Adding Custom Fields to a Calendar Appointment

I have a manager asking for us to created a shared or public calendar for our IT department to use to schedule travel time. The manager would like for the ability to select from predefined fields in a drop down list when creating the appointment that are standardized to everyone who has access to the calendar.

A sharepoint site is out of the question; the manager wants to be able to add the Calendar to Outlook. I have researched this issue and have not found a definitive solution. Is there a third party application that would allow me to do this?

What you've described is a custom Outlook form.  You don't need a third-party app.  Outlook has all the necessary tools built into it.  All the essential details required to build a custom form are available at this page on Outlookcode.com.

Is there a third party application that makes it simple do this? I'm not intricately familiar with Outlook.

After a custom form is created, would it be possible to make it to where whenever a new appointment is added to the calendar, the new appointment defaulted to the custom form for everyone who had access to that calendar?

Yes, that's possible.  I believe there are instructions for doing that on the page I linked to in my initial response.
