  1. Dark mode needs dark compose

    Dark mode needs to include message compose. Currently UI is dark but new compose message is eye searing white.

    Hi all – Just wanted to let you know that as of today we are starting to roll out support for dark compose. This will mean you don’t have to have the white screen when writing an email.

    Also this week you should now be able to select themes when you have dark mode enabled!

    Thanks for the awesome feedback and suggestions.

  2. Distribution Groups removed from settings menu.

    Need to be able to access Distribution Groups (not Office 365 Groups) from OWA like in old version so users can self-service join/leave.

    Hi all – Thanks again for providing us with all of the feedback. I just wanted to let everyone know that you should now be seeing Distribution Group Management in the new Outlook on the web experience.

    You might need to refresh your browser.

    Thanks, and keep the great feedback coming!

  3. Where is the notification bell?

    And also, why does it open a new tab every time I go to the calendar? That's really stupid

    Notification bell has been shipped to all Enterprise users, and we’ve fixed it so that each module opens in the same tab.

    By the way, we’re working on adding some new scenarios to the notifications bell. Could you take this survey to let us know what scenarios you are most interested in?

    First off, thank you for taking the time to use the new Outlook on the web experience and for taking the time to provide feedback! I just wanted to let you know that we do have signature settings in the experience already.

    Click on the gear in the top right hand corner.

    In the search box type in signature.

    This will show a link to the Email Signature. Which will then take you right to the signature settings.

    Thanks!

  5. The search function doesn't work

    The search function is not working! this is why google is so much better than outlook. I would never use this if it wasn't imposed by my employer.

    Hi all – Just wanted to let you know that as of today you should be able to start picking themes when you are in dark mode. This should give you a bit more options to make it look and feel like your own!

    Also over the next two weeks we are also adding dark compose for when you are writing your emails. This way you don’t have to see a white screen as well :)

    Thanks for the suggestions!

  8. Calendar Searching

    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.

    We have completed the work that allows you to search and add a users calendar. After executing a search for a resolved person, you will see an option at the top of the list view that allows you to “Add Calendar”. Once you do this, you will be able to see both calendars together.

  9. No Shared mailboxes with new Outlook

    I used share mailboxes a lot as a small business. With the new outlook, I was no longer able to switch to my shared mailboxes. I immediately switched back. This needs to be fixed.

    Hi there – I just wanted to provide an update and give some more information about the Shared Mailboxes.

    First the easiest solution is to click on the Picture/Initials in the top right hand corner (me card) and select Open Mailbox. This way you can open the full mailbox in another tab.

    The second option, you can right click on the Folders word in the left pane (folder list). From here select Add Shared Folder.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks

  11. Good / Awesome / Great

    I *love* the new calendar view that shows today as double-width. So much better use of screen space for what I care about most.

    Best feature I've seen come to outlook in a VERY long time.

  12. 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.

    Thank you for your feedback! The deployment for an option to switch to more saturated calendar colors in the new Outlook on the web is now complete.

    If you would like to try out this experience, please click on the gear icon in the top right of your calendar module to access your settings, and toggle “Bold event colors”.

    I used to be able to drag the email attachments to a new email but I cannot do that in the new version

  16. Cannot add New Event into a shared Calendar

    In Calendar, you can view a calendar shared among people, but when you click +New Event, it will only allow you to add the Event into a calendar you own. This is not very efficient for a calendar that requires many Events from several different people.
