  3. Default Contacts

    I have multiple Exchange 365 accounts in Outlook, and when I add a new contact, it defaults into the one account that I don’t want my contacts going into. We have defaults for email and calendar, but not for contacts. Please fix.

  6. Rename “people” to “contacts”

    I don’t only have “people” in my address book. I have many businesses listed as well. They aren’t technically “people” are they? 😉
    “People” can also be confusing to some users.

    Also, the address book really needs an upgrade. Even the default iOS contacts app is miles ahead.

  7. Add Caller Identification feature on iOS

    Allow the Outlook app to use the GAL, as well as Mailbox Contacts, for Caller Identification, similar to the LinkedIn app on iOS.

    Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification

  9. Ability to remove contacts from the quick search

    Would like to be able to clear the contacts (circles) from quick search (when you click magnifying glass at middle bottom). Some of the contacts are outdated but they remain appearing in the front. Would be nice to clear all the contacts from this screen or selectively clear the contacts.

  11. iOS Dual Sim Support

    Set the preferred SIM on outgoing calls for contacts imported into the iOS address book per account.

    iPhone XR and XS support dual sim. Contacts can be assigned which SIM to use for outgoing calls.
    Right now, this does not work for outlook contacts: They always use the “default” line (which is the personal one in my case). You cannot manually set the preferred line in the iOS contact either as these contacts are read only.

  14. One day birthday shift after sync

    Outlook has the option to sync contacts to the iPhone internal contact app. That’s very helpful. But there is a problem of sync of birthdays of contacts. After sync the birthday for every contact is one day before the correct day of birth. It would be great to fix this issue. Thanks a lot!

  15. Include contacts and customization of those circles next to names

    Dear Microsoft. I just started using Outlook on my iPad. Latest version is much better. Thanks for the improvements.

    Please consider including access to contacts (or is that “People”) in the app. There is only search and calendar besides email. Not sure where I have to go to edit or manage the contacts, except going to the Outlook.com website each time.

    Also, those circle things on the left sidebar or navigation bar... can we customize those? Or can they pick up the images from my Outlook.com accounts?

  18. New Contacts - auto add contacts signature data

    A feature that I'm strongly missing is the recognition of signature information from an email of a new contact. Currently when setting up a new contact every bit of contact information needs to be filled in manually, something not doable and annoying in particular on the go. Contacts are key to very much every business and I strongly believe that adding this feature to this app will increase its download massively. So many people complaining about this and make them stick to the native iOS mail.
