How can we improve Outlook on the web?

I need access to people, calendar, reminders from the same mail window/tab like in the old version. New version opens new tabs.

        Just don't default to opening a new tab when someone clicks from contacts, calendar, inbox to one of the other areas. This is completely unnecessary and just makes me have to close extra tabs.

        1. Option to not open your calendar in a new window, prefer to toggle between inbox and calendar in the same tab/window. 2

        Browsers already provide functionaility to open a link in a new tab if the user desires (e.g. middle mouse click). In the old version, users had a choice. Now users are forced into a single, annoying behavior.

        Browsers already have builtin ways to open a link in a new tab if the user so desires (e.g. middle mouse click). A regular click shouldn't open a new tab. This new behavior is forcing users into a specific (and as others mention, annoying) pattern when they previously had a choice.

        every time you want to switch to the calendar or switch back to the mails the web interface open a new tab. that is very annoying

        Maybe a way to configure that behavior woud be nice.

        in the old when switching between email and calendar it did it in the same window in the new it opens a new tab, i want the feature of opening anew window optional.

        Please also include a convenient tab for notifications like in the old version so I can see what my tasks are for the day without opening a new window.

        I wish that the calendar would open on the same tab. I don't like that it opens a new tab for the calendar and one for the mail. The way it does it now it's a lot better.

        I really dislike that going from Mail to Calendar opens a new tab. It feels less like an app, and I end up losing my place.
