new calendar event shortcut has gone in beta
In the beta version of Outlook Mail, the option has gone to 'create calendar event', via the drop down arrow next to the button for 'new' mail.
I found this really useful and a very easy way of adding a new event to my calendar without switching tabs to my calendar. Please bring it back!
New Event button does not fit and is replaced with ...
Make calendar shortcut more accessible. Now it is hidden and it is necessary to click
1) open upper left menu
2) more apps
The top bar is only occupioed by the menu icon, "Outlook" label and a search box.
Why to Make calendar shortcut more accessible by putting it here?

In the current version, the New button has a dropdown from which I get to choose email or appointment.
In beta, this feature is gone. I get New message button if I am in the email and New appointment button if I am in the Calendar.
This makes me to switch from Email view to Calendar View in order to create an appointment.
I wish the old functionality comes back.
Also create TASK. From an open email we should be able to create a calendar event or a task.
I have Quick Step buttons to do this in Outlook 365 and I use them all the time.
