  2. Improve the search function.

    Improve the search function so you can filter the search by words/content and by who sent it.

  3. Search is difficult to use - like old verison where you can search for a person, select them, and then search for a key word

    Search is difficult to use. I prefer the old verison where you can search for a person, select them, and then search for a key word

  5. New Outlook is More Complicated. No Search Button. Forwarding Email made more Difficult!

  8. "Top Results"

    Get rid of search "Top Results". Results are not "top", nor current, nor useful. All it does is waste screen space when I want a chronological list of results with my search term. Same issue even before the new Outlook.

  9. The search function is not as functional as the previous version

    The previous version had great advanced options that appeared on the left of the screen to narrow down your search - specifically for example if I search for a word and then it allows me to select "from" email address - this is not easily done in the new version.

  10. Get rid of "top Results"

    Get rid of "top Results" Just sort by time. It's confusing when I'm looking for emails and I have to look at the same email twice.

  11. Add an option to remove Top Results from search

    The title says it all.

    It's not only annoying, tbh it makes some really strange choices at the moment

  13. limit the search to a specific folder

    There seems to be no way to limit the search to a specific folder, ie. you archive or inbox.

  14. search in folders

    Why can't you search a folder for specific people anymore. You can search by size and date but not people.

  15. Search is still TERRIBLE

    You should be able to search To:, From:, Subject:, etc. just like the desktop version.

  16. deeper search option

    Offer deeper search in new outlook.
    Currently when I search in the new outlook it doesn't pull up all of the search results, only the more recent. I had to switch back to the old outlook to pull up older messages

  17. Search folder

    Enable Search folders in OWA, this is a brilliant option. It would be better if Search Folders were synced through other Outlook Apps too, like Desktop, Android & etc...

    We should be able to search any type of Outlook item (Mail, People, Calendar, Notes and Tasks). It'll be even better if we can search through Teams messages too.

  18. Search feature needs to be more visible

    I couldn't find a search box or tool. It may have been there, but I couldn't find it. It needs to be more obvious.

  19. Introducing categories in the search function

    Good idea that search function is now extended to keyword. However, if you just want to search for e.g. a sender, you get too many results, because all mails will be listed where the sender's name mentioned in the text. Would be easier, if you introduce search categories, like:
    - from
    - to
    - cc
    - bcc
    - subject
    - keyword

    Other users may have further ideas.
