  2. Add a "Send" button to iPad Pro app

    Sure would be handy if I could send the e-mail that I typed to my potential subcontractor. I can click the Reply All button, and it brings up an e-mail draft, but there is not an option to send the e-mail. Guess I will save it as a draft and then go to another device so I can send it.

  3. Goes from slow to unresponsive!

    I'm on a good network, yet the app is most times slow to sync, then gets even slower and won't update actions, i.e. Slow to change from un-read to read or move mail between folders. It gets to where I have to restart the app multiple times over the course of the day to get it to act properly for a short time! It has only worsened after the last update.

  4. Setting up this app message

    After I open OWA I now get a message saying "setting up this app to work offline. This may take a few minutes". This happens when I'm connected to the internet. I am using iPad 2 on io7

    This OWA version seems to develop new bugs all the time and it's a real pain not being able to delete original content when forwarding messages.

  6. OWA Keeps Restarting

    OWA keeps restarting even after resets. I found forums suggesting to change the iPad date format to 24hr under General, which fixes it sometimes but it seems as though just switching from 24hr to 12hr or 12hr to 24hr and going back into OWA mostly fixes the problem. A chat session with Microsoft confirmed there had been postings about this issue. There hasn't been an update to OWA for a while and I'm surprised this issue has not been fixed yet. Other than that, when it works it's a good interface.

  7. Font Sizes

    Would like to be able to use smaller fonts on my iPad Pro. The large screen size could be better utilized with a smaller font option.

  11. Mail integration with other programs

    I just loaded and started using OWA for MS 365. The mail program works well. The problem is when we use OWA instead of the native IOS mail program, there is no way to send email from other applications such as safari.

    Is there a way to set up IOS so other applications use OWA to email from instead of mail? FOr example, in Safari, if you want to email a link how do you email it from OWA. Or how do you email a photo from photos from OWA instead of the native mail client which no longer has…

  12. Text resizing

    Would like to have option to resize UI or mail text for iPad retina. This would allow for a bit more privacy and more text to fit on the screen in portrait or landscape views.

  13. Save draft messages?

    Idea: auto-save messages from time to time, as is possible with OWA on laptops, desktops, etc. I sit by my husband in hospital daily and try to keep up with e-mail. I compose a long message, not quite finished, which would save on my MBP, but disappears (except for the fact I started a message, that DOES show up in the "Drafts" folder...) if I step away for a minute or close the iPad. Frustrating is the polite term. What on earth is up with this?!

  14. Add print function to OWA

    I like OWA a lot, but am frustrated that I can't print emails from it. Could this functionality please be added?

    Also, I like Outlook, but it doesn't have access to Shared Folders (OWA does). Could Shared Folders be added to Outlook?

    Have a great week

  16. MailBox Sync

    For some I apparent reason my old mailbox that used to be attached to this account doesn't disappear, nor does the one that I replaced it with appear. Also I can't access my settings at all.

  17. Fix invisible text please

    Text is invisible when typing and only becomes visible when you hit return. As well I am unable to delete and correct text! Extremely annoying

  19. By not suddenly closing access to the app to any but users of Office 365 for Business, with no warning.

    I've used OWA on my iPad for a couple of years, with great success and satisfaction. Suddenly, 48 hours ago, I can no longer access it... Probably because I don't have "the latest version of Office 365 for Business". Explanation/Solution, please? I have no intention of getting ANY version of Office 365.
