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. 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

      • Pinned items are not visually distinct or collapsable

        If you have too many pinned items, it seems as if you aren't receiving new emails since they look the same as normal list view items.

        • "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"…

          • Put @mentions in React

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

              Planned  ·  James Peters responded

              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.

              • 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

                    This should be fixed, let us know if you have problems. If you want to contact the product team directly you can use the smiley button to send a bug report.

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