  1. Restore the ability to search Public folder calendars

    recently the new search within Outlook broke the ability for searching of public folder calendars. This has been confirmed and replicated by Microsoft technical support. Previous version of Microsoft search allowed this. I have have 250 users across 25 companies that use public folder calendars, and that have lost this ability. if you need references: Microsoft case number: 22228511 references this problem. Please address this bug, and restore the search function.

  3. New Idea: Why not consolodate all the Outlook search feedback since mainly it is location or usability related

    I have a number of issues with search the biggest is the box location though, you should be able to revert it. Steals screen space, could be in the ribbon where I see All/Unread and of taking half an inch of the top of my screen. I tend to accidentally de-full screen outlook when I attempt to click in it. I would attach to an existing user voice but it looks like many disparate user voices out there, same key driver.

  4. Keyword "folder:" fails in Outlook searches

    In the past, keyword "folder:" could be used to narrow search to items found in specific folder. This function does no longer work since latest updates.
    Can this be fixed to recover the original functionality?

  5. Outlook: Move message fails after search

    Following a Search, it is not possible to move a message to another folder using the Move function of message window. It is still possible to close the message and drag the message from "inbox" window to destination folder in Folder pane. This problem started to occur after latest updates.
    Can this be fixed to recover the original functionality?

  6. Outlook: Chained search fails

    Since latest updates, when "Find Related Messages in this conversation" is used on results of a previous search, the result is "No results" found. Can this be fixed to recover the original functionality?

  7. Possibility to search in Outlook tasks, which were added via Pop-up to Outlook Mail

    I've added my tasks on the right side in Outlook mails, but there is no possibility to search for a task in the list. I need a little box (just like the box to add a new task) to enter a part of the title or content of the task to find it.

  8. Improve error messages for bookmarks, fields are not highlighted

    The error messages are unclear when you try to publish a bookmark. Here is an error message I see often: "There are some errors on the page. Please review and update any highlighted fields. If no fields are highlighted please try again later." However, no fields are highlighted, so I do not know if there is a formatting issue, or whether I actually need to just try again later. I also waited a day and tried to publish again. I reached out to Microsoft directly and they said no one had reported this issue yet. Please update the error messages…

  10. Make it so that external users also get redirected by the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function

    外部ユーザーも "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能によりページ遷移するようにしたい
    Make it so that external users also get redirected by the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function


    ■Description(内容):
    テナントのユーザーの場合は Microsoft Search を利用できるため、"クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能が利用できるが、外部ユーザーは Microsoft Search を利用できないため、 "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" の機能を利用できない。外部ユーザーが Microsoft Search を利用できるように機能を拡充、もしくは "クエリの送信先にする検索結果ページ" 機能そのものの機能拡充を希望します。

    Since users in your tenant can use Microsoft Search, they can use the “Which search results page should queries be sent to?” function, but since external users cannot use Microsoft Search, they also cannot use “Which search results page should queries be sent to?”. Please make it so that external users can use Microsoft Search, or…

  11. Search all the different historical Malware or Ransomware or PUA files or emails that exist in our environment

    We recently picked ransomware in one of the old emails, it was alerted through Defender. Is it possible to search all the different historical Malware or Ransomware or PUA files or emails that exist in our environment (Exchange Online, Sharepoint, etc...) and we've not been alerted or aware of them. The malware/PUA/Ransomware can be of any type or any name or any extension or any format and we are not aware of the details and would consider as concealed or archived in the user’s mailbox as an example.

  15. outlook search not working right

    when i search outlook the results did not come up. Your tech support helped me and the guy gave the following reason:- "Sometimes, when the Outlook is trying to finish the sync process, which is run frequently to keep your mailbox updated, the search function could be delayed a bit."
    my response was as follows:-
    "ok I suppose I will just need to give it more time if it happens again but it was strange that I could see the june invoice email in that folder and it wasn't coming up on the search. I think this is an issue…

  16. Index Microsoft Office Tags as metadata

    Microsoft Office files allows you to add tags to a document from the document information panel. You can also view and update the tags column in File Explorer. However, if the document is saved to SharePoint Online, the tags content is not indexed by Microsoft Search.

    It would be useful for this text to be indexed and also to support searching on this attribute (e.g. where tags contains 'proposal')

  17. In Outlook search results, can you please tell me what mailbox the item came from?

    It can be hard to tell what mailbox an item is in because if you go to the file->current folder, the mailbox is not listed. It just says "contacts" for example. I have 4 or 5 mailboxes in my Outlook, so I have no idea which contacts folder it is talking about.

  18. Outlook search terms should not erase when changing folders or mailboxes

    Can you please make the search terms in the "search at top" feature survive a folder or mailbox change? That way I can search in various folders and mailboxes without having to re-type the terms.

    I use Outlook at work. I recently noticed in the upper right hand corner of the screen the "Coming Soon" button. So, I flipped it on. When trying the new Search field at the top to search my email, you CAN'T Copy and Paste into it. That is something I wish you guys would fix. Thanks.
