    Thanks for the feedback.
    In the new OWA calendar experience, you can open another person’s calendar to clicking on the “Import calendar” link in the left panel and in the dialog, click on the “Import from directory” option. This will let your search and open another person’s calendar.

  2. Where are Notes from Outlook.

    This used to be on the left hand pane and is not available on new OWA build.

    Again, thank you all for the great feedback and for using the new Outlook on the web experience! I am happy to say based on your feedback we have brought back the notes experience in the web. We are now showing the folder which is parity for the old experience.

    It may take about one additional week until everyone sees the new experience.

    If you are a heavy notes user, please take this survey: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=v4j5cvGGr0GRqy180BHbRwanMpRe2utDjwRsPg3B1zhUMlE3Q1VMSTFaV1pXMVkySUdKSkxWQlAzRS4u

    and tell us more about how you’re using them within Outlook on the Web.

  3. Improve the search function.

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

    Thank you for your feedback! We’re continually working to improve the search feature. You can currently search by words in the emails, by senders, and many more ways.

    For more advanced filtering, click the “Filters” button after you’ve opened the search bar (it’s on the right side of the search bar). Then you can specify even more detailed searches.

  4. Calendar event reminder by email

    Please include an option to add a calendar event reminder by email. This was available in the old system and was very useful.

  5. Images in Email Signature

    After attaching an image to the Email Signature settings, I could not attach a hyperlink to that image like how I could do it on the old outlook. Please look into that.

    I again thank each and everyone of you for using Outlook on the Web and for providing all of your feedback. I wanted to let you know that as of today we have enabled Density settings. There are three modes which control how tight and how much information is shown on the screen.

    To change the density settings click on the gear in the top right (settings). In the pane that opened you should see three setting Full, Medium and Compact.

    Hope this helps address some of the concerns around white space :)

    Thanks again,

    David Los

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for an option to switch to more saturated calendar colors in the new Outlook on the web is now complete.

    If you would like to try out this experience, please click on the gear icon in the top right of your calendar module to access your settings, and toggle “Bold event colors”.

  9. Show "My Day" todo list on the "My Day" sidebar

    Show "My Day" todo list on the "My Day" sidebar in calendar. Currently it shows tasks, but the Todos I've specifically categorized in "my day" in the TODO app don't show up here as a list.

  11. 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.

    I would like to be able to disable Expressions. I turned off the beta solely because I can't disable the expressions. Let me know when you have the feature added and I'll re-join the beta. Thanks.

  13. Dark mode needs dark compose

    Dark mode needs to include message compose. Currently UI is dark but new compose message is eye searing white.

    Hi all – Just wanted to let you know that as of today we are starting to roll out support for dark compose. This will mean you don’t have to have the white screen when writing an email.

    Also this week you should now be able to select themes when you have dark mode enabled!

    Thanks for the awesome feedback and suggestions.

  14. Distribution Groups removed from settings menu.

    Need to be able to access Distribution Groups (not Office 365 Groups) from OWA like in old version so users can self-service join/leave.

    Hi all – Thanks again for providing us with all of the feedback. I just wanted to let everyone know that you should now be seeing Distribution Group Management in the new Outlook on the web experience.

    You might need to refresh your browser.

    Thanks, and keep the great feedback coming!

  16. Stop the auto response, answer, I can not look at it again.

    Stop the auto response email response. Turn it off! Is there a way to turn it off. I do not want to see it again. I am not a robot.

    Notification bell has been shipped to all Enterprise users, and we’ve fixed it so that each module opens in the same tab.

    By the way, we’re working on adding some new scenarios to the notifications bell. Could you take this survey to let us know what scenarios you are most interested in?

  18. The search function doesn't work

    The search function is not working! this is why google is so much better than outlook. I would never use this if it wasn't imposed by my employer.

    First off, thank you for taking the time to use the new Outlook on the web experience and for taking the time to provide feedback! I just wanted to let you know that we do have signature settings in the experience already.

    Click on the gear in the top right hand corner.

    In the search box type in signature.

    This will show a link to the Email Signature. Which will then take you right to the signature settings.

    Thanks!

  20. Regarding Junk Folder

    Remove the Notice/note on top of junk folder that says- Items in Junk folder will be deleted after 10 days. It does not fit to all kind of user. Specifically in O365 this general note does not reflect . Please remove the notice.
