Highlight optional meetings in outlook

2018/02/07

I find that Outlook calendar (I currently use the 2016 version) doesn’t highlight optional meeting invites very well. You have to read the fine print of the invite or dig around in the Scheduling assistant in the Calendar view.

One trick I found on stack overflow lets you change the color of any meetings on the calendar where you were an optional invite.

Optional appointments should then show up in a different colour.

I made mine red. I don’t attend optional meetings :)
