  1. Keep Notes Section In Calendar Event

    When making a calendar event in the current Outlook.com there is a section to add notes. This is missing in the Beta Calendar. Notes are visible in the Beta from entries made in the current Outlook.com Calendar but you are unable to edit them. I use the notes section to remind me of details about calendar events. The loss of this option would force me to use a different Calendar app/service.

  3. categories with colors in calendar

    I liked the previous feature of having categories with different colors in the calendar. Having colors makes it easier for me to know what should be done, compared to charms. eg have a red category for deadlines and a green for completed. that way i briefly scan my calendar page and i know all the information i need.

  7. Calendar events only display as dots on the date of the event; there is no event description

  8. Email Reminder Time Frame Too Limited

    In the current outlook.com calendar there is an option to remind you of a calendar event at 5-6 different intervals within a hour and day. There is also the option to remind you at 1, 2, 3, days and 1 or 2 weeks. You can set up multiple reminders per calendar entry. For example you can have a reminder for an entry at 30 minutes, 4 hours, 2 days, or 2 weeks before the event. You can use one or all of those reminders.
    Using the beta I created a calendar entry that only gave the option for 5 minutes…

  11. Low-contrast colors in Outlook.com Beta Calendar

    The color scheme used by the new Outlook.com Beta Calendar - particularly on the Month view, which this feedback is referring to - is a huge step backwards in user-friendliness and accessible design.

    I make extensive use of categories in my calendar, with each category using a different color. With the pre-beta Outlook.com Calendar, the calendar appointments on the Month view were displayed as a solid, high-contrast, rectangular block of bold color with the title in bold text inside the block. The colors and styling closely matched those used in the Outlook 2016 desktop client, which made it very easy…

    Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for an option to switch to more saturated calendar colors in the new Outlook is now complete.

    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”.

  12. Multiple Email Reminder

    Please add Multiple Email Reminder option while booking an event - this was always there in your old design/format.

    Hey everyone, we actually support email reminders in the new version of Outlook!

    First, click on the calendar event to open it up. Then you will see a bell that says “Remind me:”. Click on “Remind me:” to open the reminder option menu. In order to add an email reminder, scroll to the bottom of that menu and click on “Add email reminder”, You can then add as many email reminders as you want!

  13. Calendar notifications not visible

    Hello,
    I like the new look, however in this beta version I don't receive reminders or calendar notifications (the pop-up window does not appear on the screen anymore). And in the top right corner the Notifications / Skype buttons are no longer there.

    Thank you

  15. repeating or recurring events

    Not enough flexibility scheduling repeating events. Can't schedule a repeating event every other week. Current Outlook provides excellent flexibility.

  18. Bring back flight details

    Some time last year you all added flight details to the top of booking confirmation emails. I really liked it! That made it super easy to figure out the important information like booking reference number and flight number etc. Please bring it back.

    Thanks - a Microsoft employee

  19. calendar invites

    In the new BETA of outlook.com calendar there is no way to invite others to a calendar event. If that is not resolved I will be forces to leave outlook.com entirely. I love Outlook.com but this is THE calendaring system for all of us, and without being able to share and invite it will not work

  20. Email reminders in Beta are not visible

    Thank you for finally putting email reminders into the Beta version of Calendar :-) However, unfortunately the Beta version it doesn't allow me to see the existing email reminders - there is a blue hyperlink, but nothing happens when I click on it. When I go from Beta back to Original calendar, I can see and edit the email reminders.
