in Microsoft Outlook 2016 to send a notification to the meeting organizer for updated attendees list and also who hasn't responded to the meeting invite. This should be an opt-in setting and also allow the organizer to set the specific time-frame for the notice(i.e. 2 hours before the meeting or 1 day). Another opt-in setting could be to send a reminder email to the invitee who hasn't responded also at a certain time-frame.

    Also in a scenario where there are large number of appointment invitees, it would be beneficial for an organizer to use a response tracker without getting…

  16. Have both a Skype meeting and conference room for meeting invites

    When scheduling meetings there are occasions where we have both a conference room for local attendees and a Skype Meeting invite for remote attendees. It would be useful to be able to add both and have those show correctly in the body and location of the meeting invite along with the Date, Time and location that stands out.

    Alternatively, when meeting rooms are not available currently, I would love a feature where as a user I can specify a set of rooms and provide meeting date and time and in background, Outlook can watch these rooms and book on my…
