  1. Allow pasting of an excel or google sheet column of emails into a new contact group!

    Would be AMAZING if we could copy and paste a whole column of email addresses from an excel column or google sheet column right into outlook contact group. It doesn’t let you do that. You have to copy and paste every single one. That is lame. Why can’t we import an email list or paste an emails list right into it? Even better would be in Excel if it recognized that it was a list of emails for the column then one option with right click or export or share or something like that built into excel would be ‘create…

  8. Support searching Address List/GAL by using Advanced Search like Outlook for Windows

    Make searching the Global Address List (GAL) the same on Mac/OWA as in Windows. In Windows you can search for someone in the GAL using their Office, Title or another field.

  10. Address Book

    When you open the address book, the default for the search location is "All Folders," not "Address Book." This results in an empty screen unless you type something for it to search. I want to be able to see my entire address book immediately, so I can just select an entry. This is how it worked in Outlook 2011 for Mac. Please allow me to somehow specify "Address Book" as my default search location instead of "All Folders."

  11. People-free/busy quick lookup

    Ability to hover over a person's name and see their free/busy availability for the current day. This is often needed, but requires creating a meeting to see their availability for the day, and then cancel the meeting afterwards. Use case is to quickly identify when someone is NOT in a meeting, and more likely to be available for a visit or phone call in the next several hours.

  14. Integrate Outlook for Mac with Salesforce.com

    Windows Outlook has the capability to interface with Salesforce.com, allowing for automatic contact updates and other hassle-free features. Outlook 2016 doesn't even allow a CSV file to be uploaded to import new contacts. You have to use Outlook 2011 to upload the CSV file and then wait for everything to sync to your 2016 Outlook. If Salesforce.com integration is not feasible, then at least allow CSV imports for contacts.

  16. New Contact Group - please, please, please.

    I can see the "New Contact Group" in the ribbon, but it is grayed out. Please turn on this functionality. Sure would save a lot of keystrokes.

    Thank you.

  18. Please disable contact photo. This takes so much space on small screens.

    Simply allow switching this option off/on completely like in Windows version. Currently I see initials in a big colour circle, if the photo is not available. This is not needed.

  20. Create a function that makes it possible to save all recipients as contacts.

    Hi! I would like to save all recipients in my sent email folder as contacts. It would be great with a function in Outlook for Mac 2015 who helps me do this. I would like to export all the people I´ve been in contact with so I can import them to other systems.
