  3. Exporting appointments from Excel to Outlook Calendar with required attendees.

    Not able to import " required attendees" in appointments from Excel to Outlook Calendar (via a CSV file) Everything works well except required attendees. When I put in attendee's emails they are not loaded into the Outlook Calendar. I want to have attendees listed in each appointmentas well as having outlook send the appointment request to the required attendee, though I am not sure the appointment request is a possibility and would save me time!

  4. Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one

    Provide an option to clone a past meeting as we might need to create meeting which is not a recurring one would be the best option in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Being able to clone a past meeting would be good instead of copying all the details again.

  5. 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.

  7. Reminders offered only on future events

    I use Calendar both to record planned meetings as well as to record my historic activities during the day to be able to invoice clients later. It is rather annoying to get a reminder on historic events immediately after recording such events, but it is quite helpful to have automatic reminders on future events. You should add an option to only offer reminders on new calendar items if start time is later than current time. If start time is in the past do not offer an automatic reminder.

  8. Auto update of existing meetings through Distribution Lists

    be able to invite internal distribution lists to recurring meetings where the distribution list stayed as the invitee, not expanding the members of the list at that point in time but still able to send to the existing list. As
    a result, when the distribution list membership was updated
    new members receive the meeting invite and if a member is removed from the list they would be removed from the meeting.

  9. Multiple tentative meetings

    it is common to receive multiple tentative meeting dates for a single meeting, with one of them only being eventually selected. It would be useful to be able to create a series of linked tentative meetings with a single subjects. Once the actual date is known, selecting this date would remove all the other tentative meetings from the agenda

  10. pin the calendar to the desktop

    Add the option to pin the calendar to the desktop, that would making the calendar much more convenient to use. The current alternative is to use a screenshot of the calendar as the desktop background but have to consistently update it

  12. When deleting recurring appointments, pop up should ask "Are you sure you want to delete this?"

    When I have to delete a single occurrence in a recurring appointment, it would be good to have a pop up that confirms you want to delete. I have accidentally deleted a "series" and had to go back and try to add it back as it was. If a pop up had prompted me, I could say "No" and then delete just the occurrence.

  13. Allow accepting partial time frames of a meeting

    Users should be able to accept only partial time frames of a meeting. If a user has a 30min meeting they have to be at and someone sends an invite for a 1hr meeting at the same time they should be able to accept the 30min they can make. This would let the organizer know they can only attend part and structure the meeting agenda accordingly.

  14. Ability to send invites to new attendees only

    Where I add attendees to a meeting request, I want to send the invite to ONLY them and not resend it to all the attendees previously invited (previous functionality "send update only")

  15. List View for Calendar

    See discussions here:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/outlook-list-view-in-office-2019/62c023a8-3377-4fd6-a609-5db49f31ccd5

    Basically, to repeat, it would be good to create a list view with individual events (even from a series) listed out. Often times, individual events in a series has specific info in each event, so canceling the entire series would lose that info. Having a list view to search, filter, and select events to cancel would be great. As mentioned, using the search feature only returns the entire series, but not individual events.

  16. Provide "Join and Dismiss" button in meeting reminder pane

    As a frequent meeting attendee, I would like the Outlook meeting reminder box to have an option that allows me to Join a meeting and Dismiss the reminder all in one action. Today, I have to take two separate actions (clicking on two separate buttons in the reminder pop-up).
    This would increase user efficiency on a high-frequency task across all users.

  17. Create an appointment on multiple calendars at one time (personal & shared calendars)

    When creating a new appointment, I want to be able to add it to multiple calendars at one time. I have shared calendars with different teams. I have to put the same information on multiple calendars (ie: Out of office, work from home, etc.). It would be great to be able to click on new appointment and have the option to add it to additional calendars - other than just the default personal calendar.

  18. Provide ability to "MOVE" recurring Birthday events from Regular Calendar to Birthday Calendar.

    Let us click and slide an event from one calendar to another calendar. For example, I noticed that we have a main calendar, holiday calendar, and a birthday calendar. I was not given the option to add all of the birthdays in a special "birthday calendar." They are all in the main calendar. Let us move them so we don't have to re-create each one.

  20. Option to exclude weekends when creating a multi-week calendar event

    When adding an event that spans over several weeks there should be an option to exclude weekends. So for example when I'm teaching a 3 week class, but not on weekends, I currently have to add it to my calendar as separate events, one week at a time. I want to be able to add a multi-week or even monthly event and have an option to select "exclude weekends.
