Calendar 1

While the changes like personalization options are so welcome, some changes don’t make lots of sense. Calendar to Mail integration & vice-versa has gone missing from the UI. Even the Hamburger Menu has too many accounts and folders options and many ways to do similar task or reaching to same place. I mean it can be more intuitive.

      Not sure, but it’s fine on my devices. May be a reset helps.

    Nice change on the collours and dark theme in outlook. My callender keeps crashing on launch, wich is not nice.

    • Kamal

      try a soft reset.

      • Roy Nagel

        Thanks, allready tried that but without succes. Maybe a hard reset. Or I wait for the next build, maybe coming out next week?

    This is a HUGE improvement over the previous versions. Now bring back the Unified Inbox and give us better subfolder handling and we’ll be on to something.

      No doubts over the improvements, as it looks like a big overhaul. But two points that I mentioned above need some changes, IMO.
