  2. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  8. 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 ??

  10. 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.

  12. Stop Outlook.com From Converting Appointments into Meetings

    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.

  13. 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.

  14. Tie into MS Office Outlook calendars

    I have used Outlook desktop for years with my MS Office. I heavily use the calendar in Outlook for all my scheduling. I would like to see Outlook.com tie in not only my email from my POP server, but also my calendar from my desktop Outlook. It is already tied to my MS account, so it should be easy enough to link. Then any update done on my desktop calendar is automatically transferred to my Outlook.com calendar.

  15. Turn off calendars

    One thing I hate so much about having a gmail account is that they force you to use google calendar. By contrast using my hotmail email I can turn off the birthday calendar and opt to not receive notifications from other event calendar like things. If you went out of your way to provide an option for this email service to never notify you or email about anything I'd certainly appreciate it, and a quick google search of "Google calendar sucks" would prove that many others would agree. I bring this up because today I received an email from myself…

  16. Enable change of 'save to calendar' after event has been saved

    Make it possible to change to which calendar an event is assigned after it has been saved. Currently this part is greyed out once the item has been saved meaning that it needs deleting and recreating if I want to change it to a different calendar.

  18. calendar display options - agenda, next # weeks, etc.

    1) DISPLAY OPTIONS

    Please bring back the option (from Hotmail?) to display as agenda.

    Add option for "next __ weeks". One-month calendars (especially those spanning 6 weeks) display only 1-3 items per day--extremely limiting. Extra pop-up on the side does not replace what used to be the expanded size of window in the actual calendar.

    2) Cancelling recurring events is awkward, especially if already started...please improve. Should also be an option to "cancel further occurences"...thereby saving the events up to that date.
