  1. update Outlook contacts from phone

    I am struggling with contacts update. When I change something on the phone, it somehow reverts to the version on the server instead of incorporating the changes

    • Add the contacts icon on the bottom navigation bar.

      The new version removed the contacts icon for the search icon but when I search I don't always get the contact I am looking for even if it's in my contacts. Then clicking on the contacts it sends me to the list where I can not search anymore, I have to scroll, the previous version was much more intuitive

            • Add people icon that could replace android contacts

              so Android used to sync better with contacts appointments but Google kindly remove that service. thanks Google. if Microsoft could provide a people icon then that would replace the one down the bottom that I use to make phone calls and I wouldn't have to sync the contacts because I'd be going directly to where all my contacts stored. also I like Microsoft people better because you can type in beside the phone number the name of the person ie big company, phone number one, mike. phone number two, bob etc

                  • Show / Edit Profile Pictures

                    I have in Outlook 2016 at every contact a profile picture. I see this also in the People Hub on Outlook.com, but not in the app.

                    Please add this feature to the app as well.

                    • Recipient groups/email address groups aren't recognised on the app

                      I have a group of email address that I need to frequently sent emails to. I cannot sent these emails from the app because the group is not recognised as a receipient. I also cannot create, edit, or view these groups

                      • Add a feature to delete e-mail contact from the App.

                        one should be able to delete a contact from the app itself.

                          • Contacts need a scroll bar or alphabet list so contacts can be accessed quicker. It takes too long to search through contacts.

                            When I access the contact feature I get a list starting at "A". I have to slowly scroll through all of them to get to the one I want. Sometimes I'm unsure of spelling or how the contact is listed in my contacts. A scroll bar allows me to pull through the contacts with greater speed. See the Android contact App for example. Pretty basic stuff, not sure why MS hasn't mastered this yet.

                                      • return regular contacts view

                                        Keep that new search feature if you want, but give us back contacts view as normal instead of having to click through search. It's bad enough you screwed up the People app for Win10 and I'm stuck using an Android phone, now I'm going to have to use their nasty default contacts.

                                        • Please allow us to see list of Outlook contacts once they have been synched. Sometimes we need to view our contacts and even edit them!

                                          There is no apparent way to keep contacts synched appropriately. Yes, there is a synched function, but it does not include phone number and email types and data gets lost. That means that even our desktop/outlook.com contacts stay in synched, Our Outlook for Android contacts will not. So please fix that.
