  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  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. 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.

  5. iPadOS multitasking

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

  7. 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.

  9. Support Siri Shortcuts

    Please Support the Siri Shortcuts for iOS 12. (e. g. send a mail)

    This would be really great.

  11. Notifications during “Work Hours”

    Allow users to set “work hours” or “work days” during which to receive notifications of new mail or events.

    For example, a user could set “work hours” of 7-5pm M-F and would only receive notifications during those times. All mail or events received outside of those hours would result in a notification only when “work hours” resumed.

  12. Correct buggy copy paste

    At least half the time i need to copy paste text, I’m wasting my own time as it fails to generate context options - I’m constantly saving as draft in the hope the function returns

  13. iPhone badge should show new emails since last read

    I want suggest a feature - Currently, the badge notification number should be programmable. I leave lot of emails marked unread as they are low priority until someone pings me more. So I don’t want to see number of unread emails. But want to see how many new emails arrived since I opened outlook last time.
    This should be programmable a) new emails b) unread emails.
    Actually user should be also able to specify a rule to compute this number.

  14. Play my emails for school accounts

    Please make this important feature available for school accounts. It is perplexing why these accounts are excluded. Thank you!

  17. Open Bing as Default Browser

    I have only 2 options in Outlook for a default browser to open links; Chrome or Safari. Microsoft makes 2 for iOS and I can't choose either one. I use Bing frequently. You should make it an option.

    Thanks,

    Valor

  18. Remove jailbreak detection mechanism

    Starting from version 4.21.0, outlook now integrate jailbreak detection Mechanism. According to logic, it was not really necessary. Jailbreaking a device is a choice of a user, and e-mail client is a preference and liking of user. In such case, why are you wanting to limit your users to only whom those are non-jailbroken? Since jailbreaking is not at all associated or effecting the mailing service on the device, then it shouldn’t be prevention and outlook must remain open to use and enjoy for everyone!

    Yes, if u face difficulty to provide technical support on the jailbroken devices, u can…

  19. Do not disturb

    Be able to set times to not receive email notifications. I have a boss who works in the middle of the night and sends emails. My phone is set to do not disturb so I do not hear alerts but I see the banner preview of the message and it makes me look at them and then I cannot sleep.

  20. Classic look

    Please bring back the old look of Outlook! The Inbox bar is way too thick and blue. The slider button for focused and other is too round and puffy.

    I like the simple, clean and professional look of the previous look.
