Calendar Widget improvements
Please consider that Calendar widget is a priority #1 for business users.
Please have a look at standard Android calendar widget to get "inspirations", for example:
- configurable timeframe for past & future events
- configurable font & colou
- optimise visualisation to show as much events as possible without scrolling

Reported to support who told me bugs like this have to be reported as feature requests. If I have 4 events on a day and the day cell in the monthly calendar view is big enough to display 4 events it actually only displays 3 events and then a bubble saying "1 More". It should show all 4 events instead. It should only show the "x More" bubble if x is more than 1. This is a basic bug but I can provide a screenshot example if required that shows there is plenty of space to show all 4 events.
Example: I want to hide a less important meeting which I have marked tentative, I don't want to be visible in widget
In the calendar widget, if there are no events for the current day, it will show the next day that has events. This is confusing because it will show events at the top of the widget that aren't until tomorrow. I'd recommend having the blue bar at the top always display the current date by default even if there aren't any events today.
When adding a calendar item from Android widget, please default to the calendar shown in the widget if only one calendar is visible.
no backscroll facility
The Android widget, if there are no events today and some tomorrow, will appear as if tomorrow's events are today. (The widget title is Today and the day header for tomorrow does not display)

" This week, forthcoming events" will show an event more than a week away if there are no events in-between. Which is confusing sometimes. Adding the current date to the widget title bar (Or at least an option to) would address this.

The font size is too large after the newest update. Please, make it possible to choose the font size
Recently the font size has been increased. I would like the option to configure the font size. I actually though the previous font was slightly too large, and now it's been made larger again. It would be great to have a choice.

I get that a feature request was made to change the text size in the widget. But why not make that an option in settings? The new text size looks too big compared to all the other text on my home screen. It comes off as poorly designed. I had no issue with the way it was before.

The Outlook calendar widget is in serious need of a refresh. in comparison to what I could even do with my old Palm datebk app - or, more modern equivalents like Digical - the current widget is feature poor and uncompetitive. If MS refuses to separate the calendar functionality from email, then please at least offer more productive widget solutions. Thx!

The calendar widget in Android is difficult to read. Some improvements are possible: don't show days without events, improve font, allow dark theme. It's feels unpleasant to read it now.

Please establish auto reconnect of the calendar to existing widget after App-Update. Every time I need to recreate the widget while cal- data is not called.
Beers, John W commented
The calendar widget only updates if I use it to open the calendar, then wait for the calendar to update before closing it. This is both very annoying and antithetical to the concept of widgets.
more specifically for colors in the calendar widget. allow configuration that allows the widget to show events from each account in different colors. also allow for showing Google reminders in the calendar widget
