    • Need to view attachments in app

      This app needs to have the ability to view attachments especially Microsoft files. Also would be nice to launch view in native app (Word, Excel, PPT). Currently one must save to OneDrive to view. I can already view files via iPhone mail app so I know you can do it Microsoft.

      • Add files other than pictures

        I recently had to download the outlook app because my Apple mail app was having short term issues.

        Anyway I went to attach a file to an email and the only options were ‘take a picture’, ‘choose a picture’ or ‘add a signature’ . Where the heck is ‘ATTACH A FILE??? Is it even possible?

        • Blue screen on bottom

          When I open a pdf attachment. In one particular case always which is an automated email by our costumer handling software the screen “doubles” up on the bottom. Scrolling becomes unresponsive. I have to restart the app.

          • Allow us to download files direct to our iPads

            Seems like common sense to me. We're not online 24/7 so why would you only have an option to download to One Drive?

                • Open Attachment in another App.

                  My employer always wants me to sign forms while I'm on the road. It would be great if I could open those in an app that allows me to write on the screen and just send them back via email without finding a printer.

                    It should be possible to open attachment with the office docs, not only online apps.

                    • Ability to attach SharePoint files

                      Why can we attach files from Dropbox and not from SharePoint? Why can't we attach files from the main storage account for office365 subscribed companies? Why SharePoint isn't available as an storage account within OWA, Outlook or Mail apps? Why requests in this sense are censored or ignored? To whom should we escalate the problem? To Mr. Nadella himself? Is there a timeframe to solve this unexplainable problem?
                      Thanks for concrete answers.

                            Anytime I try to open a word document attached to an email it no longer loads the attachment. This needs to get fixed now

                                • More attachment options on mobile app?!?

                                  On the mobile app it seems as if there are only 2 options for attachments, photos and adding a signature. This can't be right? What am I missing? I should be able to add an attachment from anywhere, from my phone or from the cloud. Not having this ability would make me drop this service immediately if it wasn't for work.

                                    Please give ability to view ".csv" files. Excel files look fine on this OWA iPhone app, but ".csv" files cannot.

                                    • More Attachment options

                                      Is that possible to make more attachment options? While using OWA on iPhone, it only can attach photo, it should be also include attachments if the data is stored in Dropbox, Google drive, OneDrive, etc.

                                      • Cannot open PDFs!!

                                        In the iPhone version, I can open attached PDFs AS PDFs. I can open them in any app that can view them and also save them to my ibooks. Why is this different on my iPad? This needs to be fixed! Opening the PDF in Word online is useless. Please correct this. I see posts about this going back 6 months and still no response from MS.
