  1. Links out of Outlook on Newsletters

    Since the latest iOS upgrade, anytime you click on a link out of a newsletter, the email resets to the top when you return. This is incredibly annoying when reading long newsletters with multiple links and constantly having to scroll back to where you were.

  3. Auto Populate Calendar Appointment from Previous Appointment

    It would be very helpful for the app to notice previous appointments and auto populate or copy from the previous event that is similar to the new one that is trying to be created?

  4. Please respond to help

    I’ve had a mostly 1-sided conversation with the help center to try to get a calendar feature working properly. Whoever was on the other end responded once; I advised them I’ve already done what they suggested, & I haven’t heard anything back for 24+ hours. I’ve tried to see if anyone is still on the other end of that conversation, but no one is responding & I can’t close out the conversation so I can attempt to start again.
    Please help. Thank you.

  5. Add Google Calendar to search

    As of Jan 2020, only Office 365 and outlook.com calendar items are searchable in the Outlook for iOS app.

    PLEASE add Google Calendar to the calendar providers that can be searched.

  7. IMAP Save as Draft Button

    It take a while to populate all the fields when adding multiple email accounts and if the sign up fails or you move away from the imap screen, you have to start from scratch!

    This feature would save so much time

  10. Persist open email messages on resume

    Often, I have to search for an email (search needs work too) to then reply to it. While composing the reply, I need to leave the app momentarily to check a piece of info, etc. elsewhere on the device. When I then come back into Outlook, my earlier email is saved to drafts, the email I was replying to is buried back in my mailbox, and I cannot resume work quickly and easily. Please optimize this better.

  11. Repeat Unread Email notifications

    I man a call line that is 24/7 but the voicemail a person leaves me is in the form of an email sent to my phone. If I don’t hear the email ding in the middle of the night just once, I’m neglecting a call that could otherwise be important. I’d like a feature where an unread email in the main inbox would repeat sound alerts every few minutes until read.

  12. Contana Playback Calendar RSVP

    I really like Contana play for my messages. When I get the playback of my calendar invites, it would be nice to voice RSVP “Accept, Tentative, Decline”

    Time of the proposed schedule is spoken by Contana

    Would be great if Contana play says “The schedule invite has a conflict” or “There are no other schedule conflicts on your calendar for the proposed time”

  14. Duplicate emails saved in Sent folder when using iOS Mail

    When you setup the iOS Mail app via the Other option and IMAP, it duplicates the sent items on the server. This seems to be because there's a setting to save sent items in the sent folder, while the server does this automatically; so their ends up being two copies. The solution is to add the option to not save in the settings and setup screen.

    Here's a visual explanation: https://www.slipstick.com/outlook/email/two-copies-of-sent-messages/

    This option is available on Windows email clients but not Mac email clients.

  16. 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!

  18. Wrongly designed Reply-box

    Hello,
    The Reply-feature in Outlook sucks big time. Most messaging apps have a bottom-up layout meaning older messages are shown above the newst ones. Thus, it makes sense to add the Reply box at the bottom of the screen.

    However, in Outlook, we deal with emails that have a top-to-bottom structure meaning latest email is shown at the top. Thus, it makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE to put the Reply box at the bottom of the screen and make the email lock to the bottom/end of the email when replying to an email.

    Seriously, who designs your Outlook app?!? Let me…

  19. Incorrect/misleading Sign In prompt

    The outlook app prompts me at the bottom “Please sign in to your xyz@gmail.com” account. On proceeding, the next screen shows an iOS prompt that says: “Outlook” Wants to use “facebook.com” to Sign In

    There are a few problems.
    1. It says please sign in to ...gmail account. There is NO way I would know that is referring to a Facebook account.
    2. That email address is NOT the login ID for my Facebook account

    The prompt is simply wrong from wording as well as from a tech standpoint. A PM would be able to advise the correct phrasing…

  20. MHT viewer

    The desktop version of Outlook is able to “preview” files with the mht file extension, while the iPhone app is not. I would love to see this feature added to the app. With the ability to zoom and pan. You guys rock!
