Missing sorting options Outlook 2016 V2

I would have replied to the original post but it has been locked.

The reason for the reply is a THANK YOU to Microsoft for listening, eventually. The sorting feature in the latest version is much easier - now only 2 clicks which is soooo much simpler. It provides the functionality required that was removed last year.

So a positive outcome and a thank you


Hi Bill,


I have done many tests and the sorting feature has been changed in the latest Monthly Channel(Version 1802 Build 9029.2167). The UI was changed to the latest by design and the feature all works normal. If you do want Outlook bring back the old UI, I recommend you create a new vote in Outlook UserVoice for feedback. Microsoft set high values on customer’s feedback.


Besides, as Lance mentioned, the UI hasn’t been changed in Outlook with Semi-Annual Channel. You can follow the link he provided and revert to the previous version as a workaround.


Your understanding and patience is highly appreciated.


Best regards,
