  2. 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.

  3. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    What on earth have you done to the Calendar under this Beta edition. No categories and no ability to send an email. Please get it sorted.

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

  7. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    How do you add further detail to your Calendar appointments? The old version had a box you could type further details in.

  9. 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.

  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…

  11. 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.

  12. repeating or recurring events

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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
