  1. Put the categories back in sidebar!

    Put the categories back in the sidebar! Why on earth would you take that feature away? Now I can't view contacts or calendar by category, rendering the categories essentially useless.

  6. Add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Please add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Having to enable "On My Computer folders" and store them locally is disappointing.

    Thank you.

  8. group contacts import/export -- by address or "alias" field

    I know you have another idea under review ("Import and export of contacts"), but I'd like to define it a little better. What I need to do is import a list of either by "alias" (userID in our AD) or email addresses and have Outlook recognize them from the directory listing, so the names, addresses, and aliases (userID's) are populated and shown.

    Also, please fix the sorting function. By address OR name, it lists based on caps first, then lowercase -- annoying when having to compare a large list that is sorted alphabetically regardless of capitalization. Thanks!

  10. Offer multiple file form options for outputting contacts

    Offering the option to export contacts in a CSV or delimited tab formats allows for easier exchange with Apple's mac mail, and offers an incentive for Mac users to fluidly use Outlook for Mac.

  13. Have a look at this bug ...

    There is a bug in Outlook for Mac that shows incorrect user profile pictures for other internal exchange accounts at the start of a message. While it's given us a god laugh in the office here, it seems like a bit of an issue.

  14. Customers register

    Hi.. I have a productive suggestion. When we register a contact in the Outlook database, that contact should go directly to the Outlook Customer Manager contacts. That way, we avoid double-enrollment of these clients.

  16. People application: IMPORT and DELETE/DELETE ALL in batch operations needs revisiting. Very slow response times and functionality needs help

    IMPORT and DELETE/DELETE ALL in batch operations needs revisiting. Very slow response times and functionality needs help. Not user-friendly. Using Giga WiFi and Chrome. Functionality doesn't look improved over old Hotmail. Needs significant improvement with design.
