  1. 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?

  2. 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.

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

  6. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Notifications for iOS or Android where the on premise Exchange server does not support it.

    I currently use OWA desktop web app and the iOS/Android mobile web app as well. My company uses on premise Exchange server 2013 but do not support push notifications for the web or mobile app. It would be nice if the mobile app would use some type of polling on the OWA web site to alert users to new notifications for incoming mail.

  13. Better Badge Notifications

    It would be nice if the badge showing the number of emails unread/received would disappear when they are read on the computer or another device. I hate having to open the app just to find out that I hate having to open the app to make the badge notification disappear.

  14. Just the number of new emails in notification / locked screen

    Suggestion to improve on iPhone/iPad:
    I like how windows phone shows the number of newly arrived emails in lock screen without showing the actual message (helps to keep it secured). I would like the same in iPhone like "10 new emails" without showing the actual message for security.
    Currently, I do see the red bubble in the icon but don't get notification in lock screen which needs me to unlock phone continuously on travel to check new emails, reducing battery charge.

  17. 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.

  20. Unread mail notification

    This app will be perfect if, the same as the desktop version, it wil be possible to add unread folder that will show emails from all folders.

    Same idea for the badge on the app icon, that will show number of all unread mail.

    At least as an option...
