        Do also NOT add all email adresses to contacts. Do not need/want the addresses of all who sent me an (unwanted) email. want to delete them permanently. not possible know.

        Please allow to manage / delete contacts from the list. Add the ability to select different options for contacts(edit,delete,share,email,task, etc).

        full edit of existing contact, plus creation of new, especially from received phone calls, texts or emails. also allow configuration of text messages to emails as Android mail allows.

        I realize this app is evolving. I'm shocked to see I can't add a contact from email and EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, I can't list contacts by their last name.

        Make it so we can enter contacts on our phones. Right now we have to save the contact, enter it on the laptop app and sync it to the phone. This is annoying. Please fix this.

        new contacts thatI receive eg through Whatsapp can be stored on my device and an O365 edit contact form opens. however this is not stored and it is gone. now I need to retype name and number in outlook on my PC to save it. and when outlook resets after incorrect login attempts because my finger scan fails a number of times, all contacts are gone on my device, including in whatsapp and phone app. this has happened several times now. perhaps we can rebuild the people hub from windows phone, which is the best I've worked with by far?

        allow users to add new email contacts manually or direct from a received email and delete existing contacts while using the app
