  4. Remove cancelled meetings in calendar

    Currently it does not seem possible to remove events that have been cancelled by the meeting host. The update arrives in the mailbox but does not have an option to delete from calendar.

  5. Improved iCloud Calendar Support

    Currently Outlook will only show iCloud calendars available on iCloud.com. It does not display subscribed calendars (such as work calendars, school calendars, etc), even if they are synced via iCloud to Macs, iOS devices, etc. The native iOS calendar app DOES show these calendars, as do other 3rd party calendar apps such as Fantastical. Please fix this.

  6. Mark as Not Spam

    Some spam filters create false positives. Create a feature to mark email from a sender or the sender's domain as Not Spam so thereafter it lands in the Inbox instead of Bulk Mail.

  7. Alias Support

    If a user has 5 alias on their outlook.com account. They should be able to send from any one of these on their iPhone. Currently you can only send from your Primary email.

  8. Move email between different email account folders

    I would really like to be able to move my emails from one account folder to another. Currently i can only move an email between folders within the same account. For the people who have multiple accounts linked to the phone is pretty handy. This feature is supported in Apple's mail app.

  10. Message Preview Options - Notification Screen

    Add a toggle that allows notifications which contain only the name of the email sender rather than a preview of the entire message similar to the approach used by the native Mail app and or Facebook Messenger. This prevents potentially sensitive information from being exposed to anyone within view of a phone sitting on a coffee table, etc.

  11. Custom Notifications

    It would be nice to be able to control what types of items create notification banners/alerts. For example I only want to see calendar reminders but not an alert for new emails.

  12. Support the new Siri command "Remind me about this"

    Not sure if it's available to 3rd party apps, but the new Siri command in iOS 9 of 'Remind me about this' would be helpful. It basically takes what you're looking at on screen and creates a reminder for you.

  13. Create Calendar Event from Email

    It would be nice if you could create a Calendar Event from an Email, similar to dropping an email on the calendar in Outlook for Windows.

    The Calendar Event would just need the Subject and body from the source email.

    It could in the action menu, i.e. "Schedule, Move to Focused Inbox, Move, Mark Unread, CREATE EVENT"

  14. Support Gmail Labels

    As a heavy user of Gmail labels, is this the most important feature that I want, to make Outlook for iOS my default mail app.
    Now you can only move a message to a folder.

  16. Managing mail threads

    The current system for managing the mails thread is not productive. Basically the app treats the whole conversation as one, and makes it difficult to pick and manage a single email in the middle of the conversation (be it for deleting, mark, or flag).
    Opening the thread marks every mail as read. And then is painful to go to whatever email is lost in the middle the conversation.
    Ability to expand a thread without opening any email. I should be able to see all the email records in the thread without having to open the thread itself.

    There are plenty…

  18. Attach files from other applications

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to attach files from other applications (at least other Microsoft apps) to an email. It is very inconvenient to have to transfer a spreadsheet or word document to Dropbox and then attach it to an email thread in order to save the integrity of the thread.

  19. Remember Last 'Move Mail' Folder

    When moving/filing lots of emails it can be a pain to have to scroll from the top of the folder structure every time rather than remember the last folder an email was moved to.

    This is how it behaves in native iPhone Mail client and full blown Outlook when moving emails from Inbox
