        I should be able to select multiple contacts at a time and delete them.
        Going to different names and deleting them kills time.

        I cannot delete contacts from account when on mobile. Tried the outlook app and logging in through internet and requesting desktop site (only makes font smaller), I cannot access the 'delete contacts' feature whilst using mobile. Slide options only work for emails, not in the contacts pane. Very annoying as I hardly ever go on a pc these days and could prune my contacts list as and when, if it was possible from mobile.
        If it is possible then I'm thick, spent about 30mins looking and none the wiser!

        make it so I can delete all these random emails that are populating some hidden list. So ******* annoying

        I am allowed to create a subfolder but after that I'm not allowed to delete the folder I created. I misspelled a subfolder name and I am not allowed to go back to correct that error.

        While Using Outlook in Android device. Outlook doesn't give the option to add new contact. Please assist on this.

        I like this app, however, it would be even better if I could add a contact one the go. our business has an onsite MS Exchange server.

        I have sent several mails to invalid email accounts due to misspellibg. I would like to ensure they don't pop up as suggestions/ delete them.

        allow editing and adding contacts from the phone contacts. having to remember until I reach a computer with Outlook installed makes me loose contact details.

        With the improvements to contact management that have been made recently leave on-premises users in the dark when it comes to managing contacts.

        Add the ability to add / edit / delete contacts. Also be able to add a contact right from an email.

        I agree - too complicated to copy and paste, opening another screen etc to add contacts.
