  1. Automatic Meeting Buffer

    With remote work being the new norm for businesses, schools, etc most people are struggling to balance back to back (to back) meetings. I often am scheduled back to back from 8 AM to 6 PM, without a break to use the bathroom. I’m suggesting that Outlook implement an automatic 5 to 10 minute buffer when scheduling meetings. This could be easily implemented by changing the default meeting from 30 to 25 minutes and beginning 5 minutes past the hour/half-hour, and from 60 to 50 minutes and beginning at 10 minutes past the hour/half-hour.

  2. abbreviate times

    Make it so that you can abbreviate whole-hour times. For example, to specify 6pm, you have to type 6:00pm. On other sites, you can just say 6pm and it will be correctly set.

  4. Quarterly recurrences for appointments, meetings, and/or tasks

    Outlook recurrence patterns currently include "Daily", "Weekly", "Monthly", and "Yearly". Can a "Quarterly" recurrence pattern be added? This would save time having to manually insert reminders in the calendar each quarter.

  10. show as Busy but Movable

    Today when I block my agenda for my taks without invinting anybody, I'm seen as busy by everybody which is blocking my agenda for any other meeting possibilities.
    I would like a new Show As category like "adjustable" to show that this slot is easy to move for me.
    Thanks

  12. to have multiple organizers on Outlook meeting.

    I would like to have multiple organizers on Outlook meeting. That would be nice; Especially if the real organizer isn't available to customize the meeting with multiple organizers who can do this.
    (Maybe this has been suggested before)

  16. Change the organiser/admin of existing Outlook appointment series

    This would be helpful in case someone leaves the company or changes his function internally and has reserved certain meetingrooms with an appointment series. Right now the current organiser has to cancel the series and at the same time the other person who takes over needs to send a new invitation. However there are always problems with this method and it's quite time consuming to copy the series manually. Would also be a nice feature to have for general appointments.

  17. Change Calender event owner

    Have the option to change the calendar event owner.

    This can be useful if the owner sets up a meeting series, but is unable to attend one instance and needs to transfer ownership to one of the invitees or another person.

    It would allow the owner to remove that instance from their calendar but have the meeting remain for the other attendees.
