  3. need contact sync both ways.

    When I use the dialer it doesn't pull the contacts from OWA and OWA doesn't sync with my phones contact list. This makes it useless to manager a large contact list.

  5. App asks to reset every time I open it.

    Every time I start the app I get an error that says "Reset Owa - You need to reset OWA. This will delete any data not sent to the server." Then I have to reset the app and re set up my entire email.

  8. problem with encryption

    I installed the app on my xperia Z5 compact. Followed all the steps including encryption of the mobile. Nevertheless after encryption, the modile restart and now if I want to connect to OWA, it keeps on saying your mobile needs to be encrypted and stays on this page with option continue or reinitialize. If I press continue it would come back on the same page.

  11. Better integration with Android. Not a selection in send with menu nor is Office a selection in menus. See Google Docs as a template.

    Better integration with Android. OWA not a selection in send with menu nor is Office a selection in menus for storage. Most competitive products are in these menus as well as being able to attach files from other cloud services or locations on phone. See Google Docs as a template

  13. Turn off email notification

    It should be possible to turn off email notifications as well as calendar notifications. At our work we normally work with the computers the whole day and don't want/need to have notifications on the phone also. But it is good to have the possibility to turn it on when you are out travelling.

  18. Add Nexus 6

    Tried everything but can't seem to get around OWA's encryption portion - Says device is already encrypted (in Security), but OWA tries (unsuccessfully) to re-encrypt. It reboots straight back to Home, without having done any "additional" encryption, and continues to ask me to encrypt.

  20. No connetion to server

    I cant establish a connetion to the server. After login it tells me that the settings are found an correct, but a connetion to the server could not be established.

    It's the same problem for any device (Android, IPhone) for our company. Is there any server setting to change?
