  1. Put task next to Calendar

    I found it's not so convenient to separate Task from Calendar. Normally, when ppl write down their tasks, they also need to look at their agenda to know whether the deadline they give to themselves are proper or not, and so is to the task priority ....

  2. Delete the Birthday calendar

    Hi. I want to be able to delete the whole birthday calendar completely. I also want to be able to delete contacts fully. I deleted a load and I still see them on my list. I do not want them there.

  3. Integrate a task management (todo-list) system that is worth using!

    Currently, Microsoft (at least) has four different tasks/todo systems, and they are all half-baked. I would like to see Outlook.com combining all of them into a well-arranged view.

    1) Tasks from the Outlook.com Calendar. Simple, straight forward tasks, with no form of grouping or list-building.

    2) Tasks Cortana creates for me, including person-depending and location-depending reminders. Would nice to have a place where I can see, add and edit them. Especially when Windows 10 is here.

    3) Flagged Emails: After flagging a number of mails, I can't see all of them anymore on the top. It would be nice if…

    Thanks for the detailed feedback and comments on this. Like you’ve noted we, as a company, have put work into tasks and task management before and it is an area we continue to give thought to as there is still improvement to make. I will pass this feedback and the comments on to the right folks for more consideration. If I can share anything substantive back, I will. Thanks again for the feedback and engagement.

  4. Recurring event in every second and fourth week based on first full week in month

    Hi!
    I need to create a recurring event on every second and fourth Wednesday in month based on first full week.
    The problem is: when the month starts with Tuesday or Wednesday, the event is one week too early.
    How can I configure that recurring event?
    Thank you very much in advance for any useful hint!

  5. Recusrring one day events spread over two days

    Show all events for each day in month view. This will make the calendar far more useable.

  6. Editable Entries in birthday calendar

    1) Absolutely not necessary to identify an entry within the "Birthday Calendar" with "Birthday of" (in German: Geburtstag von ...). There are just birthdays in this calendar!!!
    2) Absolutely necessary is to make the entries editable!
    3) Don't reset the entries changed by WIN Mobile 8.1

  9. Personalize Calendar Reminder

    无法自定义提醒的提前时间,只能选择“5分钟”,“10分钟”等等,无法选择如“8分钟”的提醒时间。
    I cannot personalize the reminder. The choices are "5 min", "10 min", etc. But sometimes I need a reminder like "8 min".

  12. Reminder settings

    Would like to have a faster way to enter the "No reminder". Type a tick box in the first position. I often add small notes that do not need a reminder. Now have to clicks, scrolling, and so at the top find the new reminder. It feel a little bit awkward. Or maybe have the possibility to set default setting to" no reminder". Anyway love the new web Outlook.

  14. Automatically import .ics files

    Example:
    I book a flight and the airline sends me an email with the ticket and 2 .ics files for the flights.
    In Gmail, I simply click on the .ics files to add them to my Google calendar.

    In Outlook.com I have to download the .ics files, go to my Live calendar, click on import and manually add all the files.

    Isn't there an easier way to do it? Why can't it be automatic like in Gmail?

  17. importing calendars

    Please can you bring back the import calendar facility it is no longer there or if it is I can't find it.
    Also this calendar no longer sync's with the windows 10 calendar which is really annoying particularly when you have 4 devices and have to individually update 2 different calendars on each device

  19. calendar loose tasks list

    I wish you add a calendar option which allows you to add a separate task list which is not tied with any day in the calendar, just loose tasks list, it would allow to note tasks which are not executed for the last few weeks, days, months so the calendar syncro service does not erase them when the task has expired.

    I would also be glad if you could move more than one/ several tasks at one go.

    My system is Windows Mobile 8.
    Cheers,
    Slawek

  20. Add personal comments and calendar

    1. Allow adding comments/remarks to each mail.
