  2. Ability to import and export contacts

    Please add the ability to import and export contacts in Outlook for Mac. It'd be great if the formats that one could import and export contacts to were the same as the options on Outlook on Windows. This would make it easy to transition back and forth, particularly for folks who are switching platforms for work.

  5. Support distribution lists for Exchange accounts

    Please add support for contact distribution lists for Exchange accounts. Outlook for Mac does not recognize the distribution lists I have available in Outlook Web App.

  6. Sync Outlook Contacts to Mac Address Book

    Please add the functionality to sync Outlook Contacts to the Mac Address Book. This functionality used to exist in Entourage, but is more important now than ever for compatibility with Intune Conditional Access.

    I know this syncing was removed because Apple deprecated iSync.

    This functionality should ideally support wiping downloaded contacts in the event that Outlook is wiped by MDM.

  7. Enable Server side Distribution List

    Outlook for Windows and Outlook Web Access support locally stored distribution lists. This is not supported by Outlook for Mac even with the new Version. Please add this functionality to be compatible!

  11. Add "New Contact for Same Company" option

    With the PC version, you can create a new contact from an existing one by select something like New Contact for Same Company and it fills in the address and company name so you can just quickly add details for that person.

  12. Put the categories back in sidebar!

    Put the categories back in the sidebar! Why on earth would you take that feature away? Now I can't view contacts or calendar by category, rendering the categories essentially useless.

  14. have the ability to disable autocomplete feature for email as it's remembering emails for all emails received even junk mail, don't need it.

    Have the option to remove auto complete for emails. It's remembering all email addresses of emails received and sent and no need to have junk mail remembered! It's also duplicating email addresses and creating new contact cards even though the contact's email is in their card.

  15. Integrate Outlook Contacts with Linkedin Contacts

    Now that Microsoft owns Linkedin, it would be extremely helpful if Outlook was the primary sync point for all contact information. Within the notes section, place a summary of the positions held from the Linkedin profile. Synchronizing contact information and keeping profile info in one spot would make looking up contacts with specific skills, job titles, backgrounds, companies, etc much easier. Plus, making it perform the sync in the background would help keep contacts fresh.

  16. Sync contacts across Outlook instances - Mac and Windows

    Sync contacts across Outlook instances - Mac and Windows. I am not able to have my contacts sync across latest versions of Office365 Home, OfficeOnline, Office Windows and Office Mac (15.x). Curiously, iOS Outlook does sync.

  17. Make Outlook for Mac Contacts much more like Windows

    Suggest Outlook Contact section look a lot more like that of Outlook for Windows. It was a big disappointment to move to the Mac.

  18. Support CardDAV (not just Google but all CardDav servers)

    Add support to allow Outlook address book to sync with a CardDAV server. Eg. I have a CardDAV server on my Synology NAS. Mac Contacts can connect to it but Outlook for Mac can not.

  20. Make initials icon color editable

    Currently the circular icons with initials of your contacts are randomly assigned a colour. It would be useful if the colours could be assigned by the user so that e.g. Bob Scott who works for Yellow Cabs is yellow and Bill Smith who works for Brown's Brewery is brown, and not randomly the opposite or some other irrelevant colour. That way you could associate the right BS with the right person or company.
