  3. Include email and attachments tabs in Contacts

    Please include email, events and attachments tabs in the People/Contacts list, so that it is possible to have a full view of recent interactions with each contact.

    This feature is already available in the iOS version of Outlook so I figure it shouldnt be too difficult to add the feature to the Outlook for Mac version.

    Thank you.

  4. adding contact

    In previous versions I could add a contact from an email to my local address book by selecting the recipient and adding contact. Not sure if I haven't found it yet, but not as intuitive to add the contact local from an email with this version as it has been in previous versions of the client.

  5. We Need vCards Support in Outlook 2016 for Mac

    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

  6. move suggested contacts feature

    Hi,
    I noticed recently that there is not a way to easily move Suggested Contacts into my regular Contacts, as is the case in Outlook for PC. It would be great to be able to do this.

  10. Fix address book search to _actually_ search all fields.

    With search all fields selected, only names are searched. Typing in a job title does not return ANY results.

    This is a bug.

    Please fix it.

  15. enabling to record academical title or others into Contact Cards / Details (Field Title)

    As on Windows and Webversion it should be possible to record the "academical" Title (not the Company Internal Position/Job Name) into the Contact details.

    f.e. like Mr. Dr. Michael Jefferson

    Thanks

  16. allow email addresses to be imported to create a distribution list

    From Excel or any other spreadsheet so I don't have to enter them 1 by 1! This is so incredibly time consuming.....

  18. Allow contacts to be viewed in business card views

    Be able to view contacts in a business card view. Much easier to search if you can "click" on the letter of the alphabet and jump to that section.

  19. Contacts - Fix the Disaster

    Who ever designed the contacts part in Outlook for Mac, will be punished in his afterlife. So these are some basics that need fixing: 1) Enable copy and paste for more than just one part of the address. What on earth were you thinking? Copy & Paste Zip code, then city, street,...
    2) Make it more intuitive to allow for copying full contact (clone). I mean these are standard scenarios - you copy an address from email and create a new contact. You have several business contacts from the same company and just need to change parts of it in…

  20. Merging contacts is not a feature yet in Outlook for Mac...

    Sorry, merging contacts is not a feature yet in Outlook for Mac unlike the Windows version which has the function already. For now, you can only manually remove them in the app. This would be a nice add-on thought and I encourage you to request this feature to our Dev team via the UserVoice channel. -> https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac

    Thank you and please let me know if you have other questions or are we good to archive this already?
