  1. restore search in Contacts

    the new search feature is not as good as searching within contacts. For example, I have 2 married friends who share an email address, but who have different cell phones. If I search on the wife's name, and select the result, Outlook gives the contact details of the husband, including his cellphone number. To find her number I have to start the search with "Mrs". The old search within contacts returned her contact details if I entered her name, not her husband's.

        • Add back contact list access.

          Within the app it is no longer possible to access the contact list. Now I have to use a separate app to access my contact list.

                    • need better integration with contacts.

                      if one only uses Outlook as the repository for contacts on Android, then the phone and messaging features do not work properly. it is a big problem that caused me to stop using Outlook for my exchange account. I went back to the stock Samsung app. now I just use Outlook for my Outlook. com email account.

                        • contact management with Microsoft Outlook

                          the contacts in this app only show certain information of the existing data in my Microsoft office outlook contacts that I use to record my contacts (and is synchronised to this up). for instance I can only see one or two phone numbers for each contact when I have additional phone numbers recorded (work, personal mobile, etc). why can't the app show the full information?

                                  • contacten die eerder zijn toegevoegd kunnen wijzigen of verwijderen, dat is nu niet mogelijk.

                                    contacten die ik heb toegevoegd in een andere outlook app, kan ik in deze outlook app niet wijzigen of verwijderen.

                                    gezien ik (en mogelijk ook andere gebruikers) contacten hebben die hun mail adres gewijzigd hebben en/of contacten hebben die men niet meer spreekt. lijkt het me handig om de contactlijst bij te kunnen werken.

                                    ik hoop u hiermee voldoende te hebben geïnformeerd.

                                    met vriendelijke groet,

                                    guus druif
