  1. Invasion of Privacy

    Stop assuming I can't keep track of my bills' due dates. I've only been doing it myself for over 50 years! I consider this an invasion of my privacy! You should NOT be reading my emails!

    • Add option to turn notifications off for calendar in shared mailbox

      We have a shared mailbox at work that trainers use to send out emails and invitations to training sessions from "Learning & Development." The training sessions and other similar events are on the shared calendar and I'm constantly getting notifications of those events that other people have set up and which I don't need to see. I do, however, want to continue to get reminders for events on my personal calendar, but it appears that there's no way to turn off reminders for the shared calendar but still leave them turned on for my personal calendar.

      From my Google searching…

      • When activating birthday calendar it should populate existing contacts

        Hello,
        Can we just quickly acknowledge the fact that the birthday calendar DOES NOT populdate birthdays for existing outlook contact BUT for existing skype contact.
        The calendar has exactly 1 task - go through the contact list - get all attributes birthday and add an entry in the calendar for this Firstname and Surname.
        Does it do this? How can something be so basic and not work with outlook. Google can just laugh at this with their superior contact/calendar management

        • Don't read my email

          I can't believe, no matter how well intentioned, that anyone thinks it is a good idea for Microsoft to read my email and automatically add events to my calendar. Wow, that smacks of big brother. At least you let me know about it, and showed how to shut it off, but wow, quit reading my email!

                • 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

                  • Out of office color contrast

                    The contrast in color when there is an all-day out of office event needs to be improved. It's almost impossible to see a difference.

                    • Interact with Text in Reminders Pane

                      When a meeting reminder pops up, some of the meeting information is shown at the top of the reminders pane. My company uses a meeting application, and the meeting ID is one of the pieces of information. Because I cannot copy this text, I have to either open the meeting or manually type in the ID. Any text I can see should always be 'copy-able'. Thanks

                        • 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.

                                    • I don't care about Mexican holidays. To insist I do is racist

                                      Stop putting Mexican holidays and events on my calendar. I don't celebrate nor care for any of them. You haven't even provided any option or tool to permanently delete them en mass by deleting the calendar you insisted I wanted. I'm not even in Mexico d&$>#it

                                      • Simply stop the automatic calendar entries, it’s ********. Telling me about start dates and end dates, it should be simply stop the notifica

                                        Simple switch off option allowing you to easily stop or switchboff Outlook automatically updating your calendar with events it thinks are important. I had to login to my live account, tried to switch off these nonsense and then prompted with some stupid start dates and end dates **** that I never filled in. Stop it, make it easier

                                          on Windows Phone, the calendar had a week display as well as a month display, The Android only shows 3 days at most. this is limiting . Please change the Android display to be able to show more than 3 days.
