  1. Email signature

    Even though I've created my email signature multiple times, OWA continually Defaults to "sent from OWA app" signature. I love the app but will discontinue using it if it doesn't retain my signature. How can I make my signature permanent?

    • "Setting up to work offline"

      I keep getting messages on the app saying it is setting up to work offline and it will take a few minutes.

      I left the app open and active for 30+ minutes and the same message appears.

      Either set it up or don't - I don't need this constant reminder of something that doesn't seem to happen

        • Disconnected

          The app does not appear to be working.
          When it tries to connect, it says it's disconnected.

                • Calendar is blank!!!

                  Highly irritating. I choose calendar from the OWA app and it shows the template but only some of my events. It seems to have my all day events, but everything else is MIA. I can toggle back and forth and finally get them to appear, but I can't relay on the validity of the entries ....

                      • Selection of more than one email to delete, move to another folder

                        We were be able to do this before, select more than one file, now you have to do it individually which is quite annoying. Will be nice and faster to have this option.

                          Constantly says at bottom of screen it is setting up to work offline and will take a few minutes. Notification never goes away and it never seems to update, no matter how much time i give it.

                            • OWA app stopped displaying message contents

                              All the sudden the OWA app for iPad does no longer display the contents of a message on the right side of the screen.
                              The message list shows as before, but no contents in the reading pane.
                              Even selecting the reading view, no contents is displayed, on any message.
                              I reinstalled the app, but no change.

                                I think it would be cool if we could log out and/or add other outlook accounts that we have because I have a school outlook account and one for outside of school but I can't log out of my school account to get to it on the app.

                                    I don't seem to find a way to see my monthly or weekly calendar, a function I really want. I also want the whole day to be visible, not just a few hours at the time.

                                      • Calendar reminders not synced

                                        Calendar reminders appear for entries that have been deleted from my calendar. It's like the reminders are not synced with the calendar.

                                        • Continuous syncing offline

                                          EVERY time I use the app now, I get a message saying that the app is syncing to work offline and will take a few minutes. However, once it finishes, it said it had already been setup to work offline. It's super annoying and am seriously considering deleting the app until this is fixed.
