  1. Background App refresh

    Add a feature to keep OWA syncing with the server. This feature will enhance the 'unread ' feature which requires the app to be in the foreground.

  10. Smart links

    Please make address, phone numbers and urls as smart links across mail, calendar and contact.

    Also phone numbers are not able to be copied and pasted. The selection tool does not constraint itself to just the number but selects the whole block. Thank you.

  11. Honor conditional formatting from Outlook

    I color code my inbox using rules defined in outlook's view settings. It would be great if this owa app honored those settings and color coded messages accordingly. Thanks

  14. dial in info in calendar

    Please make the dial in info in calendar invites clickable. It should be able to identify the phone number and the passcode and send that to the phone to dial with the passcode sent with a pause. The calendar app in iOS does this functionality today. Thanks.

  16. Automatic time zone support in calendar

    Calendar is stuck in time zone chosen. For frequent travelers where business meetings happen in diff time zones, having calendar update automatically to show the meetings in the current time zone will help. E.g iOS inbuilt calendar app adjusts time zones automatically. Thank you and I love OWA app. This is my main mail app.

  17. Sorting by Date...not syncing properly

    When I sort inbox by date it does not accurately show the actual emails in my in box.

    I move or archive my emails to subfolders under my inbox. Right mown have 2 emails in my inbox. If I sort by conversation I see only the 2. If I sort by date I see emails going back to last week as being still in my inbox which they are not.

    I have my users on office 365 E3 subscription. All have that same problem.
