  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. Splash Screen or Fast & Smooth Animation

    Please make the animations while opening the application and during the loading period more faster and smoother.

    Currently when a user opens the outlook app, at first the blue header along with the white/blank space is shown. After few seconds the blue header/title bar increases or decreases its size (based on Focused Inbox ON/OFF). After few seconds email/conversations will load. This is unpleasant and the consistency and smoothness is very poor.

    Showing a splash screen (Outlook icon with white background) when the user opens the app would solve this inconsistency and unpleasant appearance. Splash screen can hide the current slow…

  6. 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.

  7. iPadOS multitasking

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

  8. Support Siri Shortcuts

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

    This would be really great.

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Continue support for older iOS versions

    Very recently, Microsoft updated their Outlook application to only support iOS devices running iOS 11 or higher. This phase out of iOS 10 support should be deemed unnecessary to the future of the Outlook application. For some time, it was possible to continue using Outlook on older application versions without issues until users were blocked from refreshing the application unless they updated to the newest version. There is no great point to this decision and only prevents the experience people want to continue to enjoy having. Either the minimum application install requirement should revert back to iOS 10 or the…
