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

I have an incorrectly added contact and can't find it to edit. It automatically adds itself to the "send to" when I'm composing, but since I originally input it with a .con and not a .com, it won't send. When I use the search feature, I see this contact, but there's no way to select it to edit, it only inserts itself into a new email.
I also have one who died and would like to remove it, but I can't get to it.
Why are we not allowed to easily edit/remove our contacts? It's ridiculously short-sighted.

outlook app does not allow to delete frequently contacted email I'd when composing new message in outlook app.
this is causing inconvenience.
web browser based outlook allows to delete.
android app does not allow.
so, pls check and fix android app to allow users to delete unwanted frequently contacted email I'd.
this issue existed since long and never fixed.

Support tells me I can't get rid of it, which I find hard to believe. May need to switch to a different mail app on my phone.

I don't get any errors I just can't edit a contact's notes with 20+ lines. It won't add the key strokes. The search issue is if you have a contact called Apple ID/iTunes and search just iTunes it won't find it.

The number of contact list sources that are getting redundantly mixed together has become very unmanageable. There needs to be a way to control where they are coming from and functionality or links for editing them.
Not being able to do it is massively inconvenient. Also being able to export to Outlook may be useful so contacts can be backed up.
Outlook for Android refuses to use updated contact info for contact stored in Outlook.com. Looking at Outlook.com in a browser, the contact info did sync. The only way to send an email using the contact's new address is to copy-paste or type the address. From this behavior, doubt any name change would be reflected either. Frustrating!

make it simple to add a contact
Fabien Gremaud commented
you should add an option to fully manage the contacts from you outlook app. Including the birthday management, address, website, ...

Every morning the app should notify me that a certain contact "was last contacted 23 days ago. Would you like to send them a message?"
Gerry Wallace commented
Ensure that you can also save the view that matches Outlook on other platforms. For example, when you save a contact that syncs with the current Samsung Contacts app it puts the firstname and lastname in the same field within the contact card in other versions of Outlook and doesn't recognise that it's a firstname and lastname like it would when you do it in Outlook for desktop.

Edit contacts within the Outlook app rather than the system app
