I just switched to 'New Outlook' (Microsoft Outlook Version 1.2023.411.200 (Production). Client Version is 20230414002.01) and I'm unable to view more than one calendar side-by-side. When I select more than one calendar, the default overlaps them in one calendar and split view is greyed out. Below is a screen capture. How do I fix this? Thanks, Yasmeen Screenshot 2023-04-18 152453-marked-up

    Hi @Yasmeen ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Based on my test, i got the same result as yours, i'm afraid that the side-by-side view is not available in New Outlook preview.

    Please kindly understand that many functions of our current products are designed and upgraded according to customer feedback. At present, what I can do for you is to submit feedback for your request and I have post here. It's suggested that you could vote for it and you can also post your suggestions on that website. Hope Microsoft will notice this in the future. Thank you for your understanding and support!

    I agree! Having the option to split view monthly calendars would be excellent.

    The split view button is there, it's just grayed out and unusable when viewing calendar by month. Will it be added in the future, or is it going to be removed altogether? Just curious, because if it's removed (no clue why it would be) I'll have to find an alternative app to use.

    Even in Week View, I used to be able to choose which calendars to overlay. Now, I only have the option to split all or overlay all. I'd like to bring back the function to overlay two calendars and view the third side-by-side.
