  1. 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. 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. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Use PIN or password on app itself like the Apple app

    Use a PIN or password on app itself like Apple App instead of requiring it to simply use the phone. I don't want to enter a pin or password every time I use the phone just to make a phone call or read a text message. I don't need to use a password or PIN to use my iPad, only when I actually when I use the app to check my secure Outlook work email. It doesn't make sense to require it just to turn on the phone when I don't need to access this app.

  15. [notification]: enable LED to notify of new email arrival (typically BLUE for OWA)

    A feature I find very convenient on touchdown is the capability to configure the LED for NEW email arrival.
    By default SMS & GMAIL are having a WHITE led blinking.
    It could be convenient to have a BLUE (maybe configurable) notification for new OWA email.
    I am using a nexus 5

  17. show number of new messages as icon overlay

    Most android communication apps show the number of new messages directly on the app icon, it would be great if OWA could do that as well.

  18. 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

  20. Is there a way to set up more than one Office 365 email account? We have some employees with multiple mailboxes @ different domains.
