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 want to be able to delete/edit a contact
Annette Schmidt commented
Please make contacts available in full, including the notes. right now I mostly can see only the phone number. it is synchronizing since months! I have in in contact with the support ans have reinstalled the app several times. Once, in between, the information was there, then disappeared again. this can be devastating, especially when travelling. it can't be that I have to write my contacts again on paper...The problem has nothing to do with the online version! outlook online and on the desktop work perfectly!

Adding an option to sync phone contacts and their birthdays with the outlook app and calendar
When I try to search for a contact, the Outlook app searches my email folders--not my contacts folder. it seems the only way to search my contacts is to use the web-based outlook page...which is exactly what I don't want to do. I want to search locally stored contacts without needing internet. i am in a jungle and cant always get internet access but the outlook app does not support Contacts anywhere close to the way it did on my Windows phones. I miss my Lumia Windows Phone!
moving to 365 means contacts duplicated. no way to clean them up.

there used to a favorites which acted as a memory. if you cleared a name in here it would be gone. now if you delete a contact it still brings up the old email address.
Thomas Kelley commented
Unfortunately, it seems like the contacts were an afterthought, and are hidden behind the search. For example, there is no alpha tabs for moving between contacts. It almost seems like mobile expects you to use your device's contacts, but I prefer to use my Office 365 list as the main "go to". Please take a queue from Outlook desktop and give more attention to this area.

add/ delete change contacts
as of now, I only see contacts with an email address. I want my whole contacts folder with the groupings. the current set up is clunky and you have to scroll through all of them. the native Samsung app was great for contacts, but now wont sync. outlook syncs, but doesn't work well for anything other than email (phone calls, addresses, notes are all important info)

If I only have one contact with the name, 'Mom', then I expect when I search contacts for 'Mom', that contact should be at the top of the list. As opposed to every random contact where I have a note about someone else's Mom, being shown, and having to scroll through dozens of contacts that I didn't even ask for. Name search should take priority over note search AND be displayed first when a search is made.

I just wanna manage my contacts

Make it EASY
It would be very convinient and efficient for us to manage our contacts directly within the Outlook Android App with full sync capabilities to our other devices. In the point of now we always have to switch to the Outlook webapp.

Accessing Outlook contacts from Android app using search feature only shows email addresses. Please make Outlook contacts information fully accessible from the app. Also, please make phone numbers and other data functional (either copy to clipboard and paste into other app, or click on phone number to call, or click email to send email). Also, please make contact information editable from app. Would like to be able to access full contact list (2000+ contacts) within app, it is having trouble creating a list, perhaps due to number of contacts? Thank you!

Ability to delete contacts individually on Android using the mobile only
Rainer Hensel commented
Not having a proper Contact module within Outlook to mange / edit contacts is the single most annoying thing about this app. It drives me crazy and seems both inefficient and old fashioned.
Jayson Pitkofsky commented
This catagory you call it People, in the outlook Search you call it Contacts. Please pick one!
Second, we need to see more detail. You can add contacts from the search tab (not easy to find) but when done you dont see or can see the full info you just entered. And if you entered a contact by phone number only you dont see them if they have no email in this app.
Give us full Contacts/People
DarkGray Knight commented
This seems like a great idea.

Please add a plus button next to the receiver list that can select email address only from known contacts and not from all seen email address.
