Option to view calendar events of all calendars from same mailbox or different mailboxes in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Option to view all the events or tasks of all the Calendars either from the same mailbox or different mailboxes in Microsoft Outlook 2016. Currently you can only view the events of all the default calendar only in the task pane when hovering a mouse over the calendar menu at the left bottom.

I totally agree, it is very frustrating not to be able to see only the calendar events of the default calendar in the Task Pane...At least we should be able to see the events of the calendars that are selected (checked) on the Calendar page.
To work around this issue and in order to make sure not to miss any event, I have to switch to the Calendar page... or check on my phone...
I hope Microsoft will develop this functionality soon!

Right now Outlook 2016 as previous versions shows the Calendar docked but only the default calendar
Make it possible to link the other calendars a user may have the same way you can in the main calendar to Calendar Peek.
Alternative is a code snippet (VBA) as add-on to customize your own CAlendar Peek

Extremely frustrating and poor design. I have resulted to keeping my iPhone next to my keyboard so that I can quickly check on my upcoming appointments from ALL of my calendars using the iPhone calendar app.

When I'm using my email - I should be able to see my appointments and events from multiple calendars in the To-Do bar - not just those from my default calendar. Many of us use shared calendars so we are across information. This is the primary task of the To-Do Bar.

I have multiple calendars, one in which I gave my team access to keep track of the teams schedule. I would like the ability to move items from my personal calendar to the team calendar.

When you selecting the Calendar icon in your lower shortcut bar you are able to peek at items on your calendar for the next few days. However, it only shows you your default calendar. There is no option to change which calendar to view (or select multiple calendars to view).

This really is super annoying. I have a default calendar that displays in the quick peek, but always forget to check by other business calendar before scheduling a meeting because the time looks free and I guess I have poor executive function. Bur seriously, why can't outlook help me out and show all or some set of selected calendars on the peek view rather then just the default calendar? Seems like something everyone would want.
Zeff Wheelock commented
Why not have the default calendar be a unified calendar which you choose which calendars you want to display in the calendar peek?
See all the calendars at once as Apple does with mail. I really miss this. You should now always look per mailbox. I just want to get everything in 1 mailbox to see.

With us in the county you can download a calendar, where all the acceptance dates of the place are registered. If you add it to Outlook, it would be the second calendar. Unfortunately, these appointments are not shown in the task bar, but only those of the main calendar. As a result, it can happen that the departure dates are overlooked, which can always be very annoying in the summer
Any Update on adding this capability?
Can you please show all calendar events in one calendar instead of separating? Office for Mac has this so not sure why it can't be an option on Windows.

Instead of showing simultaneous calendar events side by side when viewing multiple calendars (overlayed) in "Week" or "Day" mode (which can make event details difficult to read), provide an option to display events on subordinate calendars as though appearing *behind* the event in the calendar in teh foreground (the selected calendar tab). You could hint at the presence of simultaneous events by allowing the event in the foreground calendar to stretch only, say 90% of the width of the column and show the right edges of the other simultaneous events in the remaining bit of column width (e.g., between 90% and 100% of column width). You'd want to show just enough so that the user would see that something is occurring simultaneously on another calendar, and they could click on the tab color coded to the event and then bring that calendar to the foreground, whereupon the even that had appeared in the background becomes the event that takes up 90% of the width of the column and the other events just hint at their presence from behind it. Providing one event 90% of the width of the column would ensure ease of reading the details iof the event, which the current setup does not.
I would like to see all my calendars' events on the ToDo bar's calendar view. Right now only the default calendar's events can be seen.

I use the calendar to record time-driven tasks as well as appointments. I will enter the deadline and then earlier tasks as "reminders" of the upcoming deadline. It would be great to have a checkbox in setting up a calendar item that would allow the reminders to show on the calendar as well as in the calendar window. If I checked the box and set a reminder for 2 weeks in advance, that would show up on the calendar 2 weeks in advance. If I Snoozed the reminder for a day, it would move forward a day on the calendar. This would save me entry of many reminders and make the process more logical and interactive.
Yes, it is important to have the preview pane reference multiple calendars versus just the default. Is this a feature and maybe I am just doing something wrong?
Please make this available
I want to dock a specific calendar. How can I do that
Vital to our success as a firm, this needs to be added.
