Transient Office365 OWA searching glitch
In which I share today's Office365 OWA searching bug.
What I was trying to do
I was trying to search for emails involving the firstname.lastname@example.org email list, so that I could reply to one of them.
(See screenshot in post image.)
- Clicked into search box
- Typed "lic"
- Observed handy suggestion of filtering on From: email@example.com. Handy! Appreciated!
- Clicked the suggestion.
- Nothing happened.
- Furiously clicked the suggestion several more times.
- More nothing happened.
What should have happened
Step 4 should have populated the search with the syntax for filtering on
from: firstname.lastname@example.org and submitted the search.
Logging out and logging back in, the search UI seemed to have changed and I was no longer able to replicate this experience.
And then a few minutes later it changed back and I am again able to replicate the experience.
