  2. Outlook Calendar new reminder settings (ex: set as 5 minutes) are always default to 15 Minute for external meetings and delegate

    functional changes - Outlook Calendar new reminder settings (ex: set as 5 minutes) are always default to 15 Minutes. Please see below test scenarios.

    1) User C is external and sends an invitation to User A in Office 365. User A receives the invitation in calendar with 15 mins as reminder [default Exchange] disregarding user A default reminder, which is not correct.

    2- User B is a delegate to User A calendar :
    2-1 User B creates a meeting in User A calendar >>> Invitations will be received with the default reminder of User B (Organizer) disregarding user A reminder,…

  3. Display the calendar on the right side of main screen, along with my emails and folders displayed

    I would like the main Outlook screen to display the calendar on the right side of main screen and folders on the left side with my email subject lines in the middle. The same as it is for my work email. The main screen would have all the options showing at the same time for my choosing.

  4. Calendar

    Adjust calendar options as needed by day. For example, I work Monday Tuesday and Friday from 12-8 but Wed and Thursday 8-8, but outlook only allows the same hours every day

  5. Want to create a meeting schedule on the sub calendar when creating it from the Meeting with All option in Outlook client

    When viewing own calendar and another users’ calendar at the same time, if you send a meeting invitation by selecting the Meeting with All option, the item would be generated on the default calendar.
    I want to add the new meeting item on the sub calendar, not my calendar.

  6. We need the ability for adding attachments to Outlook Calendar events on iPhone.

    We work from our mobile devices thus we do not have access to a computer. At present it is impossible for adding documents to a Calendar event. When added via a computer we can see them on our mobile devices, but we cannot add attachments via mobile. Using Apple calendar and Google calendar we can attach files on mobile devices. Thus Outlook via mobile is extremely frustrating.

  7. Horizontal line representing current time often blocked

    The horizontal line that represents current time in the Calendar often gets blocked by an event, which makes it way less useful.
    Please consider bring that line to the front and maybe make it denser

    Thanks.

  8. Reminders in Notification List

    After the September 2019 interface change, Reminders no longer show in the Notifications list, only "likes". Please have them display in the Notifications list.

    I had added a secondary calendar to hold all my daily and weekly reminders, so that my main calendar view would not be cluttered. But, unless I display the secondary calendar, I receive no notification at all from this secondary calendar. Prior to the update, the notifications appeared in the Notification List, and I did not have to display the secondary calendar.

  9. Pin Calendar to Taskbar

    I have outlook.com pinned to my taskbar. I'd also like my outlook.com calendar pinned to my taskbar, but this does not appear to be possible.

  11. Work week view should have an option to start from "Today"

    Work Week view let's the user choose the starting day of the view - how ever this is static. It would be ideal if one could set "Today" as the start of the week and look at future events only - rather than past / expired events.

    This is more in line with how google calendar works.

  13. Implement a feature that meeting organizers could change invitation reply instead of attendees

    It would be great if meeting organizers could change attendees’ reply when needed. Because we would like to know attendances for the meeting before the meeting starts if someone took a day off. Also, we want to keep the organizers access permission as the Reviewer.

  15. Editing reoccurring calendar appointments

    It would be nice to be able to edit reoccurring calendar appointments without losing data from past appointments, or having to export your calendar to a .cvs and reimport it to keep the past data. Past calendar events are often used as a record and can have important data in them to reference, but if you need to edit the reoccurrence, you lose all of the previous data from the reoccurrence.

  16. Send Calendar Invites from Linked Personalized Domain

    Ability to send calendar invitations from “personalized domain” email linked to Outlook account. It’s unusual that I can send and receive emails and even login from a personalized domain but I can’t select that domain to send my calendar invites. Super confusing for people who get emails from one email and calendar invites from another. This is a pretty basic feature and it’s unbelievable it’s not in the offering.

  17. Only default calendar is checked

    Sometimes when I load my calendar view, it switches to having only the default calendar checked. I have four other calendars linked/imported, and it's annoying to have to check them again every time.

  18. HEX Codes for Calendars and Categoriy Colors

    Allow for custom colors of categories and calendars by allowing users to create colors based on HEX Codes (google calendar does this already so I'd love for you to blast them out of the competition)

  20. Mobile APIs of Outlook.com accounts should be exposed for third party calendar apps

    Mobile APIs of Outlook.com accounts not exposed for third party calendar apps. This prevents those apps from retaining the invitation mails after acceptance of invites from inside the calendar apps.
    This is not desirable.
    Retention of invitation mails is required as evidence for future.
    Microsoft must expose mobile APIs for outlook/ exchange accounts to be used by third party calendar apps to enable them retain the invitation mails after acceptance of invites inside the calendar apps..
