    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
