    • 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.

      • Password change

        I had to change my AD password the other day from my desktop computer. My phone app stopped working, but I didn't notice right away because it never indicated to me in any obvious way that it wasn't working. I just finally noticed that my calendar wasn't showing appointments and then noticed that my email wasn't refreshing. I am now trying to figure out how I can change it in OWA and cant seem to figure out how to do it. If there is a way, maybe you can make it more obvious. I cant even uninstall it and re-install…

              • Support for exchange servers, handling tasks and reminders from the App

                Till now we still miss exchange server support, It would be great if we can manage our tasks and reminders from the app.

                Thanks,
                Maged Ahmed

                      Please enable/ support for older devices running on Android 4.3 (jelly bean), as Sony is not going to update to Kitkat version, as the hardware of Sony Xperia M dual would not be supporting Android 4.4.4.

                      • Need more reliable calendar notifications - most of the time I don't receive them (on two different devices)

                        It's hard to pin down, but it seems like I must be looking at OWA or have just switched to another app in the last 2-3 minutes to get calendar notifications. This isn't a problem for email notifications. I always receive those. We do have a 5 minute timeout/lock policy on the app via Exchange Online policy.

                        • It is too slow.

                          Initialize and change screens is too slow.

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

                                  • [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.

                                      • signout functionality, configuring multiple accounts.

                                        Sign out functionality is a must even if this is just pre-release version. Not sure how that is missed. Can't Confige multiple account - another downside.

                                        • 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.
