Custom Calendar in Outlook 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to create a custom calendar that is listed under My Calendars for both Hotmail and Office 365 Home Premium users.  The calendar will not contain appointments but rather notes and images.

    My questions are:

    1)  Since this is for Windows Live users (without Exchange accounts) does this have to be an Add-in as opposed to an App?

    2) Is it possible to insert custom types (e.g. notes, images) into Calendars instead of appointments?

    3)  Are there any samples or links to similar type projects I could look at?

    Thanks!

  • Ad 1 - i think so, Apps require Exchange account

    Ad 2 - yes, calendar is just anbother folder, but i assume that your question brings hidden assumption about showing those items on calendar view - no, they will not be shown, you will have to create custom view.

  • Apps require an Exchange 2013 account, both Outlook and Exchange must be 2013 for any App.
