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.
We are renaming this post to focus on “Import and export of contacts” in Outlook. For MBOX and PST formats, please vote for separate posts.
One would think the inclusion of this functionality would be common sense.
This is a freakin' basic function - especially during these times when we work from multiple places using multiple platforms and devices.
Exporting contacts to a CSV file should be a top priority, can't believe it hasn't been done already!
Especially during home office times where your personal PC is now your office PC, having all the contacts is essential.
I acknowledge that a export feature is available, but it does not fulfil it's use when I cannot import it into iCloud.
Please address this issue

Do the sample of cvs file provided by microsoft work in there for anyone?
I try to prepare some documentation for the team to help them softly switch to office 365. Would be helpful to know if it just doesn't work on mac or if I need to spend more time finding a solution.
Clearly not a trivial thing for you to do if you have not responded to all these requests after all this time. That said I am about to start using MS Office again and to find you cannot do basic imports of contacts/calendars via a csv is pretty diabolical looks like this will be a very short lived switch.
i like office 365 but if i can´t import/export my contacts to excel it´s useless.
Microsoft just because you are making our life so difficult we will not change to mac Jesus why can you not have an user friendly software

OK, MIGHT SOUND EXTRAORDINARY TO YOU, BUT ALSO ME LIKE TO IMPORT CONTACTS IN GENERIC FORMATS TO OUTLOOK! AND YES, I KNOW, ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY.
It seems so obvious to be able to import/export contacts in Office. It would save hours of work.
calendar appointment and meetings! not just contacts
Not just contacts but also calendar information.
WTF? You cannot export from Outlook to Excel? These are both your products!!!! This is basic functionality. Sorry, this almost borders on negligent! I am so disappointed. I am paying a monthly subscription and cannot do this basic thing.
import export via CSV s a must
Look when first vote was posted- 2015! Expect no movement from MS.
