  1. Allow users to export all calendar events as an ICS file, not just the last three months

    Currently if you try to export all events from the calendar to add them to another calendar or just have them as an ICS file only the last three months of events get exported.

    This isn't made clear anywhere in the support information for the calendar or in situ as you go through the process of making the calendar shared / the ICS file available at a link.

    I want to be able to have a copy of all of the events in my calendar going back to when I started using it (2011 or so), and there's no way…

  3. Multiple time slot support for meeting invites and selection and schedule of meeting based on response/selection

    Often meetings that are organized between two different organizations are done so by two Points of Contact who have visibility into the Calendars of the anticipated attendees, each respectively for their organizations.
    Often this requires an initial email thread which exists solely to identify an acceptable time between all attendees of the two (or multiple) entities. Of course support for multiple entities is much more complex and would need additional feedback loops and acceptance between 3 parties, so that is most likely out of scope for an initial implementation, and as such, I will reduce my description to a 2…

  4. Import .ics file and calendar

    I am using Outlook Beta and I understand that Outlook Beta currently does not allow the import of .ics files and calendars.

    Please implement this feature before making Outlook Beta live.

  6. Calendar on mobile month or just day in one view

    On my mobile the calendar only shows the day in hours. I would at least like to see the whole day in one view. I would also like to see a month calendar please.

  8. 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!

  9. Improvements in Calendar

    Hi team support,
    the new look of the Calendar application is excellent but when one tries to include some comments or notes about the appointment one doesn't have any place to do it. By other hand you don't have the possibility to include additional alerts using the email as we did it with the old one. In other words we have lost very interesting services in this new version.
    Please,consider to inclde them in the updates.

  10. Combine two calendars on the to do list

    Many Outlook users have multiple calendars. For instance, I have a social calendar that my wife and I share and a separate business calendar I use for myself. I am able to combine these two calendars in the calendar view, but unfortunately only my Outlook calendar shows up in my to do list. This makes that very important feature virtually useless. I can't imagine that your talented developers could not export the calendar feature, where the calendars are combined, to the to do list. I am certain the users would find this upgrade of tremendous usefullness.

  11. Change default canledar name, more functions

    1 Allow changing the name of default calendar.

    2 the time shown in front of each clander event is so untidy, 12p, 1p, 1:30p, what is this? this is not clean, neat and tidy at all!!!

    3 Layout and functions refer to Apple's clander, including drag and move a whole single event to another day. button position, symmetry, beautiful

    4 introduce Chinese calendar

  12. 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.

  13. Darker Out of Office on Calendar

    I wish the out of office setting on the calendar was a much darker color to clearly show when out for the full day. Past versions of outlook had the calendar setting being much darker so it was easy to see outages, I wish it would be that clear again.

  14. Agenda calendar view

    Google's Gmail calendar has a calendar view called 'Agenda'. It allows you to print your agenda in a list format. You can print your agenda for the current month, following month or whatever month you like. If the Outlook calendar people could copy this idea it would be great!

    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.

  16. Some of these programs interfere with the layout of the calendar in the monthly view

    I got a new computer, and the calendar worked fine. After installing Norton, Steam, Origin and the Office365 pack, the colours are now bugged. All events have coloured text and no background colour. As described and shown in this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook_com/forum/ocalendar-oaddtask/windows-10-calendar-month-view-changed-layout/e0dc25b8-2a29-4ba5-a68b-357e245a0069

  17. 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.
