  2. Tasks

    I am heavily reliant on Tasks in outlook as I imagine many other users are. Why are tasks not available in this app? If Apple can get outlook tasks to sync with their Reminders app, Microsoft should be able to include Tasks within its own Outlook app.

  8. Email signature

    Even though I've created my email signature multiple times, OWA continually Defaults to "sent from OWA app" signature. I love the app but will discontinue using it if it doesn't retain my signature. How can I make my signature permanent?

    Notifications for new email and a sound to go along with it would be great! As only currently receive calendar notifications

  11. Create email folders

    I've been all through this app and the online help - no reference to how to create new folders! I'm beginning to think it doesn't exist on this app. Please give us this vital organization option.

  13. Sync with iPhone default calendar

    It would be of great help and convenience to be able to sync calendars from shared through outlook onto the default calendar app on smartphones such as the iPhone. By having that information available in one place users with outlook on their phone would not have to look in multiple places for events shared through outlook and personal events saved on their existing default smartphone calendars.

  18. Being able to edit Forwarded/Reply email threads

    You can't seem to edit a previously emailed thread when forwarding or replying to that thread, in the OWA iphone or ipad app - other than being able to select and copy text.

  19. App update

    It keeps saying it will take a few minutes to do an app update then never updates. I can't read my emails. Thankfully I'm still receiving it but I can't see them because it shows an error message every time.
