  4. Last update only allows one message response

    Since the last update, I can only respond to one email. Clicking on reply does nothing for the second message response. I have to kill the app and reopen it for each response. I’ve tried reinstalling it, but same issue persists.

  5. Inboxes

    Allowing all inboxes to be in one area, favs doesn't work on all devices or apps.

    When having shared inboxes you can't see if there are any new emails unless they are uncollapsed.

    They also can't be moved to favs in all apps or devices.

    New emails in the badge icons from shared accounts also don't show.

  6. Sorting Inbox

    I would like to sort my inbox or mail in other folders by date having the most recent located at the bottom. Seems like a worthwhile feature.

  7. Emails appear incorrectly under “Yesterday”

    Good day,

    Since the latest OWA update I have noticed that certain emails (not all) appear incorrectly under “Yesterday”, even though the date is today’s date.

    Please have a look and provide a fix in the next update.

    Thank you!

  8. Time zones

    Why isn’t there a setting to have OWA reflect local time zones so that it changes when I travel?

    Unlike the native phone mail app OWA is ‘frozen’ on my home time zone & does not reflect the time of the location I am in. When traveling away from my home time zone this causes confusion - if I am in a time zone two hours later it makes it look as if I have not received any email in 2+ hours.

  10. Search Function

    Most frustrating that search function can’t be sorted out in one of the many updates, I end up using another app to do searches 😡

  12. Outlook app on iphone gets stuck - fix it

    On all my iphones (5s, 5se) when i respond to emails, the app gets stuck. The email gets sent, but the app jams. The only way to solve it, is to restart phone. Annoying. Pls fix it if you can. It has lasted for weeks and i do all updates.

  13. Focused Mailbox

    Hello, I know the option to have a “Focused” versus the “Other” mailbox is still available on Android because my husband still has access to it on his Galaxy; however, my app is not showing it as an option on my iPhone.

    I recently ran into some issues with my OWA for iPhone app and had to delete it a couple of times before regaining access. It’s finally worked so I’m good to go, but the app looks different - actually, looks how it used to look BEFORE the focused mailbox was an option. Please help me find the option…

  14. Bottom blue bar won't collapse

    I would like to send a picture but that is another idea for this forum. When I expand the blue menu bar on the bottom- it won't collapse until I completely close the app. Any suggestions or is it a glitch?

  16. Categories and Smartsheet


    1. There is no point in being able just to view categories. Why can neither OWA or Outlook Mobile provide a user with the ability to categorize/tag/label an email? Or allow us to comment or add a note at least so that we can quickly search emails. Putting things in folders is antiquated.


    2. Why is there no smartsheet add-in like there is on outlook Mobile?

  17. Email Backgrounds

    I notice in the windows version, there is an option for email backgrounds. This is a nice option along with the signature. Please include the existing email backgrounds and more. My recipients often comment on the elegant email backgrounds offered in the windows version. Please add this option to all outlook platforms (iOS, Mac iOS, etc).
    Thanks

  18. Please add an option to STOP the automatic calendar event detection while reading email

    While reading emails, if there’s any sort of date or time in the email, the OWA app will detect an event and intrusively pop-up a message asking if I’d like to add an event to my calendar. This feature is probably useful for some users, but for me, it’s rarely accurate, and worse, it interrupts the reading of my messages. For the love of all that’s holy- please, please add an option to toggle this feature off. Thank you!

  19. Please add support for categorizing emails!

    The app already supports displaying color-coded categories from emails categorized from the Outlook desktop app, so why can’t we categorize emails within the iOS OWA app??? It drives me nuts. We can flag, but not categorize?!? It seems like the mechanism is already there, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see previously categorized emails. Please add this feature as it’s crucial to my workflow. Thank you.

  20. Add “shared folders” view to the sidebar

    Online I have a shared folder that is the mailbox for another account. It shows up on the online browser version of OWA and the iPhone version of OWA, but not on the iPad app. I would like if I could also access the shared folder on the OWA for iPad app as well.
