        if this app allowed contact management, it would then be the only app i would need to access all my work and personal email accounts.

        From within an email, you can see each contacts, even their photo, but cannot open their profile, for instance to all. This is available on basic Android email and contacts

        Why isnt this feature "planned"?I am new to Outlook android and I cant believe that I am not able to select multiple contacts from my phone contact list. Unless I'm missing something.

        it would be awesome to be able to add an a contact right from our phones instead of having to open Outlook on a computer to add a contact if you add a contact from a phone right now they get deleted by the sync

        would also like to list contacts by organization/company. would make people easier to find when you can't remember their name.

        I need to utilize my microsoft exchange work contacts in order to make using outlook on my phone effective. Why receive work emails and not work contacts? Instead, my personal contacts saved to my phone appear in outlook contacts. How is this helpful?

        for some time when ever i am adding a new number to my mobile phone and syncing it to outlook, it disappears from the contact list and vice versa. please add this feature because its very troubling for us as i have to update the contact again and again.
