  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.

    • Contact photos syncing

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

          Hey Everyone!

          Great news! You now have the ability to add, edit and delete contacts right from Outlook on iOS.

          If you want to delete a previously added contact, navigate to the contact section of the app> select a contact> scroll to the bottom of that contact’s card and select “Delete Contact”

        • 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

              • 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 !

                • 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.

                    • IM with TEAMS rather than SKYPE

                      With TEAMS replacing Skype for IM and conferencing, Outlook mobile needs to be able to toggle between the two.

                        • One day birthday shift after sync

                          Outlook has the option to sync contacts to the iPhone internal contact app. That’s very helpful. But there is a problem of sync of birthdays of contacts. After sync the birthday for every contact is one day before the correct day of birth. It would be great to fix this issue. Thanks a lot!

                          • 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.

                                  • Provide ‘Display As’ feature using Outlook, Contacts

                                    In Outlook for Windows there is a way to set up contacts so that certain text is displayed.
                                    That way when someone receives an mail they can more easily determine who the mail was sent to.
                                    ‘Display As’ is already part of Outlook for Windows.
                                    I’d suggest that these feature be promoted to other platforms, etc.

                                    • Give me option to sort people and how to sort

                                      Let me sort people by last name in the iOS app. I can do it on my PC.

                                      • Default Contacts

                                        I have multiple Exchange 365 accounts in Outlook, and when I add a new contact, it defaults into the one account that I don’t want my contacts going into. We have defaults for email and calendar, but not for contacts. Please fix.

                                          There will be long long list you will get if you ask people for suggestions. Just make it work faster instead adding more features. You have to do a survey how many options we use in outlook. Mine is not more than 10 features I use. Don’t waste more time on creating what everyone needs. We already have more than required options to use.
