  3. 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.

  4. Time Zone setting for Web Outlook Mail

    Time Zone Settings for Web Outlook Mail:

    When I use Web Outlook Mail for my emails and event schedules, there is no way to change the Time Zone of an event scheduled via email.

    Looking for an update. Thank you.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Add Support for Non-Gregorian Calendars

    It would be great if Outlook.com allowed users to display an alternate calendar on top of the standard Gregorian Calendar as is possible in the Microsoft Office Outlook application. Even better would be the ability to schedule recurring appointments on a non-Gregorian calendar.

    The specific example I'm thinking of is the Hebrew soli-lunar calendar, which would be useful for me (and likely for others) for keeping track of my relatives' Yahrzeits (anniversary of passing).

    I am sure that this feature would be greatly appreciated by users of other calendars (Arabic, Chinese, etc.) as well and would set Outlook.com apart from…

  8. Calendar times should check local system time

    The current calendar uses the server time zone. Not checking the system clock or IP time zone means as I travel all my meeting times around are off by different amounts and its up to me to do the mental math of figuring out what time my meeting is. I have to do mental math and constantly double check things because the most basic calendar function "what time is my meeting" is broken. Add to the fact that I'm based, when not traveling, three time zones away from our main office means that all my meeting times are always off…

  11. Integrating To Do Lists With The Calendar

    Hi There

    Just a couple of quick suggestions for you that I believe would make this much better and user friendly application:

    1 Please could you allow us to see both the calendar and tasks list on the same page. In addition would it be possible to create multiple tasks which can be viewed at the same time. E.G If you block out a time on your calendar for Making Calls you can look directly at your Calls To Do List and take relevant action. Having multiple To Do Lists displayed at the same time would make life even more…

  13. importing calendars

    Please can you bring back the import calendar facility it is no longer there or if it is I can't find it.
    Also this calendar no longer sync's with the windows 10 calendar which is really annoying particularly when you have 4 devices and have to individually update 2 different calendars on each device

  16. Set calendar for appointment

    Please give us the option to change the calendar an appointment is stored and also select the calendar where an appointment is added when an invitation is accepted.

    I use different calendars, some of them are shared, some not. When I receive a meeting invitation it is always added to my main calendar. And since the new beta version it is not even possible to change the calendar of a self created appointment.

  18. Darker Out of Office on Calendar

    I wish the out of office setting on the calendar was a much darker color to clearly show when out for the full day. Past versions of outlook had the calendar setting being much darker so it was easy to see outages, I wish it would be that clear again.
