  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  18. Unable to open any PDFs

    All PDFs are being opened in Word Online. This is awful as they cannot be saved or stored nor resent by email. This has happened in the past ten days.

  19. Attachment will not download

    Sometimes an attached file will not download when requested. Appears to try for a while then gives up. Wireless is fine. iPad native mail app can get the file. Usually works a few hours later.

  20. Separate button that isolates attachments into its own lost

    I would like to be able to press a button that would show all attachments from all emails in a single list and then be able to file, save,print ,or share them.
