  3. Add option to include a Teams meeting by default on all new meeting requests

    It seems that meetings are sent accidentally without an online meeting being added to the invite. When the meeting starts, people don't have any meeting info to join the meeting, which causes unnecessary chaos.

    It would be great if there was an option to include a Teams meeting by default on all new meeting requests that are created.

  4. Fix ICS importing in "New Outlook"

    I attempted to import an ICS file in New Outlook. I get a view of the calendar item, but no way to "save" it to my calendar. Also, if i "edit" the calendar item, I then get a "Save" button but saving the item doesn't actually reflect on the calendar in "New Outlook". Had to switch back to old outlook to see the item.

  8. Change Calendar Layout to Match Calendar Layout in Outlook for Windows

    Change the calendar pane to appear on Mac in the same layout it does on Windows PC, where names are on the horizontal axis and times on the vertical.

    The calendar organization on Windows shows each person’s calendar name on the y axis and the times on the x axis. I still see that information on my Outlook for Mac calendar but it’s organized in a much more confusing way, with times on the y axis and blocks of color for each person’s calendar on the x axis. Everything is squished together and it's very hard to tell whose schedule…

  9. changing a url in location (bug)

    When I create a meeting I can add a URL as the location. If I'm editing a meeting and change the URL it will be removed when I try to save. I think this was possible before 16.36 (20032418).

  10. Allow editing alarms in drop down menu

    When in either calendar or list mode, you should be able to edit the alarm setting in the drop down menu. Currrently, you have to double click to open the calendar item, adjust the alarm setting in the pop-up box, and then close it. Three clicks where 1 would be much better

  11. Teams option for meetings

    Currently it seems that only O365 customers can see a Teams toggle in Outlook for Mac while every customer on Windows can see that toggle.
    Please enable the option to use Teams for a meeting in the Outlook calendar for all customers (on-premise etc.) on Mac (tested with "New Outlook for Mac 16.39 insider build and Teams 1.3.00.9271).

  12. End meetings early (25m / 50m)

    Add support to end appointments & meetings early (25m / 50m) so you have time to prepare for the next meeting. Already supported by Outlook for Windows: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f

  13. Show the calendars of your Office colleagues

    Show the calendars of your Office colleagues without forcing you to request to share dozens of calendars. And let people sort the order based on their priorities, rather than forcing default to alphabetical. These seem to me utterly basic functions required to work in an organization.

  14. Let us import Google Calenders without account creation

    My main email address is also used for a Google account, so I can't add that Google account (it always adds my mail account).

    Therefore it would be great if I could import the calendar from that Google account, otherwise, the "My day" feature is pretty much useless (as it doesn't show all my events).

  16. Automatically decline meetings when already booked

    When someone sends you a calendar invite that clashes with an existing booking, automatically decline the invite.

  17. Meetings subject edit

    I have a VM with outlook for windows to have access to this feature.
    I prefer to rename subjects of meeting with special words to easily know for which customer is the appointment.

  19. Make current day and time more apparent on calendar.

    The little red partial ball next to the current time is not enough indicator for the current time/day. Really would like the current day and time to stand out better so it’s easier to read at a glance. Would like the column of the current day highlighted better and the current time highlighted better.

  20. Add alarm icon to main calendar (not just list mode)

    In Old Outlook, you could look at the calendar view and see which entries had alarms set for them. In the New Outlook, you can only see this in list view.
