  1. "Downloading Update"

    For the past few days the app has said:
    "Downloading an app update. This may take a few minutes"

    No emails will open and this message will not disappear. Please fix!

        • Please fix OWA.

          The Application does not work, it is stuck on "downloading App...." message. See all the forums.

          • Tell us how to resolve the "you need to reset OWA" error

            I’ve been using your OWA for Android (pre-release) app for about a year with stellar results. Last weekend, however, I updated all of my PlayStore apps, and now the OWA app will not let me access email. There is no comparison between the OWA app and the Microsoft Outlook app, so I rely heavily on OWA and need to get it going again. I have uninstalled, cleared cache and reinstalled OWA app numerous times to no avail. Each time it seems to connect to outlook.office365.com and then tries to connect to my mailbox but fails.

                      • Passcode required, can’t press “continue”

                        The app says the I need a 4 digit passcode that I will need every time I use the app. There is a “continue”button but nothing happens, I have reset, reinstalled but still the same. I did not have this problem until I updated to a new device.

                                • Take the best parts of OWA and Outlook and combine their tech

                                  I have been trying to get a customer's calendar integration set correctly for several days now. I find that the outlook app for iOS and Droid is able to sync calendars as long as they are tied to a licensed account(not a resource) and are able to allow my users to tap an address and load it directly into their map software, but they cannot add a non-licensed resource, and none of the color-coding they apply to their calendars carry over. By contrast, OWA allows users to add non-licensed calendars over as shared resources, and all of the color coding…

                                    • “Where field” in calendar should link to map software

                                      Pretty self-explanatory. Whenever there is an address entered into a calendar event, the user should be able to tap the address and have it open up in their map software for easy directions.
