  2. Help Required

    Up until recently I could open attachments within the calendar within the OWA app on my iPhone but now I only get an option to preview or save. Preview doesn’t open it & I don’t want to save it, just look at it. I haven’t changed any settings & a colleague has the same issue. Someone please help!

  7. Unread messages

    I think it would be good to allow the unread messages to be a part of the favorites. I have favorite file saved; they appear on the top of my list. Being able to have unread like I have on my PC allows me to navigate faster between inbox and unread. I know I can tap on the right hand corner and flag unread - just thought this option will also be a good thing to have.

    Last thing, instead of having the tab on the right hand corner to toggle between unread messages etc... in the top middle shows…

  11. Permission

    I am not able to open any attachments people send with the email. It states you do not have permission to download files. How do I fix this?

  12. Multiple accounts

    Why can't you support multiple outlook accounts? I'm forced to have a cutdown Microsoft email account for uni but if I want to use a normal Microsoft account and link it to all the Microsoft services I need another account. The problem is I can't maintain two and use outlook. I am forced into two accounts but two accounts are not supported. What a joke!

  13. Tasks

    This app has a mail tab, a calendar tab, a people tab, but no tasks tab. I use Outlook on my laptop but would like to view my tasks on the go. Can this be incorporated into the app?

  14. Your app sucks

    Cant read emails; get an error message. Won’t update, and this has been going on three weeks. No reason it hasn’t been fixed by now

  16. “Where field” in calendar should link to map software

    Pretty self-explanatory. Whenever there is an address entered into a calendar event, the user should be able to tap the address and have it open up in their map software for easy directions.

  18. Fix the search bar

    Hello, the search bar is funny; you either have to click on it many times so you can type something in or it disappears and the “select emails” boxes appear and then you have to restart the app. Very annoying!
