How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Add additional Calendars to the To-Do Bar

Add additional Calendars to the To-Do Bar.

Outlook 2016 only allows you to view the events located in your default calendar in your to-do bar. Having a feature to add multiple calendars overlapped in the to-do bar calendar would provide a better understanding of my daily schedule. One particular calendar I'd like to add to the to-do bar viewing is a shared calendar so using only categorize to filter is not a viable option.

Having a feature like this would allow for an easier way to view your schedule at a glance in the to-do bar.

        Plus one on this - really lame that you haven't added it yet with as many people as are requesting it

        I can only see my personal calendar; I would like to see all of my additional calendars as well

        Agree 100%. Since this will support cross platform usage, i.e., Mac and PC, Mobile/Phone/Desktop, it is a key feature that is needed! Microsoft PMs, please think about we customers and this VOC!

        Yes, this is a much needed feature in the Outlook desktop application.

        Hey Microsoft folks, please add this feature!

        Nicht nur den Hauptkalender sondern alle Kalender in der Aufgabenleiste anzeigen.

        Voted ! Need this badly with shared calendar with different teams.

        This is needed just as the more than 7 days (default) view of Todo calendar items

        Would be an invaluable asset for those of us who use Outlook at work, and manage calendars for multiple people. Even the option to toggle between calendars would be great, instead of having to switch to the full calendars instead of email view.

        I want to be able to see the events in a calendar that is an internet calendar.

        Suggestions such as combining or importing calendars to the default do not work for internet calendars.

        Please add this feature. I work for four attorneys and I would like to know each of their schedules in order to plan my own day.

        Allow me to select my MS exchange calendar in the To Do Bar without setting my Exchange email as the default. I was able to do this in 2010 but you took that feature away in 2016

        It's crazy that this doesn't exist to be honest. MS - Make it happen!

        I have 10 separate and different calendars, but my To-Do-Bar is always empty.
        To-Do-Bar is at the moment useless ****!
