I can set my "out of office"/ automated responses email from the web app. I think we should be able to set it from the mobile app.

Through mobile outlook app one should be allowed to set out of office message.
Great idea I'm all for it!

The out of office setting is very hard to find. It's hidden behind a bunch of screens, not obviously on the settings screen. It is also missing features that owa has, like "cancel my meetings today" and "turn off at a specific time"

can't see how to do it, and no opportunity to search for bow to do it.

Touchdown had this feature and I used it all the time. I would forget to set my ooo until I was on vacation. Being able to do it on the app at the airport was so easy.

You have answered some other questions on this list without understanding the problem. PC version allows you to set times for OOO to come on and go off. Android version doesn't allow this. Why?
