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. Put @mentions in React

    I really like using @mentions to address people in mail, I really miss it from our Beta.

    For the initial release we decided that @mentions 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.

  2. Add Groups to Beta

    Please add back groups functionality into OWA

  3. add the like button back

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

  4. 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.

  5. I want to be able to pop compose into a new window

    I want to be able to write an email and still be able to navigate around and use my inbox.

  7. 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.

    We are doing a re-write of settings right now. You should see this functionality in the next few weeks. If you need to get to your full settings, please exit the beta and access if from there.

  8. please add ignore conversation action

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

    thanks for your suggestion. The product team will review the request and get back to you.

  9. 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.

    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.

  12. "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"…

  13. Allow better flagging options

    Be able to mark things for tomorrow, this week, next week, or even a custom date which would be an upgrade from the old OWA

    React version doesn't support turning off conversation view, that's a blocker for me

  17. Where is 'message source'?

    new UI looks good... However please don't remove the 'message source' Window. Developers like me need it

  18. 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
