  1. 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.

  2. add THE MOST BASIC FUNCTION OF EXPORTING CONTACTS AS CSV

    How have you guys not added the functionality to export Mac Outlook contacts to CSV, this has been requested for years and is function in the Windows version. What is GOING ON with your DEV TEAM? unless this is business politics, the lack of this feature is embarassing

  6. Improve Search Feature

    I have a hard time finding contacts when using the search feature. Most of my searches turn up "no match found" but they are in my contacts. It's very frustrating to have to work so hard to pull up a contact.

  9. Make Outlook for Mac a Professional/Adult Application vs. Kid-version.

    Are there any plans to take Outlook for Mac from kid-version to adult/professional version??? I really need the fields from Exchange for Assistant's Name, Manager's Name, Assistant's email, Assistant's Ph #, And I really don't need zodiac sign, age (really???), blood type. It's bad when you have to use your iPhone to save and look up the Assistant's name. Thank you Apple for sending that field to the iPhone. I do appreciate what has been done to stabilize Outlook for Mac in the past many months.

  10. Add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Please add Contact List (Groups) synchronization with Exchange Server.

    Having to enable "On My Computer folders" and store them locally is disappointing.

    Thank you.

  14. provide the ability to colorize contacts by email account

    if you have multiple email addresses, it would be helpful to be able to colorize the contacts so you know which one is from which email account.

  15. add the notes field from iPhone to the contacts

    notes in iPhone contain important information, at least for me. It would help if that tab/field was included in the columns available for display in outlook

  17. Contacts develop a hyperlink when reinstalling the app

    I reinstalled the app and a hyperlink got added on ALL contacts. This was unnecessary and now I have 1000 contacts which need to be edited manually. I contacted customer service. They could understand the reason or the solution!!

  18. Review UX impact in real world first - then release

    Not convinced about that change you just made to pop-up context when hovering over a person in the to/from list. This used to work ok with a micro-view of the phone numbers and E-Mail, including name and title. That is now all or partially gone, and what replaces it only pops up randomly. Very 'fiddly' to handle / unresponsive. UX downgrade from my perspective, not an improvement.

  19. 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.
