  1. Keep position in email when switching apps

    I read a fair amount of email newsletters. The issue is that when I click a link in one of them (and thus go to my browser), and then return to Outlook to continue reading the newsletter, the position in the email is not retained. I.e. I am at the top of the email again. It would be super handy if the position in an open email was kept when switching between apps.

  3. 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.

  4. Delay Delivery:Schedule Emails

    Please bring this option to mobile.

    I don’t like to message people out of office hours. Scheduling an email ahead of time is helpful and allows to respond/write something when the moment strikes.

  6. Play emails via audio, but don’t require microphone access

    I’d like to play my emails via audio, but when I try to activate this Outlook requests access to my microphone. Outlook doesn’t need access to my microphone to play emails. If it does, it shouldn’t

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Email signature from PC app to be exact or synced with that of the outlook app for mobile

    Please allow the syncing of the signature settings and style to match how the PC user arranged sig to be on the Outlook app.

    The Outlook app has a plain way of displaying the sig. No fonts, colors or company image. Please do that for us. Other providers sync the sigs.

  14. Include the Categorize Feature in the mobile app.

    I use the colour coded categories to make sure I don’t miss orders. Please add this feature to the mobile app so that I can keep organised from my phone instead of having to go back and mark everything on my work computer at the end of the day.

    Hi there, 

    Thank you for using Outlook and letting us know about your current experience.

    We are sorry this is happening to you. Please contact us through the Help Section of the app by going to Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support so that we can assist you in the best possible way. 

    We look forward to fixing this for you.

    PS: Please use the Help Section of the app for any questions, we are not able to see replies to this address.

  17. Confirm folder name when moving an email to a folder.

    To be sure that an email was moved to the correct folder it would be good if the folder name would be shown while copying the mail.
    Maybe the app could even suggest folders like the mail function of iOS does.

  18. iOS 14 widget

    Apple already have the jump on outlook by releasing their widget in the beta of iOS14 (which is basically live tiles, wonder who thought of that?!). Yes I know Android have had it forever, well done Apple.
    BUT - let’s make sure Outlook has a mail and calendar widget to match (one you can swipe between the two, and options to add them individually)

  20. Search, “select all”, delete

    Would love to be able to do a search for specific emails from the same source or with the same subject, “select all” within the search, and then delete everything in that search with one click.
