  1. Allow attachments to open in other apps

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

  2. No logout, no good!

    I would like the email account being able to be logout after use since an iPad maybe shared to someone else to use.

  6. People Updates

    Both the IPad and iPhone do not consistently update people, even though Outlook says I have to do it through OWA. I have to do it on my laptop. Useless!

  7. 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.

    I found no option to print once I tapped the print button. No back button either.

  9. Link OWA with the mobile version of OneNote

    I love OneNote! I use it to keep my complex work responsibilities organized, and prioritize my to do list. One of the best features of the desktop version of Outlook is the ability to move an email onto a new or existing OneNote page. It would be great if OWA had this same functionality.

  10. Expanding allocated column width for inbox sub folders

    The inbox sub folders cannot be fully seen due to the lack of ability to expand the column width. This issue is non-existent on the desktop application of outlook due to the ability to freely expand the width allocated for the inbox and sub folders column.

  11. Email Issue

    When I open the app emails display properly, but as I open attachments the bar at the bottom begins to get bigger and eventually I can't even hardly see the inbox to the left or the preview pane to the right.

  15. Logout option

    Please add a logout option in a main area that's easy to find. Or at least an exit program method. Someway to close or leave.

  17. Not user friendly for mobile devices

    I continually delete emails I don't intend to delete, think I haven't read emails I have already read, and cannot conveniently edit collaborative projects within this program. I am in my 20's... this should be more user friendly.

  19. Scrolling

    I have a number of groups in my address books but I can't scroll through then on my iPad, wherever I touch to scroll up it thinks I am clicking on that name and opens up that contact. As a result I can only see the first 5 or so names in that group of 100 names.

  20. Txt files can no longer be saved to notes

    Txt files can no longer be saved to notes. A few months ago you also prevented PDF files from being saved to notes as well. Now the only thing that attachments can be saved to is one drive which nobody uses.

    What the **** is wrong with you people?
