  1. Recurring Meeting series ending alert

    It would be really helpful to get an alert when the last meeting of a series (recurring meeting) is approaching or about to start. I have many meetings that I set for a year that can end mid-year and not realize they've ended so I can either continue them or start a new series/recurrence meeting. I support 12 calendars for 12 executives and it would be a great tool to have so I can keep such meetings scheduled or at least alert the meeting owner to see if it should be continued.

  2. Add BCC, CC as well as FYI field to meeting requests in Outlook 2016 and enhance the functionality by including it in Teams Meeting.

    I would like the option to send meetings requests with BCC, CC so all information about all invitees is not shared with everyone that is invited

    Also, Outlook calendar entries need BCC, CC – without showing these and need to extend them to Skype as well as Microsoft Teams Meetings.

  3. Enable an option to re-accept declined meetings that are part of a series.

    Add an option to be able to accept individual meetings which are part of a larger series after the individual meeting has been previously declined. It is possible to find a deleted invite for an individual meeting and re-accept it, but there seems to be no way to re-accept a declined meeting which is part of a series.

  4. Improve week view in calendar

    Hello, in Outlook Calendar the view has unfortunately deteriorated. The current time used to be shown with a narrow strip in the current day, as it is currently still present in Teams-Calendar.

    In Outlook the stripe has been replaced by a dot with a line to the past days. However, this is not a very clear view, especially on a Monday.

    A personal setting would be desirable in my opinion !

  5. Contact ONLY Individuals who have not replied to a meeting request

    You should be able to (under tracking) easily email or reach out to those who have not responded to an outlook invite to a meeting request. The only way I see it can be done now, is to hand extract those individuals and resend a new meeting request.

  6. Show all meeting participants in Outlook Calendar when hovering over the meeting

    Show all meeting participants in Outlook Calendar when hovering over the meeting. When you are the person inviting others to a meeting and you have a bunch of the same meetings, you don't know who you are meeting with at a given time slot unless you click on more buttons. This information should be available when hovering over the meeting rather than clicking all over the place to remember who you are meeting with. Please consider this improvement. It would make life so much easier. If it can show whether the participants have accepted or not, that would also be…

  8. Add calendar status to indicate immovable vs. moveable meetings/appointments

    For many people there are two types of meetings/appointments that both show as busy today:


    1. Items that can easily be moved as-needed (e.g. some 1:1s. meetings with a small number of attendees within the same team, time blocked for a specific activity that can be done at another time, etc...) A tentative status typically doesn't for these items since the time really is for a committed appointment/meeting, it's just that it's moveable if needed.


    2. Meetings that are not easily moved (e.g. a meeting with a skip-level manager or key customer, a meeting with a lot of people that are difficult…

  9. Alerts for upcoming meetings automatically dismiss once you join

    I love being alerted 15 minutes before a meeting begins and being able to snooze until 5 minutes before it starts.
    However, the reminder window stays open even after I join the meeting I was reminded about, and it's a little annoying. If the window could be aware that I've joined the meeting it's reminding me of and close automatically, that would be very helpful.

  10. Outlook New Meeting Location - Easy autocomplete previous Geolocation used

    Previous Office updates allow users to be able to select the new meeting location's history, sort of like an autocomplete feature where in users can use the up-and-down keys on their keyboard to select the previously used location for their past meeting when creating a new event in Outlook calendar. Since organization don't user Resource mailbox (Rooms), we relay on the Geolocation search. Now that users are in Office 365 Apps for Business version 2006 - with Windows 10 version 2004 build, this feature is no longer available.

  11. Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    Provide option to have meeting reminder alert on a mobile device via text (phone number)

    With the Covid-19 crisis and working from home/away from the office it would be useful to have an option to send meeting reminders as an Alert on your device or provide a fwd email so it will link with your phone and remind of a meeting. Working at home I am multi-tasking even more so than at the office and when I step away from my laptop sometimes I miss reminders or get taken away from an upcoming meeting.

    I also don't have a work…

  12. Extend the time bar indicator over the current day in Outlook365 calendar view

    The time bar indicator in the calendar view should extend over the current day - not only over the past days.
    Currently this leads to the first weekday having almost no visible time bar indicator (just half a circle) and for other days the time bar indicator extends only over past days.

    This is confusing and constantly makes one look at appointments from the past day instead the current one.

  14. Change ownership of calendar event in Outlook 2016

    Sometimes the owner of a meeting (or, more often, meeting series) is on vacation or changes jobs; it would be nice if they could assign ownership of an instance (for vacation) or the full series (for job changes) to someone else. Also provide an option to create a meeting on someone's behalf without being included in the meeting.

  15. "Work Time" Location

    Work Time allows me to share what my core working hours are, as we work in more dynamic ways, I'd like to share location (in office, remote, custom) to help people know where to schedule meetings with me.

  16. Multiple organisers for one Outlook appointment

    With several organisers for an Outlook appointment, it would be possible to make appointment adjustments if one is not available. Adjusting the calendar description would also be more useful for collaboration.

    Custom absolute times: 8pm the evening before the meeting.
