  2. Notes!

    Please implement Notes syncing and access with Outlook!

    This is a huge feature that’s not available.

  4. Remove delete permanently prompt

    This should have a toggle to remove the prompt. The prompt isn’t provided on webmail, should have the option.

  5. Colour code accounts

    I notice with the new update, you have the title of the folder up top with a large solid lock of blue.

    Instead of being blue for all accounts, you should allow users to set a colour attributed with each of their accounts and this is reflected with a colour change up top as well.

  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. Categories on iOS

    I use at least 13 different categories for my super-complicated schedule, and since the iOS app clips text on calendar events I rely on categories to quickly know which type of event I’m looking at. As it is now, I have to tap on each event to see what it’s about. On the Mac Outlook app, categories work great, and my admin puts in time making sure events are categorized properly. However, I’m usually not in front of my laptop, and so would greatly benefit from seeing categories on the iOS app and the Watch app.

  9. A little more rich text formatting, please

    The product is progressing well, but it’s remarkable to me that there isn’t a little more rich text formatting capability like simple bulleted or numbered lists. That would give email composition some of the features of typical desktop applications, which would be helpful for those of us trying to use the iPad as a computer.

  10. 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.

  11. Add to rules in app

    I auto filter certain emails recipients to folders through rules to streamline my inbox, so it would be great if thru the app you can update rules. I often want to add or update a rule which it seems you can’t do.

  13. Time zone support

    One major issue holding me back from using Outlook Calendar full on is the missing time zone support - in IOS native calendar it’s easy to search for a country or city and select time zone. Please please please

  15. Attach multiple photos

    I have to go back and select each photo individually to emails. This takes a lot of time and looking through photos.

    I prefer how it was using the provided Mail APP via Apple Software where you can select multiple photos and then hit “attach” when sending an email.

  16. Sync with iOS calendar

    I’ve always had a Hotmail account. When I would accept an event, it would show up on my iOS calendar that came with iPhone. Since I downloaded your app, things are easier, BUT half of my calendar items are on iOS and and all accepted email events now show up on outlooks calendar. I don’t like yours and am used to iOS.

    Hi,

    It would be really good if we have email preview setting for inbox where we can chose to show single line or 2 lines along with subject,
    Kindly request to include this option in future releases

  19. Font style and size

    Hi Team,

    I had already raised this once. It would really nice to have an option to choose the font style and size for the email body. This option is available in MS Outlook desktop version.

    Presently, the emails go out in various fonts- times new roman (12). Calibri (12) etc.

    Request you to consider introducing this option at the earliest.

  20. iPadOS multitasking

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