        current email widget wastes alot of space. use the Windows Phone tiles for inspiration for space efficiency and readability.

        Calendar widget update is horrible. I want to see more than three days at a time. The type is too small and it's hard to see appointments. Please stop fixing stuff that isn't broken.

        With one of the latest updates calendar widget is minimum 3 high and 2 broad.As I had to reconfigure a widget (which is only possible by deleting and reinserting) i could not restore my layout,as the widget now needs more space!

        The font size on the calendar, especially the widget is TOO SMALL!! It would be great to be able to increase the font size on both.

        First of all, please fix this form so that my email address and name work with Microsoft SwiftKey keyboard... Outlook needs some customization love. My phone is huge, but i can only see a few emails at once. Try looking at what Windows Phone offered. Need to see more emails with less info and no visual bloat. Widgets need the same treatment. Need ability to launch a specific inbox using an icon. Again, see Windows Phone. Android has been a big step back from Windows Phone. And I refuse to use Apple. There are so many things that Outlook needs... Please contact me if you want to improve.

        Old sunrise had a much better looking calendar widget. The forced blue header and White background looks terrible on some setups. Please provide alternatives, for example a transparent version like sunrise had.

        This way we could pin a few icons for our important folders to the home screen and see how many unread/new mail we have at a glance. This would also allow direct access to an email folder.

        Home screen of Android has a calendar widget it only allows the default app to show. how can we get work calendar into this widget or create another widget.

        Remove widget header. When resized down to 2 columns, the header takes up more room than it leaves for actual messages, effectively making the widget completely useless.
