  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. I wish for improved Recurrence options in the calendar.

    The Outlook calendar I use at work has a much better "Recurrence" facility than this Outlook that is used by Hotmail. I need to schedule future events way out automatically on for instance the third Wednesday of each month, and the first weekday of each month. Do you plan to add this functionality to this hotmail version?
    Thanks,
    Mike

  8. CALENDAR

    When adding a 28 day schedule, it only allows daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. The option of every forth friday of the month is not acceptable, some months have 5 fridays.

  10. Add .ics-attachement to calendar

    In the old outlook, when an e-mail with a .ics-attachement was received, this could immediatley be added to the calendar.
    I did not find this option in the new version.

  14. Calendar personalizing

    - Can't invite other people to an event in the beta version?
    - Can't make any notes to an event (for myself if needed).
    - Can't choose that I NEVER want a reminder on any event.

  15. Beta Calendar needs to allow the details to be put in for appointments i.e. charms, catagorize, add links and documents.

    Add the functionality for deatails i.e. charms, catagorizing, adding links and documents, skype calls sharing, inviting... without it, Outlook becomes a pretty useless

  16. You removed the Work Week view. That's a deal breaker...

  17. Problem with viewing certain calendars

    My job requires that a lot of scheduling with multiple stakeholders. I am running into an issue where I am able to view some calendars and others I receive an error icon of an exclamation point. If I switch back to the old version, I am able to view all calendars with no error.

    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.

  18. Calender

    Your new calendar does not allow users to manually change repetition dates. Now you can only choose ever day, every week, every month, or every year. I have items that occurring every two weeks I'd like to add to my calendar (or somethings every three weeks) but you offer no way to do that.

    My suggestion is if you're trying to improve something... you add better functions, not take functions away from the old version. Seems like you're going backwards

  19. Bring Back Precise Times for Calendar Entries

    Until recently, I was able to set exact start and end times for calendar entries. This was the case even in the beta. Now, the beta seems to be forcing everything to 15 minute slots.

    My tee time on Wednesday is 4:52, not 4:45!!

  20. Not enough features to fast edit complete entry in calendar

    need more buttons to fast open a complete DETAIL edit form for entries in calendar. Outlook Beta is now more uncomfortable in this point as before.
