  2. Blue screen on bottom

    When I open a pdf attachment. In one particular case always which is an automated email by our costumer handling software the screen “doubles” up on the bottom. Scrolling becomes unresponsive. I have to restart the app.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Attaching photos

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

  10. Preserve attachment name

    Opening an attachment in another app causes the file to be transferred with a temporary, random filename. This means that in the other app you have to re-enter the name. Fix by making OWA preserve the filename when sending to the selected app (all other iOS apps can do this)

  12. Allow us to download files direct to our iPads

    Seems like common sense to me. We're not online 24/7 so why would you only have an option to download to One Drive?

  13. Attachments

    It would be great if you could attach more than 1 item at a time in the OWA app.

  14. 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.

  15. Ability to attach SharePoint files

    Why can we attach files from Dropbox and not from SharePoint? Why can't we attach files from the main storage account for office365 subscribed companies? Why SharePoint isn't available as an storage account within OWA, Outlook or Mail apps? Why requests in this sense are censored or ignored? To whom should we escalate the problem? To Mr. Nadella himself? Is there a timeframe to solve this unexplainable problem?
    Thanks for concrete answers.

  16. 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.

  17. One drive

    Can only attach files that are photos to emails
    The other outlook app offered by Microsoft allows you to link one drive and attach files from there

    It should be possible to open attachment with the office docs, not only online apps.

  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.
