    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

    It is currently already possible to turn on/off the Focused Inbox, to do so go to settings then tap the toggle switch to turn on/off the Focused Inbox option.

    Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app. You may reach them by going to the app’s Setting > Help and Feedback > Contact Support.

    Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

    All the best,

  3. restore search in Contacts

    the new search feature is not as good as searching within contacts. For example, I have 2 married friends who share an email address, but who have different cell phones. If I search on the wife's name, and select the result, Outlook gives the contact details of the husband, including his cellphone number. To find her number I have to start the search with "Mrs". The old search within contacts returned her contact details if I entered her name, not her husband's.

  15. Contacts Sync Problems between Exchange and Outlook on Android

    Please create a sync setting that forces Contacts/People to only sync one-way. In other words, I only want data to push from the server to my Android device, and not vice-versa. If I create a brand new Contact on my Android device, then that can sync to the cloud, but lock existing Contacts on my Android device so that I can't edit them.

    Why? Well, your Contact sync engine is not reliable yet. In fact, it's screwing up my precious data. This is totally inexcusable. Want a case study? OK, here you go...

    I was so excited when you added…

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using Outlook and taking the time to share your experience with us.

    We currently only support the latest version of the app, available on iTunes. This means that it is not possible to go back to older versions of the app at the moment.

    If you’re having trouble with the current version, please let us know through the Help Section of the app.

  18. need better integration with contacts.

    if one only uses Outlook as the repository for contacts on Android, then the phone and messaging features do not work properly. it is a big problem that caused me to stop using Outlook for my exchange account. I went back to the stock Samsung app. now I just use Outlook for my Outlook. com email account.

  20. contact management with Microsoft Outlook

    the contacts in this app only show certain information of the existing data in my Microsoft office outlook contacts that I use to record my contacts (and is synchronised to this up). for instance I can only see one or two phone numbers for each contact when I have additional phone numbers recorded (work, personal mobile, etc). why can't the app show the full information?
