  1. 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

  2. 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.

  7. 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

  8. VCF

    So, my assistant sends me a vCard for a prospect, using Outlook for Mac, but the outlook app can’t open it? Rather makes calling the suite “Office” seem like a misnomer no? Very surprised that the new Microsoft would allow this deficiency. Please fix. Thanks Guys.

  9. 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!

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.
