I think the priority & status parameters (event, task) deserve a better visibility within edit windows & calendar view.

It's currently only available within the menu, and doesn't imply anything in Calendar view, except a lower display priority (eg two concurrent events, a cancelled one will be on the right of a confirmed one).

The Edit window could be changed by either :
- adding a dropdown list
- or a taskbar button calling a dropdown (just like the current privacy setting)

Concerning the calendar view, the priority could be set by an upwards or downwards arrow (resp. high and low priorities).
About event status (or "show time as" option), Outlook uses a left-hand bar that displays a different color according to that status. This idea could be re-used, or maybe a different color shading (just like a disabled button, for instance).

So far, I haven't found a similar RFE (or bug report) : apologies if there is. Since this request is about two concurrent things (edit & display), maybe it should be split in two.

Reproducible: Always
