  1. Outlook Contacts Addressable by FaceTime and iMessage

    The simplest way would be to make the contacts from Outlook into a clickable option on Internet Accounts > Hotmail/Exchange accounts. For instance, in Settings > Internet Accounts, a Gmail account has Mail/Contacts/Calendars/Notes as clickable options. If a Gmail user clicks the contacts box, then their Gmail contacts show up in Apple's Contacts app, and their Gmail contacts can be used with FaceTime and iMessage. However, my Hotmail account only has Mail/Notes as options. Please add contacts to the list of possible account integrations. This will open up FaceTime and iMessage. Yeah, yeah, I use Skype, I know. Try getting…

  2. Add skype, telegram, wechat etc contacts

    add skype, telegram, wechat etc to outlook contacts. Outlook contacts is from the 1990's -it only has phone and email. Do none of the outlook developers use skype for example? I am amazed no one has thought of adding this. We only use skype, wechat and telegram. We have no email addresses, and no telephones in our organisations. AS such, outlook doesn't support us. We have to put the skype address etc. into "notes". We need a field for this. Currently, it only has "IM address" which is of no use because it doesnt say which IM - there are…

  4. doubleclick on a VIP to open new message

    I categorize people in purple category as friends. I can just see them when I click on the list. why not to save a step just double click on the name and it automatically opens up a new email with the person's address already entered in the "to" line.

  8. I suggest you include the possibility to "open a new tab" for contacts (and calendar), as it is already possible in Outlook for Windows.

    I am having a lot of difficulties managing my contacts on Outlook for Mac. The reason the experience is not good for me is because I cannot “open a new tab” and keep the contacts open (something that can be done in Outlook for windows).

    Therefore I have to rely on third party applications, such as Contacts from Mac OS, which does not handle contacts very well

  12. Need to have an ability to add images in contact notes.

    We should be able to add the images to the notes section of any contact as we can do in Windows Outlook.

  16. 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

  18. I suggest you hire/enlist individuals who are on the "Support" with knowledge, experience, and education to be able address problems/issues.

    Hire individuals working with SUPPORT to have knowledge of the software, have experience working with the software, and most importantly, have education/training on the software.

  19. In Contacts- include the "Display" and the "close and new" features.

    Add the "Display" option when entering people to Contacts so the entire name and their email address is not shown to all other recipients.
    Also add the "Close and New" option to move quickly from adding one new Contact to the next.

  20. Support for Asian name

    Contact Name display issue.
    As an Asian, I prefer to see my contact name as ‘last name’ + ‘first name’. But Outlook does not provide such option neither the option does not work.
    Sometimes I include job title in my contact’s first name. In the case, the contact name is displayed very wierd.
