Currently if you use a Notes date/time control on a form in the client, the control field still has the small calendar button on the right when it's in Read mode (see attached screenshot).
This has never made sense to me, because you can't change the date in Read ...
I want to be able to schedule a meeting lasting more than 24 hours, i.e. an over-nighter.
I dont want to have to make 2 separate entries, one from 13:30-midnight today, and then another 00:01 to 17:30 tomorrow.
This may be available in Notes 8, I'm not sure, but.

Possibility for planning a meeting in the calendar of someone else but getting the responses ( accept / decline ) in the own mailbox.

It's a BIG nuisance that once a Celendar Entry is saved you can't change its type or it's repeat properties. This leads to lots of recreation of Enties on a regular basis.
PLEASE fix this. I hear from customers about this more often than I'd like and I encounter ...
Sometimes it happens that an invited Room or resource declines the invitation (for example due to the fact that the capacity of the room would be exceeded otherwise). Since the room is moore important then other invitees (you could end up fighting with some other party who also think they ...
Ever deleted a Calendar Entry by mistake? There does not appear to be a way to recover from this, and especially with a customer appointment, this can lead to missed meetings, and revenue!
Often, many people in an organisation can not only see, but control content in other peoples ...
Have a visual live time indicator on calendar views.
When calendar is quite busy a time indicator would help to focus on current/upcoming appointments/schedules. The indicator would show up in the current day at the current time.
When you create a repeating meeting/appointment, you cannot edit the reoccurence information. For example, if I create a repeating appointment for every Tuesday for the next 5 weeks, and want to extend it. there's no way to edit this.
I hate to say it, in Outlook, I intuitively edit ...
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...
In 7.0.2, we got the ability to "subscribe" to iCal calendars - great idea, but the implementation when compared to other calendars left a little to be desired - import only. If the calendar is updated, oh well, you can remove the calendar, or change it's name, but not update ...
Many times we are requested by customers to change the default selection for when a person declines or delegates a meeting invitation in the mail template. Currently the "keep me informed of updates" is deselected, customers ask us to have it on by default. I find people don't usually read ...
Don't get me wrong, I believe the Notes calendar in Notes 8.x is greatly improved. But IMHO it is still way behind compared to let's say the GMail Calendar, when it comes to entering a new entry and rescheduling entries.
It might be time to take it to the ...
This is a problem I often hear from customers:
A user has delegated mail access to one or more assistants/team members. These are having editor access to his mailfile and thus can read all his private appointments. This is generally not working as expected by the user and brings ...
It can be really awful to have to rebuild a calendar that was accidentally deleted. Please make it possible to undelete them from trash!

The recent versions (6 onwards) of Notes client have provided presence awareness and the ability to start instant message sessions by right clicking on an email or entry in the NAB etc. It would be useful to be able to open the person's calendar in the same way. That is ...

We use the Calendar to schedule our On-Call duties, which last for a week at a time. We would like to be able to schedule an event that lasts for 7 days and then repeats every 4 weeks. Currently, to have a repeating event, the start and end date must ...
The "Two Week" calendar view is no longer available when using the Notes 8.5 client. Interestingly enough, the view does exist when using iNotes.
When a user wants to make a change to a repeating meeting a dialog box pops up asking which instances you want to change. It defaults to "All Instances". I think a more realistic default would be "Just this Instance".
Anyone have an idea how to change this in ...
Allow multiple meeting owners for a calendar invitation, so that multiple people can at a minimum see invitee status. (For example, my manager's assistant will schedule a meeting in my manager's name, but primarily on my behalf, but I can't see the invitee status or make any changes to the ...
I think it would be great if Notes directed a user to the calendar view of a mailbox if they only have access to the public documents.
In Notes 7, you can go to "Open Mail For", select a user, and the inbox is shown - only displaying meeting ...
If you are in "Lotus Symphony Presentation" presentation mode, it should be possible to disable alarms from the calendar.

We often schedule a meeting and book a room within our organisation but then receive an invite for the same thing from an external party who is also attending.
It would be good to be able to "accept" their meeting but somehow tell Notes that it's actually the same ...

When I have a one-on-one meeting which I schedule, and the person accepts yet later declines, by design it remains in my calendar (I believe). A few times this has happened and I've forgotten to go back and cancel so I think there is still a meeting as it remains ...
I've had several people ask me how its possible to delegate a meeting but have it not be removed from your calendar. This feature is available in most other email platforms.
If you are creating a calendar entry and choose "Repeat" and in "When the Meeting repeats" "custom" the date picker start at today and not at the meeting day, which would make more sence in my opinion.
Has your meeting every been "cancelled" because the required participants did not respond, do not have it on their calendar and thus forgot about it?
You cannot count on Lotus Notes filling it in as in ND8 because the other person may not even have Lotus Notes (e.g. intra ...
There are Owners Actions on a meeting for sending mail to all invitees, to all who reacted, or to all who do not react. Some users would like to add "Send mail to all who accepted".

Simply put, if you change the alarm snooze time when a Notes alarm appears, keep the adjusted value when time elapses. iNotes does this brilliantly; Notes re-adjusts the value back to the default.

When importing an iCal File from the internet (you´ve got to have your eMail open and not your calender - would be more intuitiv, i guess) it would be nice if i could define, for example, an individual colour for these set of entries.
The warning message you get when scheduling something outside your designated available times is ambiguous. It states "This entry conflicts with an existing entry on your calendar or your availability preferences. Create anyway?".

In previous releases folks with "read public documents" access could not do searches when the db was full text indexed.

Booking meetings for >2 people is painful in all mainstream calendar applications.
