    The button to change between ways of setting calendar dates needs to be more obvious!

    When both my wife and I tried adding a new calendar entry it defaulted to using the "calendar" style method which can be really hard to use and easy to add an entry into the wrong date - and landed up being really annoying and confusiing.

    The alternate scrolling method (for non all-day entries)/mini calendar (for all-day entries) is much much easier and should probably be the initial default for users after the update.

    AND the app should also better highlight the button (that I have only just now found) that switches a user between these modes, maybe by having some form of explanatory popup the first time a user tries to add a new calendar entry.

    As difficult to notice unread messages that have been moved to other folders by rules, and as current badge reflects notifications that could already have been read on another device, the app should provide ways to easily see number of unread messages both when open and on the badge count.

    Similar to other items around the ability to see ALL of the relevant calendar information at a glance - currently the To-Do Bar only lists your personal calendar items. It would be much more useful if it could list either all the selected (open) calendars or ideally have the option to select WHICH calendars to show. This could also apply to the Calendar Peek.

    Similar to Windows 10 Mail/Calendar and Outlook on Android (and other types of connection in Outlook), please allow users to setup an "account name" for the mailboxes that they use rather than only allowing the full email address. Also allow users to say, as part of the account settings, whether the Calendar, Contacts, etc. should be visible in the client, and whether Groups should enabled or disabled on the account. This would allow users to keep their lists of folders, calendars, etc. much easier to navigate especially if they have more than one account that they access through Outlook.

    This is really important for many users of Shared Mailboxes. Seems like there are third party paid (subscription) solutions out there to deal with this (too costly for many) which tells you there is a real need for this (what should be simple) capability! This capability should also apply to delegated mailboxes as well as Shared Mailboxes. Given we are nearly 2 years on from this idea, with many other features being added to Outlook, it would be nice to get *some* feedback as to whether this is even being considered or simply just being ignored.

    I would also add that this is not just for outlook.com accounts but any (Office 365/Exchange/outlook.com) accounts with aliases, where a user may want to, for whatever reason, choose to use an alias that is not set as the default for their email account.

    This is a major issue with the way that the new outlook.com personal domains works.

    In the old Outlook.com Premium service, you could have the personal email address set as the Primary Account for your Microsoft Account, and this would work perfectly for all applications including Outlook Desktop.

    Now, with the supposedly improved service, if you have your personal account set as the Primary Account you get the issue of the email account appearing as "outlook_[long series of letters and numbers]@outlook.com" (also a request in UserVoice to fix this issue). You are therefore forced to set the Primary as an @outlook.com address, and then each time you compose an email in Outlook for Windows you have to set the default correctly! This is even more of an issue now that the legacy users of the old Premium service are being forced to migrate to the new service!

    There appears to be A COMPLETE lack of joined up thinking across the various teams on this --- given that the forced migration effectively is breaking users accounts, both issues (defaults and personal account names) should be fixed as a matter of urgency (ideally on both sides)... or, if this is not feasible, there should be an option to simply NOT install Outlook Desktop as part of Office 365 Home/Personal.

    Would also really like to see the ability to rename the "special" folders in Outlook desktop, or for it to use consistent folders with Exchange, etc. and as the Outlook for Android does (i.e. nice UK English names like Sent Items, Junk Email, Deleted Items... rather than the Sent, Trash and Spam often used on the source IMAP services).

    Also I'd like to be able to sync email from an account but NOT the calendar!

    If you have an outlook.com account, or an O365 account which you use JUST for Calendar and don't want any email going through it, you can't turn off the email part of the account - just have what you have on Windows Mail please.

    2nd the comment on this, and fir Android. The list of accounts is almost unusable when you have multiple accounts.

    For Android as well, together with optional 'profile' pictures for each account so you can actually tell which account is which easily

    When you have a few different email accounts, especially using the same service, it is not obvious which one is which. Being able to change the order of them so that the most used is first, and being able to add the name or even a custom icon/picture for each would make this much easier to use.
