    Ok, so today I heard a story from a colleague about how he scheduled a meeting for March 30 with a team in India. After scheduling the meeting someone from India reaches out to him and informs him that date is a recognized holiday (by the gov’t and Msft the employer). Not uber embarrassing, but not awesome either. It certainly could be avoided with some system intelligence.

    Given the above, it’s seems to me that outlook could add intelligence to the take of scheduling that basically cross references country codes to look for discrepancies between attendees. If there are attendees located in different countries, add a second workflow that pings the global holidays api and surfaces any relevant information to the user in order to help inform the task of scheduling.

    Food for thought
