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

show n allow linking. show what account the contact is under. better sync ( many duplicates). add dedicated contact listing instead of dumb search page.

Want to be able to add Contacts from Desktop Outlook to Mobile Outlook Groups.
Whenever you send/get an email from someone, the address becomes linked to your account. We should be able to permanently remove them if we want to!
Also, let us delete contacts from the search menu in Outlook.
Permanent Contact Removal Idea

I have been trying to Erase, Delete Email Contacts Addresses & Or Numbers from my Android phone list & they are still there. I have tried editing to Delete but still there. any suggestions? some of the Email addresses are annoying they send me Emails everyday all day!!! Im not interested!!!
Gail Gomez commented
there should be a way to delete a address that appears as a suggestion when writing a new email.
Gail Gomez commented
when you start a new email and click the "to" line a list of suggested email addresses appears. Some you will never use again, were a wrong address, etc. I suggest there be a way to delete these email addresses that are not contacts. Maybe you emailed customer service and now you no longer even own the product. I should be able to delete that address. Please help!

After using many years your emailadres get polluted with names and addresses you no longer use. Option to remove names would be nice.
be able to delete old contacts that you do not use any more

where is the contact list
David Barrett commented
The existing Contacts on mobile is inadequate and looks as though it has been created by a small inexperienced team with no thought of users needs. Please include the ability to add entries of all fields of the desktop version. Include a better means of browsing entries plus indexing by surname.

The information in the admin link above is great, but it only works with Exchange online accounts and not on premises Exchange Servers. With Exchange servers, contact sync is one way only from the server to the phone/tablet. You cannot add new contacts either via Outlook app or via native contacts app.
When will this functionality be available?
Yes I can use the native ActiveSync clients on our managed mobile devices to achieve two way contact sync, but we want to use Intune App protection, App configuration and conditional access with the Outlook app (and block ActiveSync).
Contacts not working correctly is preventing moving forward with Outlook app and Intune.

display alphabetical/numeric list of all contacts/people. When user looks for Ms. Smyth contact info. Users selects 'S' /scrolls to Smyth/ make selection. All one handed.

give the user the option for the auto fill while typing in a contacts name also in a search bar not showing recent sent contact

I only see folders and other options under the settings. nothing about my contacts list at all. it would be nice if I could add contacts while I'm on the go. instead I have to write them down and either use the computer when home or hope it works via chrome mobile. Not that adding or removing contacts comes up very often but I do often wish to see my contacts list. to double check spelling or add/change nicknames and stuff. But there is no way to do that anymore and even on my computer I found navigating a large list of contacts incredibly frustrating.
I think this falls under "people"? If that's the new word for contacts it damned well better change back.
I can't find a way to add contacts
