  1. Stop Outlook.com From Converting Appointments into Meetings

    Please fix issue with Outlook.com converting Appointments into Meetings. Issue arises when Appointments are edited using iPhone or Android phone. When the edited Appointment syncs with Outlook.com, it is converted into a Meeting. The issue began after recent update of Outlook.

    • When activating birthday calendar it should populate existing contacts

      Hello,
      Can we just quickly acknowledge the fact that the birthday calendar DOES NOT populdate birthdays for existing outlook contact BUT for existing skype contact.
      The calendar has exactly 1 task - go through the contact list - get all attributes birthday and add an entry in the calendar for this Firstname and Surname.
      Does it do this? How can something be so basic and not work with outlook. Google can just laugh at this with their superior contact/calendar management

        • Being able to create non-regular recoccuring meetings in Outlook

          Being able to create reoccurring meetings that don't fit within the very limited category currently on OUtlook calendar. If one month I want a reoccurring meeting on the first Tuesday but in the second or third month I want it on the 3 Wednesday, there is no way to currently accomplish this. Take if from someone who schedule a lot of meetings this would save so much time to be able to pick and choose from a calendar the days the meetings occur.

          • 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.

            • Beta View for Calendar removes too many features

              Unless I'm missing something blindingly obvious, the beta calendar view for individual calendar items appears to have no ability to:
              - Enter a detailed description
              - Set free/busy status
              - Set an appointment as Private
              - State what timezone the meeting should be created in
              - Invite other people to a meeting

              In other areas, there is:
              - No longer a "Work Week" view
              - No ability to create a new calendar
              - No way to share a calendar
              - No longer the very helpful "today" view pane on the right of the Month view
              - Only 3 items per…

              • 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!

                    • Import Google Calendar

                      All of my educational and work calendars are currently managed using Google Calendar. This is just what all of my current organizations and companies use. I would like to be able to import all of these calendars into Outlook using the iCal format so that I can manage all of my email accounts and calendars in one app.

                          Well in Microsoft Teams chat, why couldn't we be able to tag a scheduled meeting, and have a place on the meeting details to read associated threads?

                            While adding an appointment in my calendar, I use to be able to add notes below. Then at a later date if I wanted to 'add' to those notes, I could. NOW I CAN'T.

                                      New update is awful. I want to be ankle tho view the whole month by default then press a day to view that. A few dates at the top then mostly blank screen if no appointments is no good!

                                        NEVER make changes like putting stuff from my emails in my calendar without me asking for it! Spent the last 20 minutes of my life undoing this because ofcourse I had to log in to change it back even tho I never asked for it, and I did not rememberthe pasword because I never use it! Outlook is ****, bring back Hotmail!

                                        • Add "Emphasis" to Meeting Invite Responses

                                          Currently you are able to respond to a meeting with Accept, Decline, or Tentative and are given the option to craft a personal note to the organizer.
