  3. seting work hours for graves in calendar

    We work night shift and graves, outlook will not let me schedule Our shifts, 4:30 PM to 4:.30 AM. Pop up box says, "The date you entered occurs before the start date". I get it. But there is not even an option for it to be set from 4:30PM to Midnight, than Midnight to 4:30 AM. I'm here for the whole shift and if I don't change it on the calendar it gives the false impression of when I am and when I am not available. Plus getting scheduled for a meeting when I should be sleeping is a pain!!

  4. 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.

  6. Family calendar is broken

    Family calendar is broken! I add an event to it from outlook web and it can either create it and disappears shortly or output an error message with no description. The same is true for outlook app for android.
    What the ****? This behavior is not acceptable, is just bad software. I'm thinking to switch calendars to a competitor....

  8. Agenda pane options

    Please allow me to switch "Agenda Pane" on or off in "Settings." I know a lot of people like it but I don't use it and it makes my calendar too narrow. It is especially annoying when it opens just to tell me I don't have anything going on that day. I am smart enough to read my calendar and figure that out.

  15. transfer meeting ownership

    Transfer Meeting Ownership.

    Often, I create meetings for projects, but then I transfer project ownership to someone else. Rather than having to cancel my meetings and have the new owner re-create the same meeting, I would like to be able to simply transfer ownership for a seamless integration.

  16. calendars week days varying width

    The beta Version of Outlook.com Calendar in weekly overview shows the days of the week all differently wide (current day broadest, next day second broadest, day before very narrow ...etc.). I can not describe to you how much I hate this ugly and very unnecessary feature. What is worse, I can't change it in the settings. So, because I want the week days to be displayed with even width like a sane person, I have to go back to the old version.

  17. Make adjusting search filter dates easier

    Please allow manual enter of dates -> being blocked from just typing makes looking at previous dates in the past painful when forcing users to have to use the calendar arrows - or see gmail how there search adds the data to the search text and you can edit it there.

  18. Ability to edit auto generated calendar invite

  19. I wish events in Calendar could stay in Calendar for ever (as an option, at least)

    In my outlook.com the events stays in the calendar for some months, and then disappear. For me it would be great to have all old events still.

  20. classic

    Try the beta is a trick, we can't go back to classic. There was a post about this and it was locked. The new calendar is useless. It has a lot of un needed features that slows down the usage to the point it is not a tool that help increase productivity anymore. It is also full of bugs. At the very least you could let us go back to the classic Calendar.
