How can we improve OWA for iPhone/iPad?

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.

  1. URGENT: APP Not working

    ‘Downloading APP may take a few minutes’. It does not. This issue needs resolving urgently. This service is unacceptable.

  6. Add Global Address List browsing

    While I seem to be able to search for contacts in the GAL, I can only do that if I know the person's name. I need to be able to either browse the list or search by other data points, such as company name.

  8. Demand for Office365 subscription refund due to OWA update issue

    I paid a monthly fee to use office365 but there is no proper mobile platform for it. Suck!!! OWA is a joke. Kept saying "update" that never finishes. I should get at least 1 year subscription refund unless it is fixed within 2017.

  9. Week view

    I like the usage on my calendar but my app on my phone doesn't seem to have a view week format which I find hard to use when I can only view my calendar day to day on my phone

  12. Work around

    Considering this app doesn't seem like it's getting fixed any time soon

    I opened up safari, created a shortcut to my home screen. Browsed to O365 and saved my password

    I don't get notification but at least I can get to my emails.

  16. Improve the notifications

    I never receive notifications when i have a new email even though my notifications are always on!! I can see that there is actually something new in the box only when i open the app.. really this is disappointing because the app the doesn't provide me the needed information.

  18. Please tidy up messages list

    The way messages are presented in the list is a real mess. You can never be sure to see the latest message on top of the list. When you go in to see the content of an email where you expect a new message (as suggested by the preview line in message list) you get surprised that you are presented with an old t XX right on top of the message body. Very confusing. Where are the good old times where you could rely on the chronological order of your messages?
    If you perceive this a “modern”, so be it.…

  20. Inactivity timeout

    Please create an option to select 'no timeout'. I would like the ability to stay logged in. Versus entering my password every time, or after every 1 hour
