  1. View All Appointments in Monthly Calendar View

    Hi, I'd like to be able to have the option to see everything I put on my Calendar at once instead of having to click each individual day while in Month view.

    Thanks.

  2. Agenda View with Handwriting

    Create a one-note like experience with an agenda view where one can use their surface pen to write in by hand their daily schedule, as well as any to-dos or tasks. For many people, "penciling in" their schedule is how they effectively learn and remember their routine, They are hesitant to go digital with their schedules, however, if there is an option to write it in, it is a lot more accessible to these people. Also, this kind of agenda use of windows 10 provides a new platform and need for small tablets for portability that you can write on.

  3. 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…

  7. Eliminate duplicate entries

    One major problem with calendars is that we have too many of them. Work, home, social organizations, other family members. Outlook.com allow us to see many of them together. GREAT. BUT several of them have the same event listed so you get something pretty ugly. I would like to suggest that Outlook.com could make some educated guess at combining the visual display of similar events from 2 calendars.
    similar words like "party", "soccer", "meeting", "dinner" with overlapping times could trigger the clutter reduction. Likely duplication could be shown as one event with an icon on the title bar showing that…

  9. 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

  10. Calendar Search

    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.

  12. Please add support for complications on the new Apple Watch 4 faces

    I would like to request that you add support for the new infograph modular watch face for Apple Watch 4. You currently support the regular modular watch faces. Also, if possible, please add support for the all the new inforgraph watch faces. It would be great to get my outlook calendar on as many watch faces as possible as my company does not allow our outlook work email to go thru the built in apple mail/calendar apps, which are available as a complications on almost every watch face.

    Thank you!

  13. Send response to calendar invite is mandatory

    Do not allow anyone to NOT send a response when they accept/decline a calendar invitation. This would ensure the meeting organizer always receives either an Accept or a Decline notification.

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to see multiple events in calendar

    May 2, 2016

    It would be nice if you were to see all of your additional events at a glance on the same date instead of the + sign and off to the side.

    Thank you,
    Ms. Barker

  17. 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!

  19. show daily items on the entire monthly like it was before, not just notification side bar

    I want the way the calendar looked before, if I clicked on more, it would list all the events for the day/week visually on the monthly calendar ... now it just opens that side notification for that day, that is not helpful at all. I need to look monthly at a week at a time, look ahead and see that I have 2-3 things planned for that day a week or two from now. Not a good change at all. Please change the monthly calendar space back to the size it was.

  20. 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.
