  1. Update for Chrome 63.0.3239.111

    I'm stuck on the login screen because every time the app tries to open it says it needs to reset. I read online that i could downgrade my version of Chrome to make the problem disappear, but i believe you should update the app instead.

    (Using a Galaxy S8)

  2. Notifications remain stale

    Notifications for email and calendar come to my phone but then remain there all day even after I've read the message or dismiss the reminder on my laptop Outlook MS Exchange. Sync these so that unread/new notifications disappear from phone if action is taken on another device.

  3. Email Push Notification with details

    Please add more details to the push notification about a new email. With the outlook app and even my native email app I get who sent the email, the subject and a brief view of the contents of the email in my notification bar. Please add this functionality to the OWA app.

  4. Please can you add option for landscape mode. Much easier to type on the 6" style phones

    With so many new phones adopting the 6" plus format and 18:9 aspect ratio it would be useful to have access to landscape mode for effective typing

  6. OWA doesn't need access to contscts

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

  8. 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?

  13. 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!

  15. 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.

  20. 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.
