Provide an option for users to select account for appointments in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Currently, when opening a new appointment, Outlook will pick the account of the folder that the user is currently in. However, that leads to mistakes at times creating the appointment in the wrong calendar. In order to change, the appointment draft must be discarded and a new one opened. It would be much better to allow to just change the account, the way Outlook allows to change the From account in an email message.

The ability to select an account when making a new appointment exists in the Android Outlook version. Needs to be on the desktop as well.

Agree! This same request should be merged with https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/322590-outlook-2016-for-windows/suggestions/33848290-add-ability-to-select-any-calendar-for-new-meeting#comments

I was going to ask exactly the same question but then I saw yours. You have my vote! I badly need this feature. Would be particularly useful when double-clicking a .ics file!

This would be great. simply just one calendar with different colors
Agree this should be an option. Alternatively, you can simply complete the appointment in the wrong calendar, then drag it to the correct calendar, but it should definitely be an option when creating the appointment.
