Business Card Scanning
Have a feature that allows scanning a business card directly into outlook contacts using smart phone camera and field/word recognition.

When do you add a feature to scan business cards?
As a user, I want to be able to attach a file from Genius Scan or any other scanner app.
Today I can only push an attachment into Outlook, but what I would like is to pull in an attachment from the scanner app.
I would like you to try Bric App.
Bric APP can help you not just to scan and digitize cards but also export data to excel and sync to MS Outlook, Google contacts, Phone book & Salesforce. You can also exchange digital cards and share scanned business cards through Bric APP.

The new redesigned card looks awesome. However it would be good to have those items in bold specially title which should come first. Many departments have long name so it's easy to loose the attention and not see the title. What might make sense would be to expand the contact card right below it instead of going all the way bottom.
There are a lot of apps to scan and recognize business card. For example: Business Card Reader Plus https://itunes.apple.com/ru/app/id347345474.
The better support of iPhone contact book is more important.

Agree, need to have this feature integrated between Lens and Outlook. Have the new contacts put into a holding folder for review before integrating into Outlook Contacts.
I could make good use of this with the stacks of cards I have.
I think this feature is already on Lens, but it sends them to OneDrive or OneNote, which isn't where we need them.

Please make it possible to use my business card as my signature
I would like to see outlook, on my phone enable me to take a picture of a business card and categorize it into my contacts to be used by Outlook mail. I know Microsoft Lens does that but I can't get it over onto Outlook. thank you. If Outlook had that feature that would be lovely.

Also automatically link to the person's LinkedIn account, the way it currently works in the Evernote premium app.
I would like more control over my contacts in the mobile Outlook and one of the features I would like to see is the ability to scan documents and business cards into Outlook. If you can access documents through Outlook, why not be able to scan documents into the app as well.

Able to make electronic business card from the apps instead of just the outlook 2007 version. We would be able to send cards via email. It would be very efficient and easily given. Please add that to the app feature. Thank you.

This would be awesome! Scan, upload contact details directly to a contact, pull in LinkedIn info and email your contact info to the other person. Just like Evernote does!

We use Outlook Business Contact Manager (BCM) and it would be really useful to access account and opportunity information via the Outlook app on our mobile devices.
Nick Kemp commented
Those of us who use BCM would seriously welcome a version to work with Outlook Mobile.

A combination with Office Lens, like in OneNote.
Sally Tetting commented
Even persons retired use a card now to communicate all data.
This feature is a great add-on.

I have a good idea for you. Actually it is new business area for Microsoft Outlook. I want to create business card and add/share it via using QR Code Technology in Outlook. It can include my photo, my company name, my company logo, my name, my business e-mail, my business phone, my business title. Also it can be induvidual business card or corporate business card. And also you can give rights to company to create and manage their own official business cards for their employee. Company can create and update this business card according to current conditions. When company update some informations in someone's business card, shared business card must be automatically updated in all the account who added this business card before. And also this business card can include job description. For example, When I get one's promotion, my business title can be changed in business card. By this way, all the people/customer who added my business card can see my updated business card. And you can integrate standart call, online call and instant messaging service in Outlook. This features supports the development of business card usage and marketshare of Outlook in mobile platforms. By this way, we can come to an end of period of physical business cards. This Kind of features can carry you to the future of business app.
