  1. 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.

  2. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

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

  4. 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?

    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.

    You might also find this help article useful: aka.ms/outlookcombetahelp. It has some simple steps to fix common problems.

  5. 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.

  6. calendar sucks, are you trying to get people to go to something else, it's working

    the whole beta sucks, i have been using outlook since it came out, this one is useless.

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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
