  1. Invite Attendees wont accept email address with o'apostrophe

    When inviting attendees to new event, Outlook Calendar now won't accept email address with apostrophe eg in format "john.o'smith@agency.gov.xx" (generates error box "One or more attendees have invalid email addresses"), even though same email address is used to send emails and even forward received calendar events. This is a new development. Outlook used to let me invite to this (same) address - now just get error - is there any setting in Outlook Calendar to fix this incorrect error/block ??

  2. Please add support for complications on the new Apple Watch 4 faces

    I would like to request that you add support for the new infograph modular watch face for Apple Watch 4. You currently support the regular modular watch faces. Also, if possible, please add support for the all the new inforgraph watch faces. It would be great to get my outlook calendar on as many watch faces as possible as my company does not allow our outlook work email to go thru the built in apple mail/calendar apps, which are available as a complications on almost every watch face.

    Thank you!

  5. email Reminders to appointments/meetings set in the Caledar are no longer available

    Old versions of Outlook had this ability, but the new beta only allows Pop-Up reminders. Email reminders should still be an option as I have found they are noticed more by users and participants of meetings set up in Calendar. Bring the option back!

  6. Be able to send yourself on email notification about an appointment.

    In the old version of outlook.com calendar you could send your self an email notification of an appointment. In the new beta version of outlook.com calendar there is no way to send yourself an email notification. Why did this feature go away? I liked to send myself email notifications, then delete them as I had the appointment. Please re-new this feature.

  7. In the calendar week view, I would like to be able to customize the view so that I can see the entire day. Currently I can only see 5 hours

    Provide for a custom view of the calendar, so that if I want to view a whole week across and the entire day down. I hate having to scroll up and down just to check and see if I have any open slots. Before the last revision that type of view was available and I really, really miss it.

  8. need more than 10 week option on reminders of re occurring appointments

    I use outlook calendar to remind me to order tablets. They are supplied in 12 week batches and the calendar will only allow 10 week intervals.
    I have previous reminders set for longer so this must have been changed.

    Please give user defined week/day/month/year value

  11. Out of office color contrast

    The contrast in color when there is an all-day out of office event needs to be improved. It's almost impossible to see a difference.

  12. Calendar daily sidebar on month view

    I am an Associate Real Estate Broker who uses the month view. Please return the daily sidebar which detailed the given days activities/appointments. It is vital to my use. I would like to stay with Outlook.

  13. Please make it easier to import from a file. I know it's possible but it's so unintuitive. Especially on mobile.

  14. Issues with Opening and Moving a Calendar from Directory

    The option to either create a "New Calendar" or "Discover Calendars" is hidden under a calendar group that I created, not the default group that comes with your Outlook account. It was more difficult to find out where this feature lived when I first switched to the new outlook view. When I open a calendar from my directory, it adds that person's calendar to the "People's Calendars" group; but I cannot move that calendar to any other calendar group once it has been added. Can we get the ability to right-click a group and add a person from a directory…

  15. Calendar notification problem

    Hi Experts,

    I have a big problem using outlook calendar.

    There was a meeting invited from other group, sent to my boss and me.
    I could not not accept the event right away, as I have to see if my boss is able to attend it or not. Then, he accepted the event, while I had no notification (of course he is angry when I ask him about the meeting)

    So how do I get notification through email in that case? (setting instruction please?)

    Also, how I get EMAIL notification for any change/update in the calendar that has my email…

  18. Issue with calander

    If you go to the year 9999, and then go to december, you will be sent to the error page with a callstack due to it trying to load dates in the year 10000, other months in the year 9999 its fine, and if you try go to the year 10000 it will just redirect you to the current date, but as dec 9999 is in bounds, it does not redirect, and then tries to load the first few days of jan 10000, causing the error to be thrown

  19. Calendar interface dynamic

    Calendar user interface should be able to dynamically size itself depending on entries. Example - (Month view) When there are several entries on the same day that stack, allow the calendar to resize the XY of the grid to conform to amount of entries. As it stands, when there are too many entries for the XY day grid, calendar will add an arrow to indicate there are more unseen entries. This does not scroll the entries, it takes you to another view. Also, when in Week view, allow column/row data to be swapped. Example - (Week view) Instead of only…

  20. No Ability to Delete Unwanted Calendars on Outlook.com

    The options list (under gear symbol) does not have a provision for deleting unwanted user created Outlook.com calendars. I can delete from Outlook 2016, but they keep coming back because I cannot delete from Outlook.com Calendar. Is there a hidden command? Or is it not possible. If not, please provide one!
