  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Better search

    Project based emails - so email organised easily
    Improved search - even when you search on a specific name doesn’t return all emails outlook is rubbish at search

  4. 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!

  5. Multi-select to delete after searching keyword

    When searching for keyword and list of emails appear, allow us to delete/permanently delete the emails.

  6. Calendar

    I have a long time getting you to implant search function in the calendar where I can search for meetings, activity later in the time. Also able to search for previous activities. Google and others have it in their calendars. Hope you see the customer's needs.

  7. Includ the calender in the search system

    It is very annoying that the calender isn't included in search. If I want to see a special event in the calender, I have to go through all the months the find it.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Search Option

    Search option doesn’t work perfectly. It’s difficult to find old emails.

  11. Improve Design in Search bar

    First of all, thanks for the ever better app.
    The search function in the middle has not yet been optimally solved in design terms and overloaded with information. From my point of view, it is sufficient at this point only to accommodate the contacts. They should also be sortable by last name.

    Files and pending events overload the entire view in the app.

    In principle, only mail, contacts and calendars should be in focus.

  12. Accurate search results

    When searching emails by name or key words, the results given should match more accurately. When I type a specific word I get results that are not relevant and have to scroll to find words that match within the results. Specifically in outlook for IOS, I don’t get all matching results. It typically only shows emails from me, when I actually need the original sent to me. Outlook didn’t used to behave this way in either iOS or windows.

  13. Searching for Historic Emails

    Hi,

    I can’t seem to search for historic emails, as it doesn’t seem to download enough to make the search results that useful.

    Is there anything that can be done to the search history criteria for instance?

    Thanks

    Steve

  14. Schedule email from search results

    Currently searched result emails can’t be scheduled to show up again at a later time. This would be a nice option to have.

  15. Ability to navigate file structure in Onedrive

    This used to be simple, but now seems impossible. The only way I can look for Onedrive files is with the search function, but it never finds the files I need.

  16. 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...

  17. 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...

  18. 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!
