Frequently Asked Questions on the new “Events from email” feature in Outlook.

Q. I don’t want events automatically added to my calendar, how do I turn it off?
A. You can configure this feature in Outlook.com by clicking on the Settings (gear) icon and going to Options > Calendar > Events from email. This will also disable email reminders from being sent to you prior to your event.

Q. The time for the event looks incorrect on my calendar?
A. On your calendar, events are shown in your local time zone and not the event time zone. Check your time zone setting in Outlook.com > Calendar Settings > Events from email by clicking on the Settings (gear) icon.

Q. How do I report an error or missing details in the events that Outlook found?
A. Navigate to the original email where Outlook found events > click on "Not Useful" under the event summary on top > followed by "Report an issue".

Q. What kinds of events can Outlook detect and add to my calendar?
A. Outlook now supports travel bookings (flight, hotel, and rental car); package deliveries; entertainment events and dining reservations; and bill payments and invoices, when sent from supported providers. We’re working on supporting more providers and new types of events.

Q. If I share my calendar with someone, will they see my flight or package information?
A. Only if you want them to. The events are marked private by default, so the details will not be visible to someone with whom you shared your calendar. You can change the default at Outlook.com > Calendar Settings > Events from email by clicking on the Settings (gear) icon.

Q. Can I edit the events Outlook added to my calendar?
A. Currently, delete is the only action supported on auto-created events.

Q. Can I forward the events Outlook added to my calendar to my family and friends?
A. Yes. Find the event on your calendar and choose "Share via email". This my not be enabled for all users yet, so please be patient while we work on bringing this to everyone.

Q. How do I print the email without the Outlook event summary on top?
A. With the email open, chose Print from the Outlook menu under "…" instead of using browser print option

Q. I have a question about my flight, hotel, car, package, event, dinner reservation, or bill payment?
