Date to app icon
Would be a great addition to have the date added to the icon so it would show what the date is without opening the application like Apple has done. Would be an awesome addition
I've replaced stock Mail and Calendar with Outlook, giving me more space in my Home Screen. But I really miss having the date at a glance. Pleas make it an option!

1. Please add date on app icon
2. And add option to turn this on or off
I miss the daynumber onder icon off the app. This is very usefull.
Agree with all the other comments. Not showing the date is really annoying.
Please put the date on the app icon itself. It’s incredible that we as users have to open the app to find the date.
I love the Outlook app but one major missing feature is showing the month day and day of week on the icon. One glance and you know what it is!
So people can quickly reference today's date from their phone's desktop (i.e. without having to open your app) please consider displaying the date on your app's icon.
I want this too
I suggest that anniversary dates should be acceptable. The program provides for such a date but will not permit it to be saved.

Can we display the date on the app icon? I literally just my Apple calendar app on my homescreen to look at the date...

I removed the iPhone email app to use this. I like it but now there is no easy way to view the date quickly at a glance. Please add the date to the app icon like other apps. Thanks

Calendar should be significantly more customizable, email is fantastic but with the calander being so limited in its user interface, Outlook is not capitalizing on Microsoft’s biggest selling points: extensive functions and adaptable paradigms. software capability. ultimately sacrificing ease of use in cross-program Where Apple software is easy and attractive but ultimately uses prescriptive formulas, Microsoft programs are USUALLY the superior option in that they tend to be more functional, adaptive, and ultimately more efficient due to their descriptive framework. By this I mean that Apple products prescribe, or tell people, how a given program should be used whereas Microsoft programs generally succeed at describing, or accepting and reflecting, how a user wants them to function/be used.
Key areas where the calendar can begin improvements:
1.) An expanded ‘Settings’ option.
——> We don’t want/need instant customization capabilities from within the app (ex. swiping to change layouts, calendars and dates), we want this within ‘settings’ where we can configure it beforehand exactly as we’d like it to look and function and then enjoy it.
——-> Very important that users can customize display layouts, category colors, themes, and more visual options because many people get easily confused and frustrated with a calendar they feel they can’t easily read and opt not to use it.
2.) More variation in the available color palette to allow for better organization and compartmentalizations
——> example: If purple was the category for ‘Due Dates’, perhaps an an event labeled in this category could be identified as a due date by its dark solid purple border but also even more easily identified by the shade, opacity, or hue of purple within the borders that signifies further categorization (lavender for school, violet for work, etc.)
3. ) Drag and drop features within Microsoft apps. Enough said.
