      Thanks for your interest in the new Outlook Web! At this point, we have begun work to offer an integrated Chat experience in the new Outlook Web.

      Just like there is a new (and better) Outlook Web, you can expect a new (and better) Chat experience as well! We can’t wait to show it off to you, but we must, as we need to make sure it is of high quality before you see it. :)

      You will be able to use Chat in Outlook Web again at some point in the near future, but until then, brb.

        Hi all – Thanks for reporting these issues, and for trying the new experience. We for sure don’t want you guys to be hitting performance issues!

        However, we need a bit more details to help try to understand the problem.

        Can you please respond back with what Brower, Browser Version, and Operating system you are using?

        This will help us target our investigation.

        Thanks

        David Los

            • Clean, Clear Interface

              Mail interface is just a mess. Cluttered, confusing, difficult to use. Please, please, please clean up the interface. Smaller fonts. Less cruft. Something like old desktop Outlook, Thunderbird, or Zimbra.

              The old interface was an abomination. The new one is no better.

                First off, I just wanted to take a minute and personally thank each and everyone of you for trying the new Outlook on the Web experience and for taking time to provide feedback!

                We truly read every piece of feedback and discuss how to best iterate and improve the product. With that being said, there seems to be a set of users that are saying they feel the new experience is more cluttered. This is for sure not the impression we want to leave!

                As we dig in, we see two pieces of UI that are getting the most feedback from this group. First it is the Sender Photos and second it is the attachment previews.

                We actually have a setting that can turn both of these off. If you can, can you try disabling these two features and see if everything feels better? We would love to hear back.

              • Move emails from to line to the cc line by dragging

                When emailing and you accidentally put someones name in the "To" line but need to move them to the "Cc" line. You use to be able to just drag them back and forth. Now you have to delete and then re-add them in the appropriate place.

                • Flags vs unflag: more options please!

                  When flagging an email there used to be several options (e.g. complete), but now you con only turn the flag on or off. Why would you take away useful functionality?

                      • Calendar color choices too limited.

                        Need more than 7 color choices. We schedule a service desk and need separate colors for each persons calendar. These are calendars, not events so we need the choice in the drop down for the calendar, not in categories.

                        • Calendar email reminder

                          In the new interface it's missing the email calendar event reminder email, there is only the pop-up alarm.
                          Please, recoverit, thanks!

                          • When viewing month in calendar, see list selected day's events on the right

                            Previous version had this breakdown to the right of the month view. This was useful if I had more than 4 or 5 events on my schedule for the day.

                                      Thank you for the feedback, and for trying Outlook on the Web.

                                      I just wanted to let you know that there are two options to turn off those two features you mentioned.

                                      1) Click on the Gear in the top right
                                      2) Toggle off both the Sender Photos and Attachment previews.

                                      This should turn off both of those features you mentioned.

                                      Hope this helps

                                      David Los

                                      • Old calendar UI was more readable (fonts/colors)

                                        The old calendar UI (colored blocks with white text) was more readable than the new version. The new version is too bright/harder to look at.

                                            Hi all – First off, thank you for the feedback. Reading through the different comments it seems like there are two main themes that we are seeing.

                                            1) People aren’t liking the extra circles / icons. Some folks feel this makes it less professional.

                                            2) Extra spacing being taken by showing attachments previews.

                                            I wanted to let everyone know that both of those features can actually be disabled.

                                            Click on the Gear in the top right. This will open the quick settings pane. From look for sender photos and attachments previews.

                                            Once you have those turned off, let us know if this helps your experience. It should look much more like the older experience.

                                            Thanks,

                                            David Los
