  2. Permission

    I am not able to open any attachments people send with the email. It states you do not have permission to download files. How do I fix this?

  3. Multiple accounts

    Why can't you support multiple outlook accounts? I'm forced to have a cutdown Microsoft email account for uni but if I want to use a normal Microsoft account and link it to all the Microsoft services I need another account. The problem is I can't maintain two and use outlook. I am forced into two accounts but two accounts are not supported. What a joke!

  4. Tasks

    This app has a mail tab, a calendar tab, a people tab, but no tasks tab. I use Outlook on my laptop but would like to view my tasks on the go. Can this be incorporated into the app?

  7. “Where field” in calendar should link to map software

    Pretty self-explanatory. Whenever there is an address entered into a calendar event, the user should be able to tap the address and have it open up in their map software for easy directions.

  9. Fix the search bar

    Hello, the search bar is funny; you either have to click on it many times so you can type something in or it disappears and the “select emails” boxes appear and then you have to restart the app. Very annoying!

  17. Fix the Stupid OWA App

    The new update is worthless. Cannot access any emails. I don’t understand why they just don’t withdraw and put back last version until you fix the issue. The person running division of O365 should be fired!
