  1. Add ability for Zoom Meetings to be added to calendar.

    Outlook.com should be able to read emails that contain Zoom meeting requests (usually with a weblink) and add them to calendars.

  4. Allow me to update an invite without sending an email

    Allow me to easily and intuitively update an invite without sending an email out to the group.

    I often need to make a small change to an invite that shouldn't require blasting everyone on the invite list.

    I've been using Outlook for two years and if I'm able to do this, I've not found a way that works reliably. I regularly feel embarrassed at work thanks to your software. I see little concern for users here. I'm a passionate detractor of Microsoft product as a result.

  8. meeting hour limitation

    It would be great to limit the number of hours of meeting on a day. Once you reach a certain number of meeting hours on the calendar, it will block any new meeting and full all your day as busy.

  10. automatic travel entry on calendar does not find latest flight info

    Outlook found my flight and added it automatically to my calendar. When I received an email from the airline changing the flight time, Outlook did not update. Then, I could not correct the flight times myself because the automatic entry is uneditable. Nor can I forward the itinerary to anyone. So I am deleting the automatic entries and adding them back myself.

  11. See all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified

    I would like to see or obtain all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified. Because If we change the date or time for one of the recurrent event, it’s no longer treated as the recurrent item and we are not able to identify when the item has been changed by opening the original recurrent item.
    So, it would be great if we could see all events for the recurrent item including events whose date/time has been modified.

  12. business day

    I would like to be able to have a reoccurring reminder/appt set for the 1st business day or weekday of each month. I don't think that option is available. Thought it might be helpful to more folks as well.

  13. Add 'Never' as an option for default calendar reminders

    It is possible to set a reminder on an event to 'Never' - however for some reason it is not possible to set this as the default option. It seems an easy thing to add and would make a big difference! I do not use event reminders so every time I add an event I have to remember to select 'Never'.

  15. deleted meeting details

    Allow the user to be able to display the Teams Meeting details in the body of the email after being deleted. So far, the only way to join after having deleted the meeting details in the body is to click into the Join Teams Meeting option at the top of the window header, which is not user friendly.

  18. Find free calendar slot for all or most invitees to be able to attend

    When you are looking to get multiple people onto a meeting it would be great if there was a feature that correlated all invitees calendars to give options on when meeting would be feasible or the best options ( John Smith out of office but the remainder free etc ).

  19. Make it possible to schedule a meeting in Outlook.com (on the mobile app) and add a Zoom meeting

    Currently it is possible to schedule a meeting in the Outlook mobile app for Office 365 accounts and have the option to schedule a Zoom meeting instead of just a teams or skype for business meeting.

    Currently Outlook.com accounts in the Outlook mobile app only seem to support scheduling an online meeting through regular Skype (which isn't very helpful these days).

    It is possible to add the Zoom plugin to Outlook.com accounts and use it via the web, it just doesn't seem possible to use that in the mobile app for Outlook.com accounts

  20. [Suggestion]:Easy time setting (24 hour enabling)

    Allow easy shorthand for event time (e.g. 24 hour format; 1200, 0800, 1700). Google calendars does this, and that aspect alone saves individuals 2 minutes/event of failed attempts to set times for meetings.
