  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. iPadOS multitasking

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Outlook iPhone mobile app signature box doesn’t have the option to format the text.

    Outlook iPhone mobile app signature box doesn’t have the option to format the text. In general our signature carry our mail if and website address. It has to be shown as a link and highlighted. But signature part is accepting plain text. Please bring this feature in the mobile app version

  14. Very awkward and non-intuitive interface

    Very awkward and non-intuitive interface, especially with multiple mail accounts. More like a Beta than an actual release.

  16. Allow a separate instance of Outlook for personal email.

    Our company uses o365 and using Outlook on iOS is awesome. However, it would be great to have the ability to use a separate instance of Outlook for my three personal emails.


    1. It would allow for a unified inbox of my personal emails without intermingling my work emails and calendars.


    2. Won’t force me to use other inferior mail apps to keep things seperate.


    Thanks!
    Happy Outlook user

  17. We need continuity/feature parity across platforms

    There needs to be some sort of feature parity across platforms. Critical features like RULES should be consistent regardless of the device. There is one version of rules for the Web, a different one for Windows clients, none on macOS or iOS. The few places where rules are available, the rules behavior isn’t consistent. For instance CATEGORIES causes server side rules to break if done from Windows, but if done from the Web, they work. However, if done from the Web, I lose other rule conditions/actions.

    This is just one area. This should be across the board! Feature roll outs…

  18. Server connection status

    Add a status notice that at least shows when Outlook cannot connect to a server, or even better, actively shows the connection and activity status.

  19. Please fix the "edit favorites" icon

    At first, I thought there was no way to edit my Favorites in Outlook for iOS. However, I eventually noticed a pencil icon to the right of the Favorites header. Unfortunately, the icon is dark gray on a dark background. Please make the icon white in dark mode, or at least a lighter shade of gray, and perhaps slightly larger as well. Thanks.

  20. Open links in Brave browser

    Please can you add the ability to open links on brave browser? You added Firefox, and iOS can even have brave as default for iOS but ourlook doesn’t allow brave.
    Please add this!
