How to add meeting organizer column in Outlook?

By default you are not able to find out any information about meeting organizer, until you open the meeting in a new window. It is tedious to open a meeting every time for getting the organizer information. Actually you can change the calendar view to list view, and add / show the Meeting organizer information in the events list in a column.

Before you configure the view settings, you must make sure the Microsoft Outlook is in the Calendar view. You can get into the Calendar view by clicking the Calendar in the navigation pane.
