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

contacts from Outlook show existing addresses, but they can't be edited and you can't add an address to a new contract

I would like to be able to add or edit contacts from Outlook.
It utterly baffles me why it is impossible to do this in the Outlook for Android app. This seems like the most basic of functions.

escaped characters in Contacts

As of now, whatever contacts we add from device they ask in which account you want to to save it. Gmail, Outlook and Phone. which creates some issues and duplicacy sometime. Please give an option in the outlook app only to add new contact.

Also, please let there be pictures for the contacts. This is 2017!
Bryant Van Leeuwen commented
you should be able to create an Outlook contact in the Outlook app, that includes contacts
Dennis Gereb commented
it's ridiculous having to jump through so many hoops to manage blocked contacts, should not have to look it up on the web.
I want to be able to edit contacts on my Android phone
Adam Borsi commented
it would be nifty if I could use the outlook app to manage my contacts and address book within my account(s) (MSO365/Hotmail). at the moment I'm relying on the Android contacts app to mislabel and lose my contacts. I'd rather that responsibility be placed on my outlook app.

Edit people in Outlook app as well as be able to filter the people you are seeing by account.

Would also be nice if we could select multipel Contacts from GAL and add them to our Outlook Contacts, this is not possible at the moment.
Amy Pimentel commented
I am just annoyed that I can't even delete some of my contact list permanently and not important anymore. It would be good and less stress. Thanks anyway
Hans Petter Amundsen commented
It would be great with contact suggestion from previous emails.
Would be nice if there was something like a RSS feed to let us know when this would be in place for Google contacts as well...
Ben Clegg commented
currently i see no way of adding a new contract in people.
JP X commented
when I want to edit or add contacts to my phone outlook contacts does not have that option. that's very antiquated.
Jonas Norström commented
Why only O365? Should work for any Exchange server!
