  3. Me Contact for All Microsoft Accounts

    Good evening
    I have suggested previously, and my request was granted by outlook.com Administrator, to allow editing contacts in Outlook; thank you.
    Now is another problem arises on an IOS system which is a serious incompatibility with Outlook Contacts. Outlook doesn’t have A “Me” contact to exist, otherwise “Me” becomes a buddy and a friend. However, Apple is based on the “Me” Contact which resides in the Contacts.
    Outlook sees “Me” in the Contacts but a singularity is unavoidable. So, when will Outlook and Outlook.com will fix this problem for non-Exchange non-Corporate clients which are by default include everyone with…

  9. Profile

    You should really add a profile or 'about me' feature as I'm no longer happy with my profile but it won't let me change it. You should also work on letting the person choose what they want to show to people rather than automatically choosing what their profile says.

  10. Need to sync to Exchange GAL!!

    Outlook on iOS does not sync GAL (Global Address List) for exchange to people tab of app.

    This is a major lack of functionality for Exchange users. I would have thought this is P1 feature you would not ship without!!!

  11. Contacts as attachment

    Why can't we attach contacts in an email to share them with in a reply or forward VS having to share only from with the contacts card itself?

  14. Don't Show Duplicate Contacts

    Option to turn off contacts sync when you have multiple email providers. Without this option you get lots of duplicate entries in your contacts in outlook. At present lack of this facility stopping me using this app,

    Should search entire contact info. Like the iOS contacts app.

  17. Recognize signatures from senders and save to contacts

    Offer the ability, like in Apple's Mail app and several others, to save signature details from a sender to a new contact card. (Same goes for appointments to calendar, which I'll submit separately.)

  18. Work/school/business contacts

    This would be a feature where say you search your work, school, or business, you can both join and contact others associated with that specific group. This would benefit anyone who would like to contact someone from their work or business if they do not know their contact information, allowing them to quickly resort to the group contacts. Receiving a code or something of the like would be great in relations to security reasons with contact information. Each group would have their own code and you would need it to join and access the groups contacts.

  19. Contact sort by Company

    It would be great to be able to sort contacts in the app by "company"....like you're able to do online. That would really help, specially when it's an infrequent contact and you can just scroll to see where their company roster is.
