  1. Search specific text based on highlighted text

    Feedback for Office 365:

    Previously in Outlook 2016 & 2019 it used to support two ways of using the search:


    1. If highlighted text is present, search code snippet will wrap around when you click To/From/Subject.

    2. If highlighted text is not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code snippet and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    As compared to now (Office 365), it's just one way of using:


    1. If highlighted text is present or not present, it will create To/From/Subject search code and automatically highlight the dummy search term

    Can we retain the old functions where it works both way?

  5. goto Folder from search list

    when i have lots of folder that are nested, and I have done a search, it cam be very difficult to find where the messages are located. I would like the ability to see the path displayed in the search and the ability right click on the message in the search list and select goto Folder. This would place me in the folder where this message was found.

  6. Universal Search for Teams and Outlook

    It would be great to have a universal search box that allowed me to find all of my communication with an individual. A search box that could link me to both Microsoft Teams and Outlook results would be valuable.

  7. Search feature

    The current search feature, where it is located, at the top of the screen is terribly inconvenient and un-natural. I suggest to go back to where it was.

  8. Option to rearrange the search filter in the Search window

    In the search tab you have an option to filter the search results by adding filter tabs. Once you add a filter, there is no option to rearrange them. The first inserted filter goes to the bottom of the list. It would be great to have an option to rearrange them.

  9. Provide the option to set default search mailbox or folder

    Provide the option to set the default search folder or mailbox . Currently the default is "Current Mailbox". I want to set the default to "Current Folder". I don't believe that many users need the default to be "Current Mailbox". You typically want to search a specific folder (e.g. Inbox, Sent, Deleted, or a user defined mail box.

  12. Allow users to search Outlook item Type when searching in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Currently we can only Sort by Type. It would be beneficial to be able to search on type with a query such as; "type:meeting request" or "type:meeting automatic reply"

  15. Add search function Execute from right click

    検索機能の追加 右クリックからの実行

    Add search function Execute from right click

    検索機能の追加 〇〇さんから来たメールの抽出を、○○さん上で右クリック→抽出 という方法にしてください。件名も同様。From;”“などで出来る ようですが、頻繁に使用する必要があるため非常に煩わしいのです。画面が検索結果に切り替わってしまう事も含めてです。 「抽出」の別Windowが立ち上がれば更に良いです。

    Add search function Please extract the mail from Mr. ○ ○, right click on ○ ○ and extract it. The subject is similar. It seems that it can be done with From ;, “etc, but it is very annoying as it is necessary to use it frequently. It also includes switching the screen to search results. It is even better if another Window of “Extraction” stands up.

  16. "Fin related -> Messages from sender" search is incomplete

    "Fin related -> Messages from sender" search is incomplete

    I have 4500 emails in enterprise outlook inbox. out of nearly 2500 mails are to be deleted. When I do "Fin related -> Messages from sender", it shows only 100 results at a time and shows status (at bottom) searching... This is happening after my mailbox migrated to office 365. I did index rebuild etc... work to resolve myself but no luck. Due to security reasons I am providing personal email ID to the conversation

  17. Allow user to disable "Top Results"

    Currently search of email includes "top results" at the top of the search list even when the list is sorted by date. This is a terrible feature in a business setting where it is important to reply to the most recent email in a thread.

    The option "Show most relevant search results on top" should disable this feature, but does not.
