  1. When I select add sender's email add to my address, I don't see it in my Outlook for MAC contacts.

    Allow me to see my contacts from the Outlook for MAC view. If the ability to do this already exists, it is not user friendly for semi-adept technology users like me.

  4. Whitespaces

    Remove whitespaces from email address in the Address Book (AB). When I send an email to a Contact from AB, if they happen to have white spaces at the end, then they are invalid and the email is not sent. Not a big issue, but annoying

  5. Contacts

    I was wondering if a second ‘mobile’ option in Outlook Contacts could be added ‘work mobile’ as nowadays, most people have a personal mobile and a work mobile.

  7. Please alloc conatcts be synced to People in Mac Outlook

    Hi,

    I have become part of Insider Fast. This should have allowed me to sync my contacts from my email id {backed by Google} and it should have appeared in my Outlook for Apple Mac. However this is not happening.

    How do it do it. I have followed all steps as per the below link

    https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2017/03/01/outlook-2016-for-mac-adds-support-for-google-calendar-and-contacts/

    Kindly help . Its frustrating to not see the contacts in the address book and be able to use them

    Please xtend this to Volume licensing users just as you may have extended it to Office 365 users. Why differentiate if they all of…

  9. Add the ability to hide outlook groups/ Place groups in a separate tab.

    Outlook Groups that you are in automatically show up in the Mail Tab, without the ability to disable them. Adding that ability or adding a separate Groups tab would be helpful for those that need to simplify the veiw for email.

  10. Sync Outlook Address Book on different devices

    Very limiting not to have access on my laptop to contacts entered on my desktop and viceversa. They should synchronise automatically.

  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.

  12. UNITED KINGDOM: County Field for Address

    I'm from the UK and I use Microsoft Exchange in my Outlook For Mac.

    UK addresses have 'County' i.e. Hertfordshire, Cornwall, Essex etc. This is the equivalent of a State in USA.

    In Outlook for Windows, Microsoft Exchange, Apple Contacts, Old versions of Outlook for Mac, Google Contacts etc. this field exists as it's essential.

    Outlook for Mac is the only place not to, so I presume it's an oversight?

  15. Additional line for addresses should appear in the contact card

    When entering someones address you should allow for a second and third line for things like a suite, apartment or office (the same way you do in Outlook for Windows).

  16. Can you please add a feature to STOP automatically adding contacts?

    It is really frustrating that my people list continues to be populated by random contact Outlook pulls out of my email. Please create an option to stop this (as is possible with Outlook for Windows).

  20. Link Contacts to a central Address

    Link Contacts to a single, central Address, as Windows can, then when a business where I have dozens of separate Contacts moves, I can update a single Address and get on with living life
