  3. Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf to an email to forward contacts to others.

    Make it MUCH easier to add a vcf/vCard to an email in order to forward contacts to a colleague. Now I have to individually find the contact, forward it, grab the attached vcf, and add it to my email of vcfs to my colleague. Really clumsy.

  4. Automatic Reminders to buy Birthday or Anniversary Presents

    Outlook should allow for automatic reminders to buy birthday or anniversary presents based on the personal information entered in someone's contact. Currently you get a reminder the same day as the event which is not very helpful when you have to purchase a present for someone.

  5. Link Contacts to a central Address

    Link Contacts to a single, central Address, as Windows can, then when a business where I have dozens of separate Contacts moves, I can update a single Address and get on with living life

  8. UNITED KINGDOM: County Field for Address

    I'm from the UK and I use Microsoft Exchange in my Outlook For Mac.

    UK addresses have 'County' i.e. Hertfordshire, Cornwall, Essex etc. This is the equivalent of a State in USA.

    In Outlook for Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Apple Contacts, Old versions of Outlook for Mac, Google Contacts etc. this field exists as it's essential.

    Outlook for Mac is the only place not to, so I presume it's an oversight?

  9. 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

  11. Use created contact’s names in your inbox, to makes it easier to navigate

    My inbox is currently as mix of different email addresses, or names that users have given themselves. I had hoped that the names that you see in your inbox could be those that you have assigned to certain email addresses within your contacts - so it is as if you were checking your text messages on your phone.

  14. Outlook Contacts Addressable by FaceTime and iMessage

    The simplest way would be to make the contacts from Outlook into a clickable option on Internet Accounts > Hotmail/Exchange accounts. For instance, in Settings > Internet Accounts, a Gmail account has Mail/Contacts/Calendars/Notes as clickable options. If a Gmail user clicks the contacts box, then their Gmail contacts show up in Apple's Contacts app, and their Gmail contacts can be used with FaceTime and iMessage. However, my Hotmail account only has Mail/Notes as options. Please add contacts to the list of possible account integrations. This will open up FaceTime and iMessage. Yeah, yeah, I use Skype, I know. Try getting…

  18. Allow Modifications To How Contacts and Groups are listed

    Would be nice to select what shows up on the second line below the contact. Right now it's a phone # or title (if phone # isn't entered). I'd prefer for it to list who they work for (or offer up a choice).

    Second, in the group list, it only shows the names and emails in the group. Why not include their business, phone number or some other quick to obtain info about who is in the group?

  19. Edit groups in Outlook for Mac.

    This is basic 101. And a big WTF. Are you serious microsoft - it is NOT 1984. Please enable editing of groups in Mac for Ouitlook.
    WTF do I even have to ask for this? This is just pure laziness! Even Trump would have enabled this function and he is a walking zombie.

  20. Unlock address field when using Google email account

    When you setup your email account as Google account you are unable to add an address to a new contacts (address field is locked).

    However to add address to contacts, as a workaround, you can login to the webmail and add/ modify the contact which will then synchronize to Outlook.

    In my opinion this functionality needs to be enabled urgently in Outlook for Mac.
