Standalone Calendar App
a standalone calendar app for Android so you don't have to go through the outlook app

I know we can already put separate icons on the home screen with a widget or a shortcut but I also want the ability to have separate Mail and Calendar app shortcuts in the app drawer

The extra step to access calendar app through Outlook app is burdensome. provide a standalone app for calendar so I can replace the Google or iOS one.

I am using Outlook instead of default system apps for email and calander, but I do prefer to have separate icons on home screen... I consider it quite stupid to have to open email app to then click again on calander icon to see my events... calender shortcut should be indipendant on home screen (or should be a settings option: "create shortcut on home screen") ... it's a must if you want people to actually switch to Microsoft apps. I had to download a third party app to create a shortcut to the calender screen... (Shortcut Maker) funny thing... it was already there as a preset...(so people have requested it and they made it preset already)

We need to see whats on easy, not klick to outlook, klick choose calendar. We dont need them to be in the same icon, and they could still be connected to each other.

Look at solutions other APP suppliers have. Microsoft have the most worst solution, least developed on the market.

I liked the ability to use android calendar app to sync with outlook calendar so I can see what meetings I have coming by quick glance at my phone. dont like having to go into outlook app and clicking calendar tab to view. too many extra steps.

it doesn't make any sense to leave the email you are writing to see your calendar

there's just too many features that could be developed at a calendar app with a specific UX/UI flow. just do it please, it's 2020 already.

Outlook is becoming very heavy on memory and slower to open after each upgrade.

I should be able to switch screens between these two separate tools.
Android peeps say toggle between apps.
Old school Windows description is alt+tab
Sorry for the frustration in my tone, I do feel a little better getting this off my chest.
Please do action this... it may not be easy to do, however... it's a frog, it ain't gonna taste good, but it still gotta be eaten (CHORUS: EAT THAT FROG! EAT THAT FROG! EAT THAT FROG!)
In case you hadn't guessed, frogs are tasks that are difficult to achieve but worthy of achieving.
Thank you ? ?

Can't examine outlook "calendar" apart from logging into outlook email?! Google allows that - why not Microsoft?!!
Make it optional if you want to see a calendar, I don't see its use, I just needed a dark theme email app. Thanks.

Gostaria que criassem um aplicativo de calendário independente, que não estivesse dentro do Outlook mas que estivessem sincronizados
better to have a separate app or programme on windows for calendar and emails, for convenience and speed.
separate icon for the calender on mobile devices or to sync with the mobile devices calendar showing a different color for mobile and outlook events.
yes separate apps!
I switched from Windows Phone to Android, because Windows phone isn't supported any more.
On my Windows phone the app calender, contacts and email was separate and they were really excellent. On Android they were put together to one app. The birthdays in Android Outlook I can't see.
The handling of contacts, create, maintain, birthdays, enter/change address was much nicer.
The calendar APP in Windows phone had a week view, the calender week was shown. Reminders, etc. could be easily entered and maintained.
I usually don't want to open an "email" just to see what my next appointments are.
If I search for a person to get his address, I don't want to open an "email".
From my point of view it makes sense to offer these APPs seperately.
