Improve the calendar.
- shifting event by sliding it
- editing event by touching it
- week view with at least 5 days & 24 hours
- synchronize event color from Outlook desktop
Currently Outlook and Android calendar work independently. I am using outlook for all my work and personal email account which include calendar, contact and email. It's great, but since it's not native calendar of Android, few of my apps and devices not able to work on schedule and alert part of meetings etc. Will Outlook calendar replace Android default or set it self as default!

The tablet version has a dropdown next to the month, when in Day and Week view, to quickly move to another month. please add this to the phone version.

Add possibility of multiple calendar notifications before the event deadline. Add possibility of multiple calendar management from mobile app.
Add week view and week number
Have a calender automatically revert to my preferred setting, such as month or week, after scheduling an event. Also a repeat function for recurring events or appointments.
See acalender+ Android App which has great usability
If you need to create a widget the size of an app icon, that would be acceptable.

Having to use Intune for corporate security reasons, it is not possible to use a third-party calendar app to show different calendars in one view. So the only app that can show all calendars is Outlook. However, this calendar is far away from state-of-the-art (which is a shame for Microsoft). Since I am sure this problem does not only hit me, pls introduce at least the following improvements:
1. Week view !!!!!
2. Zoomable views (with 2-fingers gesture) !!!
3. More color options with stronger colors
4. Options to set default views such as eg default range of time to be shown when opening the calendar
5. Shortcut or app icon to directly open the calendar without having to see emails first (perhaps this requires the calendar to be implemented as a second app independent of email).
6. Have a look to eg Digical and see what a modern calendar app should offer (eg font size in calendar entries, etc etc).
I have repeatedly posted respective suggestions here in the last year or so, without any effect. DOES ANYONE READ THIS? If so, I would be more than happy to receive a development roadmap, to my email address.
As a professional use of the outlook app (via Intune Company Portal) increasingly becomes a wide standard, it is REALLY time to improve the outlook app calendar. Most important and missing features: 1. Week view, 2. Ability to zoom in and out (ie to have all 24 hours in view if required). DOES ANYONE REALLY READ AND REFLECT ON THESE POSTS??
Enable more settings in calendar; wanna set specific working hours.
I would love to be able to move a calendar event to a different calendar. I sometimes use these events as tasks and move them to a different calendar when done. It could only be done on the web.

The interesting calendar has moments when it just not shows the needed information. Example, a soccer championship is checked but it is not shown in the calendar. Please fix this issue.
changing attendees informs all not only the one added

Add week view

The calendar widget is garbage compared to Gmail's. The in app calendar is inefficient at managing screen real estate and conveying information, the widget drops recurring appointments and duplicates events pulled from online calendar scheduling systems. The metro Windows 10 mobile interface was much better at doing this. In an effort to look pretty the GUI is making the calendar a frustrating experience compared to Google's.

This is an annoying fault : when editing a calendar event, it does not allow you to change all the options. For example, you can't change the calendar and you can't change the frequency of the event. Please allow for full edit.
