  1. Calendar

    Improve calendar section of Outlook:
    • Combine tasks and calendar into one section/ program (like Merge Calendar)
    • View tasks in monthly calendar view as well (like in Google Calendar), possibility to tick them right out of the calendar
    • Option to add time to tasks -> they appear in that certain time in calendar
    • Add sub-tasks and/ or ticking-boxes to tasks
    • Show pictures directly in note section
    • Possibility to view all appointments in list but in chronological order (currently all repeating elements are listed once but not every date they take place)
    • Option to just…

    • I cannot delete some calendars in outlook.com.

      I have several "secondary' calendars on Outlook.com. I create a new one each week, and download it to my phone. I then try deleting the prior week's calendar. Sometimes I can delete the "old" calendar, others will not. When the calendar is not deleted, I get this error: "Couldn't open the calendar. The action couldn't be completed. The error code is -1".

      I am trying to delete from my desktop computer.

      I always use Firefox, that is the browser with which I have initially had this issue.

      I tried clearing cache, cookies, all history, and browsing data. Still the same…

      • Outlook for Android Calendar

        The calendar accessed from Windows 10 Mail (also MSN Mail) will no longer sync with non-Windows apps on my Android phone (e.g. "Calendar"). The Windows for Android app will sync with Windows 10 Mail but it is a very weak app in that you cannot see a full month with appointments on one screen. The most you can see is 3 days and even there you can only see 11 hours without scrolling up and down which makes it difficult to use when trying to make an appointment in a place such as a doctor's office. To see what a…

        • New Calendar Beta Preview

          HI, just noticed today that I now have a BETA version of the new Outlook.com Calendar! It's awesome to see that it's finally getting modernized (can't wait to see People/Contacts updated next). I haven't had much time to go through everything yet, however I noticed right away the right-hand OUTLOOK of the current day select is now missing! I look at that every single time I view my calendars. I use the MONTH view and when I click on dates I like seeing everything that's on my agenda for that day. This is a HUGE feature I can't live without…

          • URL to trigger ical subscription modal

            Outlook has a URL which can automatically trigger the "Subscribe to ICS calendar", however this feature is currently not working properly and it's not documented.

            Currently the URL used to trigger the ical subscription modal is:
            https://outlook.live.com/owa?path=/calendar/action/compose&rru=addsubscription&url=https://example.com/timetable.ics&name=TEST

            Using that link when you are not logged to outlook will ask you first to login and it will then redirect you to your calendar and popup the subscription modal automatically. However if you were already logged in to outlook before trying that url, you will still be redirected to your calendar however it will show you the "add new event" modal instead…

            • 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.

                        Thank you for the feedback. We’re working on improving the overall experience with daily Agenda Mail to make it more relevant and personal. If you prefer not to receive your agenda in mail, you can opt out by going to Outlook.com > Settings > Calendar > Agenda mail.

                        It would be lovely to be able to filter events by Category, Owner, etc. when looking at an overview level.

                              • 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!

                                • New Family Calendar can't be used from Outlook 2016

                                  The new Family Calendar seems to work fine from web and mobile/UWP apps, but can't be changed/added to from Outlook 2016 even though it is picked up automatically from the outlook.com account. To make this capability actually useful for anyone using Outlook 2016, this needs to be fixed!

                                  • Show time zone when setting up new appointments

                                    When setting up events in Outlook Calendar, I would like the Time Zone controls to always be visible. As it is, I have to hit the Time Zone button under option to make them visible. I would like the option of making them always visible to prevent mistakes, especially while setting up appointments that will occur in another timezone.

                                      • You make it easy to add new calendars but impossible to delete them!!!

                                        Make it easy to delete and/or rename calendars. I have yet to figure out how and I work on interface designs for my job. A simple trash can would suffice.
