  1. status

    It would be nice if there was an option (like the available, busy, out of office, and tentative options) to mark the calendar and your status as "Working from Home" or "Remote." In my office, lots of people work from home with various schedules, so it would be nice if there was an easy way to check that information without having to individually ask each person.

  2. Enable calendar personalisation

    Please make the default personal calendar re-namable (eg user's name); when multiple calendars are created, this is confusing and a source for errors. Thanks

  3. Flexible time entry in calendar appointment details window

    The new calendar is nice but typing in times is restrictive -- I have to type "12:45 PM", and nothing else is recognized. Instead, recognize these:
    2p = 2 PM
    1245 = 12:45 PM (take your best guess if the hour is ambiguous AM/PM)
    13 = 1 PM
    6am = 6:00 AM
    0730 = 7:30 AM
    15:00 = 3:00 PM
    7.45 = 7:45 AM
    Also, if I enter a time incorrectly and press Enter, the time entry box gets reset to its previous value. I think I've entered a new time but the appointment stays at the same time. Offer…

  4. Time Zone setting for Web Outlook Mail

    Time Zone Settings for Web Outlook Mail:

    When I use Web Outlook Mail for my emails and event schedules, there is no way to change the Time Zone of an event scheduled via email.

    Looking for an update. Thank you.

  5. Ability to see multiple events in calendar

    May 2, 2016

    It would be nice if you were to see all of your additional events at a glance on the same date instead of the + sign and off to the side.

    Thank you,
    Ms. Barker

  8. calendar icloud

    I would like to be able to sync to/from and use iCloud calendars from inside outlook.com. I can do this from the Outlook Desktop Client now, but still cannot from the web client. I use the web client frequently and would like to see this integrated into the web client as well.

  9. Enable change of 'save to calendar' after event has been saved

    Make it possible to change to which calendar an event is assigned after it has been saved. Currently this part is greyed out once the item has been saved meaning that it needs deleting and recreating if I want to change it to a different calendar.

  10. Set default calendar by activating it

    When activating a secondary calendar by clicking on it in the bar right above the main calendar view (the calendar name becomes bold) new events should be created in that calendar by default.

  11. Create a calendar with email reminders by default

    Allow me to create a new calendar where all appointments have "remind me by email" set as default. This way I can trust that import items will always arrive in my inbox for processing, and not be lost on a desktop somewhere back at the office or at home.

  13. Integrating To Do Lists With The Calendar

    Hi There

    Just a couple of quick suggestions for you that I believe would make this much better and user friendly application:

    1 Please could you allow us to see both the calendar and tasks list on the same page. In addition would it be possible to create multiple tasks which can be viewed at the same time. E.G If you block out a time on your calendar for Making Calls you can look directly at your Calls To Do List and take relevant action. Having multiple To Do Lists displayed at the same time would make life even more…

  14. FYI Meeting Attendees

    Here's a feature I've always wanted. I'd like to be able to create a meeting or be added to a meeting, but I'd like it to not be shown as busy on my schedule. Sometimes, I'd like to let my boss or wife know about meetings and appointments which they will not attend. Sometimes, I arrange appointments and meetings for others which I will not attend. It's great to have it on my calendar so I know that my wife is at the doctor right now or let her know that I'm driving the kids to lacrosse, but I don't…

  17. Copy and paste events for recurrent named events, eg. shifts

    Really annoying for people doing shift work to put in kind of shift repetitively with time included. Very very time consuming. For example, one of my shifts is "clinic day" and runs 08:30-16:00, but will be different days every week. So to be able to right click an entry in the calendar and having a copy and past function would be very useful.

  18. Signs by tasks in todo list - impossible to remove

    After updating of Tasks (TODO list), each of my task has a sign (flag). When I am trying to remove the sign (by the task) and I click directly on the flag, the task is signed as DONE and disappears.
