  2. Sync iCloud Calendar to Outlook Calendar online

    I can sync the iCloud Calendar to Outlook 2016 by installing iCloud for Windows on my PC and checking Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks. But as you can see from the second screen shot, the iCloud Calendar appears only in Outlook 2016. You can see iCloud, ARLENE's iCloud Calendar checked in the left pane of the Calendar in Outlook 2016. In the left pane of Outlook Calendar online, you can see iCloud, but nothing else. My goal is to add calendar events in either iCloud Calendar, Outlook 2016 Calendar, or Outlook Calendar online and have them all sync without issue.

  3. Published Calendar displays more than 6 months in the future

    I would like the published Calendar from Outlook, when posted to a website, show more than 6 months in the future. With my business I often work 12 months in advance and no events or instabilities show more than 6 months in advance. Google Calendar of course will do that, but I have been trying to get all my work into my Outlook account and not use Google.

  4. INternal tabs for Calendar/Contact/task

    Like Yahoo is doing. Or like the Outlook client is doing as well It makes sense to have those services opened up right in Outlook.com instead of opening up a new browser tab

  5. Disable Flight/Hotel check In reminders

    Please disable (or require an opt-in functionality) to add flight, hotel, car rental and package delivery from your interface. I work in the airline industry and we get thousands of calls a month from customers asking why they got an email to check in (when they can't) because your email is sent outside of the check-in window. It is very confusing to customers because they think it is coming from the airline, hotel etc. I see there is a way to disable manually - but thinking this should not be the default. If this isn't valuable to customers - consider…

  7. Calendar invites should let you specify From address

    If you have multiple aliases or connected accounts on your Outlook.com account, there is no way to send a Calendar invite out from those accounts. Currently the Primary account alias is always used, and the default From setting is ignored.

  8. Automatically update calendars to reflect deleted flights, etc., on my calendar and associated shared calendars

    When I change or delete an event that was automatically added to my calendar and to someone else's calendar, (such as a flight reservation), that event should be automatically deleted from my own calendar and from the other person's calendar.

  9. Ability to edit/delete Facebook®-sourced events like birthdays from Live® Calendar

    Why am I still receiving emails of Birthday reminders imported from the Facebook® data if no secondary calendar "exists." Why is it still punctually sending me reminders about everyone's birthday who was my Facebook® friend at the time?

    Thank you for the feedback. We’re working on improving the overall experience with birthday calendar and daily agenda mail to make it more personal and relevant. If you prefer not to receive your agenda in mail, you can opt out by going to Outlook.com > Settings > Calendar > Agenda mail.

  11. tasks in outlook.com

    Yesterday my Outlook.com site was upgraded.
    Now, it's not possible anymore to add new tasks (or view tasks, in general). Please, add this feature again.

  14. Calendar colours

    Please add in more colour choices for calendar. And make them streamlined with the Outlook.com app for iOS and Android. It gets confusing when the app updates and the colours go haywire! Otherwise, it looks great!

  15. Outlook calendar scheduling

    Why it is not possible to change the scheduling view from hours view into days view. I think it would be usefull to have a scheduling view including several days of a week or of a month on one screen just to be able plan long term project staff. Currently you just can see only one day (60 minit, 30 minit split...) Cheers!

  16. Monthly calendar view

    I frequently use a monthly view when I review my calendar. On the old "hotmail" calendar, if there was a day when I had more events than shown in the monthly view (more than the 2-3 rows allowable), I could click on the "3+more" or "4+more" button on the bottom of that day and it would expand the rows in the monthly calendar to view them. Now, on this new calendar, there is a "+3" or "+4" at the bottom of the day, but it does not expand the rows for that day/week. Thus, I can't get a good view…

  17. PLEASE add an option for me to select my own time for reminders. EX: Meeting reminders for my outlook come in intervals of 5 min. Well 5 m

    PLEASE add an OPTION for me to select my own time for reminders or a 2 minute option (something shorter than 5 min). EX: Meeting reminders for my outlook come in intervals of 5 min. Well 5 min is too long and at time of event is too short. 2 min is perfect because it allows you to get logged into your meetings and not have time for someone to interrupt you and forget within 5 minutes.

  18. Calender View multiple weeks

    Hello,
    currently Outlook offers 5 different standard view in calender (day, working week, week, month, planning view). I'm often using a view of 2-4 weeks in my calender, by marking manually multiple weeks in the menu bar. How can I define a default calender view with an own defined time range? It seems this is just not possible.

  19. Calendar Search

    I would find it very helpful if there was a search facility in Outlook Calendar as I have calendar entries going back 20 years and would like to be able to quickly find a historical entry via a key word.

  20. View All Appointments in Monthly Calendar View

    Hi, I'd like to be able to have the option to see everything I put on my Calendar at once instead of having to click each individual day while in Month view.

    Thanks.
