  2. Outlook app on iphone gets stuck - fix it

    On all my iphones (5s, 5se) when i respond to emails, the app gets stuck. The email gets sent, but the app jams. The only way to solve it, is to restart phone. Annoying. Pls fix it if you can. It has lasted for weeks and i do all updates.

  3. Focused Mailbox

    Hello, I know the option to have a “Focused” versus the “Other” mailbox is still available on Android because my husband still has access to it on his Galaxy; however, my app is not showing it as an option on my iPhone.

    I recently ran into some issues with my OWA for iPhone app and had to delete it a couple of times before regaining access. It’s finally worked so I’m good to go, but the app looks different - actually, looks how it used to look BEFORE the focused mailbox was an option. Please help me find the option…

  4. Bottom blue bar won't collapse

    I would like to send a picture but that is another idea for this forum. When I expand the blue menu bar on the bottom- it won't collapse until I completely close the app. Any suggestions or is it a glitch?

  6. Categories and Smartsheet

    1. There is no point in being able just to view categories. Why can neither OWA or Outlook Mobile provide a user with the ability to categorize/tag/label an email? Or allow us to comment or add a note at least so that we can quickly search emails. Putting things in folders is antiquated.

    2. Why is there no smartsheet add-in like there is on outlook Mobile?

  7. Email Backgrounds

    I notice in the windows version, there is an option for email backgrounds. This is a nice option along with the signature. Please include the existing email backgrounds and more. My recipients often comment on the elegant email backgrounds offered in the windows version. Please add this option to all outlook platforms (iOS, Mac iOS, etc).
    Thanks

  8. Please add an option to STOP the automatic calendar event detection while reading email

    While reading emails, if there’s any sort of date or time in the email, the OWA app will detect an event and intrusively pop-up a message asking if I’d like to add an event to my calendar. This feature is probably useful for some users, but for me, it’s rarely accurate, and worse, it interrupts the reading of my messages. For the love of all that’s holy- please, please add an option to toggle this feature off. Thank you!

  9. Please add support for categorizing emails!

    The app already supports displaying color-coded categories from emails categorized from the Outlook desktop app, so why can’t we categorize emails within the iOS OWA app??? It drives me nuts. We can flag, but not categorize?!? It seems like the mechanism is already there, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see previously categorized emails. Please add this feature as it’s crucial to my workflow. Thank you.

  10. Add “shared folders” view to the sidebar

    Online I have a shared folder that is the mailbox for another account. It shows up on the online browser version of OWA and the iPhone version of OWA, but not on the iPad app. I would like if I could also access the shared folder on the OWA for iPad app as well.

  11. Images

    You always block images. When I click always show images, it opens safari. However it never remembers, so I end up using Apple's mail app, which never blocks images.

    FIX THIS.

    Create a setting asking If I want to block images embedded in eMail messages.

    I want to see messages formatted correctly, not be annoyed by a clunky application.

  14. No "deleted" folder??

    If I accidentally delete something there is no way of getting it back. Please add a "trash" folder to enable a retrieval of unintentional deletions

  16. Updates OWA - Takes more that a few minutes.

    I am always screwed from using my OWA App when it is updating.

    It has take hours each time. All other updates far outpace the OWA update speed.

    So annoying.

  18. Why can't I log out?!!!

    I have three work accounts that I oversee, but can only have 1 app and am unable to logout and login back into a second account. Really frustrating!

  20. Add more than one email account

    All other email apps have the ability to add more than one account. I am forced to use this app as it is the only one that supports shared calendars but as a business we have multiple 365 email accounts and domains. I am able to add them in the original outlook app but that doesn't support shared calendars. How about making one app that does everything instead of using 2 apps that only half work.
