  1. Allow contacts to be viewed in business card views

    Be able to view contacts in a business card view. Much easier to search if you can "click" on the letter of the alphabet and jump to that section.

  6. Allow the address format to be customised

    The number of subfields in the address field is limited to 4 which is insufficient for UK addresses. The365 function should mirror the behaviour in Outlook for Microsoft at the least

  8. allow email addresses to be imported to create a distribution list

    From Excel or any other spreadsheet so I don't have to enter them 1 by 1! This is so incredibly time consuming.....

  9. I suggest you make it possible to display middle names in the headings of the Outlook address book. Many people go by middle or maiden names

    Since many people (especially women) include middle or maiden names in the name they go by most often, it seems, especially in this day and age, that this feature should be added to Outlook's address book. Every other address book software that I know of (like the standard Mac address book) allows this feature. Why not MIcrosoft?

  11. Sync Google Contact Groups with Outlook Categories

    Syncing Google Contact groups with Outlook Mac Categories will allow you to sort your contacts in Outlook by Category. I find using Categories in Outlook for Windows to be an efficient way to manage several hundred business contacts at work. In fact, my Samsung Smartphone's native email client also syncs Google Groups which provides he same experience on my mobile phone.

  12. Support distribution lists for Exchange accounts

    Please add support for contact distribution lists for Exchange accounts. Outlook for Mac does not recognize the distribution lists I have available in Outlook Web App.

  15. PLEASE Bring Back the Drag and Drop Function for Moving Multiple Contacts into a Contact Group

    Please Bring Back the Drag and Drop Function for Moving Multiple Contacts into a Contact Group...Many businesses send "blast" emails to a specific group of people on a regular basis - that's why Outlook created the "Contact Group" feature. However, their latest update has eliminated the Drag & Drop function which allowed you to highlight multiple contacts and drag them into the group. NOW you have to manually type in every single individual name and email you wish to add to the group...sometimes that list includes hundreds of contacts, making the Contact Group tool virtually useless...or causing Outlook users to…

  18. enabling to record academical title or others into Contact Cards / Details (Field Title)

    As on Windows and Webversion it should be possible to record the "academical" Title (not the Company Internal Position/Job Name) into the Contact details.

    f.e. like Mr. Dr. Michael Jefferson

    Thanks

  20. Support Labels for Google (Gmail) contacts / people

    Google contacts (like mail) uses labels for categorization of people.
    Please also support the function in Outlook People.
    At least sync the information and make it available for smart folders, or also have the ability to update the information in Outlook directly.

    Thanks and keep on the great work of constantly improving Office for Mac :-)
