  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Want YEAR VIEW calendar

    Please give me an YEAR VIEW calendar. I usually don't use the day-view calendar. I use only MONTH VIEW and YEAR VIEW. PLEASE MAKE YEAR-VIEW CALENDAR AS DEFAULT CALENDAR FOR ME.

    I use calendar mostly for finding which day (Sun/mon etc) of Which week (first or secon week etc) falls on which date. This helps me in pre-planning. I don't use automated reminders, rather I need pre-plan the multiple tasks based on available working days and holidays.

    So please give me year view calendar.

    Also I use calendar to COMPARE dates and days in different month and years (such as…

  5. Maximum number of people who can accept!

    Add a number limit of people who can accept, for meetings that are based on first come first served basis. A function that stops people accepting the invite once the maximum number is reached.

    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.

  8. Outlook Calendar RESTful API Create Event With Attendee Response Status as Accepted and Outlook Still Sends Invitation Email to Guests

    I'm a developer and my application handles event invitations and rsvp's and adds the events to all of the attendees calendars. When I POST the event to Outlook's RESTful Calendar API with all Attendees response status as accepted/declined, Outlook still sends an invite to guests to accept/rsvp. The organizer of the event's calendar shows that all have accepted, but the event on the guests' calendar doesn't show that anyone has accepted and are prompted to RSVP.

    Is there a better way to get around having invitations sent or accepting invites on behalf of attendees without invite emails being sent out?

  9. Sync iCloud Calendar to Outlook Calendar online

    I can sync the iCloud Calendar to Outlook 2016 by installing iCloud for Windows on my PC and checking Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks. But as you can see from the second screen shot, the iCloud Calendar appears only in Outlook 2016. You can see iCloud, ARLENE's iCloud Calendar checked in the left pane of the Calendar in Outlook 2016. In the left pane of Outlook Calendar online, you can see iCloud, but nothing else. My goal is to add calendar events in either iCloud Calendar, Outlook 2016 Calendar, or Outlook Calendar online and have them all sync without issue.

  10. Calendar colors mismatch

    The calendar colors between the Outlook on iOS and Outlook.com don't match. If I pick a color for a calendar in one, it's a completely different color on the other platform.

  12. have more contrast available for day-long out-of-office events. Right now, the colors are too light to show up.

  13. Notifications of a shared calendar

    the notifications of a shared calendar will only be received by the one who created it. Our team shares a calendar where we add time off and meetings, training etc. Although we all can add and delete entries from our shared calendar, I'm the only one who receives notifications because I created it. I hope you enhance this feature to allow the team to receive notifications or designate some one on the team, such as a manager to receive the notifications.

  14. Published Calendar displays more than 6 months in the future

    I would like the published Calendar from Outlook, when posted to a website, show more than 6 months in the future. With my business I often work 12 months in advance and no events or instabilities show more than 6 months in advance. Google Calendar of course will do that, but I have been trying to get all my work into my Outlook account and not use Google.

  15. INternal tabs for Calendar/Contact/task

    Like Yahoo is doing. Or like the Outlook client is doing as well It makes sense to have those services opened up right in Outlook.com instead of opening up a new browser tab

  16. Disable Flight/Hotel check In reminders

    Please disable (or require an opt-in functionality) to add flight, hotel, car rental and package delivery from your interface. I work in the airline industry and we get thousands of calls a month from customers asking why they got an email to check in (when they can't) because your email is sent outside of the check-in window. It is very confusing to customers because they think it is coming from the airline, hotel etc. I see there is a way to disable manually - but thinking this should not be the default. If this isn't valuable to customers - consider…

  17. Community Submissions to 'Interesting Calendars

    Interesting Calendars are a great idea, but they do not cover some of the local possibilities. in Ireland for example we have two very healthy sporting communities (Gaelic Football & Hurling) and i'm sure other countries have similar interests. it would be great to be able to make submissions for these to be added as interesting calendars if the info can be pulled form an official source.

  19. Calendar invites should let you specify From address

    If you have multiple aliases or connected accounts on your Outlook.com account, there is no way to send a Calendar invite out from those accounts. Currently the Primary account alias is always used, and the default From setting is ignored.
