  • Hi ,

    According to my test and research, we could only disable the icons such as “New Meeting” like below through Group Policy but cannot make them disappear.

    To achieve this, please try the following steps:

    1. First of all, we need to import the Office 2016 Group Policy template into your Group Policy. After downloading, you can follow the step 4 of this article to copy the ADMX and ADML files to the PolicyDefinitions folder. (Please Note: Since the web site is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information.)
    2. And then, in GPO, go to: User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Microsoft Outlook 2016 | Disable Items in User Interface | Custom | Disable command bar buttons and menu items.
    3. Double "Disable command bar buttons and menu items" and enable this option to edit. 
      Control ID  New Items 18743  New Meeting 21099
    4. Restart your Outlook after applying.

    Besides, I also found a workaround which may be useful to you. You could hide these options like blew via File > Options > Customize Ribbon > Home(Calendar) > Right click "New" > Remove. If possible, you could have multiple users operate at the same time for convenience.

    Hope this can be helpful.
