  1. I wish it had the option to check email manually instead of always automatically

    I don't need this app constantly checking my email, a manual mode is what I'm asking for.

  2. Make a widget for this app

    One of the major benefits of the Android OS is the capability of widgets. I just installed this on my Galaxy S3 and was surprised to see that it does not a widget. I will not be replacing the Android default email app with OWA until it has a widget.

  4. Add the ability to access shared and delegated mailboxes

    it would be great to be able to open shared mailboxes on the go like you can in either outlook or a desktop web browser.

  5. Remove notification if the email is read on another device

    At the moment, new email notifications remain until they are opened or dismissed on the Android device.

    It would be nice if such notifications could be automatically removed if the email they relate to is read, marked as read or deleted on another device.

  6. You should really make it work with AirWatch MDM.

    I wanted to buy a windows based smart phone and our organization secure the mail with air-watch MDM. They told me it will not work well with Windows Phone. Can you believe that i will have to buy an Android phone mainly to use my outlook and Lync apps?

  8. Allow Separate Notification Control on Email & Calendar

    Many users prefer to use an integrated calendar APP, once the calendar event is sync to gmail (via 3rd party program), notification from OWA and notification from the build-in calendar APP is repeated and provided double reminders.

  9. Calendar All Day Events in Month View

    It would be nice if the month view of the calendar in the OWA app would show all day events. An option for this would be preferable.

    The current month view doesn't give you much information at all. I like to be able to look at the month and at a glance, see what days I have marked for holidays, vacation, or other important all day events.

    Use check box to set each contact as a Office 365 contact (sincronized with PC), as a device contact, a google contact or others...

  12. Add support for flagged e-mails in a task view

    On my PC I am using Outlook 2013 where I flag e-mails as reminders. Immediately afterwards I move them to the appropriate folder. Using the task list I have an overview of all flagged e-mails. This task list is not available on the Android app.
    I can view flagged e-mails, but only in a single folder.

  13. Add OWA as suggested app for sharing documents (like Outlook.com app).

    When I want to attach opened or selected document or photo to e-mail, OWA is not suggested as option. OneNote and Outlook.com app are.

  14. Is there a way to set up more than one Office 365 email account? We have some employees with multiple mailboxes @ different domains.

  16. Sync options and more options in Settings menu

    I would like the OWA app to be just like the Outlook app that I also have. This way I could enable/disable push, set the frequency to sync email or set it manual and set quiet time. Thanks

  18. Calendar options, sync time and organization

    It would be good if the calendar automatically loaded whatever outside subscribed calendars I have attached to my exchange calendar. They always pop up on the Web or through the outlook application on the pc.

    It would be good if the app had the new emails loaded when it was opened rather than having to wait 6 or so seconds for the app to sync properly. Also it would be good if you could select multiple emails for deletion or movie night at once rather than one at a time

  20. Offline Address Book (OAB)

    Users traveling without a data plan would benefit from having the GAL synced to their phone as this would allow them to access the contact information (e.g. phone number(s)) of any of the company's employees.
