  3. 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.

  5. CONTACTS SAVE

    Make EDIT CONTACTS actually work - it does not allow SAVE of any changes to a contact at all - the SAVE button simply does nothing after editing only CANCEL button works!

  7. Add LG G5

    I don't think the app is ready for this phone yet. Each time I tap the icon it takes me to the Google play store where I have the option of opening or uninstalling the app. So I open it and it works well. But what an odd way to access it.

  8. Pebble

    Make sure notifications work with the Pebble device. I would like check boxes for both calendar and mail so that I can turn off mail but get reminders for meetings.

  10. Integrate biometric / fingerprint login

    OWA for iPhone allows biometric logon. The Android version requires the passcode even if the device has a fingerprint reader.

  14. Calendar Options window won't "close"

    While in Calendar, tapping the Options button opens but doesn't allow for closure always. Issue is sporadic. Requires closing the app and reopening to recover. Tested on 5 devices and issue occurs on all 5.

  15. 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

  18. New users - no point in downloading app. Quits working when your work makes you change your password.

    Everyone needs instructions to change password on app when work makes us change password. App no good unless fixed.

  19. Use the photo taken with "New photo", not just any photo

    OWA prompts for which app to use to take the photo, but then attaches latest photo taken with the native photo app regardless of app choice. This leads to embarrassment and confused recipients.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to allow the photo to be viewed/opened before sending.

  20. Sync settings are blank and uneditable, cannot set to manual sync

    I like to have access to my work email on my phone but I get a lot of system generated emails that are of alarm conditions on our HVAC system when I am not on call. For that reason I want to be able to turn off the automatic syncing of email that this app does. I attempted to access the sync settings on my LG G4 under Settings:OWA and it opens a page with a title of DATA & SYNC but the page is blank with no settings. I also cannot find this option in the app itself. I…
