Improve Contact Management
Add the ability to add / edit / delete contacts. Also be able to add a contact right from an email.

Thanks for your patience as we make the final touches!
All the best

So, the blog referenced dated 2017/06/05 states that we can now edit and two-way sync contacts from the Outlook for Android app.... Strange though that I can't even add a new contact in the app let alone edit one. Is there a new version of the app coming?

I have to go to the computer and open my browser and remember a string of numbers…

You can set the native Contacts Android app to sync w Outlook. But the fields are different than those in Outlook. Prefer to work directly in Outlook. I agree completely with other posters. Outlook on Windows phone 10 was Superior to the native Android and iOS apps on their respective phones - in MANY ways. But this Outlook for Android just doesn't measure up.

no option to delete synced contacts permanently
We need a method of adding or updating contacts in the Outlook app for Android. If the contact is added directly to contacts in Android it disappears with a message stating the contact can't be saved. From within Outlook there is no method of either updating or adding contacts, unlike the iPhone version.
can't edit people in my android app
Allow us to delete contacts!
It would be awesome if we could manage/add contacts in IMAP and also create groups.

The ability to edit contact details in Outlook for Android is a must!
Contacts often do not show up in the contact list after adding them. Very annoying!!!!
regular Outlook on a Windows 10 platform let's me manage Contacts efficiently. Outlook for Android does not.

How can this outlook.com and the outlook app NOT BE ABLE TO edit/delete contacts? you would think that feature woild have been on the short list of "day one" items when building??

i can't add contacts on my android when i receive an email but i can on the web version. very frustrating as known senders go to junk until i can get on a computer.

Please let me add and edit contacts from the app instead of having to log into Office365.
