My most common action in Outlook Calendar is to view others' calendars and schedule a meeting that all can attend. I would imagine that this is pretty common. The new UI doesn't accommodate this well at all, so I'm still using the old one. Some features I think would be extremely helpful:
- Simple search by name to add a calendar, preferably with one click (in the old UI you have to right-click 'Other Calendars', and select 'Open Calendar' and choose the calendar for every. single. person. (The modal closes each time, and you have to re-open it the same way.) In the new UI you can't even do that, you have to scroll through a list with no filtering or search, which is totally impractical.
- I commonly need to meet with the same people over and over based on unique projects. I'd like to see custom grouping (not based on a DL email) so that I can create individual teams based on projects I'm working on, and view all of their calendars without adding each person individually. Today you have to configure an email group to do this, which requires IT and isn't easily remove-able. Groups I create should only be visible/editable by me, and shouldn't have any bearing on email distribution lists.
- Finally, if I'm looking at six people's calendars and I schedule a meeting, the meeting should default to inviting those six people. Why else would I be looking at their calendars? Today you have to add all those calendars (in a cumbersome process), find a time, schedule, then re-add all those people to the event. Seems silly.
Hope this helps!
