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.

Search field was moved to the top of the page, now within the header graphic of the page. I suppose it depends on your header graphic how easily it will be seen now. Moving things is a time honored specialty of those "updating" software. Specialists I tell you.
There needs to be a better way to search for emails; this takes way too long!
Search function only showed most relevant searches, and did not provide the opportunity to search more than the first 3 emails... Would have liked to see more than those three emails in the search

When I attempt to search for an email by subject, Outlook would show an error message that said something like "Nothing available" but when I searched by email address I was able to locate the desired email.
Also I could not tell which emails had been check and which hadn't. I struggled to figure out how to download attached docs initially.
Usig a Mac and Firefox, could not even locate the search fuctionality? Even worse than the prior version which I thought was seriously lacking :(
Search feature is ineffective. Need to be able to search for an email address and a word like in the older version.
it so limited taht is hard to use.
Not sure if it has been mentioned in the comments... when you search for an email address that you've sent a message to, but haven't received a message from, the thread does not show in the results.
New Version search function is very limited. Cannot filter for attachments.
In new version search is not good. I can not find mails in new version. Old version search is good.
Search functionality doesn't seem to handle request. Constantly waiting for results that don't come, no indication of loading either.
In the Calendar: Using the old outlook, the search function was able to pull up a coworkers calendar to see their schedule and availability. Using the new outlook, the search function only looked for my events on my own calendars. Please allow other calendars to be searched for.
I cannot even figure out how to search ...

not able to search folder specific or globally.
for specific results it directly give no item found.
Using the search bar only brings results from inbox or sent, but not both at the same time. If I search someone's email I want all emails to show up that appear in my inbox and that appear in my sent box. It's annoying to have to switch between the two. Thanks!
I am looking for an email for a specific sender. It never find any answer and take a real long time.
So It does not work on the new version. With the old version, i have an answer immediately.

Make search easier
I agree with Phil F about the exact search. Like searching throughout history, when you enter a phrase in quotes, only the phrase should be found.

Search feature does not work on archived emails.
