First, I want to thank everyone for using the product and sharing with us your feedback.
This is great feedback and we are discussing the need to provide the basic filtering function for Search. We will update once a decision is made.
In the mean time, I’d like to share a temporary solution to ease your pain. It’s a bit more technical so not everyone is going to be comfortable with it. I apologize for that in advance. You can add “isread:no” (without the quotes) after the search term (separate your search term and isread:no with a space) which will filter the search results to show only unread emails.
Thank you for helping us make Outlook.com better!
I've been asked for this one countless times by my colleagues here at the college (as well as our students)
Search folders or saved filters are such a time save in users normal daily workflows. It's been one of the reasons I can't persuade some staff to move away from the desktop client into the web version, because it actually takes them longer to work online.
In particular this kind of functionality is essential for PA's or secretarial staff, but is also really useful for support staff who handle masses of email on a daily basis.
While I was working in the legal sector, search folders or saved filter type functionality was used all the time.
I'd like to be able to use Teams in the College for staff to book onto training sessions - its something that outlook appointments just can't accommodate as it doesn't allow anyone with the link to review the sessions available and pick the one they want to attend. Bookings would be great for this, but it needs to allow multiple users to book onto a session, at the same time.
I run a whole series of internal traninig sessions and workshops for my colleagues in a further education college.
When bookings became available i'd hoped we would be able to use it for internal events for internal staff members- but it doesn't allow this.
It would be great if....
1) A customer (internal user) could log in, using their Office 365 account and pull through their Active Directory / Office 365 profile details.
2) They could then book onto courses or events with multiple spaces, i.e an event for 50 staff to book onto individually.
3) If there are multiple instances of a training session running, that they be able to select which session they would like to attend.
This would make Bookings a massively useful tool for us at the college, and would go some way to justifying our A5 office 365 licenses.
the ability to rename the URL too is very important. i.e if you change company name, or booking page details, you also need the option to change the URL
I'd welcome this too - we need to have a way of offering internal only bookings - importing customers isn't suitable because it changes so often.
It would be preferential if we could select an AD or Azure AD group to make bookings types, or a whole booking site available to, that way we could allow certain types of staff, or both staff and students to have access and make a booking.
We're an education provider and have over 600 full time staff,. We would like to use bookings for staff to enroll on internal training courses, and book other resources.
This would be an essential feature for teaching and education.
It would allow customers to book onto specific training events or sessions, or book appointments on designated open days with specific members of staff.
Jared mentioned this would be useful for parent / teacher interviews and I could definitely see a use case for that in our college.
This is infuriating and incredibly distracting at work. I want to receive notifications about emails received, but please. ake it once per send and receive session, not once per email I don't need to hear a sound for every email received. with spam etc, I could be receiving 50 emails in one session and that constant chattering notification sound is not enjoyable.
Please fix ASAP, else will have to remove the app.
yep, I'd like this too. most other android mail clients can. drop emails from the search screen. when searching you should be able to bulk select all results, or the ones you need to and then delete / archive / mark as spam.
I get hundreds of spam messages every day , and that's after my mail company filter them. I just want an easy way of getting rid of them all!
