Calendar events don't sync immediately
When a new event is created on iOS , it's saved and visible on iOS Calendar but not on outlook calendar events view.
Exiting outlook app and reopening it before it shows up.
Not very intuitive. There's sync issue.
Annoying delay in "push" sync between O365 and iOS Calendar app. The MS app for email/calendar on iPhone/iOS in painfully horrible, not an option. And for me, the iOS stock Calendar and email apps work pretty well, also with O365 accounts, except for delays in calendar sync. For example, if I enter/change/delete a new calendar event in O365 on (W10) desktop, it takes waaaay too long before the app on the iPhone is updated. In fact, I'm not even sure how the sync works, only that if I restart the app, only then (sometimes a couple of trials are necessary) is the iOS app synced. Why? Why a delay..? It's "Push", no!? Is it to try to lure users over to MS' own remarkably awful iOS-Outlook app?

WhenI add a calendar item in Outlook for iOS on my iPad, it doesn’t immediately show on the calendar right there in the app. But if I go check Apple’s calendar app, it does — it went to Exchange, got synced to Apple’s Calendar app, but still doesn’t show in Outlook app.
There is a big delay between creating a new event and it appearing in my calendar. This is very frustrating as I question if an appointment has been made or not and then risk creating another appointment that overlaps. Please address this or I will have to stop using this app.
Ive reported this bug several times the last few years. Love the Oulook app, but this makes it unusable. Please fix and quit breaking it!

Please look into this, Microsoft!

If you your self type in a new meeting, it doesn’t show right away in the calendar. Very irritating because you need to see to get confirmation that you didn’t accidentally use a wrong date, etc.
now to see it, you need to shut down the app and restart it.
Or go to Apple calendar to see that you actually got it right!!!

Since I stard to use O365 in my professional account I can't add new meeting in the caledandar and OUtlook app is terrible slow. Can you make sync with O365?
Stephanie Thurston commented
I never know when I have a meeting coming up. It doesn’t notify me. There needs to be an option to alerts for calendar vs email. It’s all or nothing now and it’s not good. I’ve been late to a couple meetings due to this.

I am missing alarms for upcoming Conf calls. But when I go into my notifications it is there?

Calendar option is awful. The alarm is not audible and syncing can not be relied upon. It doesn’t allow use of iPhone calendar which would be ideal. I have tried adjusting volume and type of alert in settings but there were no options that would make it better. I hate this app

Reliability improvements are needed in Outlook for iOS!

Fix sync to IOS Calendar. I am missing appointments and its embarrassing. Every time I try Microsoft products again, there are incompatibilities with the other systems your products interface with. I’m absolutely certain you do this on purpose and it ****** me off.
When i make a new calendar item, it does not appear right away. Not sure why... it goes off to O365 then some time later it appears in calendar.... pretty odd as no real way to confirm if has been entered correctly.

Calendar does not sync with IOS

New calendar item does not show up when phone is in airplane mode (ex. When in a plane).
It should show up immediately even if the internet is not on.

I have never been able to get Outlook to sync with iCloud calendar. I have made many phone calls, messages and chat sessions with absolutely no positive effect.
Outlook/Microsoft need to hire people they’re capable of real time reality, the garbage that you have for options is gross.
Outlook does not seem to have the ability to filter the spam messages. My good friends go to spam and all the real spam goes to my inbox almost always. This is incredibly frustrating for all of us.

first day with office 365 and I hate it. Not syncing with ios calendar, tasks, and contacts is a big problem. The calendar does not have a monthly view. Who knows how to add anew contact? Tasks do’t exist.

I need efficiency not duplication. I need Outlook to merge with iOS calendar so I can manage my work day. If it can’t I’ll have to choose one and iOS will win because it has this feature.
Alan Saunders commented
Outlook calendar is unusable because it doesn’t synch with IOS calendar.Also, no easy way to save an appointment from email to calendar - I have to use native iOS Mail for this
Filip Kokorevs commented
Calendar is not in sync! I see appointments in the ios calendar, but not in here.
“Resseting” account doesn’t helped me.
