Implemente the same Delegate Access as in Outlook client app
Outlook online lacks this feature. It is also useful to grant send as permissions.
People who are delegates should be allowed to remove "themselves" as delegate to another calendar. Not "add" themselves, that's the violation. In the federal gov't they have a process to allow people to temporarily "act as manager" when a position is open. If I support that position I am constantly having to "teach" people how to add me as delegate, and then "teach" them how to remove me. I want to be able to remove myself from delegate access as well as Skype.
GUI from Outlook on the web have a below options when setting a delegate to your calendar access:
Delegate and send me a copy
Both my delegate and me
However, if you are using PowerShell, you can only select the Delegate only option for SharingPermissionFlags type. So it would be great if we could select the delegation type like GUI. I would like you to add a cmdlet to select the delegation type.
I would like to see the ability to add email delegates as well as SendAs permissions for Shared Mailboxes and Send on behalf of permissions for personal accounts in Outlook on the web.

I want a delegate to be able to send requests (meeting invitations) on my behalf, but not receive notifications since I do not want them to take action on notifications. Is this capability planned to be implemented in the future? At current the only options are to change my access (e.g. send me copies of responses and invites / don't send me responses or invites). The option "do not send delegate responses or invites" would be helpful.

I would like the "Delegate receives copies of meeting-related messages to me" flag available in O365 so I can turn it off. By default this is enabled and we do not want those messages for our sharing arrangement. I have to control this in the desktop client.
I have delegate access in Zoom for all my bosses and it currently wont let me set up a zoom for them in their calendar. We need Zoom delegate access.

As a manager with direct reports, I agree with the comments posted so far. Would it be possible to have the ability to choose to show the details or not (maybe via a toggle switch)? That way, we could have the option of choosing either a high-level overview or a detailed view.

The new Outlook 365 web version used to have BETTER delegate access than the desktop/old online versions (over Jan, Feb and early March 2019 I could view, edit, create and RSVP to both mine and my bosses appointments in the one calendar - I didn't have to toggle between the two calendars) but this has now disappeared in the last week or so (late March 2019). I'm back to using the desktop and web versions to perform these tasks, and toggling between calendars and different O365 versions depending on whether I am creating/editing/responding to my own calendar appointments, or on behalf of my boss. It's a very inefficient way to work!

Access to delegated calendars has been lost as at 27.03.2019. Can no longer edit or view full details of meeting appointments. Please fix ASAP! Cannot complete simple Executive Assistant tasks without it.
