  1. Notifications

    It would be nice to have a sound or number notification when a new email arrives:)

  3. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. Dashboard Visibility and Better Sharing

    The favorites should be synced as the same as on the desktop Outlook. I monitor several Inboxes and its a pain drilling down just to see if there are new emails. The trees collapse and I must drill down each time. Also, why can't I sync shared contacts and calendars?

  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. 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. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Notifications

    This app would be great if the unread/new message count would be displayed on the app badge. The layout is great, I personally love it compared to how apples native mail app handles multi thread emails. I would definitely start using this app all of the time for email but will have to stick with apples mail app because of the unread message count not being displayed. Even though it looks great I don't want to have to open the app every 5 minutes to check for new email.

  19. Notifications

    When I originally set up this email I agreed to have notification sent to me daily by text message. I thought this would be a good reminder but now I get a text message at 8:00 am every day including the weekend and I can't find a place in the options to go and change it. Help please?

  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...
