    Why aren't notifications for new emails working? Notifications for calendar appointments work but email notifications do not.

        • Repair the auto sync feature and develop a calendar or agenda widget.

          This app is great in principle, however it has stopped syncing automatically. A calendar and agenda widget would be incredibly helpful. Please release full version soon. Looking forward to it!

                    • 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.

                      • Samsung 5S

                        Android APP on Samsung 5S when logging in I get error message, "We found your settings, but couldn't connect to the server because it was temporarily unavailable." I can access OWA through the web and also on my desktop Microsoft Outlook. App did work on my previous IPhone.

                            • Calander Views needs to be improved

                              It would be useful if the views for the calander can mirror those of Outlook or OWA where the option to see an entire week, month or day is displayed using the color categories in the daily view.

                                  OWA app is generally pretty darn good, mail, search and calendar work great, but please fix the contact sync- contacts from the exchange 365 server do not sync with the OWA app, making it very difficult to compose and send Emails

                                  • I should be able to see an Office365 regular or shared calendar inside the android system calendar so I have ONE central calendar view.

                                    Think about how people use their devices. I don't need two systems. I have android, and I can sync standard calendars into one view. You wouldn't need a widget if able to link main AND/OR shared calendars as options for "calendars to sync". Then users can see personal, professional, social, relational calendars in one place.
                                    Regular exchange can do this in iOS and Android, but only for MAIN calendars, not shared. You are so close. Office 365 would rock, as there is nobody that can do this cross-platform without heavy 3rd-party tools that are buggy.

                                    • Enable the Notes to be sorted

                                      The "Notes" section does not seem to allow any change of sort order.mthat would be quite helpful
