    • Search

      I like this app and it does come in handy the only other issue that I'm having other than or being able to hear the audio files left as voicemails is the search for emails and calendars. When you put in a key word in the search for emails it doesn't give you a list to the emails associated with that key word and it has to be an email address or know exactly who or what it was in regards to. In regards to the calendar search if you put either the first or last name of the client…

        • Can't see controls at top and bottom.

          The controls at the top left and bottom right are cut off making them unreadable and almost unusable if you don't know what you're looking for.

            • Decline meeting request with an answer not working

              When I'm trying to decline a meeting request and choose the option to write an answer, nothing happens. I suppose that a new window should open up for me to write in, but nothing happens. The menu closes, but nothing happens.

              • Calendar Alerts

                I may go a month or two between times opening OWA On one or more of my devices, since I use OWA on multiple devices. When I open OWA, I get calendar alerts for every event in that timeframe in the past. This causes the app to be unusable as I tap through the multitude of alerts. I should not see calendar alerts for events that happened in the past.

                • BUG - Calendar

                  Android platform BUG: Calendar:

                  When I add share a calendar (from TeamSnap.com) to either the Calendar on my desktop or if I go into OWA using by browser, the calendar does not show up in the list of available calendars.

                  Compare: If I use the regular Outlook app (not owa), then if I add the calendar to my desktop, it does not show in the regular Outlook app. Howere if I add it to the OWA from my browser, then it shows up both on my desktop outlook and my regular outlook app on the phone.

                  Conclusion. Outlook is capable…

                      • Simplify multiple accounts

                        Adding an option to the main settings menu to add or edit a secondary account would make the app much more usable for those balancing work and personal accounts.

                        • New mail notification

                          Really need to update the app so it notify you when you get new mail. The app notifies you for calendar events but not new email. It's a serious design / engineering / programming fault and should have notifications for new mail. Every app sends notifications even the Microsoft outlook app sends new mail notifications. The problem is the owa app lets you add contacts where as the outlook app doesn't. The outlook app sends new mail notifications and the owa app doesn't. So I'm running both apps just to have add contacts with the owa app.. and have the…

                                    • Trouble navigating

                                      I find that sometimes a status box appears at the bottom which stops me being able to navigate. I haven't figured out how to turn it off and go back to viewing email normally.

                                        • Allow Font Size option

                                          This would make it easier for people with eyesight problems.
