  2. Cannot logout

    There is no way to logout the app. It would be better to have the logout function and ability to add more than one account.

  3. Frustrating

    My work makes us change our password every 60 days. There's no option to update password in the options/setting on the app. So once I've changed password from laptop/office PC it means my owa app is not using correct password any more so now I can't send emails from the account.

  4. OWA app on iOS allows access to email with Conditional Access enabled in Intune

    I ran into this problem testing access to O365 company email for a client. We set up Conditional Access in Intune so that anyone with iOS or Android would need to have a compliant device (Have the Intune Company Portal App installed, etc.) in order to sync email down. Turns out that the OWA app on iOS gets around this setting. When setting up access to Exchange online email, we get the screen saying the device needs to be enrolled via Intune to get email. Two buttons are presented at that point, Enroll (Sends you to App store to install…

  5. Notes

    When you type a note on a appointment the note only shows the first letter then the rest of what you are typing is white out. It will not show the rest of what you typed until you hit the done button.

  6. Save message as draft?

    In the OWA app, I can't find a way to save a message as a draft. Maybe I am missing something, but when I start an email, then click away from it, it appears to be discarded.

  9. Redundant app - get rid if it

    You have an OWA AND an Outlook app for the iPad, what's the point? There's so much redundancy, confusion & convolution in your product line, it's very annoying

  12. iOS 9.02 owa app notifications no longer working

    Recently my iPhone 6s stop displaying any notifications from the OWA app. I know longer receive the red bubble notifications, or any preview notifications. This is becoming very problematic and negatively impacting my work. Can this functionality be restored ASAP? why was this functionality removed? I have attempted to disable and reenable notifications from within the app and within iOS. And I have also deleted and reinstalled the application all without success. It would be wonderful if there could be a fast resolution to this

  15. Reset crash

    The app was working fine until recently, then a dialogue box appeared while trying to opne the mailbox: "Reset OWA. You need to reset OWA. Resetting will delete any information that hasn't been sent to the server." Clicking on RESET causes the app to crash, clicking on CANCEL simply delays the process and the error dialogue returns. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but to no avail, it still constantly crashes. Any thoughts on how to resolve the issue?

  16. OWA for iPhone ReminderDialog_MessageBody and more

    The OWA for iPhone app shows variable names instead of content. For instance ReminderDialogMessageBody in a calendar reminder message and SplashScreenMessagesStartingAppName when the app starts. Please fix asap. I run ios 8 on iPhone 5 with the latest app version.

  17. Provide feature to change email password. Currently, if I change my exchange password, I don't have a way to change it on my OWA app.

    I'm not able to change my password within the app.
    If I change my password on the exchange, I don't have a way to change it on the app unless the password is automatically synced.

  20. Notifications broken

    I'm not sure why, but notifications are broken again. I will have to stop using the app all together because I am missing time-sensitive messages. This is the newest version, running on iPhone 5s.
