      Thank you for your feedback! The ability to drag and drop an email to the task panel is available in the Outlook Web beta. We’re reviewing the ability to enable you to drag a task to the calendar, and will reply back once we have an update.

    • Display the Same Features of Office Outlook the Same Everywhere

      Offer online users of office outlook the same exact interface as outlook 365 and vise versa. I am not able to complete the same tasks using the office 365 when working from home as I can at work. This is presents a ton of challenges using the web version of office outlook.

        • 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.

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

          • Sort your folders by name or other

            Please make it so I can alphabetize my folders or reorder them as I like. It is frustrating that the newest added is at the bottom of the list. An organize your folder or even a way to sort seems so basic and I have no idea why me and MANY others have google searched this only to find no fix after many years.

            HELP?

            • 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

              • recurring automatic reply

                On the Automatic reply (out of office ) feature PLEASE include a fucntion which allows you to set a recurring out of office (automatic reply) for certain days of the week (for example every Monday). Many people work part time and are automatically out of the office on exact same days of the week - it would be great to be able to programme a function to automatically start a automatic reply at exactly the same time every week (a recurring one)

                • 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.

                  • Posibility to add shared inboxes to favorites

                    Using Office 365 webmail, it should urgently be made possible to display "shared accounts inbox" in favorites. The webmail functionality is almost not useable for us until that is possible.

                    We have 5 shared inboxes. Using webmail, we have to open each individual shared inbox to investigate if any new mails has arrived.

                    Using Outlook, we add the inboxes to favorites. That way its possible to register new mails just by sweeping the program.

                    • Usability improvements

                      -How about putting the headers on the email list so I can easily sort by them?
                      -How about providing a better search mechanism instead of having just one search box that mixes search results? Search is also not very smart, in couldnt distinguish between search context.
                      -Eliminate grouping by conversation or provide option to turn it off.. It just doesnt work!

                      • Folder Icons / Color Coding

                        In the far left navigational tree, where you find the inbox, drafts, created folders, etc., the folder name text, for each folder, could be more visually distinct for quicker visual navigation. Right now, the list of folder names is stacked vertically with double-spacing with only gray between. I think it would be better if the folder rows had alternate shading, or some sort of colored folder icon to make mousing to the correct folder more intuitive and visual, instead of just textual.

                        - Thanks for your consideration!

                        • Outlook Online Categories/Tags Views and Assignments

                          ADD CATEGORY/TAGS TO ONLINE OUTLOOK
                          I use category tags in the desktop version of outlook to sort, view, and find relevant messages. Unfortunately the online version of outlook does not use these for sorting, filtering, or in views. It would be a nice feature if you could add category/tags to the filter and searching functions in the online version of outlook.

                          • Unread not bold enough in 365

                            Outlook365 does not bold unread messages sufficiently, the inbuilt windows 10 mail app does this much, much better.

                            Please can you look at making bold unread messages effectively.

                              I enabled email forwarding in my Outlook 365 account. However, it forwards ALL emails, even those that go directly to Junk Email folder. Outlook should allow an option to NOT forward emails identified as junk or spam.

                              • Mail rules to sort focused or other inboxes

                                The "Always move" option is great for helping to sort mail into the "Other" inbox, or back into the "Focused" inbox, but it'd be useful to extend this customisation via Rules.

                                For example, I'm a member of a mailing list that gets a large amount of mail daily. The senders vary, and they often send me important mail too, to the "always move" option is too much. I'd like to setup a Rule, if sent to mailing list, move to "Other Inbox".

                                    • Scheduling an email via the "Web Version of Outlook"!

                                      PLEASE!!!
                                      Make a feature to schedule e-mails to be sent using the OUTLOOK WEB VERSION. I already know this is available for the installed application on a windows 10 computer but I want to be able to do this via the web version of outlook.

                                        A small popup for new email notification (calendar too) that lasts a few seconds would be nice. Our previous email system had this (when your browser was the active app). Also on the outlook tab at the top of the browser a number in parentheses indicating the number of new emails would be nice to have.

                                        • Reuse generic message

                                          It would be nice to be able to re-use a generic message that needs to be sent to different users on different occasions. Thus, a master generic message can be saved and modified for a specific user. This saves the need to recreate the entire message when the need arises. I believe Yahoo Mail has this option. Thanks.
