  1. Dragging a meeting should dynamically show free/busy info for attendees

    As I set a meeting around, there should be a visual indicator of whether the attendees are free or busy. This saves me from opening the item, going to the scheduling assistant and scrolling around to see the same info - instead I can do my change via direct manipulation and feedback in calendar.

  3. Add created by and last modified by to Calendar details view or see a log of who created an appointment, who moved it,edited it and when

    We work in a small business with Exchange Services running. When someone creates an event in someone else's calendar, you get to see who made the last changes in detail view. However, it would be nice to see who originally created the event, not only see who made the last change.

    OR SEE A LOG OF WHO CREATED AN APPOINTMENT, WHO MOVED IT, EDITED IT, ETC. AND WHEN

  4. Autocomplete for attendees in outlook appointment

    When entering an attendee in the scheduling assistant for an oulook appointment, display history of previously entered attendees so they can be selected without having to type it in again...similar to autocomplete in a browser. eg, if entering an email address, display history of previously entered email addresses as you are typing. also display matching outlook contacts for selection/autocomplete as typing.

  7. Ability to set default calendar status

    New calendar items always default to Busy and there seems no way to change that. I prefer they are Available instead. Please add the ability to set a default status in the Options.

  8. Make it possible to reschedule a series without affecting one-off changes

    Currently if you make changes to an occurrence of a meeting series and then change the original series, all of the one-off changes are lost. The one-off changes were clearly made for a reason and Outlook should be able to change future occurrences that match the original without affecting one-off changes.

  9. Notification to find common meeting time in Outlook 2016

    It would be awesome if Outlook could detect, based on the content of emails, that a group of people would like to meet (this sounds like a fairly straightforward ML training problem). It could then give a popup notification that would direct the user to a workflow:


    1. Display the weekly calendars of all people CC'd on the email stacked one above the other. Bonus points if the user can add/remove folks from the meeting. Allow me to click to following weeks if necessary.


    2. Suggest times (via highlighting) that (nearly) everyone is free. Bonus points if we can rearrange attendees such…

  10. Option to print Overlay Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Option to print Overlay Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016 would be beneficial. Particularly like to have the ability to overlay calendars arbitrarily whether on the left, right, or any other view configuration.

  12. Provide a feature to share meeting attendee requirements in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Additional areas for communicating the need of each person to attend the meeting such as 'required,' 'optional' or 'FYI' would allow for much clearer communication when sending out invites.

  13. Make the calendar even more usable for business travelers in Outlook 2016

    For business or other travelers it would be great if the calendar made it easier to schedule meetings and review upcoming trips.
    For example:
    Have many trips to different time zones - usually mark an upcoming trip as all day request with the city or country in the appointment location. Outlook should recognize that and set the time zone correctly for that time period and adjust the working time to the new location.That way when we plan meetings in that time zone by looking at their local time.

  16. SharePoint Calendar Custom Fields

  18. Improve Updating/adding public holidays

    This functionality has been dire for the last 20 years at least -- I can only presume that nothing has been done about it (and there are not many votes about it) because we suffer the process once every few years. But it badly needs attention!
    Every few years Outlook runs out of the last public holiday file that you loaded, and you have to add another one. The approved method is to delete the old "holiday" category and then use the "add holidays" function. Otherwise you get duplicates. But not only is this tedious, but if you do it…

  19. Allow a feature of Simple Shared Calendar in Office 365 Business Essentials Exchange for All Users to see and Edit

    Allow a feature of Simple Shared Calendar in Office 365 Business Essentials Exchange for All Users to see and edit without navigating to different locations or folders and provide simple check box to toggle inclusion or exclusion in view as current public folder approaches are limited, cumbersome and just don't work well.

  20. Create an option to prevent outlook from automatically creating calendar entries from scanned emails, such as package deliveries

    Create an option to prevent outlook from automatically creating calendar entries from scanned emails, such as package deliveries from eBay or Amazon.

    The notification takes over most of the preview screen. Is that really necessary?
    That shouldn't be more than one line.
    Not many people need all this calendar graffiti.
