  1. Personalize Calendar Reminder

    无法自定义提醒的提前时间,只能选择“5分钟”,“10分钟”等等,无法选择如“8分钟”的提醒时间。
    I cannot personalize the reminder. The choices are "5 min", "10 min", etc. But sometimes I need a reminder like "8 min".

  2. Invite Attendees wont accept email address with o'apostrophe

    When inviting attendees to new event, Outlook Calendar now won't accept email address with apostrophe eg in format "john.o'smith@agency.gov.xx" (generates error box "One or more attendees have invalid email addresses"), even though same email address is used to send emails and even forward received calendar events. This is a new development. Outlook used to let me invite to this (same) address - now just get error - is there any setting in Outlook Calendar to fix this incorrect error/block ??

  3. Booking meeting rooms for recurring meeting

    When I today book a recurring meeting and book them for each week/month and try to book a meeting room (a resource) at the same time I get a reject of the all the meeting from the meeting room if there is just a single conflict. And then I have to look on the reject and do a lot of manual work to book a meeting room.
    It will be much better if it somehow was possible to change this so that I get an accept from the meeting room (from the resource) those dates which are OK and a…

    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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Automatically import .ics files

    Example:
    I book a flight and the airline sends me an email with the ticket and 2 .ics files for the flights.
    In Gmail, I simply click on the .ics files to add them to my Google calendar.

    In Outlook.com I have to download the .ics files, go to my Live calendar, click on import and manually add all the files.

    Isn't there an easier way to do it? Why can't it be automatic like in Gmail?

  10. Editable Birthdays

    We should be able to edit and/or delete individual entries on the birthday calendar.

    From duplicate entries due to linking with other accounts (eg. LinkedIn), to acquaintances whose birthdays you don't want/need to know, to people whose age defaults to '100'... there are many reasons why the birthday calendar is much more nuisance than help. This could be fixed by allowing us to edit (eg. d/o/b so the correct age comes up) and delete (eg. relative strangers; duplicate entires).

  11. Signs by tasks in todo list - impossible to remove

    After updating of Tasks (TODO list), each of my task has a sign (flag). When I am trying to remove the sign (by the task) and I click directly on the flag, the task is signed as DONE and disappears.

  12. Birthday calendar

    When the birthday calender is activated in the Settings of Outlook.com there are no birthday events generated for existing contacts. There should be the option to generate these events automatically for existing contacts.

    Wird der Geburtstagskalender auf Outlook.com in den Optionen aktiviert, werden keine Geburtstags-Termine für bestehende Kontakte erzeugt. Es sollte beim Aktivieren nachgefragt werden, ob man dies tun möchte.

  15. iCloud Calendar and Outlook Calendar Sync

    There should be some way to integrate my iCloud calendars and my Outlook calendar. I've been speaking to your customer support for the last month trying to solve this issue. My Calendars app won't sync to my Outlook iOS app. That is, events created in the apple calendar app (whether on desktop or mobile app) won't show up on any of my Outlook calendars. I can add Google calendars, so why not iCalendars?

  17. Import Google Calendar

    All of my educational and work calendars are currently managed using Google Calendar. This is just what all of my current organizations and companies use. I would like to be able to import all of these calendars into Outlook using the iCal format so that I can manage all of my email accounts and calendars in one app.

  18. 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.

    Please fix issue with Outlook.com converting Appointments into Meetings. Issue arises when Appointments are edited using iPhone or Android phone. When the edited Appointment syncs with Outlook.com, it is converted into a Meeting. The issue began after recent update of Outlook.
