  1. OWA for iPad - set up glitch

    Initially, the App wouldn’t open and kept on “resetting”.
    So I deleted the App AND now it won’t let me complete the set up.

    It keeps of freezing at “ passcode required” stage. It won’t let me tap continue.

    I’ve tried this on a couple different iPads and have encountered the same problem.

    Please fix this glitch ASAP.

  4. Bottom info bar

    You have a bug which increases the space that the bottom info bar uses. The bug should be fixed. There should also be a button to minimize the bar if this happens.

  5. ‘Protect’ only renders on 2nd attempt

    When I try to send an encrypted message from my iOS browser or from the OWA app it does not give me the ‘Protect’ option upon first attempt. I have to close my message and try sending a new one to get that to come up when I click on the three dots.

  7. ACCESSING SHARED MAILBOX

    In the office, on our desktops, we run O365 with approx 12 accounts + 1no shared mailbox which we all have access to and move emails from our own accounts into relevant folders in the shared mailbox.

    WHY are we are unable to do the same on our iOS devices?? There have been numerous requests for this but it seems to fall on deaf ears.

    Microsoft? Please explain your difficulties.

  9. Reset crash

    The app was working fine until recently, then a dialogue box appeared while trying to opne the mailbox: "Reset OWA. You need to reset OWA. Resetting will delete any information that hasn't been sent to the server." Clicking on RESET causes the app to crash, clicking on CANCEL simply delays the process and the error dialogue returns. I've tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, but to no avail, it still constantly crashes. Any thoughts on how to resolve the issue?

  11. Flagging bug

    For months now, when I tap flag, the app is unresponsive and often does not update the email to show the message’s flag status. What’s worse, once a message is flagged, it marks the read message as “unread,” which is very annoying.

  12. Bottom Blue Bar

    Ever gonna fix the too-tall bottom blue bar that makes the app unusable after opening an attachment? It's apparently a common issue but there's never any indication that a fix is coming. Geez....
