  3. Replaces google as source of phone contacts

    Overrrides google (gmail) contacts as the contacts displayed on the phone. Removal of OWA as a contact sync source in android (contacts/accounts) blocked - requires adminitrator access!! I want to access business contacts only via the OWA app and keep personal gmail contacts as the primary (or only) source of default android device contacts.

  5. Samsung 5S

    Android APP on Samsung 5S when logging in I get error message, "We found your settings, but couldn't connect to the server because it was temporarily unavailable." I can access OWA through the web and also on my desktop Microsoft Outlook. App did work on my previous IPhone.

  6. Contacts won't sync correctly

    OWA app is generally pretty darn good, mail, search and calendar work great, but please fix the contact sync- contacts from the exchange 365 server do not sync with the OWA app, making it very difficult to compose and send Emails

  7. 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.

  8. Password change

    I had to change my AD password the other day from my desktop computer. My phone app stopped working, but I didn't notice right away because it never indicated to me in any obvious way that it wasn't working. I just finally noticed that my calendar wasn't showing appointments and then noticed that my email wasn't refreshing. I am now trying to figure out how I can change it in OWA and cant seem to figure out how to do it. If there is a way, maybe you can make it more obvious. I cant even uninstall it and re-install…

  9. App should be much faster + Should be much easier to replace password once it's expired

  13. It is too slow.

    Initialize and change screens is too slow.

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

    Worked fine on my Nexus 5 until I updated to Android Lollipop. Now it says "Couldn't connect. We found your settings, but couldn't connect to the server because it was temporarily unavailable. Try again later or contact your helpdesk."

    I've cleared cahce/data and reinstalled.

  16. Need more reliable calendar notifications - most of the time I don't receive them (on two different devices)

    It's hard to pin down, but it seems like I must be looking at OWA or have just switched to another app in the last 2-3 minutes to get calendar notifications. This isn't a problem for email notifications. I always receive those. We do have a 5 minute timeout/lock policy on the app via Exchange Online policy.

  17. How to setup app to keep no messages/folders for offline view?

    I use my default email app to sync messages for 1 week and I want to use OWA just to access emails that I cannot access with my default email app. Saying that, I don't want OWA to sync Inbox and Draft messages for Offline view. None. Not a one message. Zilch. Zero. How can I do that? I want access OWA just for online view, not offline. I don't want app to store copies of all Inbox and Draft messages. How can by Offline support turned off completely?

  18. Scrolling in lengthy emails

    When typing a lengthy email, there comes a point where the text goes under the keyboard and you cant see what you are typing. There is not any way to scroll so that you can see what you are typing.
