  2. Provide an option of creating 'Groups' and then make it easy to 'drag & drop' from address book and group contact designate TO and CC

    Provide an option of creating 'Groups' and then make it easy to 'drag & drop' from address book in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Also, I am creating a Contact group but assigning who it goes TO and who is CC’d. I have a lot of different groups that I email regularly, but I need to be able to separate out the teams that it needs to be addressed TO and who only needs to be copied on the email. Right now I have it set up as Routing TO, and another one for Routing CC.

  4. 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.

  5. Showing the Phonetic name field in the address book regardless of the Language Settings

    The Phonetic name field should show what we actually entered in that field regardless of the Language Settings. It does not show what is expected to be shown when the Language Settings of the Outlook client is set to a language other than Japanese. It is inconvenient because I would like to use this field to show a short description of a user when viewing the address book in a language other than Japanese on Outlook.

    This feedback is based on a customer voice from support SR.

  6. Outlook as Message Centre for all platforms

    Outlook for ALL kinds of messages on computer. E-Mail becomes less and less important. Outlook should be able to handle messages from Facebook, Whats App, Twitter, Linked In ... etc.

  7. Option to export auto complete list of contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016.

    Provide an option to export the email addresses that are not saved in contacts and the contacts that show up in the auto-complete suggestion list and also provide an option to easily save the auto-complete addresses into contacts, so that it could be made possible to export the auto-complete list of contacts easily in Outlook 2016. Also option to display full list of the “Recent People” when composing an email as it is more efficient to use it rather than looking at just 5 contacts.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
