  1. 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

      • BLOCK/PHISHING checked option

        An easily accessed way to REPORT & BLOCK phishing, spam or nuisance emails. Currently only 'delete' and 'archive' is available when multiple emails are checked. the archive feature is not widely used to my knowledge.

              • have a select button so you can delete multiple emails at once

                I would like to be able to delete multiple emails at the same time. I do not like the idea of having to open every email to delete it. many of the emails or spam or junk and I do not wish to open them. I prefer just to be able 2 delete them at one time.

                  Hi there,

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

                  It is currently already possible to perform bulk action in the app. 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 All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

                  Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. (Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support). We’re here to help.

                  Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

                  All the best

                  The Outlook Mobile Team

                  PS: Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions,…

                • Permanent delete

                  The swipe options do not give you an option to permanently delete an email. You can only delete which sends it to the trash.

                  • Would like to be able to access Office 365 Groups calendars from the Outlook mobile app.

                    We would like to be able to access Office 365 Groups calendars from the Outlook mobile app. We used to have this capability with the separate Groups app that has been discontinued. Microsoft stated that the features of that app would be rolled in to Outlook mobile. They have not as of 10/3/2018. We now have to find some other option for all the people who were using the Groups calendars through the mobile app. Frustrating.

                                    • 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.
