Hi @JuOrm,

there are many users that have similar issues with the disappearance of the 'Scheduling Poll' feature in Outlook.

I cannot find the Scheduling Poll in Outlook for Windows - Microsoft Community
FindTime Add-In is no longer appearing in the Add-In for Outlook - Microsoft Community

Microsoft has replaced the 'FindTime' add-in with the 'Scheduling Poll' feature, which is now integrated directly into Outlook clients for all users as a native feature. If you cannot locate the 'Scheduling Poll' feature, it's advisable to check if your Outlook is up-to-date.

You can also directly access the 'Scheduling Poll' organizer dashboard here: 
Scheduling Poll organizer dashboard - Microsoft Support

Hi Leon

Thanks very much for your reply :)

Where you have said the following: You can also directly access the 'Scheduling Poll' organizer dashboard here: Scheduling Poll organizer dashboard - Microsoft Support

This only gives a dashboard of previous polls.

The posts you've shared re other users having the same issue, doesn't give any way to resolve it unfortunately.

The scheduling poll was there before Christmas as I used in numerous times on OWA but it just isn't showing anymore.

Hi @JuOrm,

thanks for your update.

You are right, the 'Scheduling Poll' organizer dashboard only shows previous entries.

Unfortunately, there are currently no official solutions or established steps for the this issue, there is still many unresolved posts with the same issue.

@JuOrm in the "new" Outlook desktop and web version I'm also very annoyed about the disappeared button. 

 

After I switched back to my previous Outlook desktop version I can see the button and create polls again. 

 

My Outlook desktop version shows: "Outlook for Microsoft 365 MSO (Version 2312 Build 16.0.17126.20126) 64-bit".

@fwaegele Thank you for your reply.

 

Are you talking about 'Poll' rather than scheduling poll, as scheduling poll has never been available in the desktop outlook, only within OWA>

 

 

Scheduling poll was available on desktop for me probably since autumn 2022.  

These are the buttons i see in the "old" version of Outlook desktop:

In the "new" Outlook version it was this one before it disappeared:

I also use it quite regularly since switching to the "New" Outlook and was rather annoyed when I went to use it today and found it missing. I can still go back and look at old Scheduling Polls here: https://outlook.office.com/findtime/dashboard/ but can't create any new ones.
I am having the same issue. It is not showing on either for me. The new 'Scheduling poll' has never been an option in the desktop app. Since they updated from FindTime, there has been nothing but issues.
Glad to say that this has reappeared now.

Hi @JuOrm,

thanks for your update.

Have you changed anything in the meantime with your Outlook? Did you make an update?

Indeed! It also reappeared for me this morning too. No updates performed on my side.

Hi Leon

No I didn't make any changes, it just came back.

Thanks.

Mine is displaying greyed out so unable to click and create any Scheduling Polls.
