  2. 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.

  3. Enable Viewing of ".csv" Files

    Please give ability to view ".csv" files. Excel files look fine on this OWA iPhone app, but ".csv" files cannot.

  4. More Attachment options

    Is that possible to make more attachment options? While using OWA on iPhone, it only can attach photo, it should be also include attachments if the data is stored in Dropbox, Google drive, OneDrive, etc.

  5. Cannot open PDFs!!

    In the iPhone version, I can open attached PDFs AS PDFs. I can open them in any app that can view them and also save them to my ibooks. Why is this different on my iPad? This needs to be fixed! Opening the PDF in Word online is useless. Please correct this. I see posts about this going back 6 months and still no response from MS.

  9. 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.

  10. Attaching files

    UI is very sloppy and only allows insertion of pictures either from camera or gallery.
    Should have the ability to attach file from one drive and others.

    Layout is not well formatted and drop downs are not well defined, very sloppy.

  12. Cannot Print from OWA

    I am trying to print a PDF attachment from OWA. When I open it, it uses from word online to a view the document. When I hit print, a dialog box does not come up to allow me to select a printer. You get stuck and cannot navigate back to the message.

  14. Cannot open workbook with password protected

    Why does it not allow the opening of excel workbook with password protected? I must say Outlook app is so much friendly to use.

  16. Cannot open attachments

    I cannot open attachments using OWA for iOS. Nor does it work on google chrome. Whenever I have an attachment I have to wait and use Safari to open it. Rubbish. This app is a waste of time. I'm forced to use it for university, but it sucks.

  18. Can no longer save Word Docs or PDFs to Notes or iBooks.

    When opening a document with a PDF or Word doc I can no longer save them to Notes or iBooks.

    I was able to do this only a week ago but can no longer do so. There is no option available like here was before.

  20. Cache Message Attachments with offline reader

    IOS mail will download and cache smaller message attachments so you can look at them when offline. It does not look like OWA does this. This would be nice to have.
