  3. MERGE CONTACT AND NOTES TAB IN PEOPLE

    HOW MANY YEARS IS IT GOING TO BE BEFORE THE CONTACT SHEET IS SIMILAR TO WINDOWS. THE NOTES TAB SHOULD BE ON THE CONTACT TAB IN PEOPLE (FOR EACH CONTACT). I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO SWITCH BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN TABS JUST TO ENTER INFORMATION. PLEASE FINALLY UPDATE OUTLOOK AND MAKE IT BEHAVE LIKE THE WINDOWS VERSION. I PAY YOU MORONS EACH YEAR FOR YOUR ****** SOFTWARE AND YOU MAKE NO REAL UPDATES TO THE SOFTWARE WHATSOEVER.

  6. move suggested contacts feature

    Hi,
    I noticed recently that there is not a way to easily move Suggested Contacts into my regular Contacts, as is the case in Outlook for PC. It would be great to be able to do this.

  7. Integrate Outlook Contacts with Linkedin Contacts

    Now that Microsoft owns Linkedin, it would be extremely helpful if Outlook was the primary sync point for all contact information. Within the notes section, place a summary of the positions held from the Linkedin profile. Synchronizing contact information and keeping profile info in one spot would make looking up contacts with specific skills, job titles, backgrounds, companies, etc much easier. Plus, making it perform the sync in the background would help keep contacts fresh.

  9. Contacts - Fix the Disaster

    Who ever designed the contacts part in Outlook for Mac, will be punished in his afterlife. So these are some basics that need fixing: 1) Enable copy and paste for more than just one part of the address. What on earth were you thinking? Copy & Paste Zip code, then city, street,...
    2) Make it more intuitive to allow for copying full contact (clone). I mean these are standard scenarios - you copy an address from email and create a new contact. You have several business contacts from the same company and just need to change parts of it in…

  10. Make Outlook for Mac Contacts much more like Windows

    Suggest Outlook Contact section look a lot more like that of Outlook for Windows. It was a big disappointment to move to the Mac.

  12. make it easy to search contacts by phone numbers

    It would be helpful to use phone numbers to search in my contacts. For example someone is calling and I see the caller-id number. I'd like to put the area code in to search and get a list of who it could be.

  17. gal sync

    As an enterprise, sometimes it helps to troubleshoot issues with the Global Address Book. It would be great to be able to have a GUI button that would allow one to force a full resync with the GAL.

    Additionally it would be great to have an option to set an update frequency for the GAL. Currently Outlook for Mac seems to be hardcoded to update once every 24 hours, but larger organizations might have a lot of changes to the GAL where it might be useful to have the GAL more frequently.

  18. Integrate Outlook for Mac with Salesforce.com

    Windows Outlook has the capability to interface with Salesforce.com, allowing for automatic contact updates and other hassle-free features. Outlook 2016 doesn't even allow a CSV file to be uploaded to import new contacts. You have to use Outlook 2011 to upload the CSV file and then wait for everything to sync to your 2016 Outlook. If Salesforce.com integration is not feasible, then at least allow CSV imports for contacts.
