  1. 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!!!

  2. 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?

  5. 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,

  7. Organization Hierarchy in People

    Like in PC outlook, we need to see organization tab for contacts so we would know both direct reports and reporting to.

    Thanks,

  8. 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.)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  13. Forward a contact from Outloook app

    Can you add the feature to forward a contact from the phone or tablet app to another person? This is very important with coworkers and improves efficiency rather than having to re-enter all the info.

    This would be good to add in conjunction with adding/deleting/editing contacts on mobile platforms.

  15. Contacts

    I represent a large population of Intune users (20,000+) and want to pass along one of our pain points. After installing Intune on iOS devices it seems that when any new contact is added in the native address book it always associates this contacts with the company rather than personal. This is done through iOS grouping of contacts. This happens even when the contact is created in the native address book. The problem is when Intune is removed it will remove all of those contacts if the user does not choose to keep them. While we can mitigate this with…

  16. InTune MAM need to allow paste in new contact

    While Outlook is under MAM policy for Restrict cut, copy and paste with other apps = Policy managed apps with paste in

    E-mail address or name copy from body of the e-mail cannot be pasted to Name or e-mail in a new contact.

    I can copy from another other apps to Outlook contacts, but I am not allow to copy within Outlook to Outlook contacts.

    I cannot even copy a name a just typed from First name to Last name.

  17. Second contact numbers

    Contacts in our gal only show primary contact numbers in the outlook app most users in our company have 2 mobiles numbers, we need to display on the outlook contact primary and secondary contact numbers for land line and mobile. Outlook for desktop shows all details correctly. Just the app for mobile doesn’t.

  20. New Contact Phone Type Default

    Happy that we can now create and edit contacts from Outlook on iOS. Thanks! When adding a phone number for the contact, the phone type defaults to Home Fax. This should be changed to Mobile or allow selecting the default phone type.
