        Allow editing contacts on the app and not override by the 365/pc list. Every time I add a contact it is eliminated by the 365 sync. If I delete a contact it is recovered by the sync.

        Need the ability to see and edit all contact details given by a particular platform (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.), not just the email and phone number fields

        we must create and modify contact directly from the smartphone's contacts app (or After a call, we have to create a new office365 contact directly from dialer app..) thank You, and good work!

        a group list in contacts is limited to 40, therefore can't use phone to send message to my newsletter list, something I could do with my Note II.

        If I connect a Shared_Contacts SharePoint List to my Outlook, it should show up in my Outlook app too. There is no easy way for Outlook mobile app users to share contacts

        This was standard with Outlook in the past using exchange. Now my organization uses these apps and I cannot manage contacts on my phone....and they don't even synch with my contacts on my phone. I have to access Outlook, switch to contacts, find the contact, then click that I want to call, then confirm, then click one more. Madness. Used to be so easy to add a contact on mobile, update and embellish on desktop or laptop, and would synch automatically...and be available to call / text / email from my mobile phone contact list.

        Makes me want to switch to (sigh) Gmail. Have been diehard Outlook just since 1990s, but this is getting old...

        While syncing contacts is working, it is still not possible to add contacts with the mobile app. The website app is so similar to the mobile app now, it seems extra work to have to go there to add a contact. Actually if everything is to be interchangeable, this should be a priority feature. This is the oy address book that I use so you can I would like to have this feature. Thank you. Laura McCabe.
