        • OWA App for Android is not enforcing the PIN requirement

          Hi, i have set a mobile device policy on my office365 tenant to require a pin. The idea is to compartmentalize the OWA app so a BYOD client gets challenged for a PIN every time the app is launched and also we can selectively wipe the APP and not the entire device. I got this to work perfectly on an iOS 6.1 device but i can't get it to work on an Android 6.0.1 and on iOS 9.1.
          I am able to wipe the APP on both iOS and android but the PIN challenge only works on iOS 6.1. I…

            • We need calendar and email widgets, we need email notifications, we need calendar sync.

              We need calendar and email widgets, we need email notifications, we need calendar sync, need a month view calendar. Currently it sucks to use for people on the go.

              • How about changing the app so that the feedback link gets here, rather than a 404!

                The feedback link in the app went to a 404 page, so I had to find this forum myself. Send a wee bit silly!

                  • Widget

                    It would be great to have a widget option for this app on Android for BOTH the calendar and the emails .. two separate widgets! It would make it perfect for me.

                            • Sync issues on Galaxy S5.

                              Some of my whats app and text now show up as only the number and not the name of contact, yet some still do show up like normal? I can look at the contacts in my outlook on my computer and see all the info, but seems some is not getting carried over? Any advice or known issues with sync contacts some working and some not?

                                    • Must be able to access more than one account

                                      This is an absolute must! I have more than one account. As it is now, I access one on my phone and the other on my tablet. Can I tell you just how frustrating this is? In fact, I should be able to use this like outlook, and access POP/IMAP accounts as well. For now I'll just take multiple exchange accounts. PLEASE!!!

                                      • Notifications setup

                                        It would be great to have the option to turn notifications ON/OFF.
                                        Also select a specific sound for it's notification.
                                        Better if separated between mail and calendar.
                                        Could also have a date/time modifier, i.e., notifications allowed only monday to friday between 9AM and 5PM (or a custom date/time range).

                                        • Allow more compatible android devices.

                                          It would be better if you allowed more devices to install the app. As it would be highly appreciated by many
