Make call from contact
Should have the ability to tap on a number in the contacts to make a call. Also if a call is received from a person in the contacts their name should appear not just their number.

I would add that it would be nice to be able to call from Teams if a user is using Teams Phone. Maybe a selectable option of what to call from? iOS or Teams

Let’s add a feature to Outlook, Outlook Calls.
Simple functionality of being able to make calls to your contacts would be of great value.
Don’t let me confirm three times when I want to call someone saved in my contacts. This does not make any sense
To Whom It May Concern.
It would be really nice if the mobile version of Outlook allowed a user to specify which application should be used to make outgoing calls when clicking on a hyperlinked phone
I envision the application allowing a user to select the native calling application or Microsoft Teams to make an outgoing call.
If there are any questions regarding my request, do not hesitate to contact me.

Calling a contact in the Outlook app takes 5 taps. 1, to tap the person, 2 to select, 3 to tap the number, 4 to Call or Facetime or send message, and 5 to finally just call or cancel. I am requesting to minimize the taps it takes to make a simple call.

Record phone call date, time and length in each Outlook contact. When using an Outlook contact to make a call, record the date/time (and length if possible). Allow for an unlimited number of call logs for up to 2 years. This information is useful for business people to confirm when calls were made to a contact for prospecting or follow up actions. The IOS phone log is very limited.

When I get an email with a phone number, it’s not possible to call them or copy the number. It would be good to be able to add a phone number to a contact, create a new contact or call directly (or via copying the phone number).

When a new number calls it is not simple to save to contact book. If you select save to contacts it is only on the phone and does not go back to outlook
If user can initiate Microsoft Teams chat and call and pstn call by clicking contact on outlook mobile client, it would be very nice.
These two apps are from Microsoft, Both should work seamlessly!
In iPhone XS contacts you can select which line to use to make a call, however all of my contact data is managed by outlook so need this feature please.... if I try to make the change it does not save my selection

Is this still under review? This would be very useful to be set for iOS devices.

Agree with Tom Staight... calling a contact from outlook takes too much effort (4 screentouches needed?!)...

Click to dial from outlook emails
Different colour for email that is current in a thread of emails
Ability to dial from subject heading
Often get message to ring someone and have to write down rather than dial through link

I want to use email to make a phone call instead of using a phone number. I know that sounds crazy.

I am still a HOTMAIL user because of the aesthetic the email is displayed-it was comfortable to me and simple. Now it is too close to Gmail’s format. If I wanted a format like Gmail’s, I would have opened a Gmail account for my personal email.
