Add separate email and calendar icons to home screen.

Each calendar has got a color, but not a icon. If you have more then 5 calendars it's difficult to identify the meaning of the calendar. But with a different icon for each calendar on the first column a appointment-list its easier to recognize.

This app really needs to operate like the SO version.
The ability to pin individual account to the home screen is a necessity.
Please sort it out Microsoft or ill5h to switch to a different app

the problem is the LG calendar app had just stopped syncing with outlook. is outlook withdrawing support? why did Microsoft shut down sunrise app. finding it difficult to get a proper monthly calendar view. outlook not very good for this.
Nick Paratore commented
and have the ability to view a monthly calendar in the mobile version
would make it much easier, hopefully even something was done about this
need to be able to have both email and calendar open at the same time to check calendar while editing email and vice versa.

Make it feel like W10M. Only possible by separating mail, people and calendar.

This will help in quick response to calendar invites

Many times during the day I receive an email from a customer asking me for assistance with something, and to set an appointment. I begin composing a response and need to check my calendar to see when I could do it. However, I cannot access the calendar without first backing out of the message and saving it as a draft. Then after checking the calendar I have to go back into email, find the draft, and then continue writing. This is disruptive and inefficient. Please make it possible to access the calendar and email simultaneously.

And people icon too
What if user would first be able choose to install the Outlook on SD-card? It could be then that the user might be able see the planned icon even in case if the device internal memory is not enough for the app.
Just switched to Android, and this was available on my Windows phone, why not here?
Vanessa Jordan commented
would like all the functionality of outlook to be the same as Windows phone. e.g. individual icons for each email account, simple notification on lock screen to indicate no. of new emails, similar calendar icon etc. etc etc.... much more user friendly and efficient.

on Android 7.0 (Moto g5 plus) the notification icons for calendar and mail are the same. a quick glance at the lock screen is not enough to know if it's a meeting reminder or another email and I have to interact further to find out which. having the icon indicate "calendar" vs "mail" would be very helpful.
I could expand this to "icon per type and account" but I suspect that could become extensive.
good app, I like using it!

View email and calendar in separate windows
Tony Howard commented
SOLUTION FOUND. I was in the same boat where I migrated from windows phone to andriod and wanted my calendar on my home screen like it was on windows. I've got a Samsung S7 edge, where I pressed and held on a blank space on the home screen, then a choice of wallpepers, widgets, themes, screen grid appeared on the bottom. Click on Widgets and then scroll along until you come to outlook (must be installed first) on the outlook your see (2) click on Outlook Agenda then it will give you the option to move it onto your home screen. place it where you want, then you can resize it to your preference. Hope this helps everyone?
