Microsoft’s Outlook Web App to Retire Calendar Board View This Month

Microsoft is getting ready to deprecate the calendar board view (aka Project Moca) in the Outlook web app. The company has quietly announced that this change will go into effect for both Microsoft 365 commercial customers and consumers ( on June 26, 2023.

The calendar board view (formerly known as Project Moca) was launched back in July 2021. The feature allows users to organize different pieces of information on a Kanban-style board that’s connected to their Outlook calendar. It’s designed to help Outlook users keep their emails, tasks, notes, calendar events, and other content in one place.

Microsoft will inform users about the retirement of the calendar board view via in-app notifications. The company says that users will be able to export the metadata of the boards by going to Outlook settings >> Privacy and data.

“In June 2023, calendar board view will be retired. When this happens, you will no longer be able to access your boards and you will be redirected to a supported calendar view,” the company explained on a support page.

Low usage for the Outlook calendar board view

Microsoft has not mentioned the reason behind this decision. However, the company is no longer releasing new updates to improve the calendar board view, and its usage remains quite low. Microsoft highlights that there are several note-taking apps available for Microsoft 365 customers such as OneNote and Microsoft To Do. The new Microsoft Loop app also allows teams to collaborate on content and tasks across devices.

Microsoft notes that it will redirect calendar board URLs to a supported calendar view. Meanwhile, users will be able to access their content (such as files, tasks, and notes) through their respective Microsoft 365 apps. Do you use the calendar board view in the Outlook web app?
