  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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. repeating or recurring events

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

  10. 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…

    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.

  15. default calendar

    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)

  16. calendar invites

    In the new BETA of outlook.com calendar there is no way to invite others to a calendar event. If that is not resolved I will be forces to leave outlook.com entirely. I love Outlook.com but this is THE calendaring system for all of us, and without being able to share and invite it will not work

  18. calendar event description

    I was unable to add event description. Is it possible now? Only title, place, time, repetition, reminder is available. Option to add/edit event description is must-have. Otherwise it looks and works fine.

  19. 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!
