Enable a calendar and email split screen view so I can respond to emails while looking at my calendar.

Being able to open emails and calendar events simultaneously
This is the only restraint keeping me at google. Need to separate calendar and email in outlook!!!
I get many emails and don't want my phone alerting every time. Want to turn off push for emails only.
dedicated mail, contacts and calendar apps
Lynch, Stephen P commented
why not enable a second window for calendar, so I don't have to close an email to find my available times?
today if I get an email with times on my phone, I need to back out of that email and toggle to calendar. but wait, what were the times again? I can switch to another app to view them and land on the same day in the calendar I was looking at.

calendar acces while teading emails

When I receive a email telling about an event, I have to close the email if I want to check my calendar for availability, and then find that email again in my inbox and reopen it before I can send a reply. (Android)

In the mobile outlook app, the app either has an open email or the calendar open. It will not allow you pop out the email into a separate window, so you can view the calendar and create / schedule events based on the information in the email.
It is a huge step in the wrong direction with Outlook email and calendar in the same app and not being able to reference one without closing the other. Emails and Calendars go hand in hand. When using a corporate account which requires the Intune app, all third party calendar and email apps are not an option. This feature limitation in the Outlook app is Huge step backwards in Mobile productivity.

If you open an email, the three icons at the bottom for mail, search, and calendar disappear. So if you open and email and want to create a calendar event, you're forced to go back, click calendar, and create the event without the ability to toggle back and forth between them.
When working with email and you need to check a date you have to save a draft and then open calendar. When working with native apps they are separate which makes it a lot easier to switch between an open email and calendar. Please make it possible to have an email open at the same time as the app to be able to access calendar

I have the same issue as Owen

what is then use of a calendar notification, when it disappears if I check an email. the calendar app should be separate!
Steve Mott commented
I frequently get emails with date references in them. I want to quickly check my calendar for those dates and then go back to the rest of the email.
Right now I have to close the email in order to go to the calendar, so then that email is lost in my inbox again when I get done with the calendar. This is especially painful when I had to search for the email.
There's a reason calendar and email apps are usually separate.

I hate note getting access to my g mail!!!

I find it frustrating that I have to exit an email I'm reading that is proposing a meeting time and then select calendar to consider the suggested meeting date. It's the biggest reason why I am tempted to revert to my phone's own email and calendar. It would be helpful to multitask in some way to flick quickly between email and calendar.

I want to be able to open a separate instances of the Outlook app to have the calender and the mail section open on the same time. Perhaps even this 'post an idea window', now if I need to check my calendar quickly I have to dismiss this screen/window.. It feels very counter productive!

Allow switching between mail and calendar. often I want to look up my agenda for a day while composing an email. Have to close email, go to calendar, close calendar, retrieve draft. very annoying. could Outlook app e.g. be launched as a pure second calendar app to enable switching?
