  3. Open next message after deleting the current message

    When viewing a message and when you click the trash button, it brings you back to your list of messages. I would rather have it open the next message.

  4. Categories/colour calendar events

    It would be ideal to see calendar events as colours, like you’re able in the full version

  5. View shared calendar

    I’d like to be able to view a shared calendar on my phone. My co workers and I can’t access our team calendar on our outlook app via iPhone. It’s very frustrating

  6. Sync contact photos to iOS contacts

    I have contact photos in Outlook on iOS and I sync my contacts to my device, however the photos do not sync. If you add photos in the native contacts app they are removed when Outlook syncs the contacts on each load.

  7. Show the date when scrolling down emails

    When scrolling back/down through emails in side panel it is unclear what the date is. Just showing the day of a the week is not helpful.

  8. Recalling and Read notifications

  9. Classic look

    Please bring back the old look of Outlook! The Inbox bar is way too thick and blue. The slider button for focused and other is too round and puffy.

    I like the simple, clean and professional look of the previous look.

  15. Font Choice

    Fonts appear normal on iOS but when read on PC are bold and giant... it looks miserable. Please allow me to choose a font that will be consistent across operating systems.

  17. Swipe Option

    Swipe option should provide multiple options when swiping. For example, current you can choose two options only, left swipe to be.... or right swipe to be.......
    Swipe option should provide more options the way iCloud mail does. It breaks into several options and then you get to choose the one you need at the time. One swipe give you option to either delete, flag, or ‘more options’. Under more options, you can have read, Mark, notify me, reply and so on.
    Outlook should be equipped with the similar swipe option. Thanks.

  20. Notifications during “Work Hours”

    Allow users to set “work hours” or “work days” during which to receive notifications of new mail or events.

    For example, a user could set “work hours” of 7-5pm M-F and would only receive notifications during those times. All mail or events received outside of those hours would result in a notification only when “work hours” resumed.
