  2. Outlook.com Calendar app for Android and iOS

    There should be an Outlook.com calendar app in Android and iOS which allows other apps to be connected.

    Calendar UI needs some improvement by giving it a more modern look with better functionality.

  4. I wish for improved Recurrence options in the calendar.

    The Outlook calendar I use at work has a much better "Recurrence" facility than this Outlook that is used by Hotmail. I need to schedule future events way out automatically on for instance the third Wednesday of each month, and the first weekday of each month. Do you plan to add this functionality to this hotmail version?
    Thanks,
    Mike

  5. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! We have just released an option to switch to more saturated calendar colors in the new Outlook.

    If you would like to try out this experience, please click on the gear icon in the top right of your calendar module to access your settings, and toggle “Bold event colors”.

  7. 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.

  8. Calander does not show my categories that tells me what days to pay bills

  9. Add .ics-attachement to calendar

    In the old outlook, when an e-mail with a .ics-attachement was received, this could immediatley be added to the calendar.
    I did not find this option in the new version.

  10. solid background

    Since I use the calendar for my shift schedule (which consists of both recurring and one-time appointments that can span both single and multiple days) the multi-day events are more important to me and I need them to have a colored background box. While the old calendar could use a dedicated shift feature, the colored background box for multi-day events was decently useful. Having that replaced with the thin dotted lines makes it really bad for this purpose.

    For other people, though, things might be different. Why not give us the option to choose whether we want solid background colors…

  12. 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.

  13. Want Classic Back too!

    The colors on Classic were dark and distinct. Every entry I made was categorized and I could easily tell an appt, from something related to my daughters school to a simple reminder. Now with Beta the colors are all muted, pastel and on some entries, don't even exist. Why would you change it? It looks weak. At least bring back the vibrant colors option.

  16. Unable to edit calendar events effectively in Beta version, pop up is too small.

    Beta version looks good, except its hard to edit calendar items, as the pop up is very small in the Beta version.
    The original version gave you a big pop up that you can read the entire contents and edit as needed. The Beta version is too small to edit effectively.

  17. 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)

  18. New feedback from Outlook.com (React)

    In Outlook.com Beta you cannot access calendar item details. Switch back from beta and you can see the 'details' view for calendar items.

    Also - the ability to change the icon for appointments is great!

  19. Change Calendar Groups

    I am unable to change a calendar event into a different group. I was able to before but that functionality seems to have disappeared.
