  1. Full Outlook Contact Access From Email

    I want to be able to access a full contact record in Outlook from an open Outlook email like you could before Outlook 2013. Ideally I could click on a persons name in an email and a full contact record would open. Instead, starting in Outlook 2013 and in Office 365, a small contact card without full contact management features opens. Some may want it to work the new way, but some may want it to work the old way so there should be a setting on what happens when you click on an email address on the to: or…

    • Sub sort contacts

      You used to sort each category by name. Now, when I order my contacts by category, the names are in random order, and I can't find what I want to find. You need to put that back the way it was. I have a lot of contacts, and some of my categories are quite large. I want my contacts by category, then in alphabetical order by name.

        • Bring back employees current location in their contact card.

          Our company used this often to determine an employee's current physical location quickly for years, but it was since removed in the latest update.

          Please bring it back as its removal is slowing down our collaboration.

            • See Organization team members again in Contact Card

              Please bring back the ability to see team members under Organization with the new contact card experience. Currently it only shows your manager all the way to the CEO but does not show team members anymore, which is extremely valuable if you need to reach out to other people under the same manager.

                        Provide a feature to copy contact information and create a new contact in Microsoft Outlook 2016 e.g. if adding several new contacts who all work for the same company as it would be much easier to copy the first contact's info and edit from there.

                          • Merging Outlook "Account"

                            My laptop originally came with Windows 8 as its Operating System. When Windows 10 was released I installed it immediately, not problems, plus I really enjoyed the new UI. Everything was working just fine until the Windows 10.3 update came alone.

                            I installed it of course. Over the course of the first 2 weeks my computer would stall after 3 hours. A couple more weeks it 2 weeks. I was starting to loose work. In the next 6-8 weeks it became so bad that as soon as the main UI page appeared, windows would stall.

                              • Separate "Delete" from "Save & Close" in Contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                Separate "Delete" from "Save & Close" in Contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016 on the ribbon as It is way too easy to click on delete rather than save and close when creating or editing important contacts. And when that happens, all of the contact's notes are gone permanently. Make the Delete button less accessible and if the delete button is pressed - add a dialogue box asking if you really want to delete the contact.

                                  Provide the ability to specify which columns are printable for a Category. Alternative: Provide more than one printable phone list - Business, Relatives, Friends, Club #1 Members, etc. - each may have differing printable columns. (Our house uses 3-differing phone lists on our refrigerator.)

                                      • Provide a feature that can enable zoom feature in Contacts, Mail, Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

                                        Provide a feature that can enable zoom feature in Contacts, Mail, Calendars etc. in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as the print is too small to read comfortably.

                                          Provide a feature to enable users to create own contact list and send it to specific people in Microsoft Outlook 2016 or shared contacts and adding an option to add Skype would be an added benefit. Also enable users to save groups created in Skype to be saved as Group Contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016.
