  1. Support for Exchage 2010

    Need support for older versions of Exchange, at least 2010. Not every company is on the latest release and this seems to be the best impementation of OWA on iPad/iPhone.

  2. Calendar is blank!!!

    Highly irritating. I choose calendar from the OWA app and it shows the template but only some of my events. It seems to have my all day events, but everything else is MIA. I can toggle back and forth and finally get them to appear, but I can't relay on the validity of the entries ....

  4. Access to Shared Mailboxes

    We've got around 350 users that use OWA constantly. Main gripe from them is that they can't access shared mailboxes from within the app on either iPhone or iPad They have to use a PC or Mac to access these mailboxes. Any improvement would be gratefully received

  7. Enable Quick-Step functionality for moving items to folders

    Outlook client has quick step functionality which is useful for simple "move read item to Folder" type of actions to help keep inbox clean.

    Gmail mobile app has similar functionality with the "Archive" button.

    A similar quick step for OWA app would be very useful.

  9. Take the best parts of OWA and Outlook and combine their tech

    I have been trying to get a customer's calendar integration set correctly for several days now. I find that the outlook app for iOS and Droid is able to sync calendars as long as they are tied to a licensed account(not a resource) and are able to allow my users to tap an address and load it directly into their map software, but they cannot add a non-licensed resource, and none of the color-coding they apply to their calendars carry over. By contrast, OWA allows users to add non-licensed calendars over as shared resources, and all of the color coding…

  12. Selection of more than one email to delete, move to another folder

    We were be able to do this before, select more than one file, now you have to do it individually which is quite annoying. Will be nice and faster to have this option.

    Please DO NOT retire this app. The Outlook app doesn’t even come close to being a replacement.

  17. I can't disable the calendar alerts when opening the app

    Every time I open the app it fires all my calendar reminders since the last time I used it. It's very annoying to cancel through all of these before being able to proceed. I have all notifications turned off in iOS settings, but evidently this doesn't control in-app alerts.

  18. 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

  19. 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).

  20. Multiple Accounts

    Perhaps I'm not used to the format of the app and don't know how to use this feature, but I have 2 accounts with OWA and would like to access them both using the app.
