  2. Enhancements to Published Calendar: iFrames, Colours, Custom Status, Granular Control is made visible

    Enhancements for Published calendar as its own webpage

    A few things:


    1. When publishing a calendar would be useful to have more granular control over what gets published. Currently you have 2 options. The first just shows the 'status' of various meetings (busy, free time, tentative, out of office etc), the second enables the viewer to see more information (meeting title, location, notes etc). I would be good to be able to check all various options and customise exactly what you want published. I for example want more info than just the status showing, but want things like the location, appointment…

  3. in Outlook.com calendar search, I would like to be able to press a button to go directly to that event in my calendar

    In Outlook.com calendar search, I would like to be able to press a button to go directly to that event in my calendar. I like how it displays the information, but sometimes I want to see the events surrounding it. Currently, I have to note the date, exit search and then go to the date, rather than clicking on a button taking me right there. Thanks

  4. Sync calendar colors in Outlook.com calendar with Windows 10 Calendar app and Outlook 2019

    Please make the color choices the same on the web, in the Windows 10 app and in Outlook 2019 and synchronize the chosen color across all these platforms, so I can remember the colors and know which calendar an event belongs to by its color wherever I view it.

  6. Community Submissions to 'Interesting Calendars

    Interesting Calendars are a great idea, but they do not cover some of the local possibilities. in Ireland for example we have two very healthy sporting communities (Gaelic Football & Hurling) and i'm sure other countries have similar interests. it would be great to be able to make submissions for these to be added as interesting calendars if the info can be pulled form an official source.

  7. Calendar has lost an enormous amount of functionality. No longer able to include other participants and not able to add email reminders

    Calendar events have become unbelievably simplistic in the beta. Why would you remove so much functionality? Please add back functionality to invite other participants and to send email reminders and multiple reminders to all participants.

  8. Fix holidays on calendar

    I checked the American holidays box, and I expected American holidays supporting American values.
    Presently I have Muslim holidays showing up, but no Christian, or Jewish holidays.
    I feel very strongly about this I have read the Koran and those people believe that we are infidels and should die. I do not want their holidays on my calendar. So please make an American holiday calendar. I’m not interested in Muslim holidays. I do not want their holidays on my calendar. So please make an American holiday calendar. I’m not interested in having holidays of people that want us dead!!!!

  9. calendar loose tasks list

    I wish you add a calendar option which allows you to add a separate task list which is not tied with any day in the calendar, just loose tasks list, it would allow to note tasks which are not executed for the last few weeks, days, months so the calendar syncro service does not erase them when the task has expired.

    I would also be glad if you could move more than one/ several tasks at one go.

    My system is Windows Mobile 8.
    Cheers,
    Slawek

  11. Keep historic calendar events

    ALL appointments to be kept on the calendars AFTER the event. Mine all disappear once the event has occurred. Therefore no history to refer back to.

  13. [Beta] - Dutch translation correction

    In the new (beta) calendar, the context menu to set your 'availability status' contains a wrong translation.
    I believe in English the menu will show 'Free' as first item.
    The Dutch translation now shows 'Gratis', which translates to 'Free' in the context of 'a free drink'. The correct translation should be something in the line of 'Beschikbaar' (translates to 'Available') or 'Vrij' (translates to 'Free' in the context of 'I am free this afternoon').

  16. Automatically update calendars to reflect deleted flights, etc., on my calendar and associated shared calendars

    When I change or delete an event that was automatically added to my calendar and to someone else's calendar, (such as a flight reservation), that event should be automatically deleted from my own calendar and from the other person's calendar.

  19. Calendar colors mismatch

    The calendar colors between the Outlook on iOS and Outlook.com don't match. If I pick a color for a calendar in one, it's a completely different color on the other platform.
