Keep your place when changing orientation
If i'm reading a newsletter and the phone gets turned slightly switching to landscape mode I will end up back at the top of the newsletter. I find this very irritating. There seems to be a similar feature that was marked completed but it is not.
When working on my phone and switching between apps, it’s very annoying that the email closes and goes back to the folder I was in. To open the email again I have to find it, open it then reopen the attachment.
Please revert back to the place in the email where it was left when clicking a link to safari. When reading a newsletter, it would be helpful to click the link, read the article, and then return to the same place where we left off in the email.

When screen orientation changes, Outlook on iOS loses your place in the email so you have to scroll back and forth to get back to where you were reading.
When clicking links in emails (which most often happens when reading newsletters) the scrolling position is lost, which leads to a terrible experience.
This sometimes happens when changing focus to another application, which Is equally annoying.
When I (accidentally or intentionally) turn my iPhone from portrait to landscape or vice versa during reading a mail, Outlook always jumps back to the top of the mail. This annoys me, especially when reading longer mails, e.g. from newsletters. It would be much better, if Outlook would keep the position, at least approximately.
If I've navigated to a future date in portrait mode of the calendar, then switch to landscape mode, the date reverts back to the current date. Furthermore, in landscape mode, I have no way to easily navigate to a future date (other than swiping endlessly).
Keep the selected date when switching orientation, and give options for selecting a specific date when in landscape mode.

This. It happens to me all the time on accident, and is really annoying for newsletters

When reading a long email and in the middle of reading it (after having scrolled down) and switching to landscape mode either intentionally or unintentionally the reading focus switches to the beginning of the email. This prevents continue reading as you have to scroll down to the point where you were when switching modes. This is a usability issue. In iOS native email app the focus of the reading is maintained when switching between portrait and landscape mode. Hope you can implement this in outlook for iOS as well!

Love the app, but you should make it better at not losing my place in long emails when I switch to horizontal or vertical orientation or leave the app momentarily. I use iPhone and iPad.
