I have an idea for the Calendar. When displaying a "Month", I think I would generally find it far more convenient if I could see the two weeks prior and the two weeks following - rather than just the calendar month we are in. The current display gives me the same information on the first of the month, as on the thirty-first. This isn't always useful, since I want to see different information when looking at my calendar on these different days. If I can't see what I have planned for next week - or even for the weekend - because it's cutoff by the end of the month, I don't find the display particularly useful.
Generally, I might want to check up on the date something happened last week, or the date I need to do something in the next week or two. An option to have your calendar-month view swapped to "2 weeks prior to 2 weeks ahead", would be extremely beneficial.
This is coming in the new version of Outlook.com. If you don’t already see it, you should soon see “Reply all by meeting” in the drop-down menu next to “Reply” when you click on a specific email. Hope that fits your needs. Thanks for the feedback.
Agree with stein and Daniel:
Please don't make it just a meeting invite - I use it more for my own appointments, doctor visits and the like, etc.
I just want a button that:
1) opens a calendar event,
2) imports the text of the current email into the description/details (or gives the option to do so),
3) looks for an address to populate the location with
4) looks for a date & time to fill in appropriate fields.
Even if half the date/time items are wrong, I'm MORE than halfway done!
Thanks for your feedback – this is something that we are working on and will be available shortly in the new outlook.com UI. (https://blogs.office.com/2015/05/21/new-ways-to-get-more-done-in-outlook-com/?linkId=14413035) Stay tuned.
Maps integration in general. Right now if I open a meeting on my phone, I almost have to type them into my default maps app to get directions. This is silly.
When I open an item on my android (or other) phone, it would make sense if the location was tap-able (w/o editing the item) and would automatically load itself in my default mapping app when tapped.
Would this be possible?
