  2. Do Not Disturb option for calendar events

    For Outlook, Teams (in fact every application with a calendar including Exchange Online) - in addition to Free/Busy/OutofOffice - add an option for Do Not Disturb which the applications then use to silence notifications during that meeting.

    Very useful for meetings where you are presenting, or need complete attention etc.

  3. 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

  5. Capacity planning

    In Outlook you can create resource agenda to book them. Please make sure that you also can create an agenda in which you can handle the capacity planning. In these times we are searching for a way for co-workers to reserve a desk in our building. Now we have to create a resource for each desk. Would be nice if we can accommodate this with a other type of agenda.

  6. Add bcc field to calendar /meeting invitations

    Due to privacy and GDPR we would like to be able to send meeting invitations but not share everyone's email addresses. I admit it sounds odd - but some stakeholders/service users use personal email addresses rather than business accounts and it's currently cumbersome sending everyone of those separate invitations.

  8. 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.

  9. Group Calendar (formerly Family calendar) Not Showing On Agenda Email

    Outlook.com used to have this nice Family calendar that automatically shared with members of the family. Someone decided it was a great idea to turn it into a separate Group calendar. I used to get the Agenda email for my calendars, but it doesn't include Group calendar entries. Agenda email has become kind of worthless if it doesn't include important entries to my day. Someone needs to rethink how this has been implemented.

  10. Change all birthday reminders at once and get reminder earlier

    I want to be able to control when I want to receive a notification for the birthdays of my contacts. Like, just a button to change the notification for ALL birthdays at once. And make it come earlier. I want to receive the notification like 3 days before the actual birthday to be able to walk to the store, buy an birthday card and send it with the mail.

  11. Agenda pane options

    Please allow me to switch "Agenda Pane" on or off in "Settings." I know a lot of people like it but I don't use it and it makes my calendar too narrow. It is especially annoying when it opens just to tell me I don't have anything going on that day. I am smart enough to read my calendar and figure that out.

  12. Add Dice as Event Icon

    Could you please add a dice icon for events in the calendar? As board game evenings gain popularity, I'd like to mark them with a proper icon.

    Thank you,

  14. Split the UK public holidays calendar!

    Split the UK public holidays calendar!

    Scotland has much more public holidays than say England, so it makes more sense to split the UK public holiday calendar up into Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and then Wales.

    We don't all have the same holidays even though we are all the UK

  15. Customizable time slots for recurring meeting series

    If I've exactly the same meeting content and purpose but I want the meeting series to be at different time slots, it would make sense to add a feature making the addition of multiple slots for a meeting possible.

    e.g. I sent out a meeting invite for a meeting every Tuesday and Thursday from 13:00 - 14:00. Now I wish to modify the Tuesday meetings to be held from 14:00 - 15:00. This isn't possible to do within the current user experience. The only option is to modify the earlier meeting invite to exclude Tuesday and send out a "new"…

  17. Automatically remove cancelled meetings

    "Automatically accept meeting requests" and "remove canceled meetings should be separate options". These are two distinct actions and user should have ability to manage process them differently.

  18. Change working hours to accommodate overnights

    I work a lot of evenings and overnights (graveyard shift) I would like to see the ability to have a shift start at 4 PM and span to 8:30 AM of the next morning. Otherwise, the analytics will be of no use to me.

  19. Create a recurrent event on the multiple random dates at once in the Outlook Calendar

    I would like to create a recurrent event to select multiple random dates at once. Because we don’t want the event to recur in regular cycle.
