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

I can't even add an email contact

Can't sort contact list like most apps. can't view LinkedIn related contact info. Contact editing often crashes. app doesn't follow OS dark theme.

Outlook is inconsistent on different platforms.

I have contacts in Outlook that have been deleted from every other location...for years...but they remain in Outlook and cannot be erased.

Contact's in Outlook Android have no organisational capability. I want to be able to categorise and file contacts like I can on desktop Outlook.
Sub folders should sync to the device too - maybe on a selection basis, but it's horrible that they are outright excluded right now.

auto contacts that come up when putting in the recipient of emails. delete old unused people.

contacts that are not in use anymore should be able to be removed permanently.

Everyone who is using Outlook on their computer is used to have a mail, calendar and contact tab. This should be consistent in the Android App.
The contact management needs to become a real feature to be helpful, with possibility to chose which accounts to synchronize or not. This was one of the great feature in Windows Phones, with some predictable consolidation options... why not replicate ?

there is no reason for you to decide which contacts i can delete...period.

I prefer the old hotmail format when it comes to email contacts. It was much easier to find and update. I have no idea where my email contacts are now and I can't update them. I've had this account since 1995, and ALL of those names and info flooded my phone contacts a few months ago when they automatically synced. We are such a transitional society now, most of those emails, phone numbers, and addresses are now void.

cant change my name from wolfy back to my real name lol
there's no way to delete an account from the Outlook app on Android.

Currently you do not have an Android app configuration key setting available to allow the "Save Contacts" option to be turned on through MDM deployment for Android devices. This is a simple Boolean option from what I can see.
I can configure mostly every other option except for this one which is a pain when you are deploying outlook to 100s and 1000s of android devices within our environment.

show n allow linking. show what account the contact is under. better sync ( many duplicates). add dedicated contact listing instead of dumb search page.

Want to be able to add Contacts from Desktop Outlook to Mobile Outlook Groups.
Whenever you send/get an email from someone, the address becomes linked to your account. We should be able to permanently remove them if we want to!
Also, let us delete contacts from the search menu in Outlook.
