        Having business contacts on the phone would be very helpful. At the time of voluntary or involuntary separation most business want to remove business contacts from the device - most likely through MDM. I am wondering would it be possible to add that feature?

        On the 14 August, I said:
        'Your Blog post update (7 August ?) says "these improvements have been made available in Outlook for Android".

        As of 15 August the facility still does not exist. Please make sure Blog post'

        It's really a disadvantage to not be able to add contacts to my outlook from an android device .Support has suggested using the Web interface But what's the point of having a mobile app This is a major deficiency with outlook on android And the fact that I can't have a windows phone anymore ****** me off even more .Maybe after my thousandth post somebody will listen Or maybe I'll just start using Google more is that really what you want Microsoft And yes I'm marking this as a bug

        I am not able to add/amend contact information on the handset app. I have to wait until I can amend the Outlook list on the computer then wait for it to sync. Not good or convenient.

        Ability to edit contacts, why this does not exist is very strange considering 3rd party apps do it with Outlook.com!
