  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  7. Back key on Samsung Galaxy S6

    "Back" key on Samasung Galaxy S6 needs to be pressed twice to go back to mail list after opening an email. This is obviously a bug...

  8. 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.

  15. Add indicator light function

    Would like to see indicator light function added. Realizing that this is a light version of outlook, this small feature would significantly improve the app's business functionality. My company's IT department prohibits connecting with the full version of outlook on personal devices.

  17. Update please

    Please update OWA and release it like IOS. OWA is a far superior app than the Microsoft Outlook application but needs some major updating.

  18. Microsoft must make up its mind whether it will continue to develop this app or not

    This is the only app that can access shared Exchange calendars. Supposedly the Outlook Android app will do it one day but until then I have to use this. But of course this has been in pre-release since, what, 2013? This site is still soliciting suggestions but elsewhere in MS support I've read that it "will be deprecated." So be honest with us, MS: do you have any intention of making this app better? If you do, please implement at least one of the hundreds of suggestions here and put out an update. If you don't, please just shut down…
