  2. Duration of Events

    I would be very helpful for events to show duration on the monthly view.

  3. Calendar descriptions are cut off, possibly hiding important information

    Long calendar event descriptions are cut off, thus hiding potentially important information when subscribing to an .ics calendar.

    This is the case for a university schedule where the lecture hall number is hidden because it is last in the description.

    Please allow a way to customize how the description is parsed when subscribing to an .ics calendar.

  5. Allow Multiday Calendar Events (not repeating, spanning)

    It used to be that I could create a calendar event that started on one day and ended on another. It seems that feature has been removed from outlook.com. Thankfully I can still do it on literally every other device I used to add appointments to this exact same calendar.

  7. Your new calendar "feature"

    Your new calendar "feature" of adding flights based on emails needs some work. I received my itinerary last night for Sioux Falls, SD to Phoenix/Mesa, AZ last night. Your calendar changed it to Sioux Falls, SD to Yuzhny Airport in Russia!!! Had me worried for a while.

  9. Automatically accept invites

    Automatically accept invites. It'd be productive for Outlook.com to have an option to automatically accept invites from all or specific contacts. Maybe a Rule in Outlook.com? Or a setting?

    In my case, I have family members that always accept my invites. In this case they happen to be my children. However I can see this as being useful for close contacts (family members), work associates, or someone helping me maintain a schedule.

    It's also useful for the invite acceptance notifications to be automatically stored in a folder or deleted.

  10. Calender balloons go outside the window

    Calender balloons, appear when clicking events, sometimes go outside the window in the week view. This probrem happens when clicking events around the bottom of window, which may related to the vertical scroll position of the calender.

  11. Hard to find TODAY of week view

    Color of past events should be a bit dark in addition to background color. Regarding current calender of week view with full of events, all events are vivid in color while today's event is not highlighted.

  18. Calendar Errors

    Why is St.Patrick's Day always listed wrong on my calendar. It's supposed to be March 17 but it is always shown on March 18 because supposedly Newfoundland and Labrador celebrate it on the day. I don't live in Newfoundland or Labrador, I live in Ontario and we celebrate St. Patrick's Day on March 17. Fix this, I'm tired of having to manually add it to my calendar every year. I would also like to be able to delete the incorrect entry but I can't, it's locked. Please don't lock automatic events like holidays since I would like to clean out…

  19. Calendar notification spam when nothing changed

    I subscribe to notifications for a shared calendar between my wife and I. About once a week or so I'll get change notifications for nearly all events on that calendar. However, nothing has changed. In some cases, as today, there were 3 or 4 notifications for the same event. Again, nothing had changed.

    This feature is more trouble than it's worth, so I have disabled it. Please do not send notifications if nothing about the event has changed.

  20. Year arrow selection confusing

    on outlook calendar on the panel where you select the month, hitting the up arrow send the year down one, and hitting the down arrow sends it up a year. Having it the other way around would make it a little bit more intuitive.
