      • Enable Groups in Contacts

        With over 2000 contacts in my outlook, it is essential that I have them sorted by group (ie: category in Outlook). For example all my coworkers are in a group and can be quickly accessed without scrolling through all the names.

        • include phone numbers in contacts

          i have been using windows phone for the last few years and it was awesome. my single favourite thing was absolutely seemless sync between outlook and the phone. Sadly due to the lack of quality dual sim devices andd my constant travel i have switched to android. i can not believe how poor the sync is with outlook. Why are phone numbers not synced, it works on iOS. Android totally sucks as software. Sadly its the only OS hardware is available on.

              • two way contact sync

                The app now only provides one way contact sync from outlook.com to phone. a true two way contact sync would be great. so that adding contacts through phone is possible.

                • sync contacts to and from phone contacts. Adding a phone number to a contact naturally occur when someone calls you from a new number.

                  it is important to sync from phone to outlook and not only from outlook to phone. phone numbers are captured when someone calls you from a new number. however they are lost to the phone if not synced to outlook.

                    • 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

                        • allow dialing from contacts and events

                          I would like to be able to dial contacts from Outlook for android. Right now, i only see the contact's email.

                          Also, need to be able to dial from calendar events. for example, I often use the location field in the event for a phone number when the event is a phone call or conference call.

                            In Outlook desktop I have notes attached to contacts (e. G. Account reference numbers needed when communicating with the contact person or company) . These are not visible in Outlook for Android.

                                • Include option to separate Outlook contacts from device contacts

                                  Instead of listing all contacts from both the device and from email accounts as device and Outlook contacts, there should be an option to show only Outlook contacts in Outlook and keep them separate from the device contacts. It's annoying to see random contacts listed in Outlook, and makes finding important contacts easier. As stated, this should be optional, so people can still sync their contacts to their device.

                                          Android will not read contacts from Outlook. Cannot save contacts to Outlook from Android.
