          • Update...???

            Team,

            Every time this app has update is never updates like a normal app and doesn't allow utilization, even after I hit refresh app. I know updates are important... However, Please remember utilization of the app for the user is important too; and when this app does this is becomes useless... Please help change this, I've seen the issue every time and this is first time speaking out and not just waiting and hoping all is well. Than you in advance for hopefully fixing this issue moving forward!

            Note: I have an Iphone 7s plus.

            Best regards,
            Kevin

            • Calendar time picker

              Please change the calendar time selector UI. There's got to be a more efficient way to enter a time than the scrolling numbers and am/pm options. Maybe a slider in 15 minute increments or direct typed entries. The current UI is inefficient, at best.

              • Can't insert attachment

                I am frustrated because I have a large email list to whom I have to send an attachment. I restarted the iPad, I reset the OWA account with no avail. I am not sure why I can't insert attachment.

                • Adding attachments other than photos

                  I would really like to be able to send a document from my iPad when I am at remote locations. Currently, the only option made available is to attach a picture. Is there a way this can be fixed?

                  • Contact sync not working

                    New contacts are stored in the OWA group, but they get not synced. If you disable contact sync in OWA, the contacts, created on the iPhone, are still in the OWA group shown, but never synced.

                    • Calendar Options

                      I am an editor for my bosses calendar and inbox...when I am in Outlook I can email and add to his calendar as him. It shows up under my calendar.. In OWA it does not show his calendar at all.

                      I see the other staffer in my office and have permission to only edit their calendars so they show in people's calendar.

                      Is there a way to have my boss' calendar also show in people's calendar instead of not there at all.

                            Why is it sooooooooo hard to sign out? It should NOT be that difficult signing out from the OWA app. It's almost impossible

                              How come in OWA you can changed the startup saved password ? Now I have to delete the app and reinstall it.
                              Not really user friendly unless here is a function hidden somewhere!!!

                                  • Text "invisible" when typing

                                    I've noticed a bug of sorts with the latest update. Whenever I'm typing a semi-lengthy email (more than a sentence or two), the words I am typing will suddenly stop showing up. The cursor keeps moving and autocorrect is still correcting things, but I can't see them without either closing and reopening the email or scrolling around a bit until the text displays.

                                      Currently no practical way to view or use a shared mailbox on an iphone.

                                      Please add the ability to add a shared mailbox (one the user is authorised to access),

                                        I have my own work calendar and several other calendars that have been added as favorites. Only one of those calendars appears. Is there a way to have them all appear?

                                          How can I delete all emails or empty you entire inbox and deleted folder?

                                          I have a iPhone 4S and it seems to be very difficult to this :(

                                          Please help me emptying inbox and deleted emails :'(
