Please note that participation here is totally voluntary and the suggestion box is monitored. If your submission isn’t a suggestion, it might be removed. List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the Microsoft product team.

  1. need contact sync both ways.

    When I use the dialer it doesn't pull the contacts from OWA and OWA doesn't sync with my phones contact list. This makes it useless to manager a large contact list.

  4. Turn off email notification

    It should be possible to turn off email notifications as well as calendar notifications. At our work we normally work with the computers the whole day and don't want/need to have notifications on the phone also. But it is good to have the possibility to turn it on when you are out travelling.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
