  1. CALENDAR NOTICES SHOW REYKJAVIK

    PROBLEM BEFORE BETA VERSION: I share my calendar with my wife; we both have Microsoft web email/calendar accounts; when I receive notification from Microsoft that she has entered a calendar item, the notice gives the time of the item for the cities of Reykjavik and Monrovia (Iceland and Liberia), not Central Daylight Time here in Kirksville, Missouri 63501. Three Microsoft Support folks tried to solve the problem but were unable to do so; the last one was Jason D. on April 13, 2017. Ultimately he determined the problem was on Microsoft's end, not mine, but that the update to the…

  2. calendar entries missing

    I am almost sure this is linked to the beta version upgrade. The synch to anything Outlook (calendar, mail, contacts) stopped working on my Huawei phone 18th November. I have lost all calendar entries except the recurring ones (lesson learnt: don't keep you calendar entries in Outlook) and am very annoyed. When I log in to Outlook on-line, mail is there, I have the contacts but only have the recurring calendar entries. Any suggestions for recovering these entries?

    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.

  4. Problem with viewing certain calendars

    My job requires that a lot of scheduling with multiple stakeholders. I am running into an issue where I am able to view some calendars and others I receive an error icon of an exclamation point. If I switch back to the old version, I am able to view all calendars with no error.

  7. Fix calender confusions

    I tried to use outlook as a "mailsoftware (fake-all)", had to give up on that idea because of to many problems, one of the problems was with the calendar. I had several calendars. The default calendar name i think showed in three places, all with the same name and very difficult to find out witch one is witch one, and not able to change names. So one i think was for outlook app, one for fake@outlook and one for fake-all. I would have wanted to use fake@ as the only on and the default calendar on fake-all. It should be…

  8. Filtered selection list for reasons why declining invite

    I am the EA to two SVP's at the company that I work at. It would be very helpful to provide a reason on the calendar invites as to why I am declining on their behalf, e.g. Conflict, Out-of-office, Vacation. It would be helpful to see the reason on the tracking status of the calendar invites, for those who are the meeting organizer.

  10. No E-mail option in the Calendar.

    Don't like that there's no E-Mail Option in the Calendar, at least not that I can find. All in all, this calendar seems harder to work with than the old one. Too skimpy, for lack of a better term.

  13. weather settings not sticking

    I turn off weather in the settings and it doesn't show in the calendar. If I go to another view and come back it is back on again.

    Going into the settings page the radio buttons for weather are not filled in like it is using the wrong settings

  17. Toggeling to next/previous week by clicking on up/down Buttons is NOT intuitive! Keep left/right arrow buttons & show them more "prominent".

    Toggeling to next/previous week or month by clicking on up/down Buttons is NOT intuitive! Keep left/right arrow buttons & show them more "prominent" cause it's a frequently used function in the calendar.

  20. calendar

    The new Calendar is really a half baked product. I couldn't find any way to add other meeting attendants. I also tried to update title for a recurring event and it didn't work.

    I kow I am using a beta version. But it should has full functionalities at least. Please have higher bar to push new features to beta.
