  3. Notes

    When you type a note on a appointment the note only shows the first letter then the rest of what you are typing is white out. It will not show the rest of what you typed until you hit the done button.

  6. PLEASE READ. YOUR APPS SUCK.

    For some reason, on my Galaxy now, I'm not receiving newer emails. I'm getting notifications, but the newer emails aren't showing. Is it because I've gone over 1000 emails on my Galaxy phone app? If that's the case, that's pretty pathetic that it does that.

    Second, why the **** does the app on my iPad keep crashing or closing in the middle of composing an email??!!??!!?? It seriously happens maybe every 30 seconds. I then have to log back in and it's becoming a hassle, never seen anything like this ever. Horrible.

    Lastly, you guys need more features. An option…

  7. Is it supposed to not open e-mail?

    For the last couple of hrs I can't open e-mail? I can see them. I just can't open them. Is this a new security feature?

  8. Bug: cannot turn off notifications

    In the app settings, "notifications" are always set to "on". Even if the box for calendar notifications is unchecked, the settings screen still says that notifications are "on".

    There is no checkbox for email notifications (as opposed to calendar notifications), so you cannot have calendar notifications turned on while email notifications are turned off. The only way to disable email notifications is turn off notifications for the entire app in iOS, which prevents you from getting calendar notifications.

  11. Outlook files->drives access vulnerability

    Free form drive access (google/one drive/iCloud) in files tab/category makes it vulnerable to unwanted access by other person who's handling iPhone temporarily.

    Password protection is must as some contents in drive are very personal & confidential. All drive apps provide password protection.

    Password protection for mail is not necessary, but to files section very much necessary.

    Clearing of recent access should also be provided.. Clear cache is not best supplement to solution.

  12. Mail Sync Non-Functional

    The last time OWA synced with the mail server was *September 2014*! I have been unable to find ANY mechanism to generate a sync and check my mail. Hello! I haven't been able to use OWA to get to my email for SIX MONTHS! This is inexcusable. Obviously I'm going to have to start using an email program that actually works.

  13. Deleting trash

    Is there a way to empty the trash without doing it one by one? It's very time-consuming to do each one individually but I can't find another way

  16. Offline

    My iPhone has been telling me my folders can't be read offline. I've been on 2 different wifis and now on my cellular network and can't get emails. I hope this stops by tomorrow.

  17. OWA does not work for iPad or Android Nexus 6

    I am allowed to login into the OWA app for iPad but it will not show the content of my messages. I tried deleting and reinstalling but it still does not operate properly.

    On my Android Nexus 6 I am not able to log in at all no matter what I do. The only hardware that works right is my iPhone 6 plus. It allows me to login and fully see my emails. However, it does provide real time push notifications.
