  1. Delete in People

    I think it would be great to be able to delete Contacts directly from the People's feature

    Thanks

    • Put back the contacts link in the bottom bar

      Getting to contacts is not intuitive

      • 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.

        • 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

          • Clean list of suggestions and contact

            Make it possible to clear the list of suggestions and delete an unwanted contact that appears even after all your emails are deleted.

            Thanks in advance.

            • New Contacts - auto add contacts signature data

              A feature that I'm strongly missing is the recognition of signature information from an email of a new contact. Currently when setting up a new contact every bit of contact information needs to be filled in manually, something not doable and annoying in particular on the go. Contacts are key to very much every business and I strongly believe that adding this feature to this app will increase its download massively. So many people complaining about this and make them stick to the native iOS mail.

              • Address book edit

                Want to directly edit outlook addressbook on iPhone. It’s so complicated to do this now.

                  • Contact Origin clarity

                    I cannot tell what if the contact is in my exchange folder, versus my phone, hotmail,
                    etc. It makes cleaning my contacts hard and I have 100s of duplicates right now!

                      • Summary of participants that has accepted and rejected

                        We sometimes have big meetings and I would appreciate if I look at the follow up on answers if there could be a summary at the bottom on how many accepted, rejected and chose tentative.
                        Thank you in advance!

                        • Client profiles

                          I use outlook to book my dog grooming appts. I would LOVE an area to put client profiles. So I can see how many appts they’ve made, when I’ve seen them last, etc.

                            Search the entire contact from exchange online. I don’t sync contacts with my contact list on my phone so rely exchange online contacts to call customers.

                                There's been too many times when I've almost put a personal contact into a work email because autocomplete has both contact stores. Please allow me to decouple them so that I don't accidentally divulge corporate information to my friends :)

                                  In People tab, there should be option of filtering messages in To, cc or From, for that person.

                                        IOS Contact app is quite simple, it would be great to take advantage of it and offer an option to manage contacts.
