    Went to add in a new appointment to my calendar through the website, and noticed there was nothing on Wednesday despite the live tile on my phone saying there was.

    Turns out on the live tile it was an event from Facebook which is fine, so why does it not show on my calendar on outlook.com? If you can connect to Facebook for my contacts, for messaging, why on earth can you not pull down my Facebook events into my calender?

    On the old calendar, the different types of events (Facebook, etc.) were color coded; additionally, one could select which events (Facebook vs. Live vs. Calendar) would show up. All those controls were available on the left-hand sidebar, which is now missing.

    Lean & mean is one thing, but taking away what were great features and going minimalist retro is not the way to go.

    OH BLOODY HELL!!! Can you add the 4-week view already???? Is it REALLY THAT MUCH OF A FREAKING HASSLE?????

    It's the end of April, and April is all I see. I can' t see into the beginning of May and the end of April at one time--

    AGAIN--HOW IS IT NEW AND IMPROVED WHEN IT'S MISSING SOME OF THE FEATURES OF THE OLD CALENDAR???

    FOR CRIPES SAKE!

    U can now use outlook 2013 with hotmail. It has hotmail connector built in. outlook 2013 has a 4 week view. Another option is to look at the week view. Lastly you can easily switch back and forth between months :)

    That still does not solve the problem of why the current offering does not do the same things as the previous offering. I don't have Outlook. Why the need to use work-arounds in the first place? If I wanted to use Outlook 2013, I'd get Outlook 2013. The previous online Hotmail calendar met my needs just fine. This is like switching from Windows 7 features and reverting to Windows 95. There's no rhyme nor reason to it.

    Give me something I can work with.
