How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Group Owner unable to edit group membership

In the new UI, I (as a group owner) am unable to remove members from a group or remove ownership status. I have to switch to the old UI to do that.

    Can add/edit group members if I'm using a Chrome browser but not an IE browser - have to go back to old version to be able to do it in IE.

    I cannot edit and add a new client unless the email ends with .com, but in my country the emails end in .co.za? I have to revert to the old site to add a new member to my group.

    It is very difficult to edit existing groups. It takes longer to edit a group than to make a new one.

    Yes, editing members is clumsy or not possible in new UI. I used to go to People in browser, it was easy, now neither client or web app allows easily editing users such as changing their email. I also experienced the screen just turning grey issue described herein.

    Tried to edit Group membership, but when I clicked on the "*** members" link the screen just turned gray and never showed me the members. Had to revert to the old Outlook to get to the membership screen.

    Using the new Outlook I am unable to Edit a group. Can not change group details.

    Need to be able to add/remove O365 Group Members. This is disabled in the new experience.

    I agree, now it is very difficult to administrate Groups, it takes long time. I switch back to the older version.

    I cannot "approve" a contact request of joining to my group directly from the Request Message. I need to return to the older version.

    Agreed - the members list view from the group conversation is the most useful way to manage members of an Office 365 group. The view on the site isn't anywhere near as friendly. So yes, please add it back in the new Outlook. There are a little too many old features missing from the new view to make it viable to switch
