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.
Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for notes in a calendar event in the Outlook.com beta is now complete. If you refresh, you should be able to see the experience.
Please bring back the Notes field.

Why cannot I add text details to my calendar entries in the beta version?! Infuriating.
What happened to the Detail panel in the new updated (NOT) Calendar? Rather than simply deleting a calendar entry once the event expires, I simply edit the event and change the date. Information I have in the Detail pane is always carried over. Old calendar events with data in the Detail pane are still there, but you are unable to edit or change the data.
So,, is this Less is better software update a good thing?
Agree with the comments, without this feature, the Appointment feature in Outlook Beta is next to unusable.
No ability to add notes to calendar events.

Outlook.com no longer allows details in the calendar entries - WHY?! This does you a big disservice.

Add "Edit Details" to Current Beta of Outlook.com Calendar "+ New Event"
I do not like the new calendars! They erased some of my dates. This calendar does not have room for notes. The calendar will not allow to schedule every other week like before. New calendar sucks!
A new calendar item - where is the Notes section? Many of my calendar entries are useless without being able to add relevant details/notes. A heading alone doesnt cut it. Please, a Notes section when creating new entry, forget the Location, what use is that
What did you do to the calendar??? The note section disappeared. I can't even add details to a meeting. This is now unusable.
Calendar events needs a notes section and invitees
I cant seem to find how to Add notes or Details to my calendar events.

I like the look and the layout of Beta. The drawback is that I can't find how to add notes to calendar events. Keep up the good work
There seems to be in no way to add Notes to Calendar events in the Outlook beta.
The calendar no longer allows you to enter notes, nor invite people to attend a meeting.

Unless I'm missing something blindingly obvious, the beta calendar view for individual calendar items appears to have no ability to:
- Enter a detailed description
- Set free/busy status
- Set an appointment as Private
- State what timezone the meeting should be created in
- Invite other people to a meeting
In other areas, there is:
- No longer a "Work Week" view
- No ability to create a new calendar
- No way to share a calendar
- No longer the very helpful "today" view pane on the right of the Month view
- Only 3 items per day displayed in the month view instead of 4
- A "hamburger" menu displayed in the top left of the screen. All this does is to hide the left pane. Hamburger menus are normally used to indicate an actual menu, not something normally handled via left/right arrows.
I hope you see this as helpful criticism, but you need to know that there is no way I would consider switching permanently to the beta calendar view. it is simply too restrictive to be useful.

I miss adding NOTES to calendar ! ???
While I too miss the Notes, I have to ask the development team why they are working on an issue with only 34 votes when there are several with several hundred votes.

Descriptions added in the stable Outlook.com, cannot be edited also.

Adding New Event to Outlook Calendar online: When I create a new event in calendar, I do no longer see an option to add additional information such as a "Note" field. Please restore this feature to the calendar when you add a New Event.
