Display multiple shared calendars side-by-side (currently limited to 3) in day view.
I regularly need to view multiple shared calendars (often 8 or 9). This is fine in Outlook for Windows which allows multiple shared calendars to be displayed side-by-side in the day view, but the Mac version limits me to 3 calendars side-by-side. Adding any more merges the content making it much more difficult to identify individuals and schedule activities. I'd like to see the restriction removed to allow multiple calendars to be displayed in individual columns making scheduling across multiple individuals and rooms much easier.
How do we make this an important issue for Outlook? For Executive Assistants three calendars is a joke. I need to see 6-8 executives at once, side-by-side PLUS three conference rooms. Come on Outlook for Mac! I could see as many as I wanted on a PC!

Yes. We need side by side view in week and month view.
Hard to believe this feature has been disabled in the outlook web at.
Please fix this, it wasn't broken.

How can I share three calendars side-by-side in Outlook 365 for Macintosh? The Overlay button is greyed out.

This feature on Windows is the "Schedule View" . Please find that suggestion here and apply your votes to that.

I can even view 3 side by side, how do I do that ?
Lars Freisig commented
I totally agree on this.
We here at API/Axxos/Optiware have used Office for a long time for windows.
There are a lot of the users I support that have switched to Mac and now feel the difference in features. But amongst the most outspoken requests are the ability to view the shared callenders side by side as it is possible in the windows version..
This feature is BADLY NEEDED!!!!
Agreed. It's weird that this is even a restriction... Is this the same on the newest versions of Office for Windows?

I have the same question as Grant Sorrell. Will the restriction be removed to allow multiple calendars to be displayed? I would like to view more than 3 calendars side-by-side in the day view. It would be great if Microsoft could fix this issue. Thanks!

Why on earth would anybody ask "Please remove the ability to view more than 3 calendars in side-by-side view"? Why automatically collapse more than 3 into 'Overlay' view? Who was clamoring for that? It seems your developers never actually use your products.

you may already know the workaround is to begin to create the meeting and when you click the "scheduling" icon in the ribbon, add all people and you will see as many schedules as you want.
