  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

    Is there anything available to check that right now?

    Thanks in Advance.

  10. 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.

  15. Where are the new email notifications?

    The app used to show a number when I got a new unchecked email, making it easier to stay on top of unexpected emails. Why doesn't it do this anymore?

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  18. 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

  20. 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.
