  1. Keep Notes Section In Calendar Event

    When making a calendar event in the current Outlook.com there is a section to add notes. This is missing in the Beta Calendar. Notes are visible in the Beta from entries made in the current Outlook.com Calendar but you are unable to edit them. I use the notes section to remind me of details about calendar events. The loss of this option would force me to use a different Calendar app/service.

      • Email reminders in Beta are not visible

        Thank you for finally putting email reminders into the Beta version of Calendar :-) However, unfortunately the Beta version it doesn't allow me to see the existing email reminders - there is a blue hyperlink, but nothing happens when I click on it. When I go from Beta back to Original calendar, I can see and edit the email reminders.

          • categories with colors in calendar

            I liked the previous feature of having categories with different colors in the calendar. Having colors makes it easier for me to know what should be done, compared to charms. eg have a red category for deadlines and a green for completed. that way i briefly scan my calendar page and i know all the information i need.

              Thanks for trying the Outlook.com beta! We’re excited to announce categories are now available in calendar to color-code your events.

              Right-click on an event and select “Categorize”.

                • Email Reminder Time Frame Too Limited

                  In the current outlook.com calendar there is an option to remind you of a calendar event at 5-6 different intervals within a hour and day. There is also the option to remind you at 1, 2, 3, days and 1 or 2 weeks. You can set up multiple reminders per calendar entry. For example you can have a reminder for an entry at 30 minutes, 4 hours, 2 days, or 2 weeks before the event. You can use one or all of those reminders.
                  Using the beta I created a calendar entry that only gave the option for 5 minutes…

                  • repeating or recurring events

                    Not enough flexibility scheduling repeating events. Can't schedule a repeating event every other week. Current Outlook provides excellent flexibility.

                          I cannot delete some calendars in outlook.com.

                          I have some secondary calendars in outlook.com. I tried to delete them, but it didn't work.

                                    Need an option to set default calendar for new events. I have a shared calendar which I'd like to set as default, but everytime I create a new event it starts within the Personal Calendar. Some version ago it was possible (like, the last calendar selected for the last event would have been the default calendar for new events)

                                      Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for creating events in a default calendar and enabling events to be moved between calendars in the Outlook.com beta is now complete. If you refresh, you should be able to see the experience.

                                    • I share a calendar across the family for each member, and I want to be able to put calendar entries on their calendar

                                      I would like to create calendar entries on my kids calendars (like I can now with the old interface). I'm using Edge on Win 10, and I do not see a 'calendar' selection. This is required for me to use this calendar … please add this back!

                                        • Can't edit an event

                                          Can't edit an event. If the event I'm trying to edit is at the end of the month (hence the bottom of the page), if the "edit" dialog box does show up, half of it shows up and the other half is off screen. And I can't scroll to submit any changes I make. Other times, I click an event to edit and the dialog box just never pops up.
