  1. .ICS import change/delete calendar items

    I use the .ics import to fill a calendar with my work meetings. I export an .ics file from my Outlook at work, import it into outlook.com. As my company doesn't allow a link to their Exchange from other devices, I use it to have my calendar on my phone and home computers.

    Now I have noticed that when once imported an item isn't updated when a new import is done. When an item is deleted, it isn't deleted from my outlook.com calendar, same happens when an item is changed (for instance time changed) the orignal item stays in the…

  2. 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".

  5. 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.

  7. 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?

  10. 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

  12. 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

  14. Calendar View

    Allow the calendar view to only show the hours, regardless of the range selected (60 mins, 30 mins, 15 mins) that we want. I only want to see the hours from 7:30 am - 11:30 pm - please allow us to hide the extra time rows.

  17. Allow bi-weekly scheduling

    Why did you remove the capability to use bi-weekly as schedule? I think you use to allow this but with your latest change, we lost it. Please put it back. Other calendars allow this so you should too.

  19. MULTIPLE CALENDAR REMINDER DEFAULTS IN OPTIONS

    I am sure that you made changes to this calendar based on user feedback, however, there appears to be some functionality that was stripped out.

    To begin, the old interface made adding notifications (via e-mail or SMS) much easier. The new interface is less intuitive, although it does have more functionality.

    It appears that in the default settings, you have taken away the option for default multiple reminders. For example, as a default, I had the old calendar set up to give me event reminders two days, the day of and a text message 1/2 hour to appointments. This helped…

  20. Month View of all events

    I'd like to view all events on my Month-View calendar (not just in a side bar). Can I have an option to do that please. If it's only visible in a side bar, an event can get missed as it's only visible on the day, and not ahead of time (unless I click on each day).
