Outlook on the web (Office 365)

Missing possibility to disable "TOP-RESULTS"

Please insert a possibility to disable the function "TOP-Results". This is an absolutely unhelpful and confusing function.

        This is the most stupid feature to not be able to disable. We moved from Google to o365 and, as much as I disliked gmail for corporate use, o365 is 10x worse. It would only be 5x worse if we could DISABLE THIS STUPID STUPID "feature". Please either remove "top results" or give us an option to disable it as it gets in my way MULTIPLE times per day.

        Please, Please let us disable the Top Results feature of Search - or at least let us have a choice of, say, most recent first. It has caused some of us very real problems. It makes Outlook not worth putting up with the other troubles it causes users.

        This feature is beyond useless - PLEASE GET RID OF IT - whoever came up with this feature is simply clueless - it makes no sense at all.

        "top" results as chosen by a braindead AI. A randomizer could do better. Your software is actually worse than having no email services at all.

        Please allow us to disable Top Results, it is not helpful, duplicates emails in the list, and is confusing.

        Thank god I can still access my emails with 3rd party applications. Outlook on the web becomes more and more infuriating to use... top results being the worst offender since it can't be disabled (unlike that other infuriating "conversation" view gimmick)

        is it so hard to just display emails as it was intended - by date received?

        This is dumb and useless, please disable TOP RESULTS or allow us to disable it!

        This is exactly the type of poor choice, stubbornly clung on to, which will see even a long-time Microsoft loyalist move to G-Suite. Come on gang, you can do better than this.

        This is a terrible feature please add an option to disable this, it is making my work a lot harder rather than easier.

      • Thom Gray commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        "Top Results" provides absolutely no value. Further, it wastes valuable screen real estate and (most importantly) my time as I have to visually scan *below* the so-called "Top Results" to get to the search results I need, want, and expect. Just please provide the option to disable it.

      • Paul Callomon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. Remove this useless and confusing feature altogether or at least give users the choice of turning it off.

      • Dave L. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is an unwanted feature. Microsoft should add the abilty to disable it asap.
