  1. Contacts - send to a group

    I can’t seem to find the ability to select a group of contacts that are in my PC’s Outlook to send an email to all of them?

  2. Allow the mobile app to access contacts subfolders and shared folders

    In the Outlook desktop app and the OWA, I have my default contacts folder, but also subfolders and folders of contacts that are shared with me. The Outlook mobile app (iOS, but maybe android too?) only allows access to the main contacts folder. Please allow the mobile app to access all my contacts folder, subfolders, and shared folders.

  7. Add contact from email

    The iOS email app has this useful feature. Once an email is received the app offers you the possibility to create a new contact or to edit its details

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. People

    Love this more and more (coming from gmail).

    People sync still deficient vs google. Try to improve 2-way sync.

    Also people should have it’s own bottom tab like it used to. Too much real estate below to merge serach and people. No need and better to be able to go straight of list of people.

    Thanks

  13. Option to keep account contact separate

    I use Outlook for iOS with my work account and a personal account. My personal contacts should not show up when interacting (reply, forward,etc), and the same vice versa.

    I know some people may want it like that but to me is concerning that I may send an email to an incorrect contact.

    Please add an option to keep the separate.

  14. 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.

  18. Contacts

    Why does windows not have a contact app that lets us administer and add new rather than having to use the iPhone contacts app

  19. Sun contacts with IPhone

    Similar To calender, I seem to have to run two sets of contacts. One in iPhone, one in Outlook.
    Perhaps it’s my inability to understand how to import or something but it is very frustrating.
    Thus is supposed to improve my business efficiency not waste my time faffing about trying to find an email address or phone number.
