desktop shortcuts to email, contacts and calendar
revive outlook.com app
Marcroft, Geirean commented
When using the app it is really frustrating to have to swap from email to calendar as soon as you enter the app when you want to review calendar and the last time you were the app you were in email. This used to be one of the excellent features of Windows phone and native android apps of email and calendar have separate buttons.
I only wnt Msft Calender and Contacts...on phone the easiest icons are the gmail ones!
There is no use for separate shortcuts if those just open outlook in the last state it was opened. Calendar shortcut must open calendar, mail shortcut email view.
What's the point. Very annoying...
You can create shortcuts on the homescreen to Mail and Calendar. But they both default to which ever was last open so, for example, of you open Mail, click on the Calendar button to switch to Calendar, then close it and reopen via the Mail shortcut, you're still back in Calendar view.
it would be great if the calendar and mail shortcuts went directly to calendar and mail respectively no matter what was last open.

I think this would be a terrific feature. Accessing specific information would much more efficient. Thank you for listening

i would love to see the outlook calendar separately

it only makes sense to separate calendar and contact into separate apps. doesn't make sense to have to go to outlook, then calendar to schedule something, or outlook then contacts to call someone.

with mobile, it only makes sense to have calendar and people (contacts) in two separate apps so I don't need to go to outlook then calendar, or outlook then people.
very important. these are two issues keeping me from switching calendar and contacts to outlook.

Would prefer these to be separated. Or at least let me pick which accounts can be used on each (mail vs calendar). I want both work and personal calendars shown, but only personal emails.

The functionality of Windows mobile apps for mail, calendar, and contacts was so far ahead of what the Android Outlook application cyrrently provides. The Microsoft team should consider mapping that functionality against the current Android app and identifying all the functions that are missing from the Android app.

incredibly obnoxious to have to dig out your calendar from inside of your Outlook email, and calendar top takes up a third of the page when you have the day display chosen. Can only see a couple hours of the day rather than the whole day. Basically calendar is beyond obnoxious.

I believe android now allows developers to make it possible to install only parts of their app as needed. Allowing the option to have an all in one app or only the parts wanted. Please code Outlook this way so everyone can have what they like. Thank you.

What are you thinking?! Why would you want three apps when one will do. Three apps to update, maintain and clutter your phone... Hmmm, I'm out!
Terry Burch commented
I want them separate so that I can open what I want.

Why will my Outlook contacts not intrigrate with my phone contacts but with the "Active Sync for HTC" it does seemlessly.

Microsoft to-do is already available as a separate tasks app. Also I think that the calendar is fine, it is just unconventional. What it lacks is a persistent month view and week numbers.
This is not a competitive calendar. It's a good mail client, subpar calendar and weird insert of file manager and contacts.
