    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

  4. Calendar notifications not visible

    Hello,
    I like the new look, however in this beta version I don't receive reminders or calendar notifications (the pop-up window does not appear on the screen anymore). And in the top right corner the Notifications / Skype buttons are no longer there.

    Thank you

  6. edit past calendar events and move events to edit

    Consider adding back the ability to edit past calendar events and "moving" the past event to a new future date. This made it super easy to reschedule event that didn't happen or one in which you just want to keep moving forward.

  7. Today I can't access to my calendar.

    Something is going wrong with the calendar service. Today I can't access to my calendar. It appears as if it tries to charge the app continuosly.

  8. Bring back flight details

    Some time last year you all added flight details to the top of booking confirmation emails. I really liked it! That made it super easy to figure out the important information like booking reference number and flight number etc. Please bring it back.

    Thanks - a Microsoft employee

  9. Add ability to search multiple calendars simultaneously

    Users have the option to create multiple calendars and share calendars with other users. All calendars can be displayed, but the search feature only searches one calendar at a time.

  10. Bring back ability to change calendar for existing event

    If I create an event and then decide I want the event on a different calendar (like a shared one), I can't change it. This used to be an option. I have to recreate if from scratch on the the other calendar and then delete the first one.

  12. Better week view

    Hi, would be great if there was week agenda view where you had 7 boxes, one for each day of the week, arranged more like a paper diary so you can see each entry. At the moment with week view being tall narrow columns you can't see overlapping entries well; if entries were listed one above the other each day you could read them all clearly. Bing search "weekly planner view" or similar. Thanks

  17. ICS

    On the previous version of Outlook.com, when someone would email me a .ics attachment, I was given the option to add the event directly to my calendar. This seems to be missing from the beta and I can only download the ics as an attachment.

  18. Add EasyJet flight emails to calendar automatically

    Hi, easyjet flight emails are not being added automatically to calendar because they are being sent from donotreply@easyjet.com and not from any of the email addresses you have on your list of supported services and respective email addresses. Can you please fix this? Thanks.

  20. Viewing Calendar Appointments

    I want to see category colours as on the old calendar as this helps me to quickly identify the difference between essential and non essential appointments. I also want to be able to see all appointments scheduled in the weekly/monthly view, not just the first appointment input for a particular day. It's deceptive when only one appointment shows up.
