  2. 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

  3. 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!

  4. Adding contacts: add contact phone # display/entry order

    Currently, the mobile entry field falls AFTER home and work when adding a contact from an iPhone. Would be a time saver to have mobile displayed first since that is what people add!

  9. 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.

  10. Copy all contacts from an email message

    On any email message, there is no ability in Outlook for iOS to select all contacts (i.e. email addresses) from that message (like you can do in Outlook on the desktop version). For example, I wanted to copy all contacts from one message to another by expanding the list of recipients. I tried SELECT ALL and then a copy but it never worked. Please enable this important functionality.

  13. 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.

  14. Ability to Delete a Suggested Contact on Search Tab

    The contacts on the screen when on the search tab are annoying and sometimes I’d like to delete one.

  15. Search GAL

    Please add the ability to search or look up against the Exchange Global Address List.

    It’s embarrassing when I go out on a limb to promote Outlook to my companies only to discover during rollout that Microsoft’s own product can’t search across the GAL while the native apps can.

  16. 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.

  20. Provide ‘Display As’ feature using Outlook, Contacts

    In Outlook for Windows there is a way to set up contacts so that certain text is displayed.
    That way when someone receives an mail they can more easily determine who the mail was sent to.
    ‘Display As’ is already part of Outlook for Windows.
    I’d suggest that these feature be promoted to other platforms, etc.
