  1. OWA calendar

    Offer more colors to choose from in OWA to identify multiple calendars. And allow more options of view of the calendar on the iPhone screen. Finally move to the initial scheduling window the ability to pick into which calendar you are scheduling an event.

  5. set ringer to vibrate during meetings automaticly

    There needs to be a setting in calendar to set the phone to vibrate or silent during meetings.
    The best implementation would be a global setting that could be changed for each meeting or appointment as needed.

  6. Calendar reminders

    Stop them, please I don't need reminders of events in the past! I have to view or discard them one at a time. Nothing productive about that

  7. Add Boss' calender

    I need to add my boss' calendar to this app so I can manage her calendar as she expects me to. I can do this on my Android OWA app but it would be much easier to see on this larger screen. When will this become available?

  9. Calendar Options

    I am an editor for my bosses calendar and inbox...when I am in Outlook I can email and add to his calendar as him. It shows up under my calendar.. In OWA it does not show his calendar at all.

    I see the other staffer in my office and have permission to only edit their calendars so they show in people's calendar.

    Is there a way to have my boss' calendar also show in people's calendar instead of not there at all.

  11. Ability to subscribe to calendar feeds

    It would be great to be able to subscribe to calendar feeds. (Unless you can and I don't know how -- which is a UI problem.)

  15. Month view for iPhone gone? Bring it back

    Owa for iPhone was functional enough until the last update where the calendar now has no month view that shows your appointments. Unless the option is buried that is. If it's been taken out it needs to return immediately or else the app is useless. If you can't view your schedule in a monthly format you can't function.
    Anyone else see this yet?

  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.

  17. Only sync select calendars and contacts to Outlook from Gmail

    I have 4 gmail accounts that I check on a daily basis, only one of them I care about having the contacts for as well as calendar access, as I don't schedule any calendar appointments on any of my other gmail accounts.

    Can we please get select sync options like native Mail, Calendar, Contacts have for Gmail? I'd like more control over what syncs.

    Thank you.

  18. Calendar push notifications

    I rely on my calendar to not forget everything I've got going on, and I need push notifications!

    I tried to look up how to do this only, and I get all of this coding and proxy
    ing ridiculousness, and it just needs to be integrated into the app.

    Maybe it already is, but if it is, it needs to be much easier to find.
