Default Appointment length in Outlook Calendar

New Contributor

Hi all,

In Outlook 365, the default meeting length is set to the same time than the "View Timescale" (Current View - View Settings - Other Settings).

When the "View Timescale" is set to 30 min for example, then the"Default duration for new appointments and meetings" setting in File - Options - Calendar - Calendar Options is ignored (also when the "Shorten appointments and meetings" is ticked and set to any amount of time).

I would like to have the "View Timescale" set to 30 min and the "Default Meeting Duration" at 1 hour. Does anyone know if that is possible or is this a bug?

Thanks in advance for the help.
