  1. It would be great to have 'No Show' when someone doesn't show up for an appointment. Thank you.

    I have people who do not contact me they cannot keep the appointment. It would be nice to have 'No Show' as an option for my record keeping. Thanks very much.

  2. Meeting scheduler for meetings between different companies

    At this time it's horrible to plan a meeting with different people from 2 or more companies. Het happens that you have to reschedule 2 or 3 times.

    Suggestion: make something like a Doolde where invited people can put there availability.

    The sender of the request can select a range of time, for example 3 days.
    the invited people got the invitation and send his/here available time back. (Outlook can give automatically the available time. user can modify before sending)
    When all invited people has react. the meeting proposer can select te final meeting slot.

  3. Set the alarm set by the meeting organizer precedence in meeting request

    We don’t want attendees to change the alarm set by the organizer when creating a meeting request.
    We would like to have a setting that the alarm set by the organizer can be honored on the attendees’ calendar or that gives the admin message something like “Organizer’s alarm setting will be honored.”

  5. Don't send alarm sound choice with an invitation

    I set a custom alarm sound for meetings as opposed to other reminders. But if I'm the meeting organizer, my choice of sound gets sent to others. There is no reason to do this (not that there's anything wrong with my sound, just that others may have their own preferred sound, so it's an etiquette issue).

    Change Outlook to not send the organizer's sound choice with meeting invitations and updates.

  7. Publish a Team's availability

    In Outlook, you can view a teams calendar in one view, but we want something that can be published to MS Teams or a webpage, that shows everyone's availability, travel, etc.

  10. Separate calendar tab like Focused & Other

    Like you have the focused and Other Tabs, we should have one for Calendar to show any missed out calendar invites and responses to them.

  11. Create a contact summary tool in calendar

    Create a function in calendar so that a group manager can develop a summary of client engagements by week, month and year, by entering the client name as a search term. If I wanted to see how many times my staff met with Acme Bowling Balls (ex), I would enter Acme Bowling Balls in the search term and it would produce a report fro how many time we met with them.

    Perhaps a group report for all clients , listed by client, could also be generated. This would provide a summery for all clients represented in that calendar.

    These are…

  13. Reserve slots of my time for certain users or team members.

    When your peers work across very different time zones, such as between the US and India, we often want to reserve common overlapping time slots for communication/meetings with our geographically dispersed team members.

    We try to reserve "open" time, as tentative standing meetings (usually the project manager), but then if you want to create a meeting with a subset of team members, you have no way to know if they are actually free due to the standing meeting that has been allocated.

    If we free the time slot, then we get invites from co-located peers, which we then have to…

  14. Activity Tracker

    Add the ability to record activities throughout the day that are not scheduled.
    This could be through a screen pop every 30 mins (What have you been doing), or a button in the email ribbon to add time for this activity.
    Looking at MyAnalytics it shows 100% Focus time because I avoid meetings like the plague but it would be great to easily record where I do spend my time which is mostly reacting to email requests.

  15. Forward skype meeting

    Status of accepted, rejected, tentative not available to the person who has forwarded skype meeting to other persons. Only originator can see list of all participants. At least option to view status to person who has forwarded.

    i.e, A is originator, B has forwarded to C, B cant see status of C but A can see.

  16. Car-Sharing System with calendar !

    When I create a new calendar element, I can (optional) indicate

    1- Where I am
    2- Where I want to go
    3- When

    Based on those information Outlook will let me know, within the same group, if some people have a similar itinerary at a similar time and will give me the credential of this person to organize car-sharing.

    It can save money for the company and help reduce pollution.

  18. Recurring meeting in New items drop down

    Finding the recurrence option is not easy, if you have haven't already seen someone doing it. Finding it is top right corner is not intuitive while setting up the meeting. It should be near the time and date that we set for meeting.
    It could be a suggestion when the start date and end date of the meeting is on separate dates.
    That option can also exist as a separate option in the drop down menu of the New Items button.

    Hope this input helps.

  20. Only allow users to accept or propose new time

    Some meetings we send users attendance is required e.g. for an Audit. Whilst users can currently accept, decline or propose new time, we want to restrict them to only accepting or proposing a new time, so that they can still say they are unavailable but not to decline the meeting outright.
