There are two ways to get more votes:

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Goes Offline and won't come back online

    On my Nexus 5 with Lollipop, the app randomly goes offline every few days, and will not reconnect without either uninstalling/reinstalling, or disabling device administrator, force stopping the app, clearing data/cache, and then setting up the account again.

    • Touch is too sensitive and opens emails when trying to scroll

      When trying to scroll through emails the app thinks you clicked an email and opens it instead of scrolling. It is almost impossible to scroll through folders or emails in the new version.

      • Stopped updating It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails.

        Stopped updating. It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails. Got it to update 2 days ago by re-installing but then yesterday it stopped updating again. Also now intermittently says "to view items in offline mode select all" when there is a connection and should not be offline.

                      • notifications

                        As a user I only wish to receive notifications for my calendar not email. Could these be separated out into 2 one/off toggle switches "Email notifications" and "Calendar notifications". By default have both turned on and be prompted to select your preference after installation?

                                • Adding contacts from Android app to OWA address book, but they don't show up in People or Outlook

                                  Both my aftermarket dialer app and the factory contacts app can add contacts to the OWA (exchange) address book, and can see them there as well as the other contacts from OWA people, but they arn't seen in OWA people or on outlook.

                                  I love being able to use my outlook contacts in my android apps, but i also want to maintain them (especially add to them) from my normal android apps and not have to go through a special process to get them in my outlook contact folder.

                                  Your close, keep going!

                                  Using office 365 with a Note-4 running…

                                  • I need to be able to see my other contact folders and especially contacts from corporate shared mailboxes!

                                    This is very important. As a business we put our customers in our a shared mailbox contact folder, and our vendors in another one etc. I can see them in outlook, I can see my contact folders in office 365 people, but i can see neither in OWA for android.

                                    For business users with multiple people working in a company this is very important.

                                    Please implement!

                                      • Keep running in background, automatically download new email, maintain cache.

                                        Starting the app takes over 10 seconds to get past the loading screen. I wish this app would stay alive in the background or keep a local cache so I don't have to wait. It should also automatically download new emails instead of waiting for me to open the app...and then wait for the emails to load.
                                        I'm looking for a streamlined process!
