    Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to write to us.

    You might enjoy the new Outlook experience more with a few changes to your settings, which you can find by clicking the gear icon. Try changing the setting for Conversation view to Off, changing the setting for Reading pane to Hide, and changing the setting for Attachment preview to Off.

    We’re always interested in new ideas, but we need some more specific feedback to fix the problem for you. If you have more detailed suggestions, please update your idea or add a new one.

    You might also find this help article useful: aka.ms/outlookcombetahelp. It has some simple steps to fix common problems.

  2. Bring Back Precise Times for Calendar Entries

    Until recently, I was able to set exact start and end times for calendar entries. This was the case even in the beta. Now, the beta seems to be forcing everything to 15 minute slots.

    My tee time on Wednesday is 4:52, not 4:45!!

  4. The new calendar is not ready for RTW. Where is the color-coding for meetings? How do you easily add participant emails for invitations?

  6. show as

    The "show as" function is missing. It is extremely helpful to mark your calendar item as: free, busy, away, tentative or working elsewhere.

  9. Bring back ability to change calendar for existing event

    If I create an event and then decide I want the event on a different calendar (like a shared one), I can't change it. This used to be an option. I have to recreate if from scratch on the the other calendar and then delete the first one.

  11. Add EasyJet flight emails to calendar automatically

    Hi, easyjet flight emails are not being added automatically to calendar because they are being sent from donotreply@easyjet.com and not from any of the email addresses you have on your list of supported services and respective email addresses. Can you please fix this? Thanks.

  12. CALENDAR

    When adding a 28 day schedule, it only allows daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. The option of every forth friday of the month is not acceptable, some months have 5 fridays.

  16. Calendar personalizing


    • Can't invite other people to an event in the beta version?

    • Can't make any notes to an event (for myself if needed).

    • Can't choose that I NEVER want a reminder on any event.

  17. Beta Calendar needs to allow the details to be put in for appointments i.e. charms, catagorize, add links and documents.

    Add the functionality for deatails i.e. charms, catagorizing, adding links and documents, skype calls sharing, inviting... without it, Outlook becomes a pretty useless

  18. Outlook Calender Difficult to Read

    The new "Minimalist" style calender is very difficult to read. There are no gridlines or spacing to separate dates.
    The small/ thin lines denoting multiple-day events are too difficult to distinguish when you have multiple all day events.

  19. You removed the Work Week view. That's a deal breaker...

  20. Could not change dates on recurring items in the beta for Calendar.

    I was unable to change dates on repeating scheduled events in my calendar without logging out of the beta and back into my old calendar.

    For example, I retired recently and wanted to update and change dates in my calendar I had set to remind me about paying bills. My check comes on the 21st of the month and I wanted to schedule any payments I needed to make prior to the 21st to occur on a date after the 21st (for cash flow purposes).

    Couldn't change the repeating date the way I wanted in the beta without going back…
