  3. CONTACTS SAVE

    Make EDIT CONTACTS actually work - it does not allow SAVE of any changes to a contact at all - the SAVE button simply does nothing after editing only CANCEL button works!

  5. Integrate biometric / fingerprint login

    OWA for iPhone allows biometric logon. The Android version requires the passcode even if the device has a fingerprint reader.

  7. Pebble

    Make sure notifications work with the Pebble device. I would like check boxes for both calendar and mail so that I can turn off mail but get reminders for meetings.

  9. Add LG G5

    I don't think the app is ready for this phone yet. Each time I tap the icon it takes me to the Google play store where I have the option of opening or uninstalling the app. So I open it and it works well. But what an odd way to access it.

  11. PLEASE PLEASE ADD IN ABILITY TO SYNC AND CREATE OUTLOOK TASKS FOR ANDROID

    There is no way to get outlook tasks on android phone at the moment. This makes it very difficult to remeber what you need to do or add in new tasks on the go. Please add this to the Outlook app.

  12. New users - no point in downloading app. Quits working when your work makes you change your password.

    Everyone needs instructions to change password on app when work makes us change password. App no good unless fixed.

  15. Calendar Options window won't "close"

    While in Calendar, tapping the Options button opens but doesn't allow for closure always. Issue is sporadic. Requires closing the app and reopening to recover. Tested on 5 devices and issue occurs on all 5.

  18. Setting up this app to work offline - NOOOOOOO!

    I have been using this app for some time - probably many months or so (can't remember when it first came out). I use it on my Samsung Galaxy 4, and Galaxy Tab S.

    Recently, about a week to 10 days ago, whenever I open the app - either first thing in the morning, or continuously throughout the day - it *always* opens with "Setting up this app to work offline. This may take a few minutes".

    And they are correct - it does take a few minutes - each and every time I open it. Started happening on both…
