  2. Please keep the new Mail layout but revert back to the old calendar layout.

  4. Calendar is not syncing properly with my Outlook Calendar on my desktop computer and my phone.

    Get it to work properly! The events show up in the old version, but when I switch to beta some events go away and I'm not able to create new events.

  6. Modify weather locations

    I cannot add nor remove weather locations in the calendar, I must switch to non-beta version to do that. Why?

  7. Set email reminders on events

    Please restore email reminder functionality to calendar! I rely on this to keep track of my schedule and I'm now using Google calendar because I can't get this Outlook.com beta to send me email reminders.

  8. Add More Calendar Charms

    I would love to have a much wider selection of charms to choose from in the calendar. The tooth is great for my dentist appointment, but how about scissors for hair appointments? A selection of sports would really help too.

    In fact, the 34 choices in the beta do not even include all of the choices from the production calendar (e.g. soccer).

  9. Expand Calendar Color Choices

    The selection of colors for calendars is very limited, and the 9 choices given have several that look very similar. I would love more choices, or at least choices that are more distinct from each other.

  10. Today list on calendar month view missing

    Love the email section

    When using the beta calenadar, I no longer have today's calendar items on the right hand side on the month view.

    I prefer month view and to see today's list.

  11. Edit Appointments

    Unable to edit or change previously created appointments. It is very important to edit previous appointments as circumstances often change that warrants editing of appointments.

  12. Add/Edit Entries in Birthday Calendar

    With Outlook.com beta it appears I can no longer create new entries in the Birthday Calendar.
    Also, I can no longer edit existing entries in the Birthday Calendar to change the Reminder.
    If I leave the beta, I can again add new entries to the Birthday Calendar and edit existing entries to modify the reminders.
    Please bring this functionality to the Calendar beta.

  16. Icons on left panel

    The five or so icons (mail, calendar, contacts, etc.) are small and horizontal at the bottom on the alpha version but larger and vertical on the beta version - please can they be smaller and with the option of being horizontal (or vertical if the user wishes to move/hide them). Thanks.

  17. Enable connecting and syncing with Google calendar

    Merge with calendars from other providers (e.g. Google)

  18. windows 10 calendar app

    Shouldn't my outlook.com calendar basically mirror my calendar on Windows 10? If I'm signed in under my Microsoft account this stuff should be identical across platforms.

  19. Beta doesn't always show/support 'Remove series from calendar' option for accepting remove/cancel of calendar items

    In Beta, when I receive cancellation of a previously accepted calendar appointment from someone else, although messages list shows a cancel calendar icon when I actually view the message in main reading pane there is no button or option to remove that appointment from my calendar in Beta, whereas same messages work and display expected 'Remove series from calendar' button that I can click to perform expected action.

  20. Don't delete meeting invitations

    I received a meeting invitation with an attached .ics file. The message contained options to accept or decline the invitation. I accepted, and the message disappeared. I subsequently found it in the Deleted items folder. If this is intentional, it's a very strange idea and I would hope it won't happen again.
