      • Touch-ID

        It would be nice, if the OWA-app under iOS support the touch-id to unlock the app on iphone or other device. It's clear, that the touch-id can only replace the common identification "kennung (in german)" if the user has enanled the touch-id on his device. If he has not, then the app must still require the identifying information in characters to unlock.

        Thank for reading.

            • How do I get rid of the large blue box at the bottom of the screen?

              It just randomly appears, and I can't get it to go away. It has the effect of sliding the entire screen upward, and I can't see the top of the page without scrolling and holding it.

                We need to have certain words in bold for our signature in our company. For some reason the app won’t allow bold lettering in my signature. Please fix

                • Multiple accounts

                  Why can't you support multiple outlook accounts? I'm forced to have a cutdown Microsoft email account for uni but if I want to use a normal Microsoft account and link it to all the Microsoft services I need another account. The problem is I can't maintain two and use outlook. I am forced into two accounts but two accounts are not supported. What a joke!

                    • 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.

                        • Fix the Stupid OWA App

                          The new update is worthless. Cannot access any emails. I don’t understand why they just don’t withdraw and put back last version until you fix the issue. The person running division of O365 should be fired!

                          • OWA for iPhone is NOT operational

                            Team,

                            See hardware, iOS version and app version detail below:

                            iPhone 6s 128GB

                            On start up, a banner is displayed at the top of the screen with this message:

                            The app needs to be updated. To update, select the Refresh button.

                            The App the loads to the inbox and the status bar at the bottom of the screen displays this message:

                                • 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?

                                      • Saving attachements

                                        Hi, there is not good way of saving an attachement to a directory or to different cloud apps (eg Dropbox, iCloud). Impossible also to select a specific directory in share point. Could at the very least share point be linked to OWA ?

                                        • Add “shared folders” view to the sidebar

                                          Online I have a shared folder that is the mailbox for another account. It shows up on the online browser version of OWA and the iPhone version of OWA, but not on the iPad app. I would like if I could also access the shared folder on the OWA for iPad app as well.
