  1. Is this app beta?

    Are you kidding me the calendar options don’t even work? I’m going off the grid... you need to get your **** in a group before you sling this trash out and call it a software release.

  2. OWA -> Outlook iOS Features

    Since this app will be retired, will Outlook iOS include some of the same features? Features like shared business calendars. Please say YES.

  3. Please don’t discontinue

    This is so much better than the outlook app. It works much better for small business scheduling between multiple calendars. Outlook doesn’t load the calendars shared with me and asking everyone at work to reshare is ridiculous.

  4. Shared Calendars

    I appreciate the heads up on sun setting the OWA app. However, to my knowledge there is no easy way to view your colleagues calendars with the outlook app. Please help or tell me what I’m missing.

  7. updating calendar appt not reflected immediately

    when i update an appt to the next day for example, it does not immediately reflect on my owa for ios app calendar. Even though I updated the appt in the app. This makes no sense and is very frustrating.

  8. Time adjustment in calendar

    Spinning the dial to set the time in the calendar is clunky and annoying. Once the dial starts spinning you have to wait for it to stop completely before you can adjust again. The result is it takes too much time to set a specific time. Not sure why this doesn’t work the same as the I Phones time adjustment. Can this be fixed?

  11. Time adjustment in calendar

    The tap-swipe selection of calendar times cannot be edited once the swipe/scroll has begun. Only once it reaches a stop can it be moved again.
    Very frustrating and slowing!

  13. Calendar synch on iPhone

    Up until about 2 weeks ago this app synched with the local calendar on my iPhone 7 plus with iOS 10.3.
    Now it doesn't.

  14. Needs MAJOR work

    I use OWA on my iPad because I work for busy executives, often remotely, and need access to their calendars. OWA is very helpful WHEN IT WORKS. Unfortunately, it's about 50/50 in reliability. Of course, today, when I need to work remotely it is not working. I will delete the app and reinstall to see if that helps. Majorly frustrated. UGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Calendar w/o 10billion notifications first

    Every time I wish to quickly check my calendar, I have to tap through dozens of notifications about past appointments first. Very frustrating! Please let me turn off these notifications on mobile! If this already an option, make it more discoverable.

  16. Calendar alerts

    I have this app on my home iPad to check in on work emails.

    If you have a busy diary and don't go into this app for a few days, you get this endless stream of past appointment notifications which take an age to ignore each one separately.

    There should be an option to dismiss all past due appointments at once.

    That would be a welcome addition.
