        My team wants to be able to add an event to our personal Outlook calendars, and have the option to include it to our team's SharePoint calendar. Also, to send this event to specific team members, not everyone in the team.

        Yes, and add to that an option for an attendee to notify organizer of a meeting if he/she is attending physically or via online meeting (in order for organizer to book meeting room according to number of persons showing up in person.

        It would also be good if organizer could see how many have "added meeting to calendar"

        Calendar integration between Outlook/Exchange/SharePoint really needs to take a few leaps forward. People want to be able to see time and resources (where, what and who) and one of the key places that's done is in a calendar. If SharePoint/Outlook/O365 can provide better integration and options I think this would leap the platform ahead. As noted by others, there are other solutions and platforms that have much better calendar integration. :-)

        Have the location field auto populate with addresses and show a map of the location when event details are opened

        I guess this is never going to happen - apparently they've been "Thinking About IT" since March '16...

        Require to display/edit custom fields from SharePoint Calendar from within Outlook Calendar

        Make SP calendar event notifications addable to an Outlook Web App calendar. When I receive an event notification in my email from SP I can't add that event to my Outlook Web App calendar. I have to manually type in the event to my calendar. This functionality is available from other websites, eg if I receive an event notification from EventBrite I can click to add it to my OWA calendar.

        I would like to see the integration of the calendar from outlook to sharepoint, and that we can reserve resources with both of them, more fields and a way to use the calendar with more than just making appointments

        Microsoft thinks for more then 2 years now if they really need to pick up on the user voice. Office 365 becomes Office 730+

        Best part, 557 votes..and not 1 response from the SharePoint team...Come on Microsoft get your stuff together!

        Not really needing the Outlook Calendar, but atleast add the Email Extension to be able to activated in SharePoint Site Collection Features.

        We currently have a need for its functionality and can only get it via a 3rd party. Kinda ridiculous we have to pay for more things when my company already pays enough to Microsoft.

        Getting office 365 services to work together should be a basic design principal for all of the apps. It's amazing that this "single platform" makes users duplicate work or information.

      • Noah Diegel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This should be considered basic functionality! We want our SharePoint homepage to be a jump-off point to start your morning, and a quick reference to see what's happening around the company. Being able to view all of the meetings happening for the day or week in a list on the front page is key.

        It is a real pain that a meeting invite cannot be forwarded to a SharePoint Calendar, and attendees/rooms cannot be invited from the SharePoint calendar anymore, and that a SharePoint Calendar easily integrated into the Outlook 2016/365 views.

        Please reinstate these essential integration capabilities.

        O365 is getting more and more siloed!

      • Gauthier commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        And also to support occupation type (Free/Busy/Out of Office/Working Elsewhere) from Outlook in SharePoint! (much easier to implement!)

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We just shifted to Office 365. We lost the functionality of being able to invite SharePoint calendars to meetings through a simple Outlook meeting request. Now every meeting request needs to be done twice. Why did that capability not come over from the original SharePoint??

      • Doug commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Customized CATEGORIES and for meeting requests/updates, ability to keep all the versions especially on recurring meetings where agendas and participants change over time, in addition to supporting "mandatory", "optional" and "resource/room" bookings would be ideal.
