  1. Goes Offline and won't come back online

    On my Nexus 5 with Lollipop, the app randomly goes offline every few days, and will not reconnect without either uninstalling/reinstalling, or disabling device administrator, force stopping the app, clearing data/cache, and then setting up the account again.

  2. Disable all email notifications

    Microsoft stated here https://owa.uservoice.com/forums/255426-owa-for-android-pre-release/suggestions/6125173-allow-notifications-to-be-disabled that a feature was completed to allow disabling of all email notifications. This is incorrect. I can disable notifications for calendar reminders (with sound on/off), but there is no option to disable notifications for email (which is what I really would like to do).
    There should be 3 options: Regular notifications (with sound), Silent notifications that still appear in the notification list, and None (no noise, nothing added to the notification list).

    When you check email on a PC regularly, and on your phone occasionally, you really don't need to be pinged all day about emails…

  3. Touch is too sensitive and opens emails when trying to scroll

    When trying to scroll through emails the app thinks you clicked an email and opens it instead of scrolling. It is almost impossible to scroll through folders or emails in the new version.

  5. Calendar Sync to Phone Calendar

    It would be nice if the OWA app could be configured to sync the outlook calendar to my phone's calendar.

    I prefer the way my phone's calendar looks and the ability it has to give me more information when in month view. (Like all day events)

  6. 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.

  9. Remove notification if the email is read on another device

    At the moment, new email notifications remain until they are opened or dismissed on the Android device.

    It would be nice if such notifications could be automatically removed if the email they relate to is read, marked as read or deleted on another device.

  12. Make a widget for this app

    One of the major benefits of the Android OS is the capability of widgets. I just installed this on my Galaxy S3 and was surprised to see that it does not a widget. I will not be replacing the Android default email app with OWA until it has a widget.

  13. Add Support for ALL devices Runing Android 4.1+ ATLEAST

    Don't bound users from using different devices running same Android version, Add support for all devices rather than filtering out device types or manufacturers.

    Android is an Open Source project, a thousand different different types devices are running on this platform, latest research says even now more than 50+ Android users are on Jelly Bean (4.1 to 4.3), so think of them too.

    Thanks

  14. 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.

  15. Sync options and more options in Settings menu

    I would like the OWA app to be just like the Outlook app that I also have. This way I could enable/disable push, set the frequency to sync email or set it manual and set quiet time. Thanks

  16. Offline Address Book (OAB)

    Users traveling without a data plan would benefit from having the GAL synced to their phone as this would allow them to access the contact information (e.g. phone number(s)) of any of the company's employees.

  17. Notifications

    Why aren't notifications for new emails working? Notifications for calendar appointments work but email notifications do not.

    The app respects a user’s mobile device policy with regards to simple PIN, complex PIN and encryption. Can you provide more details about your mobile device policy?

  19. Stopped updating It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails.

    Stopped updating. It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails. Got it to update 2 days ago by re-installing but then yesterday it stopped updating again. Also now intermittently says "to view items in offline mode select all" when there is a connection and should not be offline.

  20. Add Tasks

    The OWA app is not compete without tasks. As a dedicated Outlook user for many years, I have developed a daily planning system which includes planning my calendar each day after reviewing my mail and my tasks. How can I plan my calendar without Tasks.
    In order for the OWA app to be fully functional, you need to be able to monitor your current tasks and have a place to capture new tasks.
    Big whole.
