  1. Keep last activity states so when I switch between mail & calendar, I can return to the same open mail item or event!

    I suggest you keep the last opened Activity view in memory, including it's view and selection states, whether that be within the 'mail' or 'calendar' other activity, so that when a user leaves said activiy to go to another sub-section of the app (mail, calendar, files, people), upon return the previously viewed activity will be open. A common workflow would be 1) user sees new mail 2) user opens mail and discovers an inquiry about a meeting date/time 3) user opens the 'calendar' sub-section to see avialabilty, 4) user returns to mail to reply 5) user finds the mail is…

  2. Notification for calendar reminder is wrong for Swedish language.

    The text "in 2 minutes" translates to "i 2 minuter" which is wrong. Correct translation would be "om 2 minuter".

  4. Connect Facebook messenger, Twitter, Instagram and whatsapp in the contact section. One stop shop

    The desktop outlook is the most robust mail client, always has been and always will be. I think you should make it easy for us to use Outlook for Android to keep tabs with all our social media. Beat Google at their own game.

  7. accessibility webscripts

    other third-party apps offer accessibility webscripts when Reading emails, so that talkback users can easily read messages and click on their links (if any). currently, Outlook for Android is not offering accessibility webscripts. therefore, talkback users can only read part of a messaje but they cannot tap on a link if there's any.
    accessibility webscripts are part of google's accessibility system, and it's integrated in other email apps for Android, such as Gmail, or aqua mail.

  8. use a single account for all Microsoft services

    On Android, all Microsoft apps have their own accounts(cortana, onedrive, outlook... , office suite uses office account). But why can't you guys use a single account for everything, like Windows 10 or Androids Google account. And create exceptions for apps like skype. For different Microsoft account types(personal, school, business) just offer new accounts, Microsoft apps should ask the user which account they want to use if they have multiple account.

  9. Show unread email count on Android wear watch face

    I often want to turn off notifications of new emails, but see the number of unread emails on the watch face. I would then want to click the email count icon to triage the emails like you can with the notifications. This keeps the functionality but removes the intrusive nature of the notifications

  12. change position of 'deleting event'

    I believe it's a better idea to place a delete icon next to the save icon. whenever I want to delete an event, I have to scroll down to delete. but fist my keyboard opens, so I have to close that first. a better ux would be to change the position.

  13. Notifications of updated version of dogfood, as it doesn't come from Play Store

    Since you have to install the internal version with the APK, it doesn't auto update. Push notifications for newer versions

  15. update the button icons to show purpose

    two left arrows and three right?
    I can't believe that this app was developed by the same company which gave us the windows phone metro interface. literally I feel like one of those old people who dare not use more than the basic 4 buttons on their DvD player, for the first time in my life.
    For the sake of Equality and Diversity, I'm surprised no-one has sued you yet.
    You need to upgrade all of the buttons to indicate what they do. You seem to have thrown the app together with no thought at all. swipe left and right…

  20. take delete button out of drop down, put on top.

    too many clicks to delete email. there needs to be a Delete icon on top, not having open up a drop-down menu.
