  1. Allow Start/stop times in custom HOL code

    It is a lot easier for me to create one custom HOL file for a huge list of various departmental meetings but we need the start/stop times. If that could be added to the syntax of the custom HOL text that would be FABULOUS!!

  2. Calendar - auto event adding

    I like my itinerary is added automatically to my Calendar, but my calendar's meeting is buried with itinerarysince I am a travel manager. Can I choose which calendar to add certain events? In this case, I made Travel Calendar to only capture itinerarybut it does not seem to be working.

  3. Pop-out calendar appointments

    I am an Administrative Assistant. Sometimes, I'll be in the middle of trying to identify a meeting time for a large group in calendar, when I get interrupted by the phone or someone coming to my office for a "quick" question. Currently, I am able to open a new browsing tab, navigate to Outlook.com on the new tab, and open my calendar, but sometimes the new window doesn't allow me to access all of the calendar information (it won't let me open an appointment to read the details, for instance). If I want to be able to access the detailed…

  4. No invitation please!

    PLEASE let users block invitations or turn off receiving invitations automatically. Users have the right to refuse getting unwanted invitations! I am using Outlook at my work. But I do not want to use it due to such an annyoing tool.

  6. The language setting is not applied to the holiday calendars

    My outlook is in Traditional Chinese except for the holiday calendars.
    I recently re-merge the outlook app and found out the "Hong Kong Holiday" is in simplified Chinese, which is not a language used in Hong Kong. Further more, If I subscript to holiday calendar of another country, it is also shown in simplified calendar.

    It may seem fine if French (Canada) be replaced with French (France), but think of Greek, Arabic or Mongolian language, but in Latin alphabets. As a Hong Konger, I would personally be ok with Chinese (Taiwan) as it is also in Traditional Chinese script, but…

  7. Enhance calender views

    Hey there, thanks for the great work overall! Few things would be wonderful to have in addition:
    - Possibiliy to fit calendar to screen regardless of hour intervals selected in options
    -same views like web app or desktop app in outlook mobile app (e.g. week, month, again with mentioned fit to screen option)
    - synchronisation of used calendar/appointment colors and charms (I have had different colors in outlook for desktop, outlook web app and outlook andoid app)
    -more automatic charms for typical occasions, which are created while typing (for example: Visit, Family, Birthday, Reading, etc.), and - as mentioned above…

  8. Option to only use the calendar portion of Outlook for android and turn off email.

    When using Outlook on my Android phone, I only want to use my calendar. I don't want to receive emails on my cell phone. I would like to see an option to not receive emails but continue to get notifications from my calendar of appointments.

  10. It would be great if "Tasks" showed up on the Outlook calendar!

    It would really be helpful if Tasks showed up on the calendar like appointments.

  11. Event link to contact

    Most event events have something to do with someone or a company/business already in your contact list. I don't want to send them an email from the notify or reminder field. However, when entering an event in the EVENT FIELD, why should I have to type the person's or company's name, location and phone number in blindly when it is ALREADY in my CONTACT list. It is a waste of time both in Outlook Live and Outlook OFFICE365. I either have to GOOGLE their address or look them up in my contacts first, write down the info, then key the…

  12. Unwanted inserts on my e-mails

    Please don't just add your ideas automatically.
    These pop ups on e-mails are aggravating.
    Why don't you just have settings so people can choose which pop ups and add-ons they require?
    One of your pop ups for a google calendar entry caused me great distress. It wanted to add a flight I had booked to MY calendar - when I had booked it for someone else. Also the flight information on your purple notification was for the wrong airport and I though I had incorrectly booked the flight!!!
    If you must put these inserts into people's e-mails please get the…

  13. Alert for the end of a meeting to make sure you finish on time.

    It would be really helpful if you could set an alert for the approaching end of a meeting. It would help you, and meeting rooms, keep to time.

  14. Disable the email notifications that are sent with a new appointment added, or update on a shared calendar.

    I wish there was a way to disable the notifications sent with new or updated appointments on shared calenders. We use our shared calendar for patient appointments and EVERY time there is a change or update we all get another email. It would be nice to disable that notification.

  15. Auto-functional calendar

    With account owners permission, specific e-mail originators could automatically enter info on owners calendar -- so as owner simply need look at calendar for information. This would work marvelously for direct mail marketing, I.E. beginning of sales, event times, work schedules, etc

  16. Calendar view edit for Android

    Looking through the events in my outlook calendar on an Android device, and cant find a 'list' of events. If you select birthday calendar for example, you have to scroll through your agenda view, day by day. There doest seem to be any highlights in the down calendar view. I'm thinking there should be an easier way to select dates and events, so we can delete or update re-occuring days.
