  1. 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.

  3. When I select add sender's email add to my address, I don't see it in my Outlook for MAC contacts.

    Allow me to see my contacts from the Outlook for MAC view. If the ability to do this already exists, it is not user friendly for semi-adept technology users like me.

  4. 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.

  5. Contacts develop a hyperlink when reinstalling the app

    I reinstalled the app and a hyperlink got added on ALL contacts. This was unnecessary and now I have 1000 contacts which need to be edited manually. I contacted customer service. They could understand the reason or the solution!!

    It would be very helpful to be able to see group in left pane and then be able to drag members to that group. This is a feature on PC's but I recently bought a MAC. In order to create a group I need to type in the first few letters of name. Which means I have to toggle back and forth as I can't remember everyone in the group. Much easier to drag members into the group

  7. A setting for choosing the display name syntax for contacts.

    At the moment there isn't a possibility to change the display name. Outlook for MAC has always the syntax "given name" and "surname" but it would be very helpful to change this because it has also an impact to my Outlook for Windows 10.

  9. Auto Trim e-mail addresses when pasted into a contact

    When an e-mail is pasted into the contact field it looks like this: > Outlook should auto trim off each side of the e-mail address so it works in this field.

  10. Contacts disconnect between options in Outlook on Windows, Mac and Web

    Currently there is significant disconnect in the Contacts/People feature between Outlook on Windows, Web and Mac. Standard fields are different on each platform, there is no clear First Name Last Name fields on creation on all platforms. Editing a contact on Mac changes the way it displays on a PC vs Web. E.g editing a suffix on a Mac causes it to drop from the PC version of Outlook.

  11. Can you please add a feature to STOP automatically adding contacts?

    It is really frustrating that my people list continues to be populated by random contact Outlook pulls out of my email. Please create an option to stop this (as is possible with Outlook for Windows).

  12. Make it Easier to Enter E-Mail Addresses

    Many enterprise emails use the format

    firstname.lasname@company.com
    firstnameinitial.lastname@company.com

    Once the name info is entered (and it is usually the first thing one does) Outlook should suggest the email address based on the above formats so that the user can simply pick one or enter a bespoke email address.

  13. Add an option to change the default address book from GAL to Contacts

    I have recently updated our employees addresses in our CRM platform. When checking in outlook shortly after I noticed that I now have 2 contacts cards for each employee. One containing the update and another without the update. I then realized that one is under the GAL directory and the other is under all Contacts that were imported from my CRM. Thus the reason for my request. I know there is a way to do so for PC as explained in this link - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/change-default-address-book-53b3ce7a-9d35-4e27-9e37-57979778fe5b but I could not find an appropriate solution for Mac users.

  15. import wab file

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook for Mac.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.

  17. doubleclick on a VIP to open new message

    I categorize people in purple category as friends. I can just see them when I click on the list. why not to save a step just double click on the name and it automatically opens up a new email with the person's address already entered in the "to" line.
