Standalone Calendar App
a standalone calendar app for Android so you don't have to go through the outlook app
Stephen Cannon commented
Either allow syncing the calendar to the native phone calendar app or split out the calendar view from the mail view. It takes too many button presses to get to and/or add to my calendar if I have to go through the email app.

Bring back the old calendar access!

det er irriterende at man ikke kan læse mails og tjekke kalender uden at skifte funktion inde i app'en. det fungerer bedre hvis det er to forskellige app's

it takes longer to just check calendar on phone

Kun saan sähköpostin, jossa ehdotetaan palaveria 6.3. klo 15. Suljen sähköpostin ja avaan kalenterin. Etsin päivän 6.3., siellä on tyhjää. Mikä se olikaan se kellonaika? Suljen kalenterin ja avaan sähköpostin ja etsin sieltä kyseisen viestin. Kello 15 se oli. suljen sähköpostin ja avaan kalenterin, etsin päivän ja teen merkinnän. Todella turhauttavaa!

it's too hard look at calendar while writing an email. in the app I have to close my email draft then find it again. as 2 separate apps the open email draft stays open on the desktop when I look at calendar.
the text formatting tools in outlook are too hard to get to on the phone. they should be closer to the keyboard or always there in a skinny menu

While composing an email I can't look at my calendar without it automatically saving the email as a draft. I then have to find the email in my drafts folder rather than a seamless transition if it was its own app.
Separate calendar into a separate app. Your previous comments about there being a widget shortcut is not enough. I want to be able to access calendar while writing and viewing emails. Currently I cannot view emails and the calendar simultanously. I have to leave the message I am writing or viewing to be able to see my calendar. Then go back into my drafts to find the email again. The lack of the ability to easily switch between email and calendar in separate windows is forcing me to search for another app currently. I do not want to do this as outlook calendar has the best functionality with my work email, but it just isn't usable on my phone currently. I am constantly switching between email and calendar in order to plan things.

Make the calendar a separate app; make it work/ behave like it does on Windows phones; and it is cumbersome to use! That said, it is sad the Android version of the Calendar is so poor compared to the Windows phone app! Just to mention one short coming is the lack of the snooze functionality which alone makes the Android version virtually useless, and leaves me looking for a third party app that does work like the Window app!
ln addition, it is slow to launch, to delete reminders, etc, and to sync! It is just sad in every way when compared to the Windows app!

Replicate the Windows 10 Calendar experience such that it may be pinned as a stand alone App, many users are forced to have a third party, or default calendar that connects to their Microsoft account.
On certain home screens leveraging a Calendar App enables additional viewing or previewing functionality, the Arrow launcher comes close but is unable to replace the need for a separate calendar App.

I use the Microsoft Calendar a lot but, in my opinion, if you do an app only for this, the experience at the time of using it will be much better. At my phone I can use it perfectly, and I have a widget only for the calendar, but at the PC or my tablet I have to search it on internet. It will be so nice to have a PC app to ease the entrance. Thanks.❤️

calendar should be separate from inbox. you can't look at email and book calendar appointments or send calendar invites at the same time...
Atulona Datta commented
"Calander" should come separately. As a different app altogether. And it should be in synchronisation with other similar applications.
Maurer Uwe commented
Disconnect Mail an Calender so that Calender ist an extra App - Just Like Google, Apple etc.

you should have an option to have calendar as a separate app. some people may like mails and apps in the same app but i feel the use of one takes over the other in such cases. you should have a separate app for calendar with a better widget and people can choose if they want to see calendar in the same app or as a separate app.

Make Outlook calendar as own Application.
Bart Hellemans commented
The scrolling on day-view is terrible. Why don't you add an option to just scroll through the appointments of one single day and let people choose how they want to scroll?
For people with overloaded Calendars it's extremely annoying that you automatically switch to the previous/following day if you're scrolling through your long list of appointments.
It would also be nice to have an option to show more appointments in the month-view. The space on one day can easily be used more efficiently to show more appointments (again useful for people with many appointments; showing just 3 or 4 is not enough).
Thanks for even considering these suggestions!

I'd prefer to push outlook appts out of my work outlook into a third party app that combines my work and life accounts. At the minute it seems I have to bring life to work or take work home. Surely there's room for balance
Niyi Ajao commented
The Outlook Mail mobile app enables me to access my Outlook mails and Outlook Calendar contents. So when I want to view my Outlook Calendar, I have to first load the Outlook Mail app, and then select Calendar. This is so inefficient and makes Calendar use so clumsy.
Please provide a separate Outlook Calendar mobile app.

Make calender a different app
