  2. 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.

  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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    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

  11. Review UX impact in real world first - then release

    Not convinced about that change you just made to pop-up context when hovering over a person in the to/from list. This used to work ok with a micro-view of the phone numbers and E-Mail, including name and title. That is now all or partially gone, and what replaces it only pops up randomly. Very 'fiddly' to handle / unresponsive. UX downgrade from my perspective, not an improvement.

  12. 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!!

  14. add the notes field from iPhone to the contacts

    notes in iPhone contain important information, at least for me. It would help if that tab/field was included in the columns available for display in outlook

  15. provide the ability to colorize contacts by email account

    if you have multiple email addresses, it would be helpful to be able to colorize the contacts so you know which one is from which email account.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
