  1. Share Customer Timelines through OCM with Coworkers

    Even within a MS Business account my coworkers and I cannot access the logged interactions with business contacts within the Outlook Customer Manager even if we select to Share the contact. I have heard that MS once had that feature available within BCM, but has since axed it.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow Customer Manager (CRM) Contacts to be synced with Global Address Book / Global Contacts

    We have six people working in a remote office environment and have to add contacts into our address book all the time. I know we can use the global address to all see them, and add them into our contact list, but I would like to be able to also sync them across the board so if I add a contact to the Contacts, Address Book, or Customer Manager List, then all of my colleagues can see them as well in those respective areas.

    Here is an example:
    I go to a conference, meet with a person who gives me…

  5. Provide simple instructions for enabling printing contact categories with IMAP accounts.

    Once my Pop3 account disappeared, I can no longer print my contact categories. I need this feature. The community instructions are always a bit vague.

  7. archive contacts

    Create a function that can archive contacts that have not been used after a set period of time, to reduce contact folder size. Currently you can only delete or manually store old contact info, if you want to keep on file in case ever needed again in future.

    Since "contacts" have been replaced by "people", where is the correct place to track businesses, organizations, trusts, or other entities?

  10. Open "Edit Outlook contact" when name pops up in search people by right clicking mouse

    Too many steps to Edit Outlook contact from Search People Window.
    This used to take 2 steps but with new modifications to Outlook its a frustrating 4 steps
    1) Enter name
    2) Click on selection
    3) Click on "..."
    4) Click on "Edit Outlook Contact"

    When entering name in Search people window we should be able to right click on the name in the list to Edit Outlook Contact.

  12. Synchronization of contacts between devices

    I am sorry, but I become mad with Outlook.

    As I recently changed my old iPhone to an ASUS ZenFone under Android, I had to install Outlook and all Microsoft tools (OneDrive, Office suite, etc.). For your information, and to avoid creating 50 different email addresses, the one I entered as my ID in Google account is my outlook.com address, to which my contacts and calendar are attached. Since I have the following problems:
    - On my phone the preferred contacts are lost systematically, both in the Phone app and in the left pane summarizing the most important feeds (weather,…

  14. Skype contacts folder

    Please enable the deletion of Skype contacts folder. Now, if you delete it, it is recreated a few seconds later. I don't need it and I prefer that Skype scans my main contacts folder.

    Thank you

  15. Allow User to choose a Default for Display Name in Address Book

    Allow User to choose a Default for Display Name in Address Book

    Every time I go in to add a contact, I have to update the Display name (which defaults to the email address instead of their name).
    I would like to option to change the default.
    Also, when I Import addresses, it defaults the same way.

  16. Provide a feature to connect V-Cards in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to connect V-Cards in Microsoft Outlook 2016 like it used to exist in Microsoft Outlook 2010. In Outlook 2010, it was possible to connect two separate contact cards for example a client and their real estate agent and easily open up the other persons card to see who they had been linked up with by double clicking on their name that was linked under notes. We cannot find this feature anywhere in outlook 2016.

  20. Bulk change "file as" to "company (last,first)"

    Provide a way to select a group or all contacts and change the "file as" to "company (last, first)". I had to export all my contacts to a cxv file and import them again while removing duplicates. Now all the contacts are shown as "last name, first name". I like to have them display by company name first.
