  3. create an app or improve the current app to better support the Outlook Calendar.

    Outlook Calendar doesn't seem to communicate well with Android calendar widgets, and it's not particularly user friendly via the Outlook app. Improving the app or creating a separate app/widget to better utilize the Calendar would be helpful.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    The Outlook for Android app already has a widget that you can add on your home screen. To do this, go to your widgets and look for “Outlook” and choose the Outlook Agenda Widget.

  5. Be able to add your Microsoft Outlook.com account calendar to the outlook app calendar.

    You are given a calendar that is associated with your Microsoft account. This calendar is viewable on outlook.com as well as the Mail desktop app on Windows. Since it is not associated to an email, the outlook mobile app does not add this calendar.

    It would be nice to have the outlook app be able to connect to your Microsoft account and use this calendar.

    I am not talking about the calendar that you get when you have a Office 365 subscription, but the free calendar you get with your Microsoft account.

  7. Provide a schedule to turn off notifications during weekday nights. I don't want to set it everyday as suggested in answers elsewhere.

    Currently there is no way to snooze notification during weekday nights in an automated fashion. We can do it for work hours and also during weekends. Suggested answer elsewhere is to set it manually each day which is not convenient.

    I am thrilled to tell you that it is possible to add Facebook calendar on the app! :) All you have to do is open the settings menu and scroll down to the calendar section. Tap on Calendar Apps, then tap the Add button next to the app you would like to connect. Follow the on-screen prompts to log in.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.

    1. Delete button in reading view.

    Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.

    2. Swipe to delete.

    Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.

    3. Bulk delete.

    This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform the following actions: deleting, marking as read, archiving. A “Select…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook and letting us know about your current experience. We really appreciate your support.

    We are so sorry this is happening to you. This is not how it’s supposed to work. You’ve reached a support channel that is dedicated to feature requests only, but I would suggest that you refresh the account and see if that helps and fix the issue on your app. To do this, open our app —> Settings —> Select the email account —> Reset/Refresh Account

    If that doesn’t work, don’t worry, we have helpful colleagues over the in-app support who are more than happy to have this sorted out. You may reach them through the Help Section of the app (Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support) so that we can assist you in the best possible way.

    We look forward to fixing this for you.
