Support .vcf attachments
We have the same problem to open a VCF in the Outlook-App (iOS). I have to change hunderds of iPhone User from Mail to Outlook App. It should be possible to open and safe a new VCF-file with the smartphone. thank you for your efforts and fixing the problem as soon as possible.

please make "VCF card usage" happen in Outlook-App soon. After we migrated hundreds of iPhone User from Mail-App to Outlook-App we are now having unhappy users. They lost - escpecially supervisors and salespeople - a great opportunity to work with "received vcf cards".
Please take this topic as a high prio. They dont understand this and are they complaining to us (IT) & Microsoft.

We have a significant number of users that only have company issued Apple devices, mostly iPhones, with that being their only mode of communication. The inability of of the Outlook Mobile app to support .vcf attachments is a major hindrance to sharing contacts with others in the organization.

Wow, this is a glaring oversight. The only way to share contacts with .vcf files is to rely on the iPhone native contacts app.
Evan Bartley commented
Currently, there is no way for a user to easily share a contact with another user that isn't using the Desktop version of Outlook. The Outlook app should be able to open a .vcf or vCard and "Add to Outlook Contacts"
Please enable this.
This does not make sense. Outlook and Outlook Mobile are Microsoft products that don't talk to each other????
unbelievable this is not support yet
It’s incredible that vcf is not supported!
And I use Office Premium Business
The Office Lens app allows for scanning a business card; this is great. However, I use Outlook as my Contacts “authority” and need to be able to open and/or import that generated .vcf file in the iOS Outlook app. As of 2020.03.14 it does not allow this.
Open and save vcf cards send from other devices using Microsoft outlook
This would a valuable tool as it would make it easy to share contacts with field based coworkers. Currently I have to come up with a work around to open these attachments in Apple’s Mail app. This defeats the purpose of me deleting their app and solely using outlook. Please come up with an update that would support this and keep Outlook’s usability up.

To import a .vcf from Outlook:
Open message containing .vcf
Hit the Share button in the upper right
Share File via..
Copy to Contacts (you may have to scroll to the right)
This is the most ridiculous thing that I have experienced since moving to the Outlook App on my I phone. Come on get with the program and push a fix through so we can open .vcf files

Please fast-track this feature.
Business users need this feature. Please expedite.

Without this feature you are not truly iPhone compatible
Outlook as Pc version and web app are able to read and save contact data in .vcf format. Please implement this function in Outlook for iOS, too. Thank you.

Forward the vcf to Gmail where it will open just fine and save to contacts.

This makes it very difficult to transition users from native mail on iOS to Outlook Mobile. If there are any workarounds, it would be great to know! Thank you.
When is this feature going to be available???
