Support for Apple iCloud contacts
Clifton Lemon commented
I just found a workaround to sync contacts and email from Contacts Plus with Outlook on Mac. I'm not sure whether this works with iCloud, but it might.
I went into Contacts Plus app on the web and selected sync with outlook. Then I set up my email in Outlook
First I created a new outlook.com account to import Contacts Plus contacts, which worked fine. Then I added another IMAP account to serve my email from my email provider, Zoho. So far seems to work OK.
That's my reason NOT for Office365 on Mac.
Why is it not possible to synchronize calendar and contacts with iCloud. is Microsoft too small for that or too large ?????
It would be **** handy if she got this done. Like a good explanation why not ?!

MS Outlook is the one and only S/W, ironically, that can send appropriate attached files with Korean filenames.
In Korea, most iPone users manage their Contact list with a third party SW, so called REMEMBER(taking a picture of a name card puts the information into the Contact list by kinds of pattern recognition). Nobody type in the names and phone numbers manually in Korea.
Syncing between the Contact and Outlook is one of the most crucial User Experiences : )
This issue is open since 2017.
Thats typical Microsoft. You do not care about your customers.
I don't believe we will ever see iCal / Contacts sync in Mac Outlook ever. Thanks for nothing.
Fully agree with the former comments. No need to repeat arguments, just to say that I could not believe it was not possible to sync contacts and calendar. I tried by every means I could think of, before even considering the possibility.
how is this not possible? Syncing mac contacts and entourage was easy. Now I can't. It makes Outlook a useless mail client on a mac...This is nonsense. This should be as high a priority as a software patch for a vulnerability. The fact that these comments date back two years, just means MS doesn't care. FULL STOP.
I am a new subscriber to Office 365, and working in the Apple/Mac environment. I am disappointed to learn that I cannot use my 2,000+ iCloud contacts as my default address book in Office 365. I hope you will prioritize this. Thank you

Please prioritise the integration of iCloud with Outlook, we need 1 place for contacts, calendar and emails.

Outlook is really one of the best Mailclients I know - and I like it. But to have no access to iCloud contacts makes it finally unusable!
Access to iCloud contacts is really a MUST!
Please make it possible
If there were, I would use Outlook on the Mac. Very serious that there is not, also because in Windows there is. Closing the SW to the collaboration between them is not a winning move.
Jan Reher commented
Embarrassing that this does not exist. Only reason I still don't use outlook on my Mac is that I can't sync my contacts... which is very sad because the rest of the software is very nice. But seriously, who wants to keep two separate address books these days?!
How is it possible that this is not already enabled?
This is absurd! Can't import something as simple as a csv file??? Madness! They just want to be difficult, customers be damned,

Please, please, please prioritise the integration of iCloud with Outlook -- namely contacts and calendars. It has been *decades*, not merely years, that has been a source of consternation ... Like other Mac hardware users I don't intend switching but would appreciate the chance to take full advantage of the software from Microsoft - given we pay as much as any PC user but still lack the convenience and functionality that should be there.

It's imperative that if you allow icloud contacts to be available inside outlook.
I exclusively keep my contacts in icloud in a centralised location, along with my calendars and don't intend to switch

I would like to use iMessage on my Mac and see not just the senders' phone numbers but also their names from my Outlook Contacts. Just like I do on my iPhone. It would be nice if Microsoft and Apple could figure out a way to ensure this. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Dear, I am a Mac user and it seems to me very complete the microsoft mail client, unfortunately it does not synchronize icluod contacts. I am very sure that if that option comes back you would make outlook for mac the best of all. PLEASE TAKE CARE IN THIS OPTION ..!
This used to work under Office for Mac 2016. I just added my icloud email address and password and it would bring up my contacts. Since updating to Office 356 (Mac), theres nothing... just recently used contacts.

Microsoft, this has been LONG over due. You need to include functionality for Outlook for Mac 2016/365 (and beyond) to use iCloud contacts and iCloud calendar.
This is beyond absurd that in 2019 Mac users cannot simply enter a contact in their iCloud contacts (so that it is available on all their devices) and have it show up in Outlook so they can use Outlook for their email and calendar. Enough of the lame excuses, everything is integrating these days and it is 2019 and has been an issue for years. This needs to be addressed now!
