Please offer a way to turn off conversations!
Please allow a way to turn off the "conversations" feature.

We just migrated some user to o365 platform and they used to the message view of email interface, we have know how to turn off the conversation of each folder, but we are wondering there is a feature to turn off the conversation view to all folder, since some user have hundreds of folder, it's too time consuming to setup one by one.
Refer to the advice from Microsoft community, this feature is not avaliable at this moment.

Option to categorize individual emails when viewed as conversation. Currently, when category option is selected it marks all emails under that conversation with the category i selected. I use Office 365 in MacBook. This option works as I expect in Windows version of office 365.
I would like to be able to view my emails in chronological order, not grouped by conversation.
Please allow us to switch off the unhelpful and timewasting conversations.
This should be a user selectable option (as in the full client).
some people will want it. for me, it slows down what I want/need to do making me less efficient.

What do i do if I don't want my emails in "Conversation" style? I can't find a way to change it to normal.
It would be great if you would allow users to turn off the conversation view, which groups conversations by subject heading whether we want this or not. Many people, like me, HATE this feature.
Please allow us to turn "conversation" off on the email threads. I need to be able to read each email as it is sent to me. conversation is very cumbersome and not efficient.
Make a button to "turn off conversations", please. Or at least show how to do it in the help. Thanks.
How can we ungrup messages?

I just had to select each Folder and Sub-folder to choose 'Show As Messages' rather than conversations. Most people do not bother to compose a new email when starting a new topic. They just find an email from the person they need to email and reply to that. Conversations end up being mixed and grouping by conversation is not at all helpful. MAKE IT EASY, OR MAKE 'SHOW AS MESSAGES' THE DEFAULT.
It would be great if you could add these options in Exchange Online (or powershell)
- Permit to enable or disable the "Focuses inbox" or the "Conversation mode" for all users in tenant.
- Permit to disable the export of the entire list of contact of the domain in "Contact" (In case of compromised account, the list is very easy to download and could be used for spamming)

You can turn off conversations and go back to message style. Please offer a global option rather than having to select by folder. People with years of archived folders switching over to OWA from desktop will have to rearrange each folders view.
Quit having emails come in as a thread. I want them separate to file separately. Sometimes the threads get mixed up if they have the same subject line and a response to one email gets sent back as a response to a different email with the same subject line. Or at least let us choose if we want emails to be returned in a thread or as a separate conversation.

i want to have ability on O365 Outlook to STOP 'conversations'. Please, give me a choice.
i am not able to find an individual email because it is now 'embedded' [for lack of a better term] inside a conversation and i absolutely hate it.

I really want the conversations to be threaded. This would help students to follow the conversations .

A Powershell command to change the view from conversation to Message view for inbox and all other folders.
I often miss emails in an email chain. This hapens becasue i use the conversation mode in OWA and I only pay attention to the last email in that conversation. I am aware that there is a tell tale in the form of the number of unread emails in brackets (2), but I often miss that detail.
My idea would be to unfold -only- the not read emails in the conversations as opposed to only display the header with the number of unread emails in brackets.
It would be most helpful to turn off threaded conversations globally in OWA. As of right now, it can be done on a folder by folder basis, but there should be an option to do it for all folders, and to have that setting kept permanently.

Please allow me to disable conversations. It's not helping me.
