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.
Hello, I will be glad to use two calendars in (ToDo Bar).
Please insert this option in outlook client app.
Vitally necessary feature. So many apps create separate calendars, we need to be able to fully integrate them with Outlook.
Please allow overlay of mutliple calendars in to-do view PLEASE!!!
James Beatty commented
I can overlay calendars in calendar view but the 'to do bar' with its listing of upcoming events is a preferred useful alternative...only displaying a single calendar practically cripples the usefulness of it.
Randy Nordell commented
Yes, allowing multiple calendars in the To-do pane where events from both (or more) calendars display in the list of events is a necessary feature. It is very restricting to have only one calendar's events displayed in this pane.
Please add this feature.
Please, please add a multiple calendar view to the To-do pane.
What is the reasoning for not allowing more than one calendar in the To-Do window? Without having multiple calendars, it renders it almost useless.

Not sure how Microsoft is taking it easy for years now. They gotta be serious on this.
Chris Gersch commented
This suggestion has been made hundreds (if not thousands) of times before under different headings.
I've just discovered that the ToDo view only supports one calendar, and all the calls fix this oversight going back many years. Microsoft have really dropped the ball on this one.
In 2019, there's no excuse to still be running beta features! Please fix this. Outlook should concentrate on being feature complete and stable rather than getting constant cosmetic refreshes.

On the daily calendar, provide space to add notes/to do items

As a front-liner I am responsible for knowing what meetings are going to be held at our facility, I have multiple shared calendars, it would be very helpful and a much needed functionality to SEE those schedules in the To Do Bar.
590 votes and 128 comments since the idea was mooted and there's no response from Microsoft?? This is a fundamental piece of functionality that would be very gratefullly received!
Please implement this!
What's the use of having multiple calendars if you can only see the default one?
If you offer the possibility to manage multiple calendars you MUST make them all visible in the to-do bar.

It is especiall misleading that the To-Do bar shows the items from all calendars, but the scheduel above only shows the entries in the default calendar.
All active calendars should feed into the schedule on the right hand bar.
I'm forced to disable the todo bar. I miss appointments because I forget that it's only showing one calendar.
This is fundamental stuff. It's 2019 and many users have multiple accounts & calendars. If a calendar event is added from any account other than default, it's simply not viewable in the To-Do Bar, making the To-Do Bar annoyingly irrelevant. This issue is pushing me toward finding something to replace Outlook.

Please add this feature, we, the "productive users" really need this.
When working with two accounts (one personal and one shared account), it would be great to have one overview of the tasks of both accounts.
Now I have one folder called Taks - Emma and one folder Tasks - ICT. But I need one overview of the tasks of both folders to keep track.
Otherwise you need to keep switching between the two folders.
Been reported since 2010 elsewhere... 9 years later still not implemented? Come on Microsoft...
Currently the Todo bar (in the email view) only shows events from the default calendar. Need to be able to include events from other calendars (eg if you have a work and a separate personal calendar in Outlook). The calendar view allows this but the Todo bar doesn't.
