  4. Not updating notification

    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.

  5. Notifications!!!

    It would be REALLY nice if this app actually did what it was supposed to, which is to NOTIFY you when you get an email! Not hours or days later either. It needs to be AS SOON AS THE EMAIL ENTERS YOUR INBOX. It's frustrating to have to constantly open the app and wait 10 minutes for it to refresh to only show me an email from yesterday that I never knew came. Get your **** together outlook! Some of us are college students RELYING on this app.

  6. Notifications

    I need to be able to turn on notifications for when I receive emails, not just for calendar events. There is nowhere to do this in the OWA settings, and I already have the notifications turned on for OWA in my iPhone settings.

  7. Email Notifications

    Email notifications should be able to turno on/off, separated from the calendar notifications. Add the option to turn email notifications off/on including sound and blinker options.

  8. Notifications

    Every time I open this app, I am bombarded with calendar reminders for every meeting since the last time that I opened the app. This could be 10 or 20 consecutive notifications that I have to dismiss before I can proceed to check my email. Very frustrating

  9. Notifications need more options.

    Notifications settings should be similar to accessing Office 365 online. The only notifications options I get within OWA is to turn ON/OFF Calendar reminders. No option to turn ON/OFF emails for instance. So when I'm at work and receiving all my emails on my desktop, I only need notifications for calendar reminders/events. I don't need to see an email come into my outlook app on my desktop and then my phone beeps 2 seconds later, for every single email that comes in. I can always turn ON email notifications on weekends or at night if I want them.

  10. Alerts

    Every time I open up the app on my iPad or iPhone, it bombards me with all the alerts since the last time I used the app, even though I received and cancelled them on Outlook on my PC in the past. This is incredibly annoying, especially since they each come up individually, so I can't cancel them all at once. Idea: allow batch dismiss of reminders, exactly as in Outlook on my PC.

  11. Email notification for expiring passwords

    How about sending an email warning users that the password is about to expire? I often find that the password has expired without any notice. It then is more of a hassle to change. Please do something to send notification.

  14. history of mail id changes

    If there is a notification or history of changes done in email id deletion, addition or rename in owa for global account, It would be helpul for us to track.

    Thanks in Advance.

  16. Duplicate notifications

    Closing a notification or reminder on my outlook on PC does not get communicated to outlook on phone, so all notifications are duplicated, very annoying. Would be nice to have this either synced or be able to be stopped on my phone.
