  2. Being able to FaceTime

    So I’ve these crazy times with kids that don’t have you no real phones and can’t get peoples numbers they can FaceTime And still be able to learn and be able to do it after class because a lot of kids don’t have phones and a lot of kids are connecting with people from their old schools so they wouldn’t be able to see them and stuff like that if you know what I mean you could only do it on computer so I was just going to ask when you can add that feature

  3. Contacts from Sub Contact Groups

    Currently, the iOS app only syncs contacts listed under the main “Contacts” option. I have a few other contact groupings such as Suppliers or Purchasing Agents in the Outlook PC application. This is great as it separates the contacts that I need for a given situation

    **It would be great if the app would include those contacts when syncing the contacts to the phone. I don’t need them to be separated out by their contact group as indicated above, I just need their contact info to be in my phone address book!

  4. Contact card should show out of office status message

    There’s no way to see the out of office status message in a contact card. Either using search or tapping a person from an email header, this is not visible. It should be.

  5. Japanese contacts are sorted incorrectly. They should be sorted by the "Phonetic last name" field.

    Outlook for iOS/iPadOS does not sort contacts with Japanese names correctly in the "People" menu. For example, if the "Last name" field of a contact to "山田", this contact gets sorted under the letter "S", not "Y". I understand that the pronunciation of Japanese names is not predictable just from the kanji, but even when adding the "ヤマダ" into the "Phonetic last name" field, the name is still sorted incorrectly under "S" rather than "Y". This is particularly strange given that setting the "Last name" field to "ヤマダ" does correctly sort the name under "Y". Can this be fixed so…

  7. Show a contact’s automatic reply

    When viewing a contact, show prominently their automatic reply so we know immediately if they’re on vacations or something else, without having to send or even start a message. The Windows version does it when putting that contact as a mail recipient, which should mean that information is easy to obtain and display.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. Suggested contacs

    Please allow users to delete suggested contacts.

    For instance, I want to send an email to a specific “Joe” which I prefer to see him first on the suggestion list. In order to find my “Joe” I have to dig thru other “Joe”s, even with the ones I never sent an email. Most probably those irrelevant “Joe”s are indexed from cc field of other emails which are completely out of my current interest. So, please bring me the ability to see my preferred “Joe” and let me delete the other irrelevant ones on the suggestion list.

    Thanks :)

  15. The ability to Share contacts from mobile device.

    Currently users are unable to share contacts from a mobile device. If you find a contact and press share contact it sends a VCF file that can’t be open from outlook mobile. This is a must have feature for users on the road !

  17. Synch Contact Subfolders

    At the moment only the contacts from the main contact folder are synched to the smartphone.

    We have subfolders under the main contact folder, for example for our CRM system, which must also be available on the smartphone.

    Currently these contents are not displayed in the app and are not synchronized.

  19. Two way connection with iPhone contacts

    Outlook should be able to have a two way connection with iPhone contacts so if you update a contact in the iPhone it also updates in Outlook.
