  2. Confirmation for dialing phone numbers

    I received an email with order confirmation from an online shop. The order number was underlined. Thinking it was a link to order details I tapped it and Outlook switched to phone dialing immediately. Luckily it was not a valid number so I could quickly cancel the call. I don't like that the call attempt was made without any confirmation. Please add a confirmation like it's done in other apps, or at least distinguish automatically added links somehow so I know if I want to tap it.

  4. Flip from making an appointment to email view

    Sometimes in the midst of making an appointment I need to refer back to an email but can't see a method of doing that without saving the appointment first.

  5. Show rooms from Exchange server room lists

    When setting up meetings in Outlook for iOS, the 'Location' box doesn't allow me to select the rooms available to me in the desktop app. The room lists are provided by the exchange server I'm connected to.

    I originally posted a support request for this and was told to suggest it as a feature by Microsoft Support.

  7. Default to today when choosing time in schedule

    It seems a such a hassle to find today during choosing time at schedule.
    Also it seems i can schedule to past which should be avoided
    I have to scroll very long time for some reason.
    It defaults to some strange day which do not make any sense.

  9. HTML Emails

    It would be great if HTML functionality can be enabled in outlook instead of sending emails in text, this would provide a complete mobile work experience

  10. Date time information is not on lock screen notifications

    Lock screen or watch notification of calendar events does not include date time info, which is quite annoying to have to open the app.

  15. Add support for third party applications

    I use an application called Shift Worker which allows you to email a shift database as an attachment, however I can't open the attachment in Shift Worker as this application is not supported currently by Outlook, however it is by Apple Mail.

    It would be a great feature to be able to select any installed application on the device and then remember this so it's seamless - just like the default mail application that comes with iOS.

  16. Rules Setting

    The ability to see rules and create rules for an entire domain. I frequently have emails from users within my domain that make it into the non-focused inbox.

    I would like a way of forcing all emails from my users into my focused inbox.

  19. @ tag someone and be able to delete part of the name

    My organisation used surname,firstname in Active Directory. As such when I take someone on the iOS app, I just get the surname. Unlike on desktop I cannot delete part of the name to just show the first name as it is never displayed. Just keep the desktop functionality!
