  2. Speed Performance

    The Outlook app takes a long time to work each time when changing between apps. This is the case even when the app is already open. The screen is blank for ten seconds or maybe longer before it loads. Compared to accessing the Exchange server through the native iOS Mail app, which my company disabled in the past year, performance has been slower and sluggish.

  3. Allow users to disable Text Predictions

    Earlier this year, Microsoft added the "Text Predictions" feature to Outlook for iOS. This feature predicts what users are trying to type as they are typing. Although the company allows users to disable this feature on Outlook and Outlook.com, it does not offer that functionality on Outlook for iOS. (Disabling the feature via the main iPhone settings menu only disables it for Apple apps, not for third-party apps like Outlook.) The inability to disable this feature is a troubling invasion of users' privacy: The feature operates by analyzing every word that users are typing in as they are typing. I,…

  4. Dark Mode Icon

    Certain apps allow us to change the color of the icon like TimePage or GoodTask. I know it may go against Outlook’s main color brand, but a dark mode icon could still be beneficial since it would give users an option to use for their iPhone themes.

  5. Changing colors

    When i press edit to access the delete feature, at the top right corner of the page the “Cancel” button resides. I suggest you change the color of the cancel button from blue to any other color as it is blended so much with the color of the outlook blue theme color.

  6. App Data Storage Issue

    More than a new feature, this is sort of a trouble I am facing. The Outlook app uses a lot of internal storage which is very very huge. It would be better if the app can clear the internal storage internally in regular intervals (like once in a week). The storage used by the emails opened a week ago or so can be cleared automatically. Currently I will have to delete the app and reinstall.

    If this feature is already in place, then I would say Outlook has a very poor data storage management.

  7. Set default browser to system default

    Instead of defining a browser in the Outlook settings, add the option to default to the system default. Outlook doesn’t currently have all modern browsers listed like Brave.

  10. Font needs to be professional

    The current font is not professional. I need my clients and partners to not be distracted by the default font that is shakey-looking and oversized.

  11. Add Splash Screen

    Although the app itself is good. But it takes a while when loading for the first time and shows the blank interface. So it would be good to add a splash screen like the other Microsoft office apps, while the content keeps loading the background. It will please the users.

  13. Privacy

    I was hacked sometime ago. When i login to the mainwebpage of outlook, i was shocked that i didnot need a logincode for the main webpage. Furthermore when i login i found that the button for it seems to be spoilt why doesn’t it stay to have a code. there are also unaccounted devices link to my email meaning all my messages can be seen clearly. Faint. It would be nice if we could check linked device on the app. And please improve the main web email page to require a login code as well on new devices

  17. I am not a big fan of the web interface, and the fact that I am unable to get linked applications to work (I.e. EDRMS systems like eDocs)

    I would like it if the web app had a downloadable component that would allow the N tier application to mirror the functionality of the 3 tier app (Traditional Outlook). Even better would be for all Ntier apps to do a local cache save of documents and metadata to cut down on the bandwidth needed to run the applications.

  18. auth error on one account hides errors on others

    Problem:
    I had an auth error on one account and while I worked to resolve it, my auth to a different account was reset. I didn't get any notifications about this second account, and clicking through to settings and resetting the account did not trigger the re-auth flow for the second account. I just stopped getting new emails.

    Any/all of these Improvements would have helped:
    Show popups for each account having auth issues.
    Show auth errors when clicking to that account
    Trigger re-auth flow if necessary when "Resetting" an account.

  19. iPadOS multitasking

    Outlook, by far the best email client on iOS, needs to have iPadOS specific multitasking features, like multiple instances.

  20. Be able to let iOS autofill passwords from keychain

    I am not able to use iOS autofill passwords from keychain when logging into my account since the login form does not detect the password field as filled and the log in button never activates. Same thing happens when password i pasted into the field.
