  4. Display only open work hours on Outlook Calendar under Scheduling Assistant

    Under the Scheduling Assistant when trying to schedule a meeting would like to be able to click on “options” and view “available to schedule meeting for day” and “available to schedule for work week view” this would allow you to choose the attendee and not have to look at what they already have blocked off on their calendar and instead focus on only the times that are still available on their calendar.

  5. calendar body

    Outlook calendar display,
    Please display the Body contents from the beginning.
    I have 8 appointments a day. Clicking one by one is a hassle.
    It's the same with hovering.
    One schedule per day. Click to see the Body content, even though there are a lot of whitespace.
    It's inconvenient.

  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. 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

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. export calendar to iCloud

    I want to export my Outlook calendar to iCloud. I can't find a way other than an OLM file, but that file I can not import in iCloud. Is there another way?
