Search Suggestions/Autofill Is Inconsistent
The suggested/autofill for search doesn't seem to consistently work - it sometimes doesn't return autofill/suggestions as you start typing (or will only present suggested searches after you conduct a keyword search and click into the search box again) but sometimes does and when you start typing a contact it doesn't always return a search for messages from that sender.
Search for People is super-glitchy. I click in the search bar and it shows some recent searches, but after a second or 2, they disappear.
If you moved your mouse and clicked, you actually clicked on the Favourite button underneath lol.
Current feature: It's great to be able to search all your folders or select folders for a category using the following method in the search bar:
However, it would be nice that when typing the name, it does an auto search showing the categories with that partial name as it's being typed. Current functionality requires knowing the entire name by memory OR going to the category field and copying the name to paste in the search bar. Google gmail is slick in that it does the auto search as I am typing.
Most of my contacts don't get found when I start typing their name. eg. I type "Peter" and it only finds one contact. I click "Search Directory" and no further entries are found, but if I click "To" I can clearly find several "Peter"s listed.
Really really annoying, when my other email platform finds contact information really quickly.
I like the interface of the new outlook however it is still a work in progress. I have been trying to search in my calendar and each time I receive an error message that lets me know something went wrong and asks me to refresh the page. After refreshing several times the problem persists. Even in different browsers.
search is very slow and older was better
