      • Touch-ID

        It would be nice, if the OWA-app under iOS support the touch-id to unlock the app on iphone or other device. It's clear, that the touch-id can only replace the common identification "kennung (in german)" if the user has enanled the touch-id on his device. If he has not, then the app must still require the identifying information in characters to unlock.

        Thank for reading.

            Please bring a feature to switch between two accounts in owa. I have two university accounts hosted in owa.

                • 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?

                          • Add multiple accounts support

                            Hello

                            We would really need multiple account support

                            On browser you can open another mailbox by adding the address you have access behind /own/emailaddress

                            For our company it would help us greatly.

                            Thanks

                                  • "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

                                    • Allow attachments to open in other apps

                                      The attachments are inevitably read only, which means one cannot use track changes to send things back and forth in the app

                                      • Quick delete in Outlook on iPhones

                                        Sometimes movement of fingers instigates deleting an email. Unfortunately this can happen again when you try to recover in the deleted files. A confirmation first would be helpful. Again this is on the iPhone app

                                        • Adding contacts from an email

                                          When I add a contact from an email, I have to close the open and reopen it because the done button doesn't close the window. The new contact does gets added.
