Allow users to disable default charms in calendar events
I use only the browser version of the calendar on outlook.com. I hate the charm icons that automatically appear next to appointments and events that I create or edit in my browser calendar.
For example, a cake charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "birthday", or a knife and fork charm automatically appears when the event contains the word "lunch". These charms add visual clutter and take up valuable space. I find them silly, useless, often irrelevant to my event, and a nuisance. By making the charms a "default" feature, Microsoft assumes all users need or want such decorations in a business tool.
I often don't notice these charms until I've saved the event and it's on my calendar. Then I'm forced to reopen the event for editing to remove the undesired charm. I prefer a minimalist look to my calendar entries, and I resent the program's automatically adding these charms to my entries. It is very frustrating and a waste of time to constantly have to reopen and edit events to remove unwanted charms. The default should be NO automatic charms, and users should be allowed to add charms on their own, as desired.
If the "charm default" cannot be removed altogether, please allow users to DISABLE this default at will.
110% agree. Give me control, I know what I'm doing. If I didn't I'd be using a MAC.
