How can we improve Outlook on the web?

The search function is not as functional as the previous version

The previous version had great advanced options that appeared on the left of the screen to narrow down your search - specifically for example if I search for a word and then it allows me to select "from" email address - this is not easily done in the new version.

    There's no way to filter the search to only show items from the inbox, trash, specific folder, etc. (A lot is missing from the search function now that used to be there, but this is one specific detail I haven't already seen mentioned)

    I cannot use the new Outlook because the search mail folders function is not there at the top left. I count on that search function.
