  1. 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.

            • Attach files from iCloud Drive

              Please add the option to add files from iCloud Drive, currently Dropbox, Google Drive and recent attachments are there but not iCloud which is frustrating.

                      • Bring back easy flag option

                        Before the recent UI update (which is awesome), the flag option was immediately visible in the top right. The new UI buries it in a menu. I used it almost constantly, and would love to see it not hidden. Just a thought :)

                          For those who have a lot of orders in the account it would really help if you could make the folder structure collapsable. Cheers

                          • Shared calendar for Office 365 users.

                            Our organization uses OWA because it has the shared calendars of the agency.
                            Can you please add this feature as it works in the O365 system ?
                            Thanks

                              • Calendar colors

                                I am a big fan of OWA for IOS. I’m sorry to see an end of Life announced for OWA.

                                OWA’s calendar respects the event colors that are in the PC version of outlook. I find this very useful and that is why I prefer OWA for IOS vs Outlook for IOS.

                                Will Outlook for IOS be enhanced to respect the calendar event colors from PC Outlook?

                                Thanks in advance,

                                Chris Keller

                                  • Separate Search Function for Calendar

                                    When searching in the app only email results are shown. When you are in the calendar function you should be able to search for key words generating a list. Since the calendar is hard to view on-the-go being able to search it by keyword rather than scrolling through would be more efficient

                                          Hi there,

                                          Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

                                          3. Bulk delete.

                                          This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it.
