    First off, thank you for taking the time to provide the feedback and request Dark Mode for Outlook on the Web in Office 365.

    We have heard this feedback loud and clear and have added Dark mode as part of our new Preview Client. Right now the feature is enabled for Targeted Release tenants/Users.

    If you want to try out this new feature you should ask your admin to configure you for this early release group. As we continue to validate the new experience we will slowly roll it out to all users over the coming months.

    For more details about everything the New Client experience offers, you might want to check out this blog. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Outlook-Blog/An-early-version-of-the-new-Outlook-on-the-web-will-be-available/ba-p/225338

    Thanks!

  2. Add option to not open calendar in a new browser tab

    The new UI forces you to open a new tab when you click on the calendar. I want the option to switch to the calendar in the same tab.

  3. Duplicating Calendar Events

    In the Calendar Application/Portal - allow for singular duplication of events.
    Not repeating events, just the ability to take an event and copy/paste it to another day.

    Example:
    Tues - January 10th, Staff Meeting 10am

    Duplicate

    Thursday - February 24th, Staff Meeting 10am

  5. Make unread messages more visible with bold face black color font

    Instead of a light blue font for an unread message, just make the whole message a bold face font. It's easier to see what new messages you have. The current color scheme is too subtle.

  6. Email moderation buttons (Approve/Reject)

    It would be good to have the ability to approve or reject moderated emails as you can present to in OWA. Beta has no buttons for this, and I have to swap between the two versions

  7. Visual Email Notifications

    Can you add some kind of visual email notification? Maybe something similar to the traditional Outlook icon in the tray, that shows the number of new emails that have come in. If I'm not at my desk to "hear" emails come in, I don't notice them when I return. This means I'm constantly having to check my email just to see if I have anything.

    Hey, thanks for giving us your feedback! In the new version of Outlook on the Web, we will support browser notifications which will keep you updated of new emails and calendar events even while you’re not looking at OWA.

    We also have a red dot that appears on the browser tab on the OWA logo, which lets you know that you have new mail.

  8. Add back Open Calendar option

    In the old OWA you could add a colleague's calendar by right clicking a calendar group and then selecting "Open Calendar". This would allow you to search for your colleague and then add their calendar to your calendar group in the sidebar. This is an integral feature for team based, global companies in order to keep track of your colleagues' time and location.

    First off, thank you for taking the time to provide the feedback and request improvements in Rules and Sweep Rules.

    We have heard this feedback loud and clear and have been working to simplify and add functionality to Rules management in our new Preview Client. Right now the feature is enabled for Targeted Release tenants/Users.

    If you want to try out this new feature you should ask your admin to configure you for this early release group. As we continue to validate the new experience we will slowly roll it out to all users over the coming months.

  10. Delete Search History

    Give option to delete search history. (In Search Mail and People box). Obsolete email ids and search terms turn up trying to autocomplete, which is an annoying experience. Checked your forums - found that delete feature is not provided my microsoft.

    We’re happy to announce that you’re now able to export and delete your search history on Outlook.com.

    To do this:
    1) Go to settings (top right-hand gear icon)
    2) Click “View full settings”
    3) Navigate to General → Export
    4) Under the “Search history” section, click “Delete history” or “Export” and follow the prompts on the screen.

  11. Unread/read mails not easy to distinguish

    It's hard to distinguish between the read and unread mails in my inbox. Using a different background color or perhaps using an icon like a colored dot on the unread emails would be helpful to clearly identify the unread emails. Right now only the subject of the unread emails appears in blue which is easy to confuse with the rest of the theme and doesn't stand out. Thanks for taking this feedback. Have a great time :)

    Thanks for the feedback and for using Outlook on the web!
    In order to make your message list appear less cluttered, try changing the following settings. Click on the gear in the top right hand corner, and turn off Attachment Previews, Sender Photos, and Message Preview text. Hope that helps!

  12. Insert image option for signature

    I want to be able to insert a button into my signature, but there is no option for inserting an image (png or jpeg). Thanks

    We have enabled this. If you do not see it yet in your Outlook for the web experience it will roll out to you soon. Thanks for your suggestions and I hope you like the feature as much as our team does.

  13. Adding Skype for Business meetings to invites (beta)

    On the latest Outlook beta the ability to add Skype for Business meetings to invites has disappeared. I need to keep returning back to the old version to send these types of invites.

  16. FIx your mail box

    Maybe fix you program because currently I cannot open my two mailboxes simultaneously. Somehow when I open one the other address is not found and unless I use the icognito tab I am stuck in one mailbox or the other. Given that these are addresses that I use all the time, it is quite frustrating having to constantly switch to incognito in 2018
