  5. Better integration with Android. Not a selection in send with menu nor is Office a selection in menus. See Google Docs as a template.

    Better integration with Android. OWA not a selection in send with menu nor is Office a selection in menus for storage. Most competitive products are in these menus as well as being able to attach files from other cloud services or locations on phone. See Google Docs as a template

  6. No connetion to server

    I cant establish a connetion to the server. After login it tells me that the settings are found an correct, but a connetion to the server could not be established.

    It's the same problem for any device (Android, IPhone) for our company. Is there any server setting to change?

  8. Goes Offline and won't come back online

    On my Nexus 5 with Lollipop, the app randomly goes offline every few days, and will not reconnect without either uninstalling/reinstalling, or disabling device administrator, force stopping the app, clearing data/cache, and then setting up the account again.

  10. NOTIFICATIONS

    PLEASE enable to turn of email notifications - I don't need my phone vibrating for every email when I am sitting at my laptop - only when I am away from it - it would also be nice to let me have a weekend/holiday without them!

  11. Add Nexus 6

    Tried everything but can't seem to get around OWA's encryption portion - Says device is already encrypted (in Security), but OWA tries (unsuccessfully) to re-encrypt. It reboots straight back to Home, without having done any "additional" encryption, and continues to ask me to encrypt.

  13. Touch is too sensitive and opens emails when trying to scroll

    When trying to scroll through emails the app thinks you clicked an email and opens it instead of scrolling. It is almost impossible to scroll through folders or emails in the new version.

  14. Add Exchange Tasks

    I like that I can finally sync without issue with recurring calendar items. What is the chance of adding exchange task sync?

  15. notifications

    As a user I only wish to receive notifications for my calendar not email. Could these be separated out into 2 one/off toggle switches "Email notifications" and "Calendar notifications". By default have both turned on and be prompted to select your preference after installation?

  16. Stopped updating It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails.

    Stopped updating. It notifies that there has been a new email but will not refresh and load the new emails. Got it to update 2 days ago by re-installing but then yesterday it stopped updating again. Also now intermittently says "to view items in offline mode select all" when there is a connection and should not be offline.

  18. Option to bypass certification check

    The app is very simple to set but need a option to bypass the certification check on SSL connections because I think that now by this, when the certificate is outdated you can´t connect, and not have a option to say "Its OK, connect also".

  20. Inbox synch mode

    Inbox synch mode should be optional in how often you want it. Just like you can with other folders.
