  2. Eliminate “top results”

    Simple - get rid of top results. It is distracting and confusing.

  3. Bring back search field at top of inbox

    Please let me search my inbox from a search field at the top of my inbox, instead of having to click the separate magnifying glass icon at the bottom, which is less efficient.

  4. Search, “select all”, delete

    Would love to be able to do a search for specific emails from the same source or with the same subject, “select all” within the search, and then delete everything in that search with one click.

  5. Remove the limits of search on Outlook mobile app

    Pls remove the limits of search results on Outlook mobile app. It should align with OWA where the full result is retrieved

  6. Should have a way with search in iPad version to go the specific message in the thread and not just the thread.

  8. Search Results Should Allow Bulk Actions

    I sometimes like to search for all of a certain type of email (for example Amazon orders) and then move then all into specific folders. Currently I don't believe bulk actions are allowed from the search results page meaning every single email must be manually opened and then moved, which is very tedious. This should be easy to implement and would make life much easier!

  9. Select multiple emails after searching

    I would like to be able to select multiple emails after searching for similar ones. I was surprised when I wasn’t able to do that.

  10. Hello, can you please automatically place my input cursor into the search field when I select the ‘Search’ magnifying icon at the bottom?

    Hello, can you please automatically place text input cursor into the search field when when the ‘Search’ magnifying glass icon is selected at the bottom of the screen?

  11. Search trash

    I understand there are those who don’t want to search the trash folder but there are also those who do. I would like to suggest a toggle option to serve both needs. Right now if I delete something and need to find it in a week I have to use the desktop app.

  12. Select All after Filter

    Need to be able to filter on a sender, subject, or keyword, then “Select All Filtered”, and then have options (for only the selected) to delete, archive, move, etc...

  13. Search via pull-down, not separate screen

    It’s really confusing to have to go to another screen to search. Everything else on my iPad has a Search box which you pull down from the top of the list of things to be searched (in this case, that would be the list of email titles). As a consequence, every time I need to search, I try to pull down the list of emails, and then realise that won’t work...

  14. Ability to swipe to delete or mark unread while searching

    If you search for emails from a user, once it displays the results swiping left and right on specific emails doesn’t work. Adding this would be a very easy way to help clean up the inbox or to delete items that aren’t needed. Currently you have to go into each email and delete it from that screen, so there’s a lot of repetitive steps needed when working with a lot of emails.

  15. Open keyboard on search

    It is a small thing, but when hitting the search magnifying glass if the keyboard would automatically pop up that would be great. Saves a click!

  16. Single touch search

    To search I have to;
    1) touch search magnifying glass
    2) touch on text field
    3) after entering text, i have to touch ‘search’.

    Suggest when search magnifying glass is touched, search field is auto selected with keyboard available straight away. Search should commence after 1.5 seconds of no further entry (with search cancelled if further text is entered).

  17. Toggle to search a specific mailbox

    By default the search returns results from all mailboxes. Please add a toggle or an option to search within a specific mailbox when there are multiple accounts configured in Outlook for iOS.

  18. The contact search function is clunky; provide a contact button

    Mirror Apple’s contact features; provide a contact button on the tool bar; improve the search function...when I search for a contact, all I want is the contact profile...if I wanted related emails etc, I’d search for those item separately

  20. Contact results

    It would be good to be able to remove or delete certain items from the contact results when searching. One example is an incorrect email continuously appears and is easily used when the proper email may be lower on the list.
