Search for contacts
Would be good if outlook could pickup contacts frequently emailed and pull in the likely phone number or address for that person based on email history. Currently very hard to do this in Outlook App
So I guess all I can do is scroll though contacts. I can’t actually type and search. I have about 7000 but who cares right?
Hi All, i work for Sony and i have an Executive i support in my office, we had to transition him over from native iPhone mail app to outlook as it would cause less sync issues with calendar adds and removals, thank you for that, however, something that would really increase productivity and for this exec to rely on the outlook mobile app, is the ability to search through contacts manually, the list is rather large and he does not necessarily need email threads to be included within the results, so far he’s been having to login to laptop to do that but he has shown his discontent with the lack of Search filters, thanks for your time.
Search feature doesn’t work...simple as that.

It is currently impossible to search for a contact within the contacts database of the iOS version of Outlook. This is endlessly frustrating. Please, PLEASE, consider adding this capability soon.

The current search is almost unusable
V difficult to find contacts
Desktop outlook does this ok
Contacts do not integrate with the iPhone phone dialling
Would LOVE to see a search feature "directly" in the Contacts area.
Yes, I know it's alphabetical on the right hand side.
......but a search box there would be terrific.
If you search for a number, then contacts containing the number or area code etc don't get highlighted.
I don't do it often, but when researching things from an extensive contact list you can search for random data in a contact on a PC, but not on the mobile version.
When using an Office 365 account then the search functionalities should include phone number. For instance if you have missed a call from a colleague but you do not know who it is then you could search for it (provided the information is in the proper fields within your organizations Office 365 tenant)
Add a category under the search feature that allows to search only for contacts info.
Why can’t I get phone number and address from this app?
