Don't Show Duplicate Contacts
Option to turn off contacts sync when you have multiple email providers. Without this option you get lots of duplicate entries in your contacts in outlook. At present lack of this facility stopping me using this app,
I have multiple contact folders with my Office 365 email account. I only want to sync one of them to Outlook on my iOS device. The built-in contacts app in iOS allows this. Please add it to Outlook.
Hello Outlook Team,
The People section is a mess, there is no way to manage People section. I have six email accounts in my Outlook app and there isn't any options to select the contact accounts that I want and disable the ones that I don't need. Now I have several duplicate contacts. Please find a way to manage and organize People section. Thanks

Pls add ability to enable/disable display of contacts from email accounts.

May I suggest the merge duplicated contacts similar to what google contacts have where they could find and merge? Thanks

Online, I've created folders to organise mu contacts...but in the app, there are no folders. Instead, I have duplicated contacts!!! Please fix this!

Please implement. This is the only reason I don't use the contacts feature in outlook. It is essentially useless while managing multiple accounts with some duplicate contacts between them. At a minimum, the ability to turn off display of contacts from certain accounts would be nice.

God yes. I sync my contacts via Outlook, iCloud and Gmail which means in the app I have every contact show up 3 times. Come on guys.

It would be useful to be able to select which accounts the contacts are shown from and/or synced with. I have contacts in both an exchange server and gmail (many of which are duplicates) and it would be helpful to select only one account to show contacts from while still using both accounts for email. Thanks.

There should be possible to choose which account's contacts (and calendars, for that matter) we'd like to use. This way we could avoid duplicates.
A configuration like the iPhone's settings would do. There we could choose whether we'd like to sync each account's contacts and calendars or not.

Please add an option to filter outlook account contacts and other non-outlook accounts. I don't need my personal contacts in the app if only using the app for a business account.

I don't use gmail contacts but I have some. Currently the app pulls them in. Would be nice to be able to turn them off by account to avoid duplicates and redundant contact.

When you have multiple accounts on the app, it lists all the contacts for each account together. It would be nice to be able to view each individual account's contacts separately.

For multiple email accounts, it currently doesn't allow you to choose which accounts to pull contacts from. It just pulls contacts from all accounts that have been setup.
I prefer to just use contacts from only one email account. I have multiple email accounts but only want to add and manage contacts from one place.

Have an option to merge or link like named contacts from several email accounts into one contact. This will allow the contacts to be much cleaner and more useful
I have many duplicate names on my people list and there is no way to link all of them to one name, like in Apple contacts or Google Contacts. I think this would be a great feature to add to Outlook.

Outlook for iOS should provide a way for us to toggle on and off contacts for each account individually.
I have all my contacts centralized on Google but I do have them copied to my iCloud via another service as a backup and since I have both accounts configured in Outlook for iOS my contacts list is full of duplicates.

It seems that my contact folders in my full Outlook client are getting merged in my Outlook iOS client so they are merged on my phone. It would be nice to keep the same view.
Michele Molinaro commented
It will be great it outlook could delete duplicate contacts especially with Google contacts!!!

I have linked my Outlook.com account with Facebook, as a consequence my Facebook accounts do appear in my Outlook.com contacts too. On outlook.live.com I spent some time to link the different accounts to make sure they appear only once but these links don't sync to Outlook for iOS and on the phone some of my contacts do appear multiple times now.

I've been waiting for this for a long time. I migrated from Gmail to exchange but still use Gmail for certain things so now I have dupes in the people list.
