  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. Reminder notification for shared calendar

    I share my work calendar with my @outlook.com profile. There is no reminder for the events in the shared calendar. I have to manually open up the shared calendar in the mobile web and add reminder notifications. Which is very annoying. Moreover, every now and then the reminders of the shared calendar gets removed.

    I would suggest a setting to enable default reminders for shared calendars.

  5. Bring back the "Suggest a new meeting time" option in the Calendar!

    Why was this even removed?? It was the most useful part of the calendar app! Is there really no way to suggest a different day/time now?

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. Optional Birthday Calendar e-mail notifications

    Remove compulsory e-mail notifications from the birthday calendar. Please tell me if it is possible to remove the notifications or make it easier to accomplish.

  13. 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.

  14. 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".

  15. 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!

  16. 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!

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Calendar changes and notifications

    Users should be able to:

    1) Update a meeting (e.g. change location) without sending a notification - the update should be reflected in the other invitees calendars as well

    2) Reply to a meeting invitation without sending a notification - the response should get recorded in the organiser’s tracking nevertheless
