  1. Copy an existing meeting into a new meeting

    Allow the copying of an existing meeting into a new meeting that can be edited for content, attendees, time, etc., and then sent. This dramatically decreases the work effort of scheduling meetings and reduces friction between your users and the software.

  2. Adjust size of "all day events" in day view of Outlook Calnedar

    Is there a way to increase the amount of all day events I can see at the top of the screen for my day view in outlook? Right now I have 6 events and I can only see 3 of them. I should be able to increase the height of the space for "all events" day view feature

  3. Provide an option of follow up meeting in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide an option to schedule a follow-up meeting with one-click in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Also, please add functionality to automatically add an event in my calendar for the X minutes immediate after an accepted meeting.
    This is to allow for better scheduling of a working day and prevent days with back to back meetings and no time for comfort breaks or to attend subsequent meetings promptly.
    Currently I do this manually, which can be very time consuming.

  4. Cancelled Appointment should stay in Outlook Calendar

    Cancelled meetings status should stay in the Outlook Calendar. I would like to see "Cancelled" as a status option in a meeting.

  5. Hide meetings that are marked as private when presenting (when another display is connected)

    It would be really nice if private meetings dissapeard when I'm sharing my screen on another display. Or even better, if the meetings didn't disappear but the subject and other information was visually changed to "Private".

  7. Ability to have Calendar Peek show multiple shared calendar appointments as well as personal calendar appointments

    If calendars (even shared ones) are overlapped, we should be able to see all calendar appointments on the Peek view rather than only appointments for our personal calendar.

  9. recurring resource reservation or Book all available timeslots for a recurring meeting that has resource conflicts instead of just declining

    When a resource is reserved for a recurring meeting, and a single occurrence of the series has a conflict, the whole series is declined by the resource. In such cases all non-conflicting occurrences should be accepted and only the conflicting ones should be declined.
    Or book all available timeslots for a recurring meeting that has resource conflicts instead of just declining the meeting reservation.

  10. Make it possible to remove an attendee from a recurring meeting for future dates only so previous meeting dates remain on the calendar.

    I often need to remove people from the calendar invite because they have moved on to a new position or just don't need to attend that particular meeting any longer, but I need the previous meeting dates to remain on their calendar for historical information and proof for mileage reimbursement etc. in Outlook 2016

    Add voting buttons in meeting request in Outlook 2016. It is very handy to have a voting button so the meeting organizer can receive responses for the votes along with accept/decline!

    Organizer Name shows up in calendar entry following the Meeting Subject and is completely unnecessary to see. So, provide an option to set a default to Hide (or Remove) the Meeting Organizer from the Calendar Day/Week/Month views.

  17. Option to pin all day events to the day of the event, regardless of timezone in Outlook 2016

    Currently all day events are treated as regular events with a 24 hour duration, starting at midnight in the organizer's timezone. This makes them not be displayed as all-day events in the calendars of participants from different timezones. Please add an option that makes Outlook "pin" all day events to the day of the event, instead of treating them as 24-hour events and spilling over into next/previous days for participants in other timezones.

  18. Let me shrink the to-do bar to the width of a calendar month

    In Outlook 2016, the To-Do bar's minimum width is almost 40% wider than the width of a calendar month. This wastes valuable real estate on my screen. Instead, I'd like to be able to re size this pane smaller. I'd expect appointments and other content in the To-Do Pane to adjust accordingly, e.g. to switch from 2-lines-per-appointment to 3-lines-per-appointment.

  20. Provide options to disable new appointment when clicking on Calendar

    In Outlook calendar, please provide the facility to disable the in-line edit feature. When I click on a day I do not always want to create an appointment - for example when copying an appointment I want to select the destination day and paste - rather than having to close the inline edit window that appears.
