  1. Ability to copy an appointment

    It would be useful to be able to copy / duplicate an appointment, modifying the date and time on the new meeting. Especially useful for events that repeat unpredictably.

  3. Let me sync my catagories from outlook

    How stupid is it that the web app syncs the categories from outlook, but my ipad doesn't. My ipad only gives my 5 basic color categories - I use 14. This ipad can handle it let it sync the ones I already created.

  4. Calendar Sharing

    I'm a student at a university. I'm trying to share my class schedule (which I've programmed into my outlook calendar) with my employer. It would be nice to have the option to give myself permission to share it. Right now, either here or on the web I get a message that I don't have permission to send to that email address. It gives me the same message for all emails.

  7. Speed up the calendar

    When I try to browse the calendar, for instance, one week ahead the app stops and does not advance any longer. Example: today is Thursday the 21st of Aug. and I want to see what I might have scheduled for next Thursday, the 28th of Aug. and it will only scroll over to Monday or Tuesday before it stops and won't go any further. Data signal appears to be excellent.

  8. make phone #s clickable

    this is especially useful in calendar entries. See how iPhone calendar handles both phone #s and passcodes (conference calls). very frustrating and time consuming that this doesn't work.

  11. Entering a time for a meeting is awkward

    It could be improved by separating the minute entry into tens and units and by making the "buttons" smaller (eg 6 per screen, not 3)
    I've found analog time entry very easy in other apps.

  12. Managing other persons calendar

    I have yet been able to create, see details, or edit calendar events on a calendar that is off my account but managed by me. This is frustrating to me, especially since I am on the go so often. However it is nice to be able to at least view the calendar.

  13. Need to see other peoples calendars

    Iphone app does not enable one to see other peoples calendar when scheduling meet. This renders app useless and is a necessity.

  19. Events to calendar.

    Would be great if the mail client identified dates and had the 'Add to Calendar' functionality. Dates in emails would present as a hyperlink which if selected would give this prompt.

    Better than switching and typing everything out :-s

  20. Viewing Calendar Full Day Events

    Currently when you have more than 2 full day events in a calendar it will show the first two and then in small print it will show that are +1 more event or +2 more events depending on the number. However, I can not determine how to expand the full day events. It would be nice to have a setting that allows you to show all full day events. Expansion of the items would be a slight benefit but a secondary choice.
