  1. Integrate a task management (todo-list) system that is worth using!

    Currently, Microsoft (at least) has four different tasks/todo systems, and they are all half-baked. I would like to see Outlook.com combining all of them into a well-arranged view.

    1) Tasks from the Outlook.com Calendar. Simple, straight forward tasks, with no form of grouping or list-building.

    2) Tasks Cortana creates for me, including person-depending and location-depending reminders. Would nice to have a place where I can see, add and edit them. Especially when Windows 10 is here.

    3) Flagged Emails: After flagging a number of mails, I can't see all of them anymore on the top. It would be nice if…

    Thanks for the detailed feedback and comments on this. Like you’ve noted we, as a company, have put work into tasks and task management before and it is an area we continue to give thought to as there is still improvement to make. I will pass this feedback and the comments on to the right folks for more consideration. If I can share anything substantive back, I will. Thanks again for the feedback and engagement.

  2. out of office color too faint

    Hello Microsoft,
    When creating an all day out of office event in Outlook 2016, it is very difficult to change the shading to make it as noticeable as it was in previous versions of Outlook. Is there any way to make the distinction stronger by default or give end users a way of customizing this? Thanks!

  3. Create Calendar items from emails

    Allow users to highlight text from an email message and create a calendar item with that information already populated into the 'description' of the event.

    For example, someone sends you an address or directions to an event. Highlight that information from the email, click on a button or option and create a calendar event that has that information copied into the description already.

    This is coming in the new version of Outlook.com. If you don’t already see it, you should soon see “Reply all by meeting” in the drop-down menu next to “Reply” when you click on a specific email. Hope that fits your needs. Thanks for the feedback.

  4. Bing map integration for the location field in calendar.

    This functionality would allow a user to add addresses from bing maps directly into an appointments and launch navigation to the destination from the calendar. A similar experience can currently be found in iCloud calendar.

  5. Add entries to birthday calendar without creating a contact

    Currently, if you add a new entry to the Birthday Calendar, it will create a contact record. You should have the ability to create birthday's on that calendar without the contact record. Pets, babies, etc... are 'people' I don't need clogging up my contact list, but their birthdays are important.

    Thank you for the feedback. We’re working on improving the overall experience with birthday calendar and daily agenda mail to make it more personal and relevant. If you prefer not to receive your agenda in mail, you can opt out by going to Outlook.com > Settings > Calendar > Agenda mail.

  10. Agenda calendar view

    Google's Gmail calendar has a calendar view called 'Agenda'. It allows you to print your agenda in a list format. You can print your agenda for the current month, following month or whatever month you like. If the Outlook calendar people could copy this idea it would be great!

  12. Calendar colours

    Please add in more colour choices for calendar. And make them streamlined with the Outlook.com app for iOS and Android. It gets confusing when the app updates and the colours go haywire! Otherwise, it looks great!

  14. Create a calendar with email reminders by default

    Allow me to create a new calendar where all appointments have "remind me by email" set as default. This way I can trust that import items will always arrive in my inbox for processing, and not be lost on a desktop somewhere back at the office or at home.

  15. Create Meeting from Email

    Maybe I am missing this, but I find it annoying when scheduling appointments online for my boss that I have to open two windows to see the date/time of the meeting in the email and then have to schedule on the calendar view. Is there any easier way to get back and forth between two or have a way that you can click the information to create a new appointment?

    This functionality is coming soon in the new outlook.com UI. If you don’t already see it in the drop-down menu you access by clicking the down arrow next to “reply” when you’ve clicked on an email then you should see it soon.

  16. sync. with google calendar

  18. Multiple Calendars In Peek / To-Do Bar (Outlook 365)

    Bring back the ability to view multiple calendars and/or other calendars (ie. Shared Calendars) in the To-Do Bar (View/To-Do Bar/Calendar) of Outlook 365.

    Not everyone uses the default outlook calendar, and many people have separate business (outlook) and personal (Gmail) calendars that they like to see as one in the side bar.

    You allow us to see all our calendars in the "Calendar", but not in the To-Do Bar when we "dock to peek".

  19. Be able to send yourself on email notification about an appointment.

    In the old version of outlook.com calendar you could send your self an email notification of an appointment. In the new beta version of outlook.com calendar there is no way to send yourself an email notification. Why did this feature go away? I liked to send myself email notifications, then delete them as I had the appointment. Please re-new this feature.

  20. View All Appointments in Monthly Calendar View

    Hi, I'd like to be able to have the option to see everything I put on my Calendar at once instead of having to click each individual day while in Month view.

    Thanks.
