How to Set Calendar Item Importance in Microsoft Outlook
You can set a priority for a calendar item in Outlook much like you do for email messages, to allow recipients to categorize meetings.
This feature works the same in all modern versions of Microsoft Outlook: 2010, 2013, and 2016.

- While in the new invitation, select an item in the Tags group of the Meeting tab of the Ribbon. Choose Private, High Importance, or Low Importance.
