  3. Add Global Address List browsing

    While I seem to be able to search for contacts in the GAL, I can only do that if I know the person's name. I need to be able to either browse the list or search by other data points, such as company name.

  4. Signature

    We need to have certain words in bold for our signature in our company. For some reason the app won’t allow bold lettering in my signature. Please fix

  5. Demand for Office365 subscription refund due to OWA update issue

    I paid a monthly fee to use office365 but there is no proper mobile platform for it. Suck!!! OWA is a joke. Kept saying "update" that never finishes. I should get at least 1 year subscription refund unless it is fixed within 2017.

  7. Fix the Stupid OWA App

    The new update is worthless. Cannot access any emails. I don’t understand why they just don’t withdraw and put back last version until you fix the issue. The person running division of O365 should be fired!

  8. OWA for iPhone is NOT operational

    On start up, a banner is displayed at the top of the screen with this message:

    The app needs to be updated. To update, select the Refresh button.

    The App the loads to the inbox and the status bar at the bottom of the screen displays this message:

    Downloading an app update. This make take a few minutes.

    Note, I then clicked “x” to close message.

    Emails appears to load.

    Clicking on an email yields the following message:

    ERROR. Your request can’t be…

  10. Work around

    Considering this app doesn't seem like it's getting fixed any time soon

    I opened up safari, created a shortcut to my home screen. Browsed to O365 and saved my password

    I don't get notification but at least I can get to my emails.

  13. URGENT: APP Not working

    ‘Downloading APP may take a few minutes’. It does not. This issue needs resolving urgently. This service is unacceptable.

  17. Improve the notifications

    I never receive notifications when i have a new email even though my notifications are always on!! I can see that there is actually something new in the box only when i open the app.. really this is disappointing because the app the doesn't provide me the needed information.

  20. Please tidy up messages list

    The way messages are presented in the list is a real mess. You can never be sure to see the latest message on top of the list. When you go in to see the content of an email where you expect a new message (as suggested by the preview line in message list) you get surprised that you are presented with an old t XX right on top of the message body. Very confusing. Where are the good old times where you could rely on the chronological order of your messages?
    If you perceive this a “modern”, so be it.…
