    • 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.

      • 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

          • 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.

            • Cannot localize to english my owa program on my IPad.

              Dear support,

              Please help to me, I cannot set the app language to English (uk) on my ipad. It shows an error that it cannot be localized. My e-mail is kiss.istvan@europaalap.hu. It is an office 365 service.
              Thank you!

              Best regards,
              István

                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.

                • Cannot save mail to send later

                  When replying to or sending a new mail, it is not possible to save the mail and send later. You'd always have to start all over again when you leave the page.

                  • Fix the app

                    I have had this app for a couple of years on my ipad and updated and recently reinstalled it. It still doesn't work right. It never gives me notifications of new messages and often (almost always lately) doesn't show my new messages at all. It also gives me no option for re entering my password to correct this and let me enter the acct. I have to use it for my work, but at this point, I'm not sure what to do. Its pretty useless.

                    • 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?!

                      • Calendar

                        Hi
                        On my iPad :
                        Often I get a blank calendar and gave to move back and forward from views to get the calendar items to show up.

                        Also, I can't edit calendar items which I used to be able to
                        Best

                            • View co-workers calendars

                              I would like to be able to look up my co-workers calendars that I have saved in Outlook. I'm able to do this in the iPhone app, but not the iPad app.

                              This is really important to me for scheduling meetings or seeing if a colleague is available for a call.

                              • Keyboard shortcuts

                                There don't appear to be any functional keyboard shortcuts in this app (reply, reply all, etc). This makes it much less efficient to use with an iPad and keyboard.

                                      My email will not connect to the server. It is currently useless. It worked so well for a long time. Please fix it.

                                      • OWA not updating emails - disconnected

                                        Ever since the last update was applied on Nov 24 to my iPad my email has not updated with the Owa app. I can not go into options when I do it says there is an error. I have restarted the app... Rebooted my iPad and I can not get the app to work so I can see my email.

                                        Please fix. Ridiculous that we all pay for such a poor service which is only getting worse it seems.
