  1. 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!!

  2. 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.

    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. Fix calender confusions

    I tried to use outlook as a "mailsoftware (fake-all)", had to give up on that idea because of to many problems, one of the problems was with the calendar. I had several calendars. The default calendar name i think showed in three places, all with the same name and very difficult to find out witch one is witch one, and not able to change names. So one i think was for outlook app, one for fake@outlook and one for fake-all. I would have wanted to use fake@ as the only on and the default calendar on fake-all. It should be…

  6. Filtered selection list for reasons why declining invite

    I am the EA to two SVP's at the company that I work at. It would be very helpful to provide a reason on the calendar invites as to why I am declining on their behalf, e.g. Conflict, Out-of-office, Vacation. It would be helpful to see the reason on the tracking status of the calendar invites, for those who are the meeting organizer.

  8. No E-mail option in the Calendar.

    Don't like that there's no E-Mail Option in the Calendar, at least not that I can find. All in all, this calendar seems harder to work with than the old one. Too skimpy, for lack of a better term.

  9. Bring Calendar appointment scheduling tools into Beta

    Allow the scheduling settings from the old Calendar to appear in the Beta, e.g. 'every 3 weeks' or 'every 2nd Thursday' are not possible in Beta;

    Beta options are 'every day/week/month/year' and that's it. I have to switch back to the old system to do anything else e.g. a fortnightly appointment.

  12. The new calendar is not ready for RTW. Where is the color-coding for meetings? How do you easily add participant emails for invitations?

  14. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    Calendar--what happened to inviting other people? Under the beta, I don't see any way to invite other individuals to the appointment.

  15. details

    -It's not possible to enter details (pictures, informations, ...)in a calendar entry because this field is missing.
    -It would be nice to move and/or copy a calendar entry to another calendar
    -Charms are missing.

    In summary the old version is better.

  17. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    In Outlook.com Beta you cannot access calendar item details. Switch back from beta and you can see the 'details' view for calendar items.

    Also - the ability to change the icon for appointments is great!

  18. Readd more advanced calendar event options in bigger window

    I miss the option to edit or create calendar events with more options in a bigger window, like a reminder per E-Mail. At least I couldn't find the option in the Beta.

    Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for a larger window for editing events, including a description, in the Outlook.com beta is now complete. If you refresh, you should be able to see the experience. In the meantime, we are working on enabling reminder emails.

  19. show as

    The "show as" function is missing. It is extremely helpful to mark your calendar item as: free, busy, away, tentative or working elsewhere.

  20. Change Calendar Groups

    I am unable to change a calendar event into a different group. I was able to before but that functionality seems to have disappeared.
