  2. Calendar time picker

    Please change the calendar time selector UI. There's got to be a more efficient way to enter a time than the scrolling numbers and am/pm options. Maybe a slider in 15 minute increments or direct typed entries. The current UI is inefficient, at best.

  3. Calendar Options

    I am an editor for my bosses calendar and inbox...when I am in Outlook I can email and add to his calendar as him. It shows up under my calendar.. In OWA it does not show his calendar at all.

    I see the other staffer in my office and have permission to only edit their calendars so they show in people's calendar.

    Is there a way to have my boss' calendar also show in people's calendar instead of not there at all.

  4. Multiple calendars

    I have my own work calendar and several other calendars that have been added as favorites. Only one of those calendars appears. Is there a way to have them all appear?

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  10. Is this app beta?

    Are you kidding me the calendar options don’t even work? I’m going off the grid... you need to get your **** in a group before you sling this trash out and call it a software release.

  11. OWA -> Outlook iOS Features

    Since this app will be retired, will Outlook iOS include some of the same features? Features like shared business calendars. Please say YES.

  12. Please don’t discontinue

    This is so much better than the outlook app. It works much better for small business scheduling between multiple calendars. Outlook doesn’t load the calendars shared with me and asking everyone at work to reshare is ridiculous.

  13. Shared Calendars

    I appreciate the heads up on sun setting the OWA app. However, to my knowledge there is no easy way to view your colleagues calendars with the outlook app. Please help or tell me what I’m missing.

  17. Improve the Date time selection function

    The date time scrolling to select is ****! It’s slow and then it gets stuck. Not the sort of thing you want when setting an appointment! I’m looking to change my email/calendar app to the iPhone app if doesn’t improve.

  18. updating calendar appt not reflected immediately

    when i update an appt to the next day for example, it does not immediately reflect on my owa for ios app calendar. Even though I updated the appt in the app. This makes no sense and is very frustrating.

  19. Time adjustment in calendar

    Spinning the dial to set the time in the calendar is clunky and annoying. Once the dial starts spinning you have to wait for it to stop completely before you can adjust again. The result is it takes too much time to set a specific time. Not sure why this doesn’t work the same as the I Phones time adjustment. Can this be fixed?
