  1. 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.

        • 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.

            • Calendat

              Hello. I email my work calendar to Hotmail. I then add it. Rather than reflecting only that version of the calendar it adds things that were not in the Hotmail calendar. So things that have been deleted in my work calendar may stay in my Hotmail calendar. Ideally each time I I would like the contents replaced by the new calendar contents or all items in the calendar deleted before adding the new calendar. How do I do this?

              • 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

                • No Ability to Delete Unwanted Calendars on Outlook.com

                  The options list (under gear symbol) does not have a provision for deleting unwanted user created Outlook.com calendars. I can delete from Outlook 2016, but they keep coming back because I cannot delete from Outlook.com Calendar. Is there a hidden command? Or is it not possible. If not, please provide one!

                  • Calendar display

                    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.

                    • Improvements in Calendar

                      Hi team support,
                      the new look of the Calendar application is excellent but when one tries to include some comments or notes about the appointment one doesn't have any place to do it. By other hand you don't have the possibility to include additional alerts using the email as we did it with the old one. In other words we have lost very interesting services in this new version.
                      Please,consider to inclde them in the updates.

                      • Combine two calendars on the to do list

                        Many Outlook users have multiple calendars. For instance, I have a social calendar that my wife and I share and a separate business calendar I use for myself. I am able to combine these two calendars in the calendar view, but unfortunately only my Outlook calendar shows up in my to do list. This makes that very important feature virtually useless. I can't imagine that your talented developers could not export the calendar feature, where the calendars are combined, to the to do list. I am certain the users would find this upgrade of tremendous usefullness.

                          We need an option to create a much needed "custom pattern" for recurring events in Outlook Calendar - used to have this, now its gone!

                          • Amending information inside diary invites without the whole lot resending

                            I would like to be able to amend a message in a diary invite without the whole invite re-sending, but I still want others to see it when they click inside the appointment. e.g. small details such as change of room (when it's sent ages in advance), if people are using the body of the message to record apologies - I don't want to receive emails every time someone else gives their apologies. Or if the telephone number changes. etc. it's an unnecessary inbox filler!

                            • Multiple templates for a new meeting request

                              It would be helpful to set different templates when you create a meeting. e.g. for people managing room bookings they might want to autoset things like: name of person requesting room, catering requests, layout. Whereas someone sending out a normal meeting request might want to say: meeting title, parking info, meeting objectives .

                              • Managing apologies

                                Meetings that apologies are sent to – would be good if these can be ‘hidden’ with the option to view if needs be. E.g. create a new option which would be 'decline - send apologies' - this would send an automatic pre-populated message (please accept my apologies). Then on the person's calendar all meetings where this has happened becomes a translucent grey (or other colour) in the diary which can be toggled on/off and would say - apologies sent to [insert meeting title]. If the meeting changes - updates would still be sent through so if the diary plans change…

                                      • Decline but keep in calendar

                                        An option to decline an invitation but keep it in the calendar (eg in case things change and you can attend etc)
