    • Stuck downloading an app update

      I am stuck in an endless loop of "downloading an app update", "checking for new mail", and after it asks me to 'Refresh' to install the situation repeats. Uninstalling the OWA and reinstalling it does not work. I am on Android 7.1.

            • OWA doesn't need access to contscts

              Don't require contact access. Outlook is normally for work, why require personal device contacts?

                • I need to sign into multiple OWA accounts. Allow easy account switching.

                  I have multiple accounts that would use OWA. For example a school account and a work account. I need both, but I can't use both of them in the phone app. As a matter of fact there's not even an easy way to log out of the OWA app so I can switch accounts!

                  • If we are using Microsoft Office Home, how is this supposed to work?

                    I was fine with the beta and Microsoft Office Home; why cannot use it without having to pay more to change my Office account?

                          • Error message states that device must be encrypted

                            During setup a message states that the device must be encrypted. Selecting "Continue" does nothing. The error is occurring on a Galaxy S7, which is encrypted by default.

                                  • This app stops working every couple of days requiring it to be removed and re-installed.

                                    The app says it is offline and there is no way to get it back online without reinstalling the app which is a royal pain. The app will also no allow a password change - which means you again have to reinstall the app.

                                      • separate notification options for mail and calendar

                                        Allow for separate notification options between calendar and email; i.e. one alert sound/vibration type for new messages (or the ability to turn off email alerts but leave calendar alerts turned on) and another sound/vibration type for calendar events
