  1. Improve calendar views to support a large (20+) number of appointments on each date

    Having to manage several 30+ calendars associated each to a different resource, it's impossible have a full overview of the existing appointments. Other calendar services provide a variable dimension of the single day based on the number of appointments existing on a specific date

  2. Automatically update a room name in users’ calendar when the room name is changed

    It would be great if administrators can update the room name in users’ calendar at once or the change will be automatically reflected in users’ calendar when the room had already added in a calendar item.
    When you change the room name, the new name will not be reflected automatically in users’ calendar. So they currently need to re-add their calendar each time.

  3. Create a page to show the schedule of all meeting rooms (appointment status) in a list.

    It would be great if we could put URL links on the intra portal site so that the schedule of all meeting rooms is shown in the destination page.

  7. Add Method Of Participation for Meetings

    Have Outlook give the option when Accepting a meeting, if they will be attending in person. I am always needing to know how much catering to order, how big of a room is needed, etc. If when you get the meeting invite you could choose "Accept", then "Attending In Person" , that would be incredibly helpful!

  8. Being able to sync my iCloud calendars with Outlook.com

    I would like to be able to sync my iCloud calendars with Outlook.com

    I'm having an issue with syncing my iCloud calendars to work with my various versions of outlook. So far, I can see and edit my iCloud calendars in my Outlook app for iPhone, Outlook app for iPad, and for my Windows 10 Outlook. The only place i'm having issues is Outlook.com. While it does show a drop down that says 'iCloud' where my calendars SHOULD be, there's nothing there.

    After some research, I tried the subscribe to calendar option. In the 'Add Calendar' section, it does have…

  9. Add a new access to do certain things in the mailbox calendar

    I would like you to add a new access for users to do all the certain actions below in the mailbox calendar:
    add own schedule in the mailbox calendar directly, block double booking, modify exclusive event that he/she created, delete the event that he/she created.
    Or it would be great to have a method to set the above actions for users.

  11. Automatically decline invites without automatically accepting invites.

    These should be separate options, automatically declining conflicting meetings shouldn't be dependent on automatically accepting all meetings. Especially when you won't receive the notice of the meeting that was automatically accepted as a normal item in your inbox. It leads to surprise meetings popping up with only the notification time set in the meeting invite.

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/automatically-decline-invites-without/337a2300-778f-4bc9-848c-19c5e12be3fe is an example of my request

  12. Outlook Calendar new reminder settings (ex: set as 5 minutes) are always default to 15 Minute for external meetings and delegate

    functional changes - Outlook Calendar new reminder settings (ex: set as 5 minutes) are always default to 15 Minutes. Please see below test scenarios.

    1) User C is external and sends an invitation to User A in Office 365. User A receives the invitation in calendar with 15 mins as reminder [default Exchange] disregarding user A default reminder, which is not correct.

    2- User B is a delegate to User A calendar :
    2-1 User B creates a meeting in User A calendar >>> Invitations will be received with the default reminder of User B (Organizer) disregarding user A reminder,…

  13. Display the calendar on the right side of main screen, along with my emails and folders displayed

    I would like the main Outlook screen to display the calendar on the right side of main screen and folders on the left side with my email subject lines in the middle. The same as it is for my work email. The main screen would have all the options showing at the same time for my choosing.

  14. Calendar

    Adjust calendar options as needed by day. For example, I work Monday Tuesday and Friday from 12-8 but Wed and Thursday 8-8, but outlook only allows the same hours every day

  15. Want to create a meeting schedule on the sub calendar when creating it from the Meeting with All option in Outlook client

    When viewing own calendar and another users’ calendar at the same time, if you send a meeting invitation by selecting the Meeting with All option, the item would be generated on the default calendar.
    I want to add the new meeting item on the sub calendar, not my calendar.

  16. no Calendar scroll bar

    I suggest making it possible to scroll in the month view. There's no scroll bar when I go directly from "Office" to "Calendar" the way I'm accustomed to when I go directly from "Outlook" to "Calendar."

  17. We need the ability for adding attachments to Outlook Calendar events on iPhone.

    We work from our mobile devices thus we do not have access to a computer. At present it is impossible for adding documents to a Calendar event. When added via a computer we can see them on our mobile devices, but we cannot add attachments via mobile. Using Apple calendar and Google calendar we can attach files on mobile devices. Thus Outlook via mobile is extremely frustrating.

  18. Horizontal line representing current time often blocked

    The horizontal line that represents current time in the Calendar often gets blocked by an event, which makes it way less useful.
    Please consider bring that line to the front and maybe make it denser

    Thanks.

  19. Reminders in Notification List

    After the September 2019 interface change, Reminders no longer show in the Notifications list, only "likes". Please have them display in the Notifications list.

    I had added a secondary calendar to hold all my daily and weekly reminders, so that my main calendar view would not be cluttered. But, unless I display the secondary calendar, I receive no notification at all from this secondary calendar. Prior to the update, the notifications appeared in the Notification List, and I did not have to display the secondary calendar.

  20. Pin Calendar to Taskbar

    I have outlook.com pinned to my taskbar. I'd also like my outlook.com calendar pinned to my taskbar, but this does not appear to be possible.
