  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Outlook Directory Search

    When using the search function of the Outlook address book (not the general Outlook search) there are no results found when a search is being initiated based upon the last part of a last name.

    Example: When trying to look for a person called Armin van Buuren, it is impossible to find this person when “Buuren” is being used as the search query. It only works when using “van Buuren”.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Make Contacts' pane consistent with Windows

    Currently, in the Mac version the People pane (contacts) is extremely confusing, in comparison with the Windows' version. Why the labels are repeated in each category?
    If i was visually consistent in the two O.S. (with Windows 10 as reference, of course), it would be much better.

  16. Correct USA phone and address formats

    Correct default USA address format - there should not be a space after City and before the comma. Also add a Street 32 field. Finally, add a phone number format selection: +1 (234) 567-8901.

  17. Outlook Contacts Addressable by FaceTime and iMessage

    The simplest way would be to make the contacts from Outlook into a clickable option on Internet Accounts > Hotmail/Exchange accounts. For instance, in Settings > Internet Accounts, a Gmail account has Mail/Contacts/Calendars/Notes as clickable options. If a Gmail user clicks the contacts box, then their Gmail contacts show up in Apple's Contacts app, and their Gmail contacts can be used with FaceTime and iMessage. However, my Hotmail account only has Mail/Notes as options. Please add contacts to the list of possible account integrations. This will open up FaceTime and iMessage. Yeah, yeah, I use Skype, I know. Try getting…

  18. Export vCards

    In addition to forwarding a vCard in an e-mail, please include simply exporting a vCard to somewhere on the compute. It's annoying to have to create an e-mail, drag the attached vCard to my computer, then cancel the e-mail. It looks unprofessional to have to use that workaround.

    I would like to see the capability to be able to import and manage vCards in Outlook 2016 for Mac, as it is offered in the Windows version of the product. I use both versions on a daily basis and it is really difficult to use in the Mac version

  20. Add skype, telegram, wechat etc contacts

    add skype, telegram, wechat etc to outlook contacts. Outlook contacts is from the 1990's -it only has phone and email. Do none of the outlook developers use skype for example? I am amazed no one has thought of adding this. We only use skype, wechat and telegram. We have no email addresses, and no telephones in our organisations. AS such, outlook doesn't support us. We have to put the skype address etc. into "notes". We need a field for this. Currently, it only has "IM address" which is of no use because it doesnt say which IM - there are…
