Jul. 1, 2019

You have the option to toggle between the Old Outlook and New Outlook versions in the Office 365 Outlook web application based upon your preferences.

2. Locate the toggle button to switch between Old Outlook and New Outlook at the upper right.

Outlook New and Old toggle
You can toggle between new and old Outlook views.

The overall interface and functionality of the following areas in Office 365 are impacted with the new version:

  • Outlook
  • Calendar
  • People

Please note if you are currently using Office 365 to manage a Distribution Group, the Distribution Group settings are currently accessible only through the Old Outlook.

Microsoft has not yet announced any date for a full rollover to the New Outlook version, but we will continue to keep the community informed if that changes.

Microsoft is continuing to collect feedback from users on their experience with the New Outlook. If you have any feedback you wish to share directly with Microsoft, you can do so through the UserVoice forums. When you toggle off the New Outlook button, you will receive the following popup window:

Clicking on the Share feedback button allows you to vote or comment on other
people’s feedback/ideas or leave your own.

Clicking on the Share feedback button will take you to the forms where you can vote or comment on other people’s feedback/ideas or leave your own.
