    I have to use third party apps for Calendar. It drives me nuts that built-in apps don't work as expected.

    I get an update every few days. The most updated app ever. WTF are they doing with a simple calendar/email app?

    Another day, another update... Version 17.7705.42038.0. The tile did update on it's own as soon as it finished updating, so maybe...

    Don't hope too much, I had same feeling after many updates back when I had the problem. :( Only WDRT helped me, and now I just try not to mess around those settings to much.

    Outlook mail and calendar live tile will only work if you update the build but once hard reset it will not work again.

    What I do is use WRDT to go back to WP8.1 then update to WP10 and hard reset and update all apps then update the build and everything works fine so far. L830 here.

    Yes, exactly that, but the hard reset must be done on the build .107, that is on the Threshold 2/1511 version. On Redstone 1/1607 hard reset shouldn't he done not even once.

    The whole point here is that resetting your phone and following a procedure to get it working is not the answer. This should work either way. I'm still using RS1, so the issue must be with the app as it's the only tile that's not working. If I was on RS2, then I would expect it to be buggy.

    You're right, it's all because of app, but still - the described steps solve the issue.

    I don't think it's the app because if you update directly to the latest build 448 without updating the apps and hard reset the live tile will not work but if you update to the latest app on build 107 the live tile will work fine.

    The app should work on the latest build, regardless. So it is the app that's the issue. All the other tiles work fine. Like I said before, if I was on a preview build, I would expect this, but I came off the preview builds to the production build and I'm still seeing bugs.

    It just looks like the app is unable to setup everything right while on Redstone 1 for the tile to work properly. (Hope I said it well.) If you set it up earlier, than it's fine, but if not (which is the case when you do a hard reset on Redstone 1) - you get in trouble. So - an app issue.

    Outlook Calendar got an update on my phone, now it's on version 17.7705.42038.0, and the tile works significantly better. Now it updates instantly after I make some changes to events and leave Outlook Calendar!

    How does it work for you guys? I hope this version solves the issue with the tile not updating automatically?

    Still not working. As soon as the tile needs to update (event ends or date changes at midnight) the tile goes back to standard tile. I've even tried to add an event when the tile is showing information, but the event never appears. I have to resize the tile to show it.

    Don't hard reset and the other hints mentioned here. The problem is in the App, broken beyond repair. I get an update every few days, and they never get it right.

    Live tiles are a prime feature of W10M. They don't work correctly. Go figure what that means for the whole OS.

    The thing with WDRT solves the issue. The only question left is whether this is too much effort for someone or not. I spent hours in reinstalling Windows 10 Mobile on my Lumia 532 and all apps i used to have manually. But I think it was worth it. Everybody should decide for themselves, but I agree this is something Microsoft should fix. Only I was waiting since July for Microsoft to fix this issue...

    With hard resets and reinstalling you don't fix the problems. You just work for many hours for a feeling of "it works for me now". The buggy SW is still there and the bugs will come back. It is not YOUR job to fix what MS has broken. It is basically impossible.

    Yes, I don't fix the problem with WDRT, but I make it work on my phone. And I completely agree with you, the bug is still there, I have only removed the symptoms on my phone, plus I still need to avoid doing hard resetting it for the symptoms not to come back. Were still waiting for Microsoft to fix this bug.

    Some recent updates from Microsoft to the Mail platform I think is making a lot of shaking in all the devices and even in the Outlook web, so maybe ti's related partially with it.

    Honestly, I don't understand what is so difficult with live tiles that they can't fix it over many months. A moderate programmer should be able to implement this in a day or two.

    Laziness, carelessness, incompetent programmers... You choose. I think they just didn't give enough attention to this issue, but they have to fix this before moving on with adding new features.

    For example, Microsofts Skype for Android doesn't have an option to change IM notification sound for five years now, while the default notification sound is too silent.

    I can confirm that, thanks for the post ! I spent almost one day trying to fix that by many hard reset attempts On my other older phone it works because of regular updates. Now I got a new one. It worked after first update to .448 version but there was another issue, creating a new email and typing into To field did not invoke the people contact list so I decided to hard reset ... and you know the rest of the story.

    I'll wait whether the tuesday's regular update next week fixes that before going the WDRT path.

    I don't get why Microsoft can't fix such easily reproducible bug. Is there any way to report it ?

    You can report it in the feedback hub. Or from the Outlook app, just tap on the feedback button... But I think that this issue has been reported by million of users since July or even before. I think I have tread that users has this issue even back in April it May when they released Redstone 1 to insider preview.

    Does it mean that a monthly "patch tuesday" update won't fix it ? Does the "will only work if you update the build" applies to any build (it just needs to go through the update process to fix that) or a pre Redstone 1 one is required as a starting point ? It is Lumia 650 so there is no way going back to 8.1.
