With ghosted appointments, we are all now spolied and in the habit of just looking at the calendar rather than messing with each calendar thingie in Notes.  The only problem is, if a meeting has been cancelled or updated, there's no way to know without double clicking on the calendar item.  It would be nice if in the calendar view Items with updates had some sort of indicator - maybe a red ! or other item where the clock or mail icon shows - so that at a glance I know updates have been made to that appt.
Another option would be just to move them and show the new time as ghosted.

I agree. A visual indicator of an updated meeting would be very helpful.

I agree that if a meeting is canceled, that a red circle with a circumscribed line in the event is helpful, but there is a mail preference that will automatically update canceled meetings and thus, pull it from the calendar.

But an autorefresh option in the calendar Day-At-A-Glance plugin would help, or at least have a setting in the preferences for refresh frequency -- including "when I receive a meeting update or cancel for a meeting held today"
