Improve Contact Management
Add the ability to add / edit / delete contacts. Also be able to add a contact right from an email.
We highly appreciate your feedback you’ve given us about this feature. Good news: We’re close to releasing it on Android. You can get a sneak preview here: https://blogs.office.com/2017/06/05/improving-people-in-outlook-for-ios-and-android/
Thanks for your patience as we make the final touches!
All the best
The Outlook Mobile Team

moving to 365 means contacts duplicated. no way to clean them up.

Unfortunately, it seems like the contacts were an afterthought, and are hidden behind the search. For example, there is no alpha tabs for moving between contacts. It almost seems like mobile expects you to use your device's contacts, but I prefer to use my Office 365 list as the main "go to". Please take a queue from Outlook desktop and give more attention to this area.

add/ delete change contacts
as of now, I only see contacts with an email address. I want my whole contacts folder with the groupings. the current set up is clunky and you have to scroll through all of them. the native Samsung app was great for contacts, but now wont sync. outlook syncs, but doesn't work well for anything other than email (phone calls, addresses, notes are all important info)

If I only have one contact with the name, 'Mom', then I expect when I search contacts for 'Mom', that contact should be at the top of the list. As opposed to every random contact where I have a note about someone else's Mom, being shown, and having to scroll through dozens of contacts that I didn't even ask for. Name search should take priority over note search AND be displayed first when a search is made.

I just wanna manage my contacts

Make it EASY
It would be very convinient and efficient for us to manage our contacts directly within the Outlook Android App with full sync capabilities to our other devices. In the point of now we always have to switch to the Outlook webapp.

Ability to delete contacts individually on Android using the mobile only
Rainer Hensel commented
Not having a proper Contact module within Outlook to mange / edit contacts is the single most annoying thing about this app. It drives me crazy and seems both inefficient and old fashioned.
Jayson Pitkofsky commented
This catagory you call it People, in the outlook Search you call it Contacts. Please pick one!
Second, we need to see more detail. You can add contacts from the search tab (not easy to find) but when done you dont see or can see the full info you just entered. And if you entered a contact by phone number only you dont see them if they have no email in this app.
Give us full Contacts/People

This seems like a great idea.

search doesn't find contact based on other data like company name, or other field

Delete old contacts
Duncan Beattie commented
I don't have emails saved from this sender in either my inbox or sent items. I don't have their contact details saved to my contacts. And yet they still show as a contact in search. Either by recognising that historically something has been sent to them or by having been saved somewhere. I want the ability to delete a contact and have no prompt to their email address in the future. i.e. I don't want to ever be in contact with them again or keep having their name pop up.
A shame we cannot manage contacts via the app in 2019.
