  1. Contact Adjustments

    In contacts, be able to see when you last contacted that person. And be able to quick edit contacts in the list view without having to open the whole card. Rename the sections that underline contacts.

  4. Allow Delegates to add new contacts to their delegaters contact list

    Allow Delegates to add new contacts to their delegaters contact list, so when I am using ScanSnap for Macs I can send my bosses contacts straight to his contacts on Outlook instead of mine

  5. Improve Search Feature

    I have a hard time finding contacts when using the search feature. Most of my searches turn up "no match found" but they are in my contacts. It's very frustrating to have to work so hard to pull up a contact.

  6. Re: Outlook using WRONG Display Name on outgoing emails.

    Outlook is making the assumption that I want my name attached to all my emails. It's attaching the wrong display name to all my outgoing emails.

    Its showing "John Doe <sales@abccompany.com>".

    But I specifically set it to show "ABC Company <sales@abccompany.com>".

    If I set the Display Name of my email account to ABC Company then all my emails should be from ABC Company. However, Outlook 2016 mac (version 16.10 - 180210) is creating a new "Me" profile in my Contacts and saying all my company emails are from me or John Doe instead. This is very…

  12. Possibility of changing the display name of a contact. currently it is saved as they decided, not as saved in my contact list.

    Eg a contact has his display name as Macbook but in my contacts it is John Doe. So in inbox currently it shows as Macbook.

  13. Make vCard sharing with Apple Mac Contacts Drag and Drop

    I would like to be able to drag a vCard (vcf) to and from Apple's Contact's program. at this point it can only be done indirectly by saving to the desktop and then dragging it into Apple Contacts. What a pain. and NO I don't want to synchronize the two directories. I have seen problems with that and DO NOT TRUST Microsoft to not ***** it up. Therefore, I keep the pure data in Apple and copy over person by person to Microsoft

  14. Add manager's and assistant's name

    In outlook for windows, this option is possible. On my samsung phone this is also possible. But in Outlook for Mac, you can only add spouse and children.

  15. Allow the address format to be customised

    The number of subfields in the address field is limited to 4 which is insufficient for UK addresses. The365 function should mirror the behaviour in Outlook for Microsoft at the least

  20. Support Google Global Address

    We use Google Apps for our domain, and I want to use Outlook (for Mac) rather than a browser... but that means while I have access to my personal contacts I don't have the GAL for the domain so if I want to email someone I have to know their email address (or add them to my contacts and sync) ... would be great if Outlook could sync the GAL as well as personal contacts
