    • Calendar Live-Title should display more events, also lockscreen

      It should display more events not only one with time and other info. Lots of unused space there. Give live to live title, display more.

      • Phone to silent/vibrate mode when in a meeting

        Add volume profiles such that when I am in a meeting (busy status) the phone automatically switches to vibrate (or silent) so that the phone doesn't disturb me.

                • WP8: Different Calendar Live Tile Views.

                  Let the user customize the Live-Tile. For example:
                  1. Show the next X Appointments (textually)
                  2. Show Appointments within the current week (grafically)
                  3. Show Appointments withín the next X days (grafically)
                  4. Show a month-overview (without Appointments as there Live-Tiles isn't large enough), but with the current day and weekdays for all days of the month.

                  Let the user decide via Calendar-Settings which Live-Tile-View he prefers. :-)

                  • Show multiple events on calendar tile

                    Do not limit the live tile to only one calendar event. Additionally, display 'to-do' items on the calendar.

                      • Improve the Calendar Live Tile

                        The app itself is fine (imo), but the live tile just isn't good. It has average formatting, and it only displays one event. If you look at the app "Cal", it's live tile has nice formatting, and displays three events on the wide tile. This is the kind of format we need for the native app!

                              The weekend in Saudi Arabia has been changed since June 23rd.
                              Therefore , the week start has been changed as well.

                              Windows Phone 8 is displaying the week beginning as Saturday if the Country/Region is Saudi Arabia.

                              End users won't see the calendar as useful and will cause many people to confuse due to the incorrect display of the week.

                              There are so many rumors about the GDR 2 in the Internet. Most probably it is in the final stages if these rumors are correct.
