  1. repeating or recurring events

    Not enough flexibility scheduling repeating events. Can't schedule a repeating event every other week. Current Outlook provides excellent flexibility.

  2. Old Colors that pop out to you

    All-Day events no longer pop out with the highlighted colors - those are my monthly reminders and recurring dates that NEED to stand out to me. If anything, the day-to-day appointments and schedule COULD be unhighlighted.

    Thank you for your feedback! We have just released an option to switch to more saturated calendar colors in the new Outlook.

    If you would like to try out this experience, please click on the gear icon in the top right of your calendar module to access your settings, and toggle “Bold event colors”.

  6. default calendar

    Need an option to set default calendar for new events. I have a shared calendar which I'd like to set as default, but everytime I create a new event it starts within the Personal Calendar. Some version ago it was possible (like, the last calendar selected for the last event would have been the default calendar for new events)

  8. calendar invites

    In the new BETA of outlook.com calendar there is no way to invite others to a calendar event. If that is not resolved I will be forces to leave outlook.com entirely. I love Outlook.com but this is THE calendaring system for all of us, and without being able to share and invite it will not work

  10. calendar event description

    I was unable to add event description. Is it possible now? Only title, place, time, repetition, reminder is available. Option to add/edit event description is must-have. Otherwise it looks and works fine.

  11. I share a calendar across the family for each member, and I want to be able to put calendar entries on their calendar

    I would like to create calendar entries on my kids calendars (like I can now with the old interface). I'm using Edge on Win 10, and I do not see a 'calendar' selection. This is required for me to use this calendar … please add this back!

  13. Unable to edit calendar events effectively in Beta version, pop up is too small.

    Beta version looks good, except its hard to edit calendar items, as the pop up is very small in the Beta version.
    The original version gave you a big pop up that you can read the entire contents and edit as needed. The Beta version is too small to edit effectively.

  16. Can't edit an event

    Can't edit an event. If the event I'm trying to edit is at the end of the month (hence the bottom of the page), if the "edit" dialog box does show up, half of it shows up and the other half is off screen. And I can't scroll to submit any changes I make. Other times, I click an event to edit and the dialog box just never pops up.

    How do you add further detail to your Calendar appointments? The old version had a box you could type further details in.

  19. calendar entries missing

    I am almost sure this is linked to the beta version upgrade. The synch to anything Outlook (calendar, mail, contacts) stopped working on my Huawei phone 18th November. I have lost all calendar entries except the recurring ones (lesson learnt: don't keep you calendar entries in Outlook) and am very annoyed. When I log in to Outlook on-line, mail is there, I have the contacts but only have the recurring calendar entries. Any suggestions for recovering these entries?

  20. Beta Calendar missing functionality of prior calendar

    It seems other have the same opinion, but the Beta Calendar is missing a lot of the useful functionality of the prior calendar. Missing the view pane that shows all calendar entries for a day, doesn't allow for setting up reminders, and doesn't have the message area for recording important information about the calendar entry. I have having to toggle the calendar off of Beta in order to make it useful. Then I have to toggle back to Beta for my inbox because the older version keeps losing hot links... Nightmare... Hope there are plans to get the calendar functionality…

    Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for notes, adding attendees, and reminders in a calendar event in the Outlook.com beta is now complete. If you refresh, you should be able to see the experience. We are reviewing the feedback for calendar entries in a day and will reply back when we have an update.
