  3. Allow custom scheduling for identical meetings but at various, non consistent dates and times.

    Provide an option when scheduling reoccurring meetings to occur at inconsistent dates and times...it would be a custom selection. Lotus Notes had that feature and it was a tremendous help.

  4. Calendar on outlook.com missing components that are present in android app.

    In Outlook.com calendar, creation options are limited to only name, location, time, date, repeat, and reminder. however the Android app also has people invite, description, privacy and this list is limited to what was available on the windows phone. This should be consistent across platforms. all platforms should have all options.

  5. Highlight today's date

    When I pull up the calendar, I want TODAY to POP out. A skinny little highlight at the top of the current day just wont' do it. Changing colors is little to no use.

  6. Issue with calander

    If you go to the year 9999, and then go to december, you will be sent to the error page with a callstack due to it trying to load dates in the year 10000, other months in the year 9999 its fine, and if you try go to the year 10000 it will just redirect you to the current date, but as dec 9999 is in bounds, it does not redirect, and then tries to load the first few days of jan 10000, causing the error to be thrown

  10. Month View Default Select

    Please change the auto default action when first selection the calendar from, creating an appointment to, simply selecting the calendar. Once appointment creation starts, I can't scroll up an down. This makes it difficult when quickly switching back and forth between windows to set up meetings. Especially when they may be months ahead of time. Additionally, when clicking around the calendar, every other time it will try to set up an appointment, and the other half just kindly select the day.

  14. Make it possible to edit the font for the date and the time in Outlook 2013 and later.

    Provide the ability to change the date and time font for Outlook calendar. The date heading font can be changed but not the date and time font. The user ends up with fonts that are out of proportion to each other.

  15. deleting other users calendar events

    I think the ability to delete calendar events of other users would be extremely helpful. At my company when a employee leaves, we have to add their mailbox to our own and then go in an delete the events and release the rooms and times. I think if there was an admin tool that allowed this to be done an easier way it would be a big time saver.

  17. Change behavior on Do not send response

    If you accept but do not send the affirmative response, it does not show up to the organizer with a green check that I am attending if they examine the attendees list. I should be allowed to accept a meeting without spamming the organizer and allow the organizer to know I'm attending. If going without revealing your intention is a concern for people, add an option to "Attend incognito" or something.

  18. Colour code individual items in recurring event

    Regarding the calendar and recurring events. Sunrise used to be able to individually colour code (Categorize) events that differ from the series. This functionality has been lost in Outlook.

    Are you able to reinstate it?

  19. The calender is terrible. I do not see anything on the mobile. A monthly view is nessecary. I would never use Outlook, if I would't have to.

    The calender is terrible. I do not see anything on the mobile. A monthly view is nessecary! I would never use Outlook, if I would't have to, as I share my calender with the family and they use Outlook.

  20. Adding other regional calendars and their format and language in a dropdown menu

    Please add suggestions for adding secondary calendar from the internet or the better make my regional calendar available from a dropdown menu please as a secondary calendar. Of course I don't mean a calendar just having holidays; I mean Iran's calendar (Persian/Jalaali Calendar) as I have in my Windows 10 Calendar App (the Microsoft one).

    Thank you in advance.
