  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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…

  13. Use the photo taken with "New photo", not just any photo

    OWA prompts for which app to use to take the photo, but then attaches latest photo taken with the native photo app regardless of app choice. This leads to embarrassment and confused recipients.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to allow the photo to be viewed/opened before sending.

  14. Allow swipe to next message

    When viewing an inbox item it'd be nice to be able to swipe to the next item instead of going back to the mailbox list screen first.

  15. Improve notifications

    Oh Boy, Lots of requests for notifications, I've got another one. I think there needs to be an indicator on the app launch link showing the number of recent emails received. Having the notifications go through the notification center is nice, but I get a lot of emails and am hearing the alert sound every 5 minutes. I'd like to turn that feature off and be able to just look at the phone and see I've got x new emails. I know people with the Iphone have this feature already.

  16. Sync settings are blank and uneditable, cannot set to manual sync

    I like to have access to my work email on my phone but I get a lot of system generated emails that are of alarm conditions on our HVAC system when I am not on call. For that reason I want to be able to turn off the automatic syncing of email that this app does. I attempted to access the sync settings on my LG G4 under Settings:OWA and it opens a page with a title of DATA & SYNC but the page is blank with no settings. I also cannot find this option in the app itself. I…

  17. In the outlook app you have swipe to schedule - this is very useful. Please include in OWA and Outlook Desktop. Easy way to sched follow up

    For sales people the swipe to schedule (to later have the email return to the in box is a very simple and useful way of scheduling a follow up for a prospect. It is in the Outlook app (which I have on my iphone) but not on the OWA app which I am using on my Samsung Tablet (as a replacement for my paper day planner). Also, on my Windows desktop, there is seemingly no similar function (there is flag for follow up but this creates an alarm and not a more subtle return of email to inbox as a…

  18. 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.

  19. Create an option to to allow the font on Outgoing Mail to be changed

    Create an option to to allow the font on Outgoing Mail to be changed to the same as my Corporate OWA Web Server (like the signature feature). I would like the business email I send to look professional from any Outlook APP as opposed to this one sending in New Times Roman.
    Thanks for reading!
