Outlook.com beta (Internal)

This is the Microsoft Internal forum where you can give us feedback on what you would like to see in the new (React) OWA. We’ll release first to Outlook.com, which is why some enterprise features may be missing.

Please vote on ideas you like or submit your own. This will help us decide what to build next.

We’ll reply to top issues, and will consider other suggestions as well. Thank you for your patience!

  1. The "mail" view does not have a quick option to create an appointment or task, like Outlook does in the desktop

    The "new message" button should have options to create other types of items right away from the inbox. Having to go to the calendar first in order to make a meeting request is a step backwards!

      • With that preview next feature enabled, I can't open any message in separate window.

        With that preview next feature enabled, I can't open any message in separate window. Is that intended or just a bug?

        If intentional, it's a great way to limit the # of people willing to use the feature.

            • Very slow and unresponsive

              After initial page load, clicking between several different email threads can take up to 10 seconds (UI locks up completely, no hover state shown for other threads on mouseover, etc).

              It even locked up so bad chrome showed me the "aw snap" page (maybe it ran out of memory, maybe it hit the CPU too hard and locked up, not sure).

              Sometimes if I give the page a bit of time to settle after loading it returns to a fluid behavior. But it is definitely a regression from the old OWA in terms of "once the page loads and shows…

                This is the main focus of the team right now and we are actively working on improving this.

              • add the like button back

                I like being able to acknowledge an email without having to reply, the like button was great for that.

                  The React Beta is a consumer only release for now, and like does not exist in consumer, we will look at adding this when we start to focus on enterprise.

                    • Settings seems to be broken - can't set rules like I used to

                      All the items in the submenu that appears when I click "settings" (such as automatic replies) are dead - can't click them and nothing happens.

                            For the initial release we decided that view item attachments was not a valuable enough consumer feature to make it into the V1. Most of the usage/value is from enterprise use and we plan on adding this in the future.

                                  The React Beta is going to be shipping to consumer users first, and they do not have Skype for Business which is why it is not in the product yet. It will be looked at for the enterprise release.

                                    I really miss the ignore conversation button, it is very useful for noisy threads I don't care about.

                                    • Archive all read/unflagged mail

                                      One button to archive all read and/or unflagged messages (or something like the Sweep UI where you can pick the criteria) would be really helpful in keeping an inbox clean

                                        • "Move to folder" should remember most-recently/commonly used folders

                                          Being able to quickly filter and sort away messages is important. Similar to the previous version of Outlook.com, the ability to "Move" quickly to your common folders is super important.

                                          In lieu of this LRU-cache of folders used when moving messages, it would be more accessible to have a "Show all" folders option; right now the only way to find other folders is to actually search for them.

                                          As an example, I have a folder called "Purchases", but with the new Outlook experience, I'm finding myself deleting my transaction receipts instead of taking the time to click Move, type "pur"…
