I mean to say by this if anyone doesn't want to share their personal life here so need a privacy here so that unwanted people should not send messages here,and also an option of deleting contacts which are not needed I mean some people try to add so that needed to be stopped and also if someone changes their IDs or anything then their old IDs and information should be deleted and also keep an option of to whom people want to share their profile and to whom not.

don't have readily access to search contacts within the organization. I would like to do everything via my mobile device related to work.
Lucinda Mahony commented
contacts is now a separate app in Android which means we cannot sync shared contacts. please return contacts to outlook app so contacts will sync properly.

Some time ago I lost 5k contacts. A few months discussion with Microsoft support does not resolve the problem. The funny (but serious) problem was, that Microsoft didn't feel any responsibility for the situation.
Fortunately I had all my contacts in my Huawei phone. So I'm just before switching to Chinese software which is much more reliable and know what it is "customer care".

I need to delete contacts before synching contacts to my android phone. There is no need for email contacts to appear on my phone device. There is also no need to keep all email contacts. Previous employers, college faculty, relatives of relatives, and friends of friends are all showing up when I "synch contacts". It is creating a frustrating experience when I am trying to type an email contact and cannot scroll through dropdown options to select the correct email address.

******* being able to delete contacts...what more do I need to say.
Philip Montgomery commented
The current implementation within outlook is mediocre. All contacts should be displayed in a scrollable list with THEIR OWN TAB

Just make it simple. Add a an easy click button beside contacts address if they are not already on your contacts list.

At the moment, when I start typing the email address, contact get inserted automatically. What happens if I typed the address wrong once? That becomes the contact and it is a pain to then type the correct email address for the same contact. Can not edit that contact. There is no contacts list to go and change it either.
candy ong commented
when I click which contact I can see all activities of that contact with all details
the name of the person having the generic email ID has changed, but on my mobile, the contact name still remains.
