  4. 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.

  10. Fix the issue PLEASE of when you select more than one Contact and click email to multiple, it picks up the email addresses in Email2 and 3.

    Please fix the issue of the fact that when you select more than one contact, and then click email, it is NOT including the email addresses in Email2 and Email3. It worked in every other version, but not in the 2016. Desperately need that function to work properly.

  11. Option to set the default country region when creating a new contact in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Option to set the default country region when creating a new contact in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Also, when entering an international phone number, in the Phone Details box of a Contact, the drop down for the country code was eliminated in Outlook 2013 and 2016. This was a very useful feature. I now must look up the country code outside of Outlook. Please return this feature.

  12. multiple phone numbers/or preferred number

    Please allow the user to designate preferred contact numbers under people so that when we search the name, the numbers we most frequently use with the individual show up, as opposed to having to arrow into the contact and find the number we want.

  17. make autocomplete available across all email accounts opened in an Outlook session (electively)

    When adding a new account and having a long-standing autocomplete list it would be handy to allow that autocomplete list be shared across the accounts (electively) rather than having to re-enter those
