"In the old days" you could show as many months of calendar in the to-do bar space as the width would allow. As you dragged the width wider, more months would fill in.
Now no matter how wide you make the screen real estate, only one month is visible.
My screenshot below makes it clear what I'm saying. The yellow spaces used to show the month before and after the "primary" month that was currently displayed in the main window.
As I don't think this is a setting, Microsoft please consider this a suggestion -- to bring back the described functionality as it was until at least Outlook 2013 if not even more recent.

Yes...it's appeared on my main/latest Surface Pro now too. It's only a small thing, but I like it. I use the To Do Bar all the time, so it's handy.

@pattydl You can adjust the ratio of how many months you wish to see or how much of your Inbox you wish to view though... See below:-

It might be worth checking what version of Outlook is installed. This is the version I have -
Might be worth trying to force an update?

@GeoffLCS I actually have the same version. Are you saying you're able to see the multiple months in the pane in calendar?

Yes, I can definitely see multiple months...
I'm using a 23" monitor, so I see less months on my Surface Pro Laptop...but it works fine.

I made the same view as you have and still only have one month display, no matter how wide i make that area. I notice you may have a developer instance of Outlook? Perhaps it's not a GA feature? (See next post)

Thanks...I don't think have a Developer version, but will check. Just looking at the Icons in your Ribbon though, they look very different to mine. They look like Outlook 2013 Icons and not the new 365 Icons. I could be wrong on that, but it might be worth checking your Outlook version. File > Office Account

Ahh...sorry about that and no worries. I'm also using the Desptop client but it is 365 true. I will do some more digging though since it is intriguing. If I find anything, I will advise. Cheers

@RehabilitatedCorpEE I too thought I was imagining things. So good to see at least I am not alone. This was a great feature and there is no reason to have it go away. Now there is just one calendar with a lot of empty space around it. This is helpful, really?? They usually add one functionality and take away three useful ones. So much for technology. Look at the world around us.
