  2. 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

  6. Offer multiple file form options for outputting contacts

    Offering the option to export contacts in a CSV or delimited tab formats allows for easier exchange with Apple's mac mail, and offers an incentive for Mac users to fluidly use Outlook for Mac.

  7. I suggest you include the possibility to "open a new tab" for contacts (and calendar), as it is already possible in Outlook for Windows.

    I am having a lot of difficulties managing my contacts on Outlook for Mac. The reason the experience is not good for me is because I cannot “open a new tab” and keep the contacts open (something that can be done in Outlook for windows).

    Therefore I have to rely on third party applications, such as Contacts from Mac OS, which does not handle contacts very well

    I would like to be able to insert contact information for an outlook contact into a word document (typically the information for the recipient of a letter).

  11. Create read/write permissions for Microsoft Groups to manage them better.

    The microsoft groups feature is great, but could use a lot more management. We would like to be able to disallow people from leaving a group as well as manage read vs read/write access to groups.

  14. Fix the bug that doesn't allow you to save a Contact card open from the FROM line unless you make a change to the contact first.

    If you try to save a new contact from the FROM line of an email, clicking SAVE & CLOSE does nothing unless you make a change in the contact.
    The functionality in WIndows Outlook 2016 is "ADD CONTACT" and it looks the same but actually adds a contact when you click the SAVE button.

  15. Add Birthday Without Year

    You should be able to add a person's birthday without having to add their year (as is possible in the native calendar app for Mac). It is very often the case that you know someone's birthday without knowing the year and without needing to know the year, yet it's impossible to add a birthday without having the year, or putting in a random year that's wrong.

  16. Support for Asian name

    Contact Name display issue.
    As an Asian, I prefer to see my contact name as ‘last name’ + ‘first name’. But Outlook does not provide such option neither the option does not work.
    Sometimes I include job title in my contact’s first name. In the case, the contact name is displayed very wierd.

  20. group contacts import/export -- by address or "alias" field

    I know you have another idea under review ("Import and export of contacts"), but I'd like to define it a little better. What I need to do is import a list of either by "alias" (userID in our AD) or email addresses and have Outlook recognize them from the directory listing, so the names, addresses, and aliases (userID's) are populated and shown.

    Also, please fix the sorting function. By address OR name, it lists based on caps first, then lowercase -- annoying when having to compare a large list that is sorted alphabetically regardless of capitalization. Thanks!
