  1. Messages should not be marked unread after opening them

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

  3. 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).

  6. 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.

  8. Calendar alerts

    I would like to receive notifications (not push notifications; just local-on-my-phone notifications) when calendar events are set to happen.

    I see feedback from others suggesting that they do get calendar alerts - is there something I need to set up?

  9. Disable notifications

    When I open the app all my calendar reminders for the week open in succession. This is really annoying because I have to manually close each notification for meetings 3 days ago. There should be a setting to disable notifications altogether on the mobile app.

  14. Sound Alerts

    As a OWA user for iPhone. I feel that the app should have a notification sound to alert the user that he/she has a new message inside their inbox. As well as a number count for unread messages.

  16. Calendar versus email notifications

    I would like iOS to notify me of calendar events from OWA, but not emails. Currently there is no way to separate the two, and I hate having my notification screen full of unread emails. Until this is fixed I am turning off notifications completely.

  19. Option to prevent new Mail notifications, but still get Calendar ones.

    There needs to be a way in OWA IOS app to stop mail notifications, but still get calendar notifications in the notification center? With lots of emails coming in, we could just setup Inbox Rules to text message us when the important emails come in. Too many emails, means too many notifications and lots of unnecessary checking your IOS device. Any help would be appreciated.

  20. VIP notification

    I do not need notification on every email - just by those on my VIP/favorites list. Also want the option to disable sounds on notification. Lastly the badge number should match number of new emails. Thank you.
