  1. Bring back search field at top of inbox

    Please let me search my inbox from a search field at the top of my inbox, instead of having to click the separate magnifying glass icon at the bottom, which is less efficient.

      Please update so it can support iPhone X!
      The default app is horrible compared to outlook and I can’t live without it!

      Thank you for the incredible job on this app by the way!

        Good news everyone! This has been implemented and you should be able to enjoy full functionality of Outlook for iOS on this device. Feel free to let us know how it’s working for you, and remember you can find help in the app at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support. Thank you!

      • Classic view setting?

        Can you guys offer a classic view for the outlook app? This new view is counterintuitive and 'focused' doesn't work. I want to see all my messages in inbox, not focused or other.

        Thanks,

        John

            Hi Outlook users,

            We’re excited to announce that the Outlook on iOS application now supports shared calendars for Office365 and Outlook.com users!

            If you already have a shared calendar, you’ll need to upgrade it so that it syncs to your mobile phone. It’s simple to do though: just ask the calendar owner to re-share the calendar to you, and then click the Accept button in the Outlook app. After accepting, you’ll be able to see the shared calendar on your mobile phone!

            This feature is only available if both the calendar owner & the sharing recipient are hosted in Office365 or Outlook.com. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to the in-app support team by going to Settings > Help & Feedback> Contact Support and we’d be happy to help!

            All the best
            The Outlook Mobile Team

                            "Action required to sync email", Microsoft recommends Outlook for for iOS

                            The link "Continue using this email app" doesn't work and links to an non-existent web page. Please fix this.

                                  • iphone outllook app does not work

                                    Make outlook work on my phone! For months now, I have been regularly deleting and re-installing the Outlook App for the iPhone 6S. I have the most recent version of the app from the app store and also the most recent IOS. My outlook keeps crashing. I can get work emails from the native iphone email app just fine, but the Outlook app just does not work. It constantly says it is syncing emails, and then just crashes. The few times it does work, it crashes after a few minutes no matter what I do. It doesn't even save drafts…
