[UI Enhancement] - Merge the "New" buttons
Idea shared by kevind - 11/29/2018 at 8:11 AM
Under Consideration
Idea: Put a drop-down arrow on the blue "New" button inside the mail section (just like the Delete & Reply buttons have).
  • When you click New it goes into compose (like it does now).
  • When you click the arrow next to New, you can choose Calendar, Contact, etc.
Right now, there's a '+' sign inside a circle in the top menu and users don't know what it's for. Suggest removing that strange button across the top and replacing it with the above idea.

This cleans things up, eliminates confusion, and makes SM17 simpler to use. Thanks!

I second this request.  It's how Exchange OWA handles the "New" button and it's quite useful.

Kevin, SmarterMail 16 and 17 already have this functionality available in menu.

Robert, please re-read my post (I updated it to be clearer).  I'm saying you should get rid of that '+' menu button with a circle around it.

Just trying to make a few UI tweaks to make SM consistent with other mail platforms. This would reduce training and support for users. Thanks.
Just bringing this idea up again to see if it can get submitted this to the developers for consideration.
