From the gold medal round of boxing to swimming relays to the gymnastic routines—we have you covered.

Once added, your events will show up on your Outlook calendar across all your devices. It’s simple, intuitive and ensures you don’t miss a thing.
To take advantage of this new feature, you must be running the newest version of the Web App. The new version is still being rolled out despite being available for months now. We understand that migration is moving along slowly, and folks who are sharing calendars and signing into their Windows 10 Mobile or Windows Phone device with an Outlook account, will be the last ones to be migrated to the new version of the email Web App.
Microsoft expects everyone to be up and running with the new Outlook.com before the August 31, 2016, deadline.
