  6. Add automatically the salutation in an email.

    It is annoying to write allways the salutation - especially in German mails - . It should come out of a pre-defined field in the contacts.

  8. 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.

  10. 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

  12. show contacts with 'Last Name - Given Name' instead of 'Given Name - Last Name' in People view

    In 'People' view there is no chance to show the contacts in a different way than 'Given Name - Last Name'. I can sort it by Last Name, but the fact that the Given Name stands first makes it uncomfortable to read.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Add "Current Time" as a Field Category for Contacts views

    When viewing Contacts, it would be very helpful to see what the current time for their location. This information would be helpful to know if it is an appropriate time to call, especially if they are in another part of the world and would save a few moment of mental gymnastics trying to remember the number of hours ahead or behind they are relative to my time. And, please, include either an a.m./p.m . option or 24-hour time format.
