  2. iOS version is useless

    Every time I open the app, I get a little message at the bottom saying “Setting up app to work offline. This may take a few minutes” - if I’m lucky. If not, the app will be stuck on a loading screen for several minutes before finally prompting me to reset OWA. I have the latest updates, and my iPhone’s WiFi connection is working properly, so there is no reason I should keep having this issue. Your telephone customer service had no clue how to fix it, so I’m hoping this will work.

  10. Junk Mails drive me nuts in my inbox

    Swipe right/left to able mark a message as JUNK on Mobile Outlook OWA, mobile Outlook App, or Touch Screen Laptop.

    Not sure why one needs to login into admin on a desktop computer to mark a stupid message as junk.

    Bring back Bill Gates to make things happen... Obviously with tons engineers and money Microsoft cannot do simple and needed functions for its own **** software.

  11. Stop Reinventing <5 Min

    Seriously, you had a version that was actually useful and where the features worked (didn’t disappear or function as placebos). You should have concentrated efforts on big squashing for a month, not a complete redesign. Business users want to get work done, not fool with new interfaces on a weekly basis.

  13. Help Required

    Up until recently I could open attachments within the calendar within the OWA app on my iPhone but now I only get an option to preview or save. Preview doesn’t open it & I don’t want to save it, just look at it. I haven’t changed any settings & a colleague has the same issue. Someone please help!

  18. Unread messages

    I think it would be good to allow the unread messages to be a part of the favorites. I have favorite file saved; they appear on the top of my list. Being able to have unread like I have on my PC allows me to navigate faster between inbox and unread. I know I can tap on the right hand corner and flag unread - just thought this option will also be a good thing to have.

    Last thing, instead of having the tab on the right hand corner to toggle between unread messages etc... in the top middle shows…

  19. Signing out of App on iPhone

    Hi
    I can’t find anywhere to sign out or change to a different email account on the App.
    How do you do this? Or is this something you can add?
    Thanks
