        • Allow Font Size option

          This would make it easier for people with eyesight problems.

          • Bugs with bottom menu

            Menu at bottom of screen often becomes too high on iPad Pro meaning it cuts off the top of the screen making the app at that point unusable. Have to force exit several times a day to sort

            • Simplicity

              This is truly annoying. All I want to do is get to my email and I see everything BUT my email. When I did find it (before I lost it again), I could not get to the top email, the verification email I needed to open. Simple MS, just keep it simple and highly intuitive, at least when it comes to something as easy as access. When I log into a good app that is highly intuitive, if I think something can be or should be done or accessed a certain way and try it, low and behold, it works.…

                • Can't save draft of an email? WTF

                  I can't believe there is no way to save an email that you've been working on for 1/2 hour ... can't even cut the text and paste it into a new email. WTF.

                  How hard can this be? This isn't a knock-off app - it's OWA for iPad. Seriously! It's 2017, folks.

                        • Request new meeting time

                          When declining and requesting a new meeting time or when tentative and requesting a new meeting time, the text when typing a message does not show up. Am running an iPad Pro on iOS 10.3.2.

                            The attachments are inevitably read only, which means one cannot use track changes to send things back and forth in the app

                            • Open attached WORD docs in WORD on iPad

                              As the functionality stands, I can use OWA on my iPad to open my emails. Then I can tap on an attached WORD document to open in WORD online. But from there I'm pretty much stuck.

                              I have the Microsoft office suite of applications to use on my iPad, I should be able to open the documents attached to an email (sent from Outlook to OWA and in WORD format... all Microsoft applications) and open it, save it, use it off line on my iPad.

                              Please at least add the, "Open in another app" function available when working with files…

                                    • Obscured stuff due to bottom banner

                                      Not sure exactly what happened but now the upper lines are obscured because the bottom banner is a huge amount of the screen. It just started a couple of days ago. It is. Dry very annoying.

                                        • Handling of attachments on OWA

                                          OWA only allows for attachments to be saved to Onedrive, which is restrictive. Can Microsoft please change this so that users can choose to save to other destinations like iCloud, Dropbox, etc.?

                                          Further, after one has closed an attachment, OWA does not return to the email that was opened before, which is the source of the attachment, but instead goes back to the general email account. Can this be corrected please?

                                          It would be a please to have an option to print an attachment as well, this is not provided for.
