  1. Attachments / "Open in..." OWA for Devices

    ... is to be a target for an "Open in..." from other apps. Otherwise there is no way to add attachments.

    And while you're at it, it might be helpful if the app was willing to "Open in..." attachments that it doesn't necessarily need to know how to open itself. Mindmaps, for example. I'd love to "Open in..." them in iThoughts.

            • Can't insert attachment

              I am frustrated because I have a large email list to whom I have to send an attachment. I restarted the iPad, I reset the OWA account with no avail. I am not sure why I can't insert attachment.

                      Would be good if the attachments could still open even if there is no internet connection

                              OWA on iPhone should allow for attachments to be inserted from the phone memory or Dropbox or other storage. Currently limited to photos on iPhone and one drive only. Not friendly

                              • More attachment options on mobile app?!?

                                On the mobile app it seems as if there are only 2 options for attachments, photos and adding a signature. This can't be right? What am I missing? I should be able to add an attachment from anywhere, from my phone or from the cloud. Not having this ability would make me drop this service immediately if it wasn't for work.

                                  I'm trying to send attachments from internal only emails to external people. I cannot do so in this app. I can only do via computer or laptop.

                                  Maybe have the capability to detach and attach attachments from a document folder in the iPhone to send as needed.

                                  • Stop renaming attachments when opening in one drive/ office

                                    Whenever I try to open, save or upload to one drive or word/excel the document gets a new random name that makes it difficult to know what I am working on exactly.

                                    • Open PDF in another attachment

                                      It would be nice to be able to select the program used to view a PDF versus having it only be Word Online. As an example, it would be great to open in One Note.

                                      • Not being able to open PDF documents

                                        All PDFs are being opened in Word Online which cannot be saved or resent. Please have this bug rectified.

                                          Would be perfect if you can allow documents and photos to be attached to emails from Dropbox using your phone and other similar devices
