  4. 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.

  8. Stuck downloading an app update

    I am stuck in an endless loop of "downloading an app update", "checking for new mail", and after it asks me to 'Refresh' to install the situation repeats. Uninstalling the OWA and reinstalling it does not work. I am on Android 7.1.

  9. [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

  10. Compose New Email Button Does Nothing (intermittent)

    A lot of the time after launching the OWA for Android app, then clicking the "new email" button, nothing happens.

    Sometimes the new email screen shows up after a long time (~10 seconds later), and sometimes it shows up right away.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  18. It is too slow.

    Initialize and change screens is too slow.

    The app is good but, a little bit faster would make great success.

  20. won't allow uninstall

    I need to uninstall and reinstall since I mistakenly chose device admin during setup which won't seem to allow me to proceed through the set new password screen. I can't uninstall until I deactivate and the deactivate button doesn't seem to do anything.
