  1. Keep Notes Section In Calendar Event

    When making a calendar event in the current Outlook.com there is a section to add notes. This is missing in the Beta Calendar. Notes are visible in the Beta from entries made in the current Outlook.com Calendar but you are unable to edit them. I use the notes section to remind me of details about calendar events. The loss of this option would force me to use a different Calendar app/service.

      • categories with colors in calendar

        I liked the previous feature of having categories with different colors in the calendar. Having colors makes it easier for me to know what should be done, compared to charms. eg have a red category for deadlines and a green for completed. that way i briefly scan my calendar page and i know all the information i need.

          Thanks for trying the Outlook.com beta! We’re excited to announce categories are now available in calendar to color-code your events.

          Right-click on an event and select “Categorize”.

          Please keep all of the great feedback coming!

        • "Add calendar" options (subscribe to calendar, import ics files) were clearer and easier to find in old Outlook.com

          The options for adding new calendars were easier to find when they were at the top of the page; now I have to scroll down to the bottom of my list of calendars to find them. It also does not make sense that the "From file" option is under "Discover calendars". If I have a file I want to add the calendar from, then I already know about that calendar and don't need to discover it, so I wouldn't look for that there.

          • Low-contrast colors in Outlook.com Beta Calendar

            The color scheme used by the new Outlook.com Beta Calendar - particularly on the Month view, which this feedback is referring to - is a huge step backwards in user-friendliness and accessible design.

            I make extensive use of categories in my calendar, with each category using a different color. With the pre-beta Outlook.com Calendar, the calendar appointments on the Month view were displayed as a solid, high-contrast, rectangular block of bold color with the title in bold text inside the block. The colors and styling closely matched those used in the Outlook 2016 desktop client, which made it very easy…

              • Multiple Calendar Reminders

                I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.

                I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.

                    Thread says Beta calendar is fixed to have reminders, but it still doesn't allow the email reminder. Still missing important functionality of Classic calendar.

                      • printing calender

                        I need to be able to print the calendar like I could before. Now the calendar won't print correctly in landscape mode. It prints half on one page and half on another. The margins are off and look lopsided when printed.

                        I also like being able to print a date range. For example, I sometimes need to print 3 months at a time when I'm looking at my schedule. Now I have to go and print from each month instead. It takes too much time.

                        I miss being able to scroll down through the calendar. I sometimes need to look…

                          Please restore email reminder functionality to calendar! I rely on this to keep track of my schedule and I'm now using Google calendar because I can't get this Outlook.com beta to send me email reminders.

                          • Email reminders in Beta are not visible

                            Thank you for finally putting email reminders into the Beta version of Calendar :-) However, unfortunately the Beta version it doesn't allow me to see the existing email reminders - there is a blue hyperlink, but nothing happens when I click on it. When I go from Beta back to Original calendar, I can see and edit the email reminders.

                                  • google maps

                                    Bing Maps integrated in Calendar are stupid and useless anywhere outside of US when you try to locate anything a bit more local than a capital city. Adding a location while creating new event is simply impossible because Bing Maps can’t find 99,99% of searched locations. The must is integration of Google Maps — the most powerful tool ever in the world of navigation, at least — as an Add-in, and ideally — as an option to choose as default maps.

                                      Creating a new message, it is always displayed in the preview position.

                                      If the preview is set to display at the bottom area, it is very small and hard to see.

                                      I do not want to press the maximize button every time, so new mail should be created automatically in another window.

                                      • Do NOT propose calendar event in my email

                                        Do NOT propose calendar event in my email - it wastes lots of screen space. I also don't want outlook to read my email - it a privacy issue. At least let user turn that stupid feature off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                        • Today list on calendar month view missing

                                          Love the email section

                                          When using the beta calenadar, I no longer have today's calendar items on the right hand side on the month view.

                                          I prefer month view and to see today's list.
