  1. 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 ??

  3. In 'week' or 'working week' view, need a setting to 'grey out' days in the past.

    When viewing in 'week' or 'working week' view, a setting to 'grey out' (or alternative colour) the days in the past would make it easier to look at the screen and spot which is the current day. The line across the screen at the current time is helpful but a different colour or shade for the past days would be an equivalent divide for the past/present days and would be more useful too.

  4. recovering accidentally deleted calendar items

    A calendar item is easily accidentally removed. Can you make a folder with deleted items so we can put them back if needed. A right mouse click could do the job.
    Same time, changed appointments are stored in the same folder in their original settings so we can recover them too. Specially when using apples calendar the time of an appointment is so easily changed.

  5. Please allow MS Outlook to use Bikram Sambat Calendar

    I am from nepal and we use Bikram Sambat as our official calendar for all purpose. Thus it would be great if you could add Bikram Sambat Calendar option.

  7. 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!

  10. 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…

  11. Allow Editing of Categories of One Instance of a Recurring Event

    Please allow me to edit the category of one instance of a recurring event. I manage multiple people's schedules, and if one has to fill in for another it'd be nice to not have to delete the recurring event and make a new version of it just to change the color it shows up in on my calendar.

  12. The calendar is in day view (on an Android phone). I can't find a way to change to week or month view. Is this possible?

  13. Sync calendar colors in Outlook.com calendar with Windows 10 Calendar app and Outlook 2019

    Please make the color choices the same on the web, in the Windows 10 app and in Outlook 2019 and synchronize the chosen color across all these platforms, so I can remember the colors and know which calendar an event belongs to by its color wherever I view it.

  14. Bookings location

    Can the appointments made in the Bookings app allow users to set a specific location? I travel to the client, so it would be super helpful to have the location of the appointment show up in the location field of the calendar appointment.

  15. In the calendar week view, I would like to be able to customize the view so that I can see the entire day. Currently I can only see 5 hours

    Provide for a custom view of the calendar, so that if I want to view a whole week across and the entire day down. I hate having to scroll up and down just to check and see if I have any open slots. Before the last revision that type of view was available and I really, really miss it.

  18. need more than 10 week option on reminders of re occurring appointments

    I use outlook calendar to remind me to order tablets. They are supplied in 12 week batches and the calendar will only allow 10 week intervals.
    I have previous reminders set for longer so this must have been changed.

    Please give user defined week/day/month/year value
