  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. On the calendar, in the Daily View, Work Week View, and Week View there is a blue horizontal line to indicate the current time. I'd like to

    On the calendar, in the Daily View, Work Week View, and Week View there is a blue horizontal line to indicate the current time. In the two weekly views, I'd like to suggest that the line be darker in the middle when the line crosses the current day of the week. This would help emphasize the current day of the week and make finding 'now' much easier.

  7. 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

  9. 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.

  10. Lunch time block

    Outlook Calendar allows you to set start and End hours for a work schedule. It would be helpful if I could also block off my lunchtime. Not everyone takes lunch at the same time or for the same duration. This would be immensely helpful when trying to schedule meetings.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. maximum number of acceptable participants for meetings

    Meetings for coleagues vis department distribution lists may end up at 50 people, but only the first 10 may be allowed to come (e.g. frequent trainings).

    It would be good to have this organized within the calender management and for everyone visible. Solutions outside are always double work.

    Thanks for listening/voting!
