  2. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  19. 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.
