The long-awaited Outlook.com calendar refresh has been released and is in the process of being rolled out.
Because the servers are grouped into hundreds of clusters, and only one cluster is upgraded at a time, if you do not see the refreshed calendar yet, please be patient it is on the way!
Improved UpdatingIn addition to a design refresh, improvements have been made to both navigating and accessing your calendar faster, including the following:
- add or or edit events with a single click
- enter an event by dragging your mouse across the time or date range
- add tasks without opening a new page
- jump to a particular day simply by clicking the date
Easy AccessAccessing your Outlook.com calendar is easy. From any address bar, just go to https://calendar.live.com/ and log on to your Microsoft account. If you are already logged on and checking your e-mail, contacts or files in SkyDrive, access to your calendar is click on the arrow to the right of the icon
then click the Calendar icon to see your calendar.
Connecting to your Outlook.com mail or calendar is also easy from your various mobile devices, including Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch or Android! Simple instructions are available at Mobile - Microsoft Windows.
While Waiting for the RefreshIf, like me, you are still waiting for the Calendar refresh, check out the Outlook Blog, Take control of your schedule with a modern calendar experience for Outlook.com. There are additional topics in the References, particularly for those who are new to Outlook.com.
