  1. Integrate with iPhone favorite contacts

    Customize notifications so that only emails from favorite contacts are notified. I don’t want to get distracted by a notification from non-important sources

  2. Sync contact photos to iOS contacts

    I have contact photos in Outlook on iOS and I sync my contacts to my device, however the photos do not sync. If you add photos in the native contacts app they are removed when Outlook syncs the contacts on each load.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Easily add contact info on my phone

    If I use the Apple app for email and contacts, they sync perfectly with outlook exchange, but I've not been able to manage contacts properly since moving to the exchange app

  13. 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.

  14. In People information there is not Assistant name information or her phone

    Only the GAL contacts in the Address Book of the Outlook for Windows, are visible the information about Assistant name and Assistant phone. In the old OWA, the new OWA, Outlook App for iOS or Android, or even in Outlook for MAC, you can not see this information. It's very important for the Faculty and Executive people in a big companies.

  19. 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!
