  3. People application: IMPORT and DELETE/DELETE ALL in batch operations needs revisiting. Very slow response times and functionality needs help

    IMPORT and DELETE/DELETE ALL in batch operations needs revisiting. Very slow response times and functionality needs help. Not user-friendly. Using Giga WiFi and Chrome. Functionality doesn't look improved over old Hotmail. Needs significant improvement with design.

  10. We Need vCards Support in Outlook 2016 for Mac

    I would like to see the capability to be able to import and manage vCards in Outlook 2016 for Mac, as it is offered in the Windows version of the product. I use both versions on a daily basis and it is really difficult to use in the Mac version

  11. Export vCards

    In addition to forwarding a vCard in an e-mail, please include simply exporting a vCard to somewhere on the compute. It's annoying to have to create an e-mail, drag the attached vCard to my computer, then cancel the e-mail. It looks unprofessional to have to use that workaround.

  12. adding contact

    In previous versions I could add a contact from an email to my local address book by selecting the recipient and adding contact. Not sure if I haven't found it yet, but not as intuitive to add the contact local from an email with this version as it has been in previous versions of the client.

  13. Possibility of changing the display name of a contact. currently it is saved as they decided, not as saved in my contact list.

    Eg a contact has his display name as Macbook but in my contacts it is John Doe. So in inbox currently it shows as Macbook.

  14. Support searching Address List/GAL by using Advanced Search like Outlook for Windows

    Make searching the Global Address List (GAL) the same on Mac/OWA as in Windows. In Windows you can search for someone in the GAL using their Office, Title or another field.

    Whenever a user saves a contact from vcard, it should be saved in the default accounts address book instead of saving it locally.

  18. 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.

  19. Contact Category COLOR should match its selected Category Color.

    The color of the Contact Bubbles (circles) displayed in the People list in Outook for Mac 2016 (365), should match the color of the category set for those individual contacts. WHY in the world would Microsoft engineers assign random rainbow colors, that have zero purpose or relation to the contact's identity, when those contacts already have a color (of importance) tied to their selected category?! Just Reference (or use) Microsoft Outlook for Mac 2011 for an hour to understand how and why that contact category color is so important and useful (for inboxes, contact lists and calendars). At the very…

  20. 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.
