              • Single notification sound when receiving multiple emails at once

                Have option for notification sound to play only once when receiving a bunch of emails at the same time. I occasionally get tens of hundreds of emails at all at once and my phone plays a sound for each one!

                    • Android outlook expand/collapse folders

                      Once you expand folders in Android app there is no way to collapse them
                      The only way to collapse is to close and reopen the app.

                      • Sync Calendar with Android built-in Calendar

                        Outlook for Android synchronises contacts with Android built-in contacts. It should do the same for the calendar so that the calendar information is available to other apps. I'm currently using the Nine app to do this. Outlook should do it.

                        • Do not disturb when off work (inverse of the current, when at work)

                          I want to not be disturbed when off work, i.e at home. Weekends are currently possible, but I want evenings as well. Just like the inverse of 'at work' do not disturb.
                          The reason being: I don't carry my laptop to every meeting, but would like notifications when I get an email or have an upcoming meeting

                            hi there,

                            You can now temporarily turn off your email notifications using the new Do not Disturb feature of the app. To do so simply tap on the 3 horizontal lines on the top left corner> Next tap on the bell icon next to the email address displayed or go to the “All Accounts” tab to set up do not disturb for all accounts connected to the app > Next choose the timed or scheduled option that best suits your needs.

                            If you have any questions or need assistance locating this feature please contact our in-app support team by going to Settings>Help & Feedback> Contact Support.

                            All the best

                            The Outlook Mobile Team

                            P.S. Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions, we are unable to see replies to this address.

                          • Split calendar out into a separate app so that I can switch between viewing an email (message body, not inbox) and my calendar.

                            If I am reading an email and need to view my calendar, I have to return to the Inbox view before I can switch to calendar. Then, if I need to go back to the same email, I have to find it again from the Inbox. Much better if email and calendar simply work as two separate apps, so that I can switch between them using android's built in task switcher.

                              • Keep outbox always visible

                                Please keep the outbox always visible in the menu. Often I send a mail and it disappears for hours: not in Draft anymore, not in Sent yet, and the Outbox disappears after a while, so you have no clue what is happening. Since there's no benefit in hiding it anyway the solution seems easy.
