  1. Compose New Email Button Does Nothing (intermittent)

    A lot of the time after launching the OWA for Android app, then clicking the "new email" button, nothing happens.

    Sometimes the new email screen shows up after a long time (~10 seconds later), and sometimes it shows up right away.

        • [Privacy] Allow disable Offline Viewing completely.

          Currently, OWA app syncs and stores ALL messages from Inbox and Draft folders in the phone, so they are available in offline mode as well. The downside is that messages are stored locally and user has no control over it.

          User should have a choice to disable Offline Viewing completely, so no messages from Inbox and/or Draft folders are stored in phone.

          • Update for android lollipop

            Worked fine on my Nexus 5 until I updated to Android Lollipop. Now it says "Couldn't connect. We found your settings, but couldn't connect to the server because it was temporarily unavailable. Try again later or contact your helpdesk."

            I've cleared cahce/data and reinstalled.

            • It is too slow.

              Initialize and change screens is too slow.

              The app is good but, a little bit faster would make great success.

                • How to setup app to keep no messages/folders for offline view?

                  I use my default email app to sync messages for 1 week and I want to use OWA just to access emails that I cannot access with my default email app. Saying that, I don't want OWA to sync Inbox and Draft messages for Offline view. None. Not a one message. Zilch. Zero. How can I do that? I want access OWA just for online view, not offline. I don't want app to store copies of all Inbox and Draft messages. How can by Offline support turned off completely?

                          • Add Tasks

                            The OWA app is not compete without tasks. As a dedicated Outlook user for many years, I have developed a daily planning system which includes planning my calendar each day after reviewing my mail and my tasks. How can I plan my calendar without Tasks.
                            In order for the OWA app to be fully functional, you need to be able to monitor your current tasks and have a place to capture new tasks.
                            Big whole.

                              Can you add support for earlier versions of Microsoft Outlook. My employer is using Outlook 2010 and would love to use this app but can't because only the newest Outlook version is supported.

                                • calendar entries with conference call phone numbers and dial-in codes should automatically be hot-linked to autodial.

                                  In OWA on Android, if a calendar entry has a conference call number and a dial-in number, they do not show up as hot-links to have the phone auto-dial the number for you. Makes it very difficult to join a conference.

                                        • Widgets, especially a calendar one.

                                          Nice to have some home screen widgets such as the calendar one provided by Google and other calendar apps. That is the feature preventing me from switching over completely.
