  1. 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

    • 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.

          • Customise account icon

            The new navigation pane doesn't allow customisation of the initials in the circle. With multiple accounts in outlook it's impossible to tell them apart.
            Let users set a custom account avatar.

              • 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

                      • Default Reply setting

                        The current default to Reply All emails is counterintuitive and time consuming to work around. Please add a mail setting to make the default reply behavior only Reply and not Reply All. If you have any concept of decency, you’ll also default the setting to Reply, but that doesn’t really matter to me.

                                      Hi there,

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

                                      There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.

                                      1. Delete button in reading view.

                                      Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.

                                      2. Swipe to delete.

                                      Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.
