  1. Adding Skpe Meeting to New Outlook Calendar - Online Version (Not Desktop App)

    I can add a skype meeting/phone with the old version of calendar on the desktop app. However, I am trying to get used to the online mail and calendar. When I click my calendar and create a new event, I do not see the option to add a Skype phone. How do I do this?

    I am on a mac.

    Thank you.

    • Multi Calendar sync like google's selectsync to help sync with native android

      I have talked with Microsoft support and Outlook App for Android Support and they both say that I need to report this issue of not all calendars being available from outlook account to Outlook.com. Google's selectsync allows mutliple google calendars from one google account to be symchronised with third party applications like Calendar UWP for Windows 10. Why are not all my Outlook Calendars from my one Outlook account not showing up in native android sync???

      • Be able to upload pictures to calendar events from the outlook app.

        It would be nice to be able to upload pictures and view to calendar events from the app. The desktop version allows this.

        • Stop Trying to Force Everyone to Use the Cloud

          As much as I love the cloud for convenience in my personal life, it is not possible professionally as psychologist. Microsoft is making it harder and harder to protect privacy in Outlook and Office. Give people a choice. The latest thing is the inability to sync Outlook 2019 with Itunes. I sent a similar complaint to Apple. Play nice. You are both great companies.

              • Save my marriage: let me share my outlook calendar with my wife, who uses google Calendar.

                Save my marriage! Please let me share my outlook calendar with my wife, who uses google Calendar. I'm an absent minded professor, and it is bad for my marriage when I surprise her with business travel. My organization just switched over to Outlook, and it was easy for me to figure out how to see her google calendar in Outlook. But I can't share my new Outlook Calendar with her, and it is going to be a disaster.

                • out of office color too faint

                  Hello Microsoft,
                  When creating an all day out of office event in Outlook 2016, it is very difficult to change the shading to make it as noticeable as it was in previous versions of Outlook. Is there any way to make the distinction stronger by default or give end users a way of customizing this? Thanks!

                  • Set calendar for appointment

                    Please give us the option to change the calendar an appointment is stored and also select the calendar where an appointment is added when an invitation is accepted.

                    I use different calendars, some of them are shared, some not. When I receive a meeting invitation it is always added to my main calendar. And since the new beta version it is not even possible to change the calendar of a self created appointment.

                    • Multiple Calendars In Peek / To-Do Bar (Outlook 365)

                      Bring back the ability to view multiple calendars and/or other calendars (ie. Shared Calendars) in the To-Do Bar (View/To-Do Bar/Calendar) of Outlook 365.

                      Not everyone uses the default outlook calendar, and many people have separate business (outlook) and personal (Gmail) calendars that they like to see as one in the side bar.

                      You allow us to see all our calendars in the "Calendar", but not in the To-Do Bar when we "dock to peek".

                      • Calendar has lost an enormous amount of functionality. No longer able to include other participants and not able to add email reminders

                        Calendar events have become unbelievably simplistic in the beta. Why would you remove so much functionality? Please add back functionality to invite other participants and to send email reminders and multiple reminders to all participants.

                            Please add in more colour choices for calendar. And make them streamlined with the Outlook.com app for iOS and Android. It gets confusing when the app updates and the colours go haywire! Otherwise, it looks great!

                              I would find it very helpful if there was a search facility in Outlook Calendar as I have calendar entries going back 20 years and would like to be able to quickly find a historical entry via a key word.

                                It would be nice if there was an option (like the available, busy, out of office, and tentative options) to mark the calendar and your status as "Working from Home" or "Remote." In my office, lots of people work from home with various schedules, so it would be nice if there was an easy way to check that information without having to individually ask each person.

                                  • Agenda view for the Calendar

                                    The calendar currently supports 3 types of views: Day, Week and Month. Please add support for Agenda view. This would especially be convenient in case the browser window is small or narrow.

                                    • FYI Meeting Attendees

                                      Here's a feature I've always wanted. I'd like to be able to create a meeting or be added to a meeting, but I'd like it to not be shown as busy on my schedule. Sometimes, I'd like to let my boss or wife know about meetings and appointments which they will not attend. Sometimes, I arrange appointments and meetings for others which I will not attend. It's great to have it on my calendar so I know that my wife is at the doctor right now or let her know that I'm driving the kids to lacrosse, but I don't…

                                        Mobile Outlook Calendar should show category colors and should have a monthly view.
