  1. Suggested Reply - Eliminate text recommendations or make them opt-in only

    Suggested words and phrases suddenly started appearing for me in my Outlook for web a few days ago without any prior communication or action on my part, and without my consent, either.

    They are annoying and intrusive, and forcing them on me was presumptive, rude, and hateful.

    I know exactly what I want to say and take great pride in my writing and my editing ability. When I want input from others, I will ask for it. I DO NOT NEED (NOR WILL I EVER WANT) SUGGESTIONS from an automated AI.

    Please disable them and only make it an opt-in…

    The new integrated Skype for Business experience is now available on the new Outlook on the Web for all customers worldwide.

    If you have a Skype for Business account (and have not yet been migrated to Teams), you should see a Skype logo in the right half of the top header upon signing in.

    If you have already been fully migrated to Teams, then instead of a Skype logo, you should see a button (it looks like chat bubbles) that opens Microsoft Teams in a new browser tab.

    You may need to clear your browser cache and/or refresh your Outlook Web session to see the newly rolled out changes.

  3. How do I get rid of the "tab" that auto completes phrases? Its annoying and I do not know how it got there

    How do I get rid of that annoying "Auto complete" tab that shows up in every document and e-mail I write

    Hey thanks for your feedback. We’re transitioning all our users over to this new experience.

    We’ve put popular settings into our new Quick Settings pane (click the settings gear in the header to access it), which may help you personalize your experience and enjoy OWA a little more.

    First off, thank you ALL for providing such detailed feedback around some of the performance issues you had faced. Over the last few weeks we have been shipping out a variety of fixes that will address some of the issues that were reported.

    The items that we fixed were largely around some specific browser and Operating System combinations.

    If you are hitting any other performance issues, please open up a new feedback or ticket and we will debug those as well.

    Thanks!

  6. Outlook to create Teams meeting by default when you schedule a meeting

    Possibility to select an option so that every meeting you schedule in outlook is a Teams meeting and contains the information to join
    This should be available for the user to configure but also for the admin to force for all users in the organization

    Thank you for all of the feedback. We really do read all of it and have been making changes to the new Outlook on the Web experience.

    I did just want to let you know that while we are working through feedback if there are things you still need in the old experience you can just toggle back to the old one.

    Hope it helps

  9. DO NOT OPEN CALENDAR, CONTACTS or TASKS in a new window!

    Do not open calendar, contacts or tasks in a new window, or at least make that configurable!

    If you're using a browser-app window (Chrome is capable of that) than you have an application window for Outlook 365, with Icon on the desktop and all, and you have no tabs in that window.
    If the calendar and the others are opened in a new window, a new browser window with that tab opens and you loose the overview you have with that integrated browser-web-application.

    So for now I am back to the old version due to this.

  13. 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.

    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.

  15. 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?

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

    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
