      • 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

                • "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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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

                              • 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.

                                • Hard time to search a keyword

                                  It's hard to search for a keyword. The mailbox shows the list of messages in conversations but not directly go to the highlighted keyword. So, I need to check each email found and look for the highlighted word manually. It's time consuming so hope you can help me fix this.

                                    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

                                    • 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.

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

                                          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.
