Start a new email, event, etc inline instead of opening in a new window
When you create a new email, event, etc, it would be better if you could create that inline in the current window instead of a new window. For an example of this, look at creating how the experience works when creating a new email in Outlook OWA. Having everything in one window allows you to interact with Outlook while drafting your new email etc without having to switch windows.
With the 11/11 Insider Fast release of the new Outlook, we now open new email, replies, inline
In the Calendar grid, double click or drag to create a quick event without leaving the window.
It's great that features are being brought into the product but why not make this a switchable option as it's such a big function to the workflow and doesn't work for everyone including me. It would be great if I can select an option so that new or reply to emails are created in a separate window rather than the reading pane.
Awesome! It's great to see this functionality added so quickly. Thanks so much! The inline event creation is a good start. In the future, I'd love to have the ability to edit every aspect of an event inline. Today, you still have to open a new event in a new window if you need to edit certain aspects of the event.
It looks like you can already do this in the Calendar by dragging a block of time, you get a mini-modal instead of a new window.
