  1. Startup crash on iOS 8.2

    Takes an average of 5-6 attempts to open the app following my update to iOS 8.2.
    I used to occasionally have problems opening the app but it's not happening every time.

  4. Notifications broken

    I'm not sure why, but notifications are broken again. I will have to stop using the app all together because I am missing time-sensitive messages. This is the newest version, running on iPhone 5s.

  8. Bug introduced with phone numbers in international dialing format

    As part of a recent update phone number links from the user profile pages that are in international dialing format are now broken.

    A phone number might display as +1 234 567 8901 when you select it the phone attempts to dial 2B12345678901 which obviously does not work.

    2B is of course the hex value of the ASCII character '+' so it seems there is a fairly simple bug in how the information is being passed between OWA and the phone application.

    Presumably an openURL call is being made with a URL that should look like "tel:+12345678901", but there is…

  10. iPad App Constantly Blanks Out Email List

    The email portion of the OWA for iPad constantly looses the list on the left side. It goes blank and the only way to get the list back is to shut down the program and restart. The Calendar has the same problem with the times on the left. It shows the dates and content but the list of times on the left disappears. Same solution. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app does not correct the problem. iPad is fully updated and the OWA app is current.

  13. ios 9 beta

    The app isn't compatible with iOS 9 beta 1 -- can't login. Initially takes the info, says it 'can't find settings', then manually entering server info as outlook.office365.com doesn't work either.

  14. Switching from calendar to outlook

    Just recently it seems that when I am in the app using outlook, switch to the calendar, and then back again...the list of emails is blank. The count at the top still shows I have emails but the list of emails that were there just before I switched are gone. Just to clarify, it is just a view thing...the emails are still there I just can't see them. I then need to close the app and restart to have them reappear.

  15. Format disappeared in phone version

    i have drafted an email using my laptop and saved it as a draft.

    After i used my phone to send out the drafted email, i found that the format was changed. Even worse, a table in the email has changed into plaint text. It's horrible! This makes a big trouble for my work!!

  18. Read the feedback - fix the 'mark as junk'

    Please read the requests and act on them. Just because there aren't 5 million requests for it, doesn't mean you don't need to fix it.

    Once the reader decides that an email is junk/spam, it should then be immediately sent to the junk file. It used to work before but it hasn't for at least 6 months to a year. Please fix it !!

  19. Separate Operating System in DeviceUserAgent Description

    Exchange 2013 Active Sync uses the name Outlook-iOS-Android/1.0 as the DeviceUserAgent to describe the app. The app will force full disk encryption on any device if it is configured in Active Sync. Due to the ongoing encryption issues with Android, it would be great if the description would list it as Outlook-iOS/1.0 or Outlook-Android/1.0 then we can quarantine or white list based on that description.
