  5. Single Line View of Message List

    In regular Outlook, you can go to View - Message Preview and set it to "Off" so that the From and Subject are on a SINGLE line. When you try to turn off message preview for OWA, it still displays the From and Subject on 2 separate lines. Want them on a single line so I can see more messages.

  8. 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

  9. Calendar view

    Need to be able to see the calendar in at the very least a weekly view, daily is just not suitable!
    There should be several view options at the very least.

  10. Disable OWA for Devices by Policy

    Exchange Online has a PowerShell command Set-OwaMailboxPolicy. In that policy, you should be able to disable OWA for Devices.

    The only way to currently disable OWA for Devices is on a per mailbox basis. The only way to currently disable OWA for Devices is on a per mailbox basis via GUI or the PowerShell command, Set-CasMailbox -OwaForDevicesEnabled:0.

    OWA for Devices should be considered a security risk by any org currently using Intune and and Azure AD Conditional Access because it doesn't obey MDM Compliance & Conditional Access policies.

    OWA for Devices also doesn't use modern authentication by default and thus…

  11. Calendar is blank!!!

    Highly irritating. I choose calendar from the OWA app and it shows the template but only some of my events. It seems to have my all day events, but everything else is MIA. I can toggle back and forth and finally get them to appear, but I can't relay on the validity of the entries ....

  13. 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.

  14. Email screen formatting

    Emails do not size appropriately into iPhone screen, requiring scrolling around to read full content.

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Add shared mailbox support to outlook app on iOS

    Add shared mailbox support to outlook app on iOS devices. Many small buisnesses depend on shared mailboxes and while there are some unsupported workarounds using native Mail app, none of them are satisfying. Outlook app for iOS is a great app and this feature would increase usership.
    Thank you.
