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

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
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.

This seems like a great idea.
eu estou usando o Outlook no Brasil e no speak Engliga, não me serviu para nada. Thank you!!

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.

android app needs more functionality

Too many unused and incorrect addresses are stored in app memory. Users should be able to delete them.

Android contact applications are very different in many devices. We need a contact management in outlook applications.

My contacts address book is now called *mailname*:outlook:beta and it messed up my phone contacts... I think that release cycle was a little too short
Can not delete old e-mail addresses
J McKinnon commented
People have been requesting this since 2015. I still see no way to delete contacts in the Android Outlook app. I especially don't want contacts automatically added from emails. This was a terrible idea to begin with, and it's an even worse idea that I have no delete button.
