        Having just acquired a Lumia 930, I am thoroughly disappointed. I wasn't even considering, that there would be no direct synchronization between Outlook (desktop) and calendar/contacts (and the rest of outlook for that matter).

        I bought Nokia Lumia 930 in hope and expectation it would give seamless synchronisation of my calendar and contacts with my Windows 7 and 8 computers. Feel thoroughly let down.

        Synchronization via the live cloud is a disaster. It takes forever, distorts the data and thus creates backward loops, contaminating the original datafile on Outlook.

        Please add full Outlook sync functionality back to WinPhone 8.1
        It's unbelievable that a brand new phone (Lumia 930) offers less Outlook synchronization options than an old device running win mobile 6.5.
        What might be the reasons that Catgegories, Tasks, Notes and certain calendar functions are no longer fully supported by WinPhone 8.1?

        It is totally horrendous that one cannot sync WP 8 with Outlook using Nokia PC suite or similar via usb.

        It's totally ridiculous that the new technology and software being brough out by MS features DECREASED capability, not increased. If your own products don't synch properly, where is the incentive for customers to stick with you? I am missing categories and full task and calendar synch between Outlook and my Windows phone. Why not just put Outlook on the phones??

        It's way past time outlook gets moved to the cloud, accessible to all Ms products and services.

        I don't want to configure my email accounts everytime I buy a new device, I want to have all my configured accounts available to me and just check the ones I want to use on that device (similar to opening one note notebooks, or calendars).

        Very Good and Important idea, I have over 200 Notes and I cant afford to copy them one after the other from Outlook to Onenote

        I just want to access a shared contact folder on my windows phone... Why is this not possible...Why??? I am very sad now! :( Is there something on the roadmap to change this? I hope so. Thanks.

        The lack of a full offline sync with outlook is a deal breaker on buying a Windows phone. Current system is way too convoluted

      • PragmabPragmab commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        oui, les tâches, les anniversaires, les jours fériés etc... limite la vision unifié et donc écosytémique des produits Microsoft.

        entre mail/calendar/contact de wp8, metro et Outlook rien n'est pareil.

        c'est pour un professionnel, inconcevable!

        Windows Phone and Outlook should be a perfect ecosystem!
        I really can’t understand why the drafts folder is the only folder that doesn’t sync between Windows Phone and Outlook.

        Also, there should be a folder to sync text messages between Windows Phone and Outlook (via outlook.com, USB or any other way).

        Please add these basic features!

        AkrutoSync provides this option now. All data within Contacts, Calendar, To-dos, and Notes get synchronized completely, directly and automatically.

        The data always stays on your devices. After the initial installation, your Outlook data just syncs in both directions. The sync is perfectly accurate. Highly recommend giving it a try for free:

        www.akruto.com

        After the 7 day free trial, there is a modest $25 lifetime cost for the license.
