    Thanks for the feedback.
    In the new OWA calendar experience, you can open another person’s calendar to clicking on the “Import calendar” link in the left panel and in the dialog, click on the “Import from directory” option. This will let your search and open another person’s calendar.

  2. 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.

  3. Remove or Make Top Results Optional

    Remvoe "Top Results" or make it optional. Search results need to be displayed chonologically. Outlook on the web is no use without proper search.

  4. Search is difficult to use - like old verison where you can search for a person, select them, and then search for a key word

    Search is difficult to use. I prefer the old verison where you can search for a person, select them, and then search for a key word

  5. 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.

  8. Search is still TERRIBLE

    You should be able to search To:, From:, Subject:, etc. just like the desktop version.

  9. deeper search option

    Offer deeper search in new outlook.

    Currently when I search in the new outlook it doesn't pull up all of the search results, only the more recent. I had to switch back to the old outlook to pull up older messages

    We recommend using the Advanced Search for more targeted searches like you are describing.

    Click on the button in the right side of the search bar, which should say the folder name (for example, “All folders”). When you click this button, a dropdown menu will appear with a number of fields you can use to narrow down your search.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback! I just wanted to follow-up quickly with you to let you know that Email Search is still in the new Experience.

    If you look at the top center of the screen you will see a search box. From there you can search for all of your mail like the old experience.

    Hope this helps!
