  2. Filtering events by schema extensions

    We are looking for a good way to apply a few basic custom fields to calendar events so that we can tie them to resources that exist within our application. Schema extensions seem like they could fit the need, but a known limitation mentioned in the documentation is that filtering on Outlook entity types is not supported: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/known-issues?context=graph%2Fapi%2F1.0&view=graph-rest-1.0#filtering-on-schema-extension-properties-not-supported-on-all-entity-types.

    Is it possible that this could be supported in the future? Or do we need to look for a workaround?

    Note: We noticed that the "singleValueLegacyExtendedProperty" fits this description, but since this is a "Legacy" feature, I'm assuming we can expect…

  3. Always send meeting update to resources(like room)

    Currently, in the calendar of the room an event is created based on Email sent by the organiser while creating meeting
    in his calendar with selected room.

    It does update the event in the room calendar when name or time range of the event is changed,
    but it doesn't when new users are added or old ones are deleted from the meeting.

    Exchange treats resources (including rooms) like attendees and only send them updates when the changes are linked with them.

    Personally, I think that meeting updates should be always sent to resources.

  5. Write permission on user calendars

    Would be great if we were able to give 3rd party applications just the right to Write in to the users calendar without being able to read the users meetings. For this a simple free-busy permission would be great as well.

    Then we can have calendar functionality without giving away data to other vendors.
    As calendars can contain sensitive information that you are not in control over (you could get an meeting invite from someone else with sensitive information).

  6. A person's Out of Office Status/Message should be added to Calendar

    It does not make sense to have to look at a person Mailboxsettings to know if they are showing an out of office message and for how long.

    The details of whether a person is in or out of the office should be added to a user's Calendar properties (for example getSchedule) as it appears logical to me to get this information when querying a person's schedule/status/calendar.

    I have also often seen that people have an out of office notification but have nothing in their calendar.

  7. Allow granting access to a user's calendar without sending a sharing invitation by email

    It is currently possible (although not documented) to POST a CalendarPermission object to https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/users/{id}/calendar/calendarPermissions. This creates, rather than updates, a CalendarPermission entry.

    The issue is that the user or group that receives the permissions, also receives a sharing invitation by email. There should at least be an option to not send sharing invitations - this can be highly impractical if you grant access to security groups with many members.

  8. We would like the ability to hide the complete attendee list from attendees .

    We're building an integration where customers have privacy concerns and attendees to an event should not be able to see all other attendees on the invite. We believe this is referred as hide attendee list but is effectively the ability to BCC all attendees.

  9. getSchedule for all calendars

    getSchedule returns time slots only for the default calendar. The following calls:

    /me/calendars/getSchedule
    /me/calendars/<id>/getSchedule

    Fetch appointments for my default calendar only, regardless of which calendar id I use.

    The purpose of the schedules parameter is unclear. The documentation says:

    "A collection of SMTP addresses of users, distribution lists, or resources"

    But I don't know what this means. I put the email address of the user, and the other calendars are owned by that user, but their events are not included in the results.

    I need a way to get all of a users appointments on all their calendars.

  10. ApplicationAccessPolicy ability to define which scopes to limit

    The ability to limit application access can be done as described https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/auth-limit-mailbox-access

    Would like to be able to specify which scopes are to be limited.

    ie restrict every scope (i.e. calendar.read, mail.read, etc.) to users in group as described in article except these scopes user.read, mail.send

    Looking to be able to get basic user profile data for all users in org, but limit access to calendars of the define security group

  11. Increase suppotred page size for Calendar API

    By default we use $top=100 for our Calendar API requests for events enumeration (with /events endpoint). We want to increase the parameter to $top=1000. We tried that but unfortunately we receive a lot HTTP 503 errors from Microsoft. Is it possible to fix such behavior?

  12. request creation and access to a new calendar, with no permissions for existing calendars

    I recently connected to an association, which wanted to add events to my calendar. To do this, they wanted access to all my calendars. I asked the dev team if they could only create and maintain their own calendar, which I could enable as required, but they said that there is no API functionality that allows them to do that. So I told them I would look into that for them. Google calendars has the same problem, you are forced to give permissions to all calendars.

    For me as a user, it would be useful to see each associations events…

  13. notify of response status changes on shared calendar events for subscriptions

    Currently it's possible to create a subscription on a shared calendar. However, when a meeting attendee updates their response status to an event on the shared calendar, no notification is sent to any webhook subscriptions on that shared calendar. Additionally, the shared calendar event doesn't show attendee response statuses in either the Outlook UI or via the graph API; attendee response statuses always show as "none" on shared events.

    See here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60497361/why-am-i-not-getting-notifications-for-changes-on-shared-calendar-events

    and here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60515773/why-doesnt-my-shared-calendar-event-show-the-updated-attendee-response-statuses

  17. offer an API to retrieve instances of events via iCalUId

    Suppose you have the iCalUId of an instance of a recurring event and you want to retrieve it.

    Currently you need to know a date range when it occured, then you can the call GET /me/calendarview?startDateTime=2020-01-31T00:00:00
    &endDateTime=2020-02-29T00:00:00&
    $filter=iCalUId eq '{the iCalUId value}'

    If you don't know the time range, there is no way to retrieve the instance.
    It would be cool if you could retrieve it just like any other event e.g.
    /me/events?$filter=iCalUId eq '{the iCalUId value}'

  18. auditing

    Graph API : How can we Audit mailbox access by Application Permission AD apps that have been granted admin consent. We are logging client-request-id, request-id, timestamp and x-ms-ags-diagnostic from the HTTP response headers of Graph but we have to reach microsoft to get details of these calls.

    For an Azure AD/Office 365 admin, Graph API audit logs should be available in Security and Compliance section.

  19. Allow cancelling calendar events via API

    I need to cancel existing events via API.

    The current stable version of Graph API does not allow to cancel any existing event, and you cannot update the isCancelled property, so the only option is to delete the event.

    The cancel method is in the API beta version, but is seems it takes YEARS for the beta versions to be published as stable.
