More than just 3 months back
Having three months back only is really odd. It makes this nice app a nuisance.
Outlook for Mac is totally broken for more than 2 years because product team ignore this basic request. Is anyone at MSFT listening - we need configurability on mail retention and we NEED to see all or a set we choose of old emails. Its ridiculous I have to use my Windows box to look up an email just to reply to it via the mac. This worries me the product team is not focused on Outlook and Apple culture is deteriorating. If not the case great, but its nearly 3 YEARS the customer base has been begging and nothing ever changes. It could cause me to revert to windows, and it also makes me recommend as a sol architect to clients to use outlook o365 always since using Mac for the same thing cripples your workflow. Cmon guys,.

Show appointments older than three months in Outlook. Why is this so hard to do?
Randomly selecting (not my choosing) how much time outlook will save my calendar is not only annoying but it violates my company retention policy period. I pay for records retention who gives outlook the right to modify my policy based upon their deleting calendar scheduling - ever occur to someone in outlook land that small businesses might need retention periods based upon their schedule not the outlook teams schedule?

Need to be able to search back more than 3 months. Agree with all other commenters
I should be able to look at my past calendar for minimum 12 months but honestly indefinitely- we need to be able to reference meeting and professional development for a significant period of time.

Calendars are also a diary of past events and so 60 days retention is far too short.
12 months on the app is a minimum
Julian SEIDEL commented
Right now the calendar only shows the last 2 months of events and future events. It would be nice for an option to sync 30 days, 60 days, 1 year back of events. Some people need to see more than just the last 2 months of their calendar.
I use apps that can sync ALL emails. Why can’t Outlook do the same?
Wagner Todd commented
Please allow for 6 to to 12 months of past events to show on our calendars. Thank you!

The current calendar history is a definite negative. User should have the choice how far back they want events saved. I do my company expenses on a monthly basis and sometimes it’s two weeks before I get a chance to fill out the previous months expense report so the current history setup is insufficient. I also use this calendar for business purposes and need to be able to look back a minimum of 6 months. I’m going to have to look at other apps or start using a day timer.

I’d like to be able to look back on itineraries for trips to help me remember what I did but the calendar only goes back 3 months.

I am frustrated that I cannot look back at past meetings on my iPhone. I have to schedule meetings & trips based upon the date of a previous month’s meeting(s) & I can’t see them any longer. Let us choose how long to keep/ sync past meetings. I should not have to depend on using my PC to do this! And it used to be available!

Previously I’ve been able to go months back in calendar but I can only see two months back. I hope we’ll be able to access previous appointments going back further soon again.

Please bring back the 3 months of past events.
True , the current sync period isn't satisfying . We need a longer sync period or the availability of another option that we can consider while using portable devices .

Only 1 or 2 months of past events is not enough on the app to display. If this new limitation is due to space saving, at least let the user choose how many months of past events they want on their mobile device (especially the iPad) . Let us choose if we want 1,3,6,9 or 12 months of past events displaying on our mobile device. The fact that we only have 1 month of past events is causing user experience unsatisfaction in our company, especially for our executives. Thank you for considering this new suggestion seriously.

It would be nice if the calendar in this app went back more than 1 month. For work, I often need to see events from the past (whether to grab contact info, a date or address), but on the app i can only look back 1 month. When I’m on the go, it’s frustrating not to have access to this info- it’s inconvenient to have to wait until I’m back at the desktop app to look back more than a month on my calendar
Please include the ability to display ALL calendar events (past and future) in the iPad and Android apps. It is very important to be able to see more than 1 year in the future and 3 months in the past.
Your competitors (iPad calendar app for example) already allow this and have done for years - I am considering reverting to the built in app (but would rather not do).
How can it be that the world's largest software supplier can't show more than a month back in calendars on the mobile? it is extremely embarrassing. Fix it now!
