Very nice, I'm sure my team will be happy to hear!
Thanks for the heads up Juan. Very nice.

This is something I havent seen before, but considering how often I use OWA probably old news by now. Still, the Quote action seems useful, the Highlight one can benefit from better color selection. Here's a screenshot:

Ah thank you for the reminder - I totally forgot about this feature.

Interestingly, if you already have the FindTime add-in installed you end up with both it and the Find a time functionality when you create a new meeting.

I am missing the search box to search for guest users. We have many listed and scrolling to find an external user is a bit inconvenient...

I see those section too with only guest users a no action to do.

I see all users there and not only #EXT# users. Hmm
