How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Old calendar UI was more readable (fonts/colors)

The old calendar UI (colored blocks with white text) was more readable than the new version. The new version is too bright/harder to look at.

    Less is more. I like the old Outlook better because it is very clean and minimal. I do not like the new version with the colours (e.g. each contact person has a his initials in a coloured circle).

    what are those pastel colours ? we can't distinguish one from the others

    The colors on the calendar aren't as distinct as they used to be. It's harder to distinguish between different events now

    Old version calendar had option to color block items at top, or all day items. Now it's only the font.

    I loved how bright the old colors were. It was easy to tell them apart. I feel like the different shades of colors all look the same now

    The new look makes the messages so big only a couple fit on the screen so you have to scroll too much. It also doesn't show you the unread messages once you get into the folder. Not great.

    The new Outlook is terrible to view and work with. Please go back to the old version and quit messing things up!

    For me changing the color schema on the events means that my desktop Outlook coloring does not match the coloring in OWA anymore. I'd prefer keeping it the same.

    I personally liked the old calendar format better. I liked being able to see everyones daily schedule off to the side without having to expand the day. It was also a lot easier to identify everyone's schedule by color as well.

    Hate the fact that its one boring screen. I like how you can change color schemes on the old version. Please make that available on new Outlook and make it "Saveable" please! Thanks
