  2. Contrast for busy/OoO needs to be drastically increased for Outlook 2016, it makes scheduling meetings a NIGHTMARE.

    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.

  5. shared calendar outlook 2016

    Make an Oulook.com calendar shared to Outlook 2016 editable, since Outlook migrated to new servers this feature is gone and now all Outlook.com shared calendars appear as read-only in Outlook 2016. Hope we get this fixed soon as sharing a celendar is a basic feature in Outlook.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. Meeting acceptance emails

    Create a way for people invited to a meeting to accept or reject the meeting so that their choice shows up in Tracking without the meeting owner receiving an email. This is valuable if you send a meeting to large numbers of people and have size limits on your account - you need to track who is coming, but don't want dozens of email notifications.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Option to change work hours for irregular work schedule

    There should be an option to set working hours for irregular work schedules, i.e. work start time is afternoon/evening and work end time is the next morning. Currently, if you setup an irregular work schedule, you get an error that "the end date you entered occurs before the start date".

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Birthday calendar

    When the birthday calender is activated in the Settings of Outlook.com there are no birthday events generated for existing contacts. There should be the option to generate these events automatically for existing contacts.

    Wird der Geburtstagskalender auf Outlook.com in den Optionen aktiviert, werden keine Geburtstags-Termine für bestehende Kontakte erzeugt. Es sollte beim Aktivieren nachgefragt werden, ob man dies tun möchte.

  17. Editable Birthdays

    We should be able to edit and/or delete individual entries on the birthday calendar.

    From duplicate entries due to linking with other accounts (eg. LinkedIn), to acquaintances whose birthdays you don't want/need to know, to people whose age defaults to '100'... there are many reasons why the birthday calendar is much more nuisance than help. This could be fixed by allowing us to edit (eg. d/o/b so the correct age comes up) and delete (eg. relative strangers; duplicate entires).

  18. Send response to calendar invite is mandatory

    Do not allow anyone to NOT send a response when they accept/decline a calendar invitation. This would ensure the meeting organizer always receives either an Accept or a Decline notification.

  20. To-Do bar

    The ability to remove an item (such as a cancelled meeting) in the To-Do bar DIRECTLY from the To-Do Bar, without having to open the item. Maybe right click to have a remove option pop up.
