    • Please add support for complications on the new Apple Watch 4 faces

      I would like to request that you add support for the new infograph modular watch face for Apple Watch 4. You currently support the regular modular watch faces. Also, if possible, please add support for the all the new inforgraph watch faces. It would be great to get my outlook calendar on as many watch faces as possible as my company does not allow our outlook work email to go thru the built in apple mail/calendar apps, which are available as a complications on almost every watch face.

      Thank you!

      • Adding Skpe Meeting to New Outlook Calendar - Online Version (Not Desktop App)

        I can add a skype meeting/phone with the old version of calendar on the desktop app. However, I am trying to get used to the online mail and calendar. When I click my calendar and create a new event, I do not see the option to add a Skype phone. How do I do this?

        I am on a mac.

        Thank you.

          • Invite Attendees wont accept email address with o'apostrophe

            When inviting attendees to new event, Outlook Calendar now won't accept email address with apostrophe eg in format "john.o'smith@agency.gov.xx" (generates error box "One or more attendees have invalid email addresses"), even though same email address is used to send emails and even forward received calendar events. This is a new development. Outlook used to let me invite to this (same) address - now just get error - is there any setting in Outlook Calendar to fix this incorrect error/block ??

            • email Reminders to appointments/meetings set in the Caledar are no longer available

              Old versions of Outlook had this ability, but the new beta only allows Pop-Up reminders. Email reminders should still be an option as I have found they are noticed more by users and participants of meetings set up in Calendar. Bring the option back!

              • 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.

                    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.

                    • Multi Calendar sync like google's selectsync to help sync with native android

                      I have talked with Microsoft support and Outlook App for Android Support and they both say that I need to report this issue of not all calendars being available from outlook account to Outlook.com. Google's selectsync allows mutliple google calendars from one google account to be symchronised with third party applications like Calendar UWP for Windows 10. Why are not all my Outlook Calendars from my one Outlook account not showing up in native android sync???

                            • Issues with Opening and Moving a Calendar from Directory

                              The option to either create a "New Calendar" or "Discover Calendars" is hidden under a calendar group that I created, not the default group that comes with your Outlook account. It was more difficult to find out where this feature lived when I first switched to the new outlook view. When I open a calendar from my directory, it adds that person's calendar to the "People's Calendars" group; but I cannot move that calendar to any other calendar group once it has been added. Can we get the ability to right-click a group and add a person from a directory…

                              • Calendar notification problem

                                Hi Experts,

                                I have a big problem using outlook calendar.

                                There was a meeting invited from other group, sent to my boss and me.
                                I could not not accept the event right away, as I have to see if my boss is able to attend it or not. Then, he accepted the event, while I had no notification (of course he is angry when I ask him about the meeting)

                                So how do I get notification through email in that case? (setting instruction please?)

                                Also, how I get EMAIL notification for any change/update in the calendar that has my email…

                                • Set fixed time zone in Outlook app

                                  Time zone in the Outlook app on iPhone takes the time zone you currently are in, even though time zone override is set on iPhone and another time zone is selected in outlook.com webmail. It would be nice to have same time zone as settings i.e. from outlook.com webmail.

                                        • Issue with calander

                                          If you go to the year 9999, and then go to december, you will be sent to the error page with a callstack due to it trying to load dates in the year 10000, other months in the year 9999 its fine, and if you try go to the year 10000 it will just redirect you to the current date, but as dec 9999 is in bounds, it does not redirect, and then tries to load the first few days of jan 10000, causing the error to be thrown
