    the ability to see events that are occurring soon from the lock screen would be helpful

  2. In Calendar for the Day, 3-Day and week view, be able to set start and stop times of view.

    In the day view or 3 day view you show all hours of the day. Most might only need to see around 8 hours or so. This would help bring the view to the first part of users day when selected. Maybe the ability to 2 finger zoom in and out the view?

  3. Bring back all event icons, option to set manually

    Similar to To Do list icons, allow the option to set any event icon, or none at all, next to the title. I currently want to place the "moon" icon next to a Night Meditation event but it's not available.

  5. Include an option to "attend meeting in person" or "attend meeting remote"

    Meeting in person has limitations on group size due to Covid. It is difficult to manage how many will attend in person vs. Remotely to ensure the room size meets the CDC guidelines. Having the option to select attend in person or attend remotely would allow the organizer to prepare appropriately.

  6. The calendar should show daytime hours (e.g. 9.00 - 17.00) by default, when switching from mail to calendar (day) instead of 0.00 - 8.00.

    I am mostly interested in my daytime and evening schedule. Each time I switch between mail and calendar however I have to scroll down to see the daytime and evening hours.

  9. Be able to view 4-5 hrs in Calendar week view for Android (Samsung S10) this works on iPhone SE! On the Android app only 2 hrs are visible.

    When you turn the phone horizontally to view the calendar in week view you only see 2 hours of the days shown. The blue top part + the all-day row takes more than 50% of the screen estate. You cannot get an overview with only 2 hours for each day. Funny enough you get four and a half hour in the same view on iPhone SE! So please make it at least 5 visible hours on a Samsung S10/S20 as they have a much larger screen.

  12. For Microsoft Calendar, make the time blocks more accurate. My 2pm to 2am shift shouldn't look the same at my 7pm to 7am shift.

    Anytime something is scheduled past midnight, the colour block for the event covers both days. Instead it should only cover a portion depending on how many hours into the next day the event occurs. A 2pm to 2am shoft should only have a slight overlap into the next day, not the entire next day. This makes it much easier to visualize at a glance. Sincerely First Responders and other shift workers.

  13. Set Teams user status based on Calendar Invite

    Insights does a great job asking if you want focus time. When insights create focus time, it shows your status in Teams as 'Focusing' which is not a normal status you can select in Teams. It is done by integration between Insight, Teams, and Outlook.

    To improve worklife balance in the workplace, I would like to request at least three simple changes:
    1. OOF ... - If I create an outlook items and label it vacation, I would like my Teams to update with the status 'OOF for ...' with a purple ring with DND features. The ... should be…

  14. disable up next

    the "up next" feature may be handy for some, but it should be optional. i have other ways of seeing the same data, and having it at the top of the message list is just taking up space.

  15. Please make sync of meeting emails with calender optional.

    Whenever my organization schedule classes, I get emails and it gets automatically added to calendar, and there is already timetable added in calendar by me, so two same events exist at the same time.

  17. list certain emails as priority when they mention approaching due dates. School tuiton due, deadlines to apply for things etc.

    send non important school "health and wellness and athletics emails to 'non essential folder, and show pressing matters at the top so they won't be missed. have nearly missed deadlines and the clutter is not appreciated however I dont have time to sort through it myself.

  19. Swipping horizontally on the daily calendar view is too agressive.

    In daily view of the calendar when swipping horizontally it moves very agreesively. Ideally with one swipe it should go to the next/previous day and not further. Currently it takes you 2, 3 or even 4 days further. It should be way less agressive and take you only one day further per swipe.

  20. Phone numbers contaning silences should be recognised

    Phone numbers that include silences (designated by a comma) followed by typing an extension (for example, for conference lines that require codes) are no longer recognised - only the part before the silence is recognised.

    This used to work fine, but no longer works in version 4.1.38.
