    • User friendly

      Hi
      I would like to request you to improve your "search function a little bit more user friendly. As of now it is quite complicated and time consuming. Basically we as users are looking for options/systems that could save our time at work or home. Outlook search function is not user friendly. Please give the option on drop down list for such as, From, To, Subject, any words and etc. to make it user friendly and off course to save more time.

      Thanks

          • Remove recent searches dropdown

            Please remove the drop-down 'recent searches' box on Outlook webmail. It obscures the search mail box itself, and makes the process of searching needlessly laborious.

              • Taking test and not finishing after the time exceeds

                Tests should never be about an 1:00:00. One, why should we even get 1:00:00 to take our test. That is so wrong for teens like me to get an hour for test. Second, why do I have to get a penalty when I was just looking at my answers and I can't accessed my answers after the time exceeded. Next time, Students should choose the hour time limit because 1:00:00 has got to go!

                • Make OWA help menu recognize synonyms for various setting names

                  When I search for "safe" in the settings menu, I don't find the safe senders list. I had to figure out that it's named "Block or allow". Why not configure your search to work based on keywords that users might type (synonyms)? Microsoft has long called this list the "Safe Senders List". If you want to call it "Block or allow", that's fine, but make it possible to find it using the legacy terminology.

                  • Category Sorting

                    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give users the ability to sort by category. Otherwise there is literally NO POINT in categorizing emails.

                    Gmail is significantly further advanced with this ability, as moving emails to a separate folder is detrimental to my inbox flow.

                      • search is in the wrong place.

                        Could you move the search box on share point so that it is easier to find! It should be on the first screen you see. Having to slide along and search for it is a pain! I have often heard people say wheres the search box! Dont you think that is ridiculous! You have to search for the search box!
                        It complicated enough to use.
                        Could you make it easier to look for help or 'how to' box.
                        When I go on to one drive and the other tab, you have to close and start again. Is there a way…

                          • Expanding search results to show all the members of a distribution group

                            It would be great if search results can show all the members of a distribution group by expanding it when searching the group in directory from contacts in Outlook on the web, because currently it can only show members up to 25.

                            • mailbox delegation permissions

                              Currently to allow a user access to a shared (or other user) mailbox, you have to enter the permission up to 3 times (full, send as, send on behalf). Each time you have to search/select the same user. This becomes cunbersome when several users need multiple permissions (like full + send as). How about selecting the user just once and check box which permissions to give.

                                    • Need an "All Folders Except Deleted Items" search option

                                      There should be an option to search All Folders *except* Deleted Items.

                                      When I search All Folders (which I do since I want to search both sent and received emails at once), all this junk pops up that I have no idea whether I've deleted, so I go through and delete it *again* just to be sure. Give me an All Folders search that excludes deleted emails.

                                      • All folders should mean All folders not Some folders

                                        Here's an idea you wankers: when I search for a keyword in "all folders", it should actually search ALL of my folders. WT actual F?

                                        Yes, including the junk email folder. I've been waiting and searching for an email for a month only to discover that searching for it doesn't actually find it. FFS.

                                        • OFFICE 365 SUCKS

                                          Please fix the search feature so I can search for messages, then drag them to appropriate folders.

                                          Also, WHY DO MY FOLDERS KEEP REFRESHING AND SCROLLING RANDOMLY ON THEIR OWN WHEN I TRY TO DRAG EMAILS INTO THEM?
