  2. Microsoft 365 Calendar - Appointment Sorting

    Microsoft 365 Calendar should sort appointments in chronological order, from the top of the date cell (earliest appointments) to the bottom (later appointments). I currently see a 10 AM appointment listed below my 2 PM, and 6 PM appointments. Would make much more sense to see appointments listed in the order the events will occur.

  4. Ordered daily events that are not associated with specific time.

    Allow creating ordered events in Calendar that are both not associated with certain time and not full day events. This is useful if creating a daily plan. Things you should do in order. But not exactly sure the time it would take.

  7. Provide summary of dates that were added after an .ics file is imported.

    When adding an .ics file, have the ability to provide a summary of the events added. The user has to go look for it in the calendar and it would be easy way for a malicious actor to hide something in the calendar w/o the user knowing it wasn't added properly or it was added maliciously. For example I can create an .ics file to block out a specific day and time w/o the user realizing that the original .ics file didn't correspond to what they thought it would be and have no way of knowing after it was added.

  10. Need email reminders that are both custom AND recurring

    When setting up an email reminder for a calendar entry, why can’t I choose the exact number of days prior to the event that I will receive the reminder? I can choose a date with the custom option, but then that reminder will only work for that entry, not future recurring entries. I can also choose the default options, but I need reminders that are more specific. Why isn’t this an option?

  11. Entry of time in calendar event session

    Outlook for desktop, Google web calendar allow users to have quick input of the time without the need to include a semi-colon, e.g. 0958, 1452, 2207.

    The system understand the input and automatically convert to proper presentation after the input cursor left the column.

    I wish this features can be included as part of the next update of Outlook on the web.

  12. Many loops to get right time zone at first setup

    Why is it so hard to get the right time zone when first setting up an account? It's a "required" task and a terrible introduction. I change the General setting to UK time, but it sets the Calendar work time to UTC+0. Then I can't change the Working timezone. Unless I change the General timezone to something else that's wrong. Then If I change everything back, in the right order, eventually I get there. Sheesh.

  14. Stop opening the calendar sidebars by default

    Stop opening the calendar sidebars by default! If I close them, I want them close every time I open the calendar, not just one time!

  17. Recurring Event Custom Email Reminder Flexibility

    For recurring events, I would appreciate the ability to set email reminders as a specific number of hours, days, or weeks before or after the event. The current custom email reminder option only allows me to pick a single date & time, so it is useful for only one occurrence of the event, not all of the occurrences.

  20. Calendar bug - Double click creates event on next day.

    In the calendar, if I double click on a day to create a new event, the date defaults to the next day.
    I would expect it to default to the day I double clicked on.
