  1. Import contacts from iCloud

    Allow outlook to import contacts directly from iCloud. It looks like it should work as there is the option that come up, Import to outlook but then you only get the first contact. I opened up the file with excel and can see the other contacts. with 1400 contacts doing them one at a time is a non starter.

    If you are not going to get this working then icloud exports contacts don't make import to Outlook an option.

      • Enable to show Global Address List in contacts pane

        OWA can show Address Lists of my organization under "Directory". It is better to find someone or some gruop across my contacts and my organization in a view. Please consider to integrate OWA feature and Outlook feature.

          • Options to store and display Contact details with all the information.

            Phone numbers stored and displayed should include all the information in Microsoft Outlook 2016 which include area code and the country code not just the local number.

            In Microsoft Outlook 2010, it was possible to configure the application to automatically format a phone number. This automatic formatting included adding the country code.

            This feature is useful and gives us the ability to have Outlook automatically format phone numbers completely.

                • Add companies as separated entities in contacts

                  Separate entity for companies, with contacts linked to them. The administration of general phone numbers and mail addresses becomes a lot easier and the module people and contacts a lot more performant. Also provide an option to add customized fields for Contacts.

                    • Contact Activity Tracker

                      Please bring back the Contact Activity Tracker, and make it better with new features like integration with LinkedIn or whatever. I need the ability to see all sent and received messages from a contact.

                      Outlook could be so much better (and actually were better, because these functions were available in older versions). Who needs or wants a CRM? Facebook destroys the argument that this feature should be removed from Outlook, so that Microsoft can sell more Dynamics licenses. Facebook gives this feature away for free.

                          • Merge contacts

                            When you enter a spouse's name, it should provide suggestions from your contact list, so if you have both partners in your contacts, it will link them as a married couple. That would make it nice for reminders about anniversaries if it would then give you one reminder for both people. Additionally, then if you're looking at a person's contact card on your phone, it could give you a link to their spouse.
