Contact List import/export
Importing/exporting support for "Contact List" known by most as "Distribution List". Via individual account. At leas a way to import via csv.
This is a very basic function that should have been included.
I can't even copy/paste because the paste isn't formatted into columns with last and first name separated.
There is another problem in that the Contact List created locally on a Mac does not show up in the cloud and vice versa.
Also, a Contact List can not be shared and this is a problem.
Please add the function to import/export for "Contact List"
Gmail has this function, why OWA does not have yet ?

Please add the function of an address book export and inport.
accept to import via outlook item
please accept to import via outlook item, too.
the best way is the same way to use as PC Outlook.
Remove the 2000 contact limit from import.
Make import as a direct function, ie. without file import/export function. Like google has done.

There should be the option to export contacts as VCS file.
Currently, the only option available is to export contacts as Outlook CSV format.
Please remove the large circles beside names in distribution lists. It explodes the size of your list and forces you to have to scroll to see all the names on the list. It is useless and illogical.

I recommend you nuke Office 365 from orbit. This tool is a complete and unmitigated disaster. Please, I am BEGGING you, for the love of all that is good and holy, stop forcing Microsoft products on your employees. This email inbox is extremely poorly designed, important details are hidden behind one or two menus, the suggestions and recommendations provided are meaningless clutter, and let's not even get started with what a mess Office 365 makes of contacts. Tried to export contacts from Gmail and import them into Office 365 - ended up with 4 duplicates of each contact, unable to delete except by hand, clicking three buttons for each contact. This is completely typical of Microsoft - creating headaches for everyone except the managers who look at pie charts and efficiency metrics.

When I click on a contact, there is an option to add the person's email address to my contacts, however there should also be an option to add that person to a contact list.
I would like an easier way to view, access, and edit contacts.
Make SharePoint > People and Delve viewable as a List.
Make Lists exportable

The Only reason I stayed with Outlook was to manage my Contacts using Categories. Now I cannot export to a tab or csv or import from an excel file. This is completely unusable for working with contacts in other programs, and very disappointing. Looks like I will have to give up using Categories and switch to Google.
Why is it not possible to paste a list of email addresses into the To field of a newly created contact list. It appears that each member has to be added one by one. Surely there are smarter ways to create such lists or at least provide an import function for contact lists.
import from excel docs.
also in the email there is no indication where i can type the subject. it need separation or different colour.

Need to be able to import a contact list from a .csv file format.
I need to add multiple contacts at one time to various groups/distro groups and I cannot find a way to do this without copy/pasting from the to: line in an e-mail. Unfortunately, I lose the additional contact information when I do this.
Can you PLEASE think about your product the way that people actually USE it? I don't need yammer shoved down my throat - I just need to be able to upload a CSV file to a distribution group without wasting my entire day manually going through my contact list when creating new groups. Even if I have to go through a list, let me sort according to the most recently uploaded or by some other field. If there is another way to do this or a workaround, please let me know.
I'm going crazy here.
