Idea: Add Calendar Event directly from Inbox
Idea shared by kevind - January 30, 2016 at 9:49 AM
Proposed
Often I'm in my Inbox reading a message about an upcoming event (webinar, meeting, conference call, etc.). I would like to add that event to my calendar, so I naturally click on the Calendar icon. But then I can't see the message with the event details. Here's how to make it easy:
 
Under the Add button, it currently shows Tasks. Just add another choice for Appointment. You could even scan the message for a date/time to pre-fill the form. Gmail has something like that where you can hover over a date/time and add it to your calendar. That would be even better, but probably more difficult.
 
Thanks,
Kevin

A recent post "Create task from email" reminded me of the above idea to create an event from an email.
 
There's definitely demand as here's a similar request:

Has there been any updated on this, will it be included in version 16? I use this feature all the time in outlook and it would be a nice addition.
 
Thank you,
