How can I view upcoming appointments (not just today or tomorrow)

hi,

I recently upgraded to Office 2013 and was very sad to see that the to-do bar has been nobbled to only show appointments from the current day.

I am aware of the countless threads complaining about this but what I don't see is any way to get around this (short of downgrading)

The first thing I tried was to move my appointments over to my Hotmail calendar then sync that to my Windows 8 laptop (which I use more frequently than my desktop anyway).  It worked but even in Windows 8 there seems to be no way to simply view a list of appointments.  The live tile / lock screen "detail" view will pick up the "next" appointment but only if it's today or tomorrow so that's useless as well.

So - does anyone know of any way at all to view a list of upcoming calendar appointments either in Outlook 2013 on Windows 7 or via some Windows 8 app?

You could use Outlook Today to get an overview of the upcoming appointments (up to 7 days) or set your (initial) Reminders earlier.

Ah, Outlook Today is a nice feature - that'll do as a stop gap for now at least so thank you very much :)

I notice that it's deprecated though so I'm guessing this work around is going to vanish eventually.  They do seem intent on making us miss appointments :P

I'd also be interested to hear from anyone who's found a way to achieve similar results in the Windows 8 calendar / app.

This Codeplex add-in might help while Microsoft decides to bring this so much needed feature back:

One possibility is to export the file of appointments and then print it.  Here is an annoying procedure that may work for you in Outlook 2013.  Start with a view of your calendar.  Then:
1. Select File > Open & Export > Import/Export
2. Export to a file, then NEXT
3. Comma separated values, then NEXT
4. NEXT (to accept choice of Calendar)
5. Browse and choose a temporary folder such as c:/TEMP
6. NEXT, then Finish
7. select dates, then OK
8. Use Explorer to navigate to the exported file and double-click to open it in Excel.  (OR open Excel and find the file.)
9. expand the columns to see subject, starting and ending dates and times, etc.
10. If you work with Excel, you are able to sort by dates, times, subject, etc. if you like, and organize the list in other ways.  (Unfortunately, when I did this it came out sorted by Subject instead of by date and I had to re-sort it by date, so if you don't use Excel this may be too frustrating.)
11. Select and print what you want in Excel.
This may be too difficult if you don't work with Excel or another spreadsheet program.  If you do use Excel, it isn't too bad.  After I did it once or twice it took me only a couple of minutes.

Write to Microsoft and get them to give us a simple way to export a list of upcoming appointments (or is there such a way that I haven't found?)

It's been over a year now and Microsoft has not responded to the hundreds of posts stating their disapproval over the new To-Do bar functionality in Outlook 2013.  

It's obvious people prefer to see more than one day's appointments in the to-do bar.  Why do the Office developers insist on ignoring users?   

Who is making these decisions anyway?  The same people that decided to remove all semblances of a start button?  The same people who decided a 24hr check-in was needed for the Xbox One?  Get your head out of the sand, fire the existing managers/executives, and TRY LISTENING TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!!

Stop being so arrogant as to dictate what you think is best, regardless of user feedback.  Chrome and Apple will eagerly serve the defecting customers, and all of you will be unemployed.

Microsoft has finally updated the To Do Bar functionality to include up to a week's worth of appointments.  It was a hotfix bundled with a security update.  For more information, see this discussion.

Great, a fix has been released.  

Well, a partial fix.  Think about it, when looking at a calendar, how much more USEFUL is it when days with appointments are actually bolded?  You know, like it used to be.

This add-in doesn't work - I've downloaded in Chrome and in IE but receive the same error messages about deployment and application

I've also downloaded microsoft's fixes such as KB... but these don't work either.

Does anyone have a solution that works?
