Really good example of a really bad User Experience – Courtesy of Outlook for Mac 2011

I received a calendar sharing request from a colleague at work today. In a moment of utter brilliance (not) the Microsoft User Experience team decided that it would be fun to send the recipient of the request to a help URL to learn how to give calendar permissions to someone else.

Really Microsoft???? Is this the best you could do?

Here’s a little User Experience tip for you (for when you push out the next product update) a nice action in the email it self saying “Allow [Name of requester] permission to see my calendar” and “Do not allow [Name of requester] to see my calendar“  would be greatly appreciated.

Here’s the screenshot of the said offense:
