  1. In the outlook app you have swipe to schedule - this is very useful. Please include in OWA and Outlook Desktop. Easy way to sched follow up

    For sales people the swipe to schedule (to later have the email return to the in box is a very simple and useful way of scheduling a follow up for a prospect. It is in the Outlook app (which I have on my iphone) but not on the OWA app which I am using on my Samsung Tablet (as a replacement for my paper day planner). Also, on my Windows desktop, there is seemingly no similar function (there is flag for follow up but this creates an alarm and not a more subtle return of email to inbox as a…

  4. Allow swipe to next message

    When viewing an inbox item it'd be nice to be able to swipe to the next item instead of going back to the mailbox list screen first.

  5. PLEASE PLEASE ADD IN ABILITY TO SYNC AND CREATE OUTLOOK TASKS FOR ANDROID

    There is no way to get outlook tasks on android phone at the moment. This makes it very difficult to remeber what you need to do or add in new tasks on the go. Please add this to the Outlook app.

  6. Improve notifications

    Oh Boy, Lots of requests for notifications, I've got another one. I think there needs to be an indicator on the app launch link showing the number of recent emails received. Having the notifications go through the notification center is nice, but I get a lot of emails and am hearing the alert sound every 5 minutes. I'd like to turn that feature off and be able to just look at the phone and see I've got x new emails. I know people with the Iphone have this feature already.

  9. Change Notication Sound or Ringtone

    Allow changing the sound or ringtone used for email and calendar notification. Each should be able to be different. Reason? Because the default sounds for each is to similar and I keep missing calendar notifications for meetings. The email sound and the calendar sound are just way too much alike.

  10. Setting up this app to work offline - NOOOOOOO!

    I have been using this app for some time - probably many months or so (can't remember when it first came out). I use it on my Samsung Galaxy 4, and Galaxy Tab S.

    Recently, about a week to 10 days ago, whenever I open the app - either first thing in the morning, or continuously throughout the day - it always opens with "Setting up this app to work offline. This may take a few minutes".

    And they are correct - it does take a few minutes - each and every time I open it. Started happening on both…

  11. Create an option to to allow the font on Outgoing Mail to be changed

    Create an option to to allow the font on Outgoing Mail to be changed to the same as my Corporate OWA Web Server (like the signature feature). I would like the business email I send to look professional from any Outlook APP as opposed to this one sending in New Times Roman.
    Thanks for reading!

  14. Provide support for current Android o/s

    So many of your feedbacks are around support for current versions of Android. Latest app update is Jan 2015 - 18 months ago!
    How about getting the finger out and providing support for current version of Android. Irresponsible not to do so.
