  1. 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.

  2. edititing/ modifying recurring events

    I made this comment but someone marked it as COMPLETED. It is NOT completed. What I have requested is not done. When I modify/ delete an even in the series - the option to MODIFY/ DELETE just this event and following event is not coming - there is only option to modify/ delete CURRENT EVENT or ENTIRE SERIES - there should be a third option to modify/ delete CURRENT AND FUTURE EVENTS without modifying/ deleting the past events. So here is my comment again:

    Hello,

    When modifying/ deleting repeat events there should be an option to modify/ delete/ apply change…

  3. Calendar categories

    In the old calendar, when right-clicking on an event and selected categories, I got a drop-down/sub menu that listed all the categories with a scrollbar. This allowed me to set any category using only the mouse. In the beta, a limited list of categories is displayed, requiring me to type to get a category that wasn't listed. Why remove the scrollbar?

  4. multi-deletion of calendar items

    It is essential to have a multi-delete function in calendar, similar to what exist in contacts, so we can delete all those irritating birthday notifications (via email, via mobile phone and seeing those on the outlook.com is even more irritating, and obstruct the real essential calendar items. So have a search field on the calendar and then a SELECT ALL button to delete. Thanks

  8. Outlook App for iOS and Android Needs Calendar Search Features

    Outlook App for iOS and Android Needs Calendar Search Features. We are being asked to un-enroll Outlook App deployment and bring back Active Sync making us insecure because of this issue. If attorneys cannot search court dates using Outlook App, the Outlook App is useless.

    We need this feature like YESTERDAY

  12. Change the organiser/admin of existing Outlook appointment series

    This would be helpful in case someone leaves the company or changes his function internally and has reserved certain meetingrooms with an appointment series. Right now the current organiser has to cancel the series and at the same time the other person who takes over needs to send a new invitation. However there are always problems with this method and it's quite time consuming to copy the series manually. Would also be a nice feature to have for general appointments.

  13. Calendar reminder does not work

    Your calendar, in theory improved, does not send remind email. This is very unfortunate. It was working perfectly well, and suddenly I missed few things (to call doctor for my chirurgical intervention set up date for example) because I blindly believe for that reminder. Will make adjustments quickly?

  15. Subscribed ICAL web url calendars no longer synchronizes after Sepmtember 18th

    Subscribed ICAL web url calendars no longer synchronizes after Sepmtember 18th Outlook.com update. It had worked for more than one year. I also tried to subscribe the same calendar in different Microsoft Account and it doesn't work either. Note the ICAL web link itself is ok. You broke it, fix it.

  18. decline invitation but keep it on agenda (as free)

    Would be really nice and useful to have a option to decline an invitation but keep it on agenda (as free) if some change later allow you to attend or if you need to keep in mind this meeting is going on (for debriefing or whatever other reason).
    Answering by "Tentative" is not an option as it is not clear for the meeting coordinator.

  20. To show more enents in one cell of the month calendar

    To show more events in one cell of the (month) calendar than two. Now there is possibility to see only two events and digit with number of hidden events. It could be useful to see more events than two using smaller panels or even icons. At the time to see full description of the event in pop-up menu when pointed by mouse.
