Outlook for iOS

Bring back the Outlook calendar app synchronisation to, at least, 3 months of past events

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.

    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

    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 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!

    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 .
