  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.

    • Disable all email notifications

      Microsoft stated here https://owa.uservoice.com/forums/255426-owa-for-android-pre-release/suggestions/6125173-allow-notifications-to-be-disabled that a feature was completed to allow disabling of all email notifications. This is incorrect. I can disable notifications for calendar reminders (with sound on/off), but there is no option to disable notifications for email (which is what I really would like to do).
      There should be 3 options: Regular notifications (with sound), Silent notifications that still appear in the notification list, and None (no noise, nothing added to the notification list).

      When you check email on a PC regularly, and on your phone occasionally, you really don't need to be pinged all day about emails…

      • 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?

                • Add Exchange Tasks

                  I like that I can finally sync without issue with recurring calendar items. What is the chance of adding exchange task sync?

                          • OWA resets after adding second Exchange account to stock email app

                            I added a second Exchange account to the stock email account, since OWA only supports one account. Unbeknownst to me, this required OWA to reset, wiping out my first account, so I didn't receive emails. I understand this is probably caused by security settings, but at the very least, I would expect a notification from OWA that it needs to reset.

                              • Display width set incorrectly

                                Sometimes when switching views the main menu display is set to the wrong width, so I have to scroll left to see the "two squares and a rectangle" icon and right to see the mail/people/calendar icons.
                                Usually, the display is set to the width of the screen, so everything is on a single screen.

                                  When scrolling through contacts, there should be an alphabetic scroll bar on the side so you can jump to a specific letter.

                                    • 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!
