  1. appointment template for description

    Whenever I create a new appointment in my calender, I would like to have a drop down menu where my custom templates for appoints can be selected. This should work like choosing a signature in mail.

    Benefit: I have many meetings which have agendas in the appointment. My template would be like:

    "Dear all,

    this is the agenda for today's meeting
    - (to be filled)
    -

    Regards
    T.

  2. Add ability to select any calendar for new meetings and appointments, like the phone app (Windows Phone App)

    In the Windows Phone App, now extinct, the user could select a New Meeting or New Appt, then choose which calendar to which it would apply. However, in the desktop version, a user must go to the desired calendar first and then click for a new meeting/appointments.

    For people who use many multiple calendars, which I believe is every Outlook user, we don't look at which calendar in the stack is selected before we choose to add an event. Thus, we end up adding an event to the wrong calendar and requiring us to re-enter it. The same…

  3. Converting Meeting to Appointment

    Outlook Calendar doesn’t allow users to turn a Meeting to an Appointment. Workaround is to manually create a new appointment with the same details as the Meeting which is time-consuming. Please fix by adding an option to enable users to convert a Meeting into an Appointment. Thanks.

  6. Retract Appointments

    Ability to retract appointments when they have been canceled or rescheduled. Appointments no longer valid clog up the works when doing a busy search because they are not removed from the calendar.

  7. Cancel appointment

    The option to cancel an appointment (not meeting). And once it has been cancelled, be able to make a note, like "rescheduled for ____", and still be able to see that it was on the calendar and what happened to it. And then another good option would be to be able to show "All Appointments" or "Only Active Appointment" or "Only Cancelled Appointments", etc.

  9. Allow to assign tasks within an appointment while creation.

    Outlook Appointment add task flag to appointment text similar to OneNote.

    To assign tasks within an appointment during creation, it would be very helpful to have a task flag function similar to OneNote.

    Appointments often include agendas, it would be nice to have tasks per agenda item assigned.

    For example, I am writing my appointment details in a series of bullets, then I want to flag each bullet with a custom task. The task is synched to the outlook appointment link and text similar to how Task is linked to OneNote text. This would provide a full workflow.

  12. Ability to show the client appointment.

    It would be nice to be able to mark a past appointment as being missed by a client and keep it in the agenda but being kinda crossed or something so we can track the number of appointment where clients don't show off.

  19. Closing Calendar Appointment with no changes

    Almost every time I close a calendar appointment, Outlook asks if I want to save my changes. There were no changes made to the appointment. How about Outlook doesn't ask to save changes when there were NO CHANGES made by the end user. This has been going on for YEARS. Please fix it.

  20. Hide Private Appointments When Sharing Screen

    I would appreciate it if one could toggle a mode in Outlook Calendar whether or not to show private appointements.
    When I share my screen (Skype, MS Teams, projector, ...) and have the calendar open I don't want others to see private appointements (because they are private and could contain confidential information).

    So I would expect to have a toggle switch to enter this mode where private appointements are shown as 'Private Appointement' and not with their title. I also would like that Outlook automatically enters this mode when the screen is shared in an online meeting. Detect projectors may…
