    Hi Outlook users,

    We’re excited to announce that the Outlook on Android application now supports shared calendars for Office365 and Outlook.com users!

    If you already have a shared calendar, you’ll need to upgrade it so that it syncs to your mobile phone. It’s simple to do though: just ask the calendar owner to re-share the calendar to you, and then click the Accept button in the Outlook app. After accepting, you’ll be able to see the shared calendar on your mobile phone!

    This feature is only available if both the calendar owner & the sharing recipient are hosted in Office365 or Outlook.com. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the in-app support team by going to Settings > Help & Feedback> Contact Support and we’d be happy to help!

  2. Easier multitasking between email and calendar

    Outlook has multiple functions integrated in the same app... Not only would I like to have a separate icon to launch directly into email or calendar (not to mention better calendar widgets), but having both functions in a single app makes multitasking more challenging, e.g. check calendar while composing or reading email. Is there a way to deliver a better experience in Outlook's "monolithic" design?

  8. Sync Exchange calendar.

    Presently, I have to have a stock Android calendar setup to sync with Exchange, otherwise your app is not synching with exchange calendar. Seems pretty bizzare.

    Good news! Outlook for Android now allows you to forward calendar invites to your friends and colleagues. Simply forward the invite you receive to anyone in your contact list! If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach us at support. Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

  10. Calendar scrolling is horrible on Motorola G4

    scrolling is horrible as position always returns back a day or so until all events are loaded which can take up to 30 seconds for scrolling to normalize.

  13. add day selection UI similar to day view in 3-day view

    The agenda and day views have a UI to jump to a specific day in the calendar, but the 3-day view does not. This forces users to scroll when trying to reach other months in the 3-day view.

  14. Dial directly from Calendar with passcode.

    for any conference call there are conf bridge number and passcode. Other calendar allows dialing all in one button, and recognizes comma and # sign.

    After I create an event in the Outlook app for my Outlook.com calendar, the event doesn't show up on the local app calendar view for at least 30 seconds, and I don't know if it was set correctly until it shows up.

  20. Return to the old style of time selection

    I really liked the old way of selecting the start and end time of an event using the round shaped clock. It was fast and intuitive. The 'new' way feels archaic and slow in comparison. Please revert to the old style.
