  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. '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.

  13. Setting up recurring meetings on a surface hub when the time slot is already blocked for one week.

    In the given scenario:
    When trying to set up a daily meeting on 3 Surface hubs that are in different offices.
    The recurring meeting is set for every day.

    Setting this up works fine for 2 of the surface hub and we receive an email from each surface hubs confirming that the meeting was accepted. However, for the one surface hub, we get the following email reply:

    "Declined All: Daily Meeting"

    "Your meeting request was declined because there are conflicts.

    Time of Conflicting Meeting
    
    Monday, September 11, 2017
    [... and other dates in the same week]"

    The message is basically…

  15. 16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving

    16.0.8625.2121 isn't pikcing up day light saving. I have the screen shots to show it. Windows shows the correct Seattle time, Outlook is an hour behind.

  16. When scheduling a meeting, the "All day event" is being overlapped by the checkbox

    I wish I could attach a snippet here, but when I was creating a event for myself today, i noticed that the "All day event" checkbox is getting overlapped in the UI. Please note i'm also self-hosting Windows (doubt it's related, but possible i suppose).

  17. Provide an option to show Meeting Requests in Inbox Folder View in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    At times it is difficult to see where the meeting requests are coming from just by looking at the pop up on the calendar.

    There should be an easy way to filter calendar items (there was a feature by message type, but that seems not very intuitive and looks to be broken) into the inbox or see an aggregated folder view of all un-responded calendar requests. Triage from the calendar doesn't seem to delete the original mail item in the inbox and is harder to see all incoming from the default weekly view. The triage is much easier from a…

  19. Outlook events

    While there are meetings/appointments/etc, it would be nice to have a feature for Events such as team parties and outings outside of the regular hours. Be able to link restaurants and similar abilities.
