calendar event description

I was unable to add event description. Is it possible now? Only title, place, time, repetition, reminder is available. Option to add/edit event description is must-have. Otherwise it looks and works fine.

    the classic had the option to ad description to a colander item. that is gone in the beta. I use it to ad extra info or emails about the event.

    In the old calendar, I could create a new event and populate all the details such as the reminder time etc. I can't do that in the new calendar. I have to create the event first, then open it to edit the details.

    It's not clear to me in the new beta view how to add a Description to an event (in order to add more details to a created or existing event).

    Why did you REMOVE THE DESCRIPTION FOR CALENDAR INVITES?

    Is there seriously no way to add notes at _all_ to an invite, other than using the subject?!

    The notes/description field for calendar events is missing from the beta Outlook Calendar. I hope that this will be rectified before the beta goes live.

    The "description" field is really indispensable! In this Beta version, the only way to add note on an event is to set it inside the event title field, which is absolutely not convenient.

    Yes, It is important!
    If i would like to add description to my created event, I can't edit the descroiption. I think it is important to can add or modify the description of the event.
