  1. Fix calendar reminders

    Here's an idea how about you fix calendar reminders?! I get a reminder that says the event is happening NOW when really the event is happening in however many minutes away the reminder was set for and the reminder is happening NOW.

  2. Notifications Control

    I need the ability to turn notifications OFF within OWA itself. I have them blocked at the iOS level, but every time I start the app, I get all kinds of notifications of meetings that are in the past (since the last time I launched the app).

  3. Hi OWA,

    Hi Owa,

    I have been using this application for two weeks.

    I like this application to have three missing features which we see in most of Email apps nowadays.

    1. Notifications for new email, I am using this app in ios 9. There is no option for enabling the notification.

    2. Adding new folders in order to separate different emails in different categories for easier tracking purposes.

    3. Editing forwarded messages and to be able to delete forwarded message content for security purposes.

    I hope to see these improvements as soon as possible.

    Regards,

    Abdollah Askari

  5. App notification

    The app needs to show a number to represent how many new emails are in the inbox. The has a huge visual impact. I am unable to see if new emails from work are in my inbox because the app does not show the number.

  7. I can't disable the calendar alerts when opening the app

    Every time I open the app it fires all my calendar reminders since the last time I used it. It's very annoying to cancel through all of these before being able to proceed. I have all notifications turned off in iOS settings, but evidently this doesn't control in-app alerts.

  8. no notifications

    Just within the last day or so, I have stopped receiving notifications when new mail or calendar events occur. I depend on these push notifications, so I thought I may need to update my app. When I did, I still was not receiving notifications for new messages or calendar events (I tested both out).
    PLEASE HELP!!!

  9. Lost notifications

    Doesn't let me know when I've received emails. Used to light up out to the side and now it doesn't. Has just happened since new update to IPhone 5S.
    Still would be nice to be able to get notified with some type of sound!

  14. Messages should not be marked unread after opening them

    When simply going "back" messages are still marked unread on the mobile app

  16. Notifications/Sound Alerts

    It would be more convenient if the app notified the user with a sound when he/she receives a message. Also, the app could display the number of unread messages the user has (when the app isn't open).

  19. Notifications

    Just wondering if anyone has looked into notifications for OWA App? I get notifications on my android tablet but can't do it with my iPhone.
    Sure hope someday someone can find a way to set this up where it works all the time.
