  1. Block an account

    I’d like to block an account to avoid any e-mails from it. I asked for support, but they replied that it is only available on webmail. I think it’s better to be done also on mobile applications.
    Thanks.

  2. Contact photos syncing

    The outlook client will hold contact photos. Can these be synced to the phone contacts when sending contacts to the phone

  3. Contacts from Sub Contact Groups

    Currently, the iOS app only syncs contacts listed under the main “Contacts” option. I have a few other contact groupings such as Suppliers or Purchasing Agents in the Outlook PC application. This is great as it separates the contacts that I need for a given situation

    **It would be great if the app would include those contacts when syncing the contacts to the phone. I don’t need them to be separated out by their contact group as indicated above, I just need their contact info to be in my phone address book!

  5. The ability to Share contacts from mobile device.

    Currently users are unable to share contacts from a mobile device. If you find a contact and press share contact it sends a VCF file that can’t be open from outlook mobile. This is a must have feature for users on the road !

  7. Rename “people” to “contacts”

    I don’t only have “people” in my address book. I have many businesses listed as well. They aren’t technically “people” are they? 😉
    “People” can also be confusing to some users.

    Also, the address book really needs an upgrade. Even the default iOS contacts app is miles ahead.

  8. Allow the mobile app to access contacts subfolders and shared folders

    In the Outlook desktop app and the OWA, I have my default contacts folder, but also subfolders and folders of contacts that are shared with me. The Outlook mobile app (iOS, but maybe android too?) only allows access to the main contacts folder. Please allow the mobile app to access all my contacts folder, subfolders, and shared folders.

  11. Add Caller Identification feature on iOS

    Allow the Outlook app to use the GAL, as well as Mailbox Contacts, for Caller Identification, similar to the LinkedIn app on iOS.

    Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification

  13. 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

  15. VCF

    So, my assistant sends me a vCard for a prospect, using Outlook for Mac, but the outlook app can’t open it? Rather makes calling the suite “Office” seem like a misnomer no? Very surprised that the new Microsoft would allow this deficiency. Please fix. Thanks Guys.

  16. Contact management in Outlook app

    It would be nice to have the ability to manage contacts (add, edit, delete) from the Outlook app on iOS and Android no matter if you use Exchange online or Exchange 2016.

  17. Synch Contact Subfolders

    At the moment only the contacts from the main contact folder are synched to the smartphone.

    We have subfolders under the main contact folder, for example for our CRM system, which must also be available on the smartphone.

    Currently these contents are not displayed in the app and are not synchronized.

  20. Contacts - send to a group

    I can’t seem to find the ability to select a group of contacts that are in my PC’s Outlook to send an email to all of them?
