  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!

  3. 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.

  6. 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

  7. Multiple Meeting Time Slots - to offer when scheduling meetings

    When I send a meeting invite to a person or a group, it would be nice to send it with multiple time options, where there could be different choices.

    IF a group: each person can individually choose which time they would like to attend. (This works great when offering trainings.)

    IF a group: everyone can vote on the best time, and then the organizer selects on of the times

    Individual: The individual is sent a few options and then they can choose one.

  8. Integrate StaffHub/Microsoft Teams' schedules into the Calendar so people can see work hours availability

    It would be awesome if the schedule that we have in StaffHub/Microsoft Teams were to appear in the Outlook Calendar. That way, we would be "busy" or "unavailable" during our off hours.

  9. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. The language setting is not applied to the holiday calendars

    My outlook is in Traditional Chinese except for the holiday calendars.
    I recently re-merge the outlook app and found out the "Hong Kong Holiday" is in simplified Chinese, which is not a language used in Hong Kong. Further more, If I subscript to holiday calendar of another country, it is also shown in simplified calendar.

    It may seem fine if French (Canada) be replaced with French (France), but think of Greek, Arabic or Mongolian language, but in Latin alphabets. As a Hong Konger, I would personally be ok with Chinese (Taiwan) as it is also in Traditional Chinese script, but…

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

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

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
