  1. minutes

    add 45 minutes option in the list of time slot available in the endtime field when creating an invitation
    lot of people don't need a 30min or 1h meeting but 45 to have some buffer
    the same can be achieved by macro but we can ask all employee to create a macro for it

  2. 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.

  3. More items to be shown in the calendar item creation window

    I would like to customize the calendar item creation window to show more fields other than location, phone number, and capacity.

  4. Multiple Calendar Reminders

    I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

    I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.

  5. 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!

  6. Show an over 24hr event item in the timeline view

    It would be great if you could implement a feature that over 24hr calendar item can be shown in the regular time line when you book it.
    When you create a calendar item which is booked for over 24 hours in OWA/Outlook, the item will be shown in the top of the time line in the calendar view, and it is hard to recognize whether or not there is an event at a glance.

  7. 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.

  8. Mobile APIs of Outlook.com accounts should be exposed for third party calendar apps

    Mobile APIs of Outlook.com accounts not exposed for third party calendar apps. This prevents those apps from retaining the invitation mails after acceptance of invites from inside the calendar apps.
    This is not desirable.
    Retention of invitation mails is required as evidence for future.
    Microsoft must expose mobile APIs for outlook/ exchange accounts to be used by third party calendar apps to enable them retain the invitation mails after acceptance of invites inside the calendar apps..

  9. 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.

  10. Send Calendar Invites from Linked Personalized Domain

    Ability to send calendar invitations from “personalized domain” email linked to Outlook account. It’s unusual that I can send and receive emails and even login from a personalized domain but I can’t select that domain to send my calendar invites. Super confusing for people who get emails from one email and calendar invites from another. This is a pretty basic feature and it’s unbelievable it’s not in the offering.

  11. Only default calendar is checked

    Sometimes when I load my calendar view, it switches to having only the default calendar checked. I have four other calendars linked/imported, and it's annoying to have to check them again every time.

  13. Calendar reminder does not work

    Your calendar, in theory improved, does not send remind email. This is very unfortunate. It was working perfectly well, and suddenly I missed few things (to call doctor for my chirurgical intervention set up date for example) because I blindly believe for that reminder. Will make adjustments quickly?

  14. Turn off reminders by default or use previous setting in calendar

    In the calendar beta reminders are on by default now, they didn't used to be.
    Please add the option to either turn off the reminders by default so I don't have to turn it off everytime, or have it so it saves your previous reminder setting from the last event added.

    Hate this about the calendar beta!

  15. HEX Codes for Calendars and Categoriy Colors

    Allow for custom colors of categories and calendars by allowing users to create colors based on HEX Codes (google calendar does this already so I'd love for you to blast them out of the competition)

  17. Beta calendar still doesn't have the functionality of Classic... Thread says this is fixed but it's not...

    Thread says Beta calendar is fixed to have reminders, but it still doesn't allow the email reminder. Still missing important functionality of Classic calendar.

  18. Description in Calendar Event Disappears When Going Back to Edit It

    After creating a Calendar Event with a Description, if you go back to edit that event the Description is missing. The Description shows up when you click on the event in the Calendar to see details. But if you click Edit and then More Options to edit the Calendar Event in full, the description is blank.

    This only happens through the web portal on a internet browser. I have tried MS Edge and Google Chrome desktop browsers. Does not happen on the Android App or Windows 10 Mail App.

  19. Missing Calendar Link

    It seems that when I click on the App selector icon (top left) I am only presented with the Office apps.

    I have to click the 'All Apps' link to be able to get to my calendar. Seems a backward step. I used to get straight to it from the app list.
