The calendar is lacking basic functionality that can be found in IOS, Android, Symbian and lower end "dumb"phones.
Customizable views: Weekly, monthly and even daily views.
Week numbers should be supported.
Calenders import/export functions.
Live Tile should be able to show more appointments.
Lock Screen Should be able to show more appointments.
Third party apps can not access the calendar functions to make new entries and edit existing entries. So developers are basically not allowed to fix this.
The existing monthly view is useless. No zoom option and no readable text.
This needs to be fixed soon. My old Nokia S60 has way better calendar functions than WP Mango as it is now.

What really needs to happen, it seems, is everyone who's blindly created their own calendar suggestion, or voted for another one that is unnecessarily specific in comparison to this one, should remove their votes and consolodate them all into this one.
Completely agree with this post. I am a little surprised on the lack of basic functionality of the W8P calendar. The fact that you can not do a simple import of an .ics file from an email is really frustrating...so much that I might not be able to use it if this does not get fixed ASAP. How can I be kept updated on this issue?
Yes pleeeeaaaasssseee make my perfect phone more perfect with 'live tiles should be able to show more appointments'
