  2. Provide a feature to insert an image to a group of contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    è possibile inserire una immagine a un gruppo di contatti?

    Is it possible to insert an image to a group of contacts?

    Avendo più gruppi di contatto mi piacerebbe poter assegnare a ognuno di loro una immagine diversa per riuscire a individuali più facilmente

    Having multiple contact groups I would like to be able to give each of them a different image to make it easier for individuals

  3. Allow the Contact General View from email address right click drop down.

    Old "General View" of a contact instead of a "contact card". Can that be added to the right click drop down over email address?

  9. One Click Macro for Contact Search in Outlook 2016

    I would like a macro on my desktop that I could click and it would open my contacts for a quick name search. I had this years ago but MS changed outlook so it no longer worked.

  11. Pop-up to manage contacts in Outlook 2016

    In Contacts, On the banner above the listings that appear below, the DELETE choice is too close to regularly used choices such as "ADD," "SAVE" or "FORWARD". I recently deleted an entire GROUP by mistake.

    PLEASE at least, include a "Confirm" DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DELETE THIS? or preferably, MOVE the DELETE choice to a more remote place where it is much less likely to be hit by accident. Thank you for consideration.

  12. Provide a feature to overwriting existing contact groups of the same name or give the prompt.

    At the moment, when drag and drop a contact group from an email to "contact" list, it does not erase/update existing contact groups of the same name. We have to delete them manually (prior to dragging the new one, otherwise we get confused about which one is the updated one).
    Would be much simpler if adding a new contact/contact group would overwrite (with a warning) contact/contact groups of the same name.

  14. SMS & MMS messages - names not just numbers

    Since Outlook has my contacts with phone numbers why can't it provide the name, not just the number when I get a text in my inbox

  17. Suddenly in MS Office 365 in Outlook, random Contacts won't allow new entries into the Notes field

    Suddenly in my MS Office 365 in Outlook, random Contacts froze and won't allow me to enter any new additional content into the "Notes" field. I called Microsoft and after 2 hours spoke to a Level 2 Technician whose only resolution was to duplicate the contact, and then it allows me to enter new content into the Notes field again. This is obviously a software upgrade glitch, because I've been using the new Office 365 for 1-1/2 years now and never had this problem before until the last 2 weeks. It happens with random contacts, but is now happening with…

  19. Addon to Outlook 2013 and 2016 (desktop) allowing direct Sync with Android Phones.

    Currently this process is so painful and without and lacks privacy. Most of the time contact categories are lost. iTunes (for iphones) include this feature and is wonderful. However, Android is not supporting such direct option.

    Outlook 2013 users should not be left behind on this. It should be available as an addon to Outlook.
