  2. Sort a Meeting's Contacts Alphabetically

    Classificar os contatos de uma Reunião por ordem alfabética

    Sort a Meeting's Contacts Alphabetically

    Ao inserir contatos em uma Reunião de Outlook poder visualizar no assistente de agendamento os contatos em ordem crescente ou decrescente. Outra opção seria filtrar contatos para verificar duplicidade de inserção de contatos.

    When you enter contacts in an Outlook Meeting you can view contacts in ascending or descending order in the scheduling wizard. Another option would be to filter contacts to check for duplicate contact insertion.

  4. Save and Close Contact Group Outlook Item should save to contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When some creates an Outlook Item containing a group of contacts and sends it to another person, that person should be able to open up the attachment and click "Save and Close" and have that group of contacts added to the Outlook Contacts.
    Right now you have to drag and drop the attachment over the contacts icon from the mail page of Outlook or save out the attachment then drag it back into Outlook. Save and Close would make much more sense directly from the attachment view plus save time.

  9. Enable colour background in Contacts fields

    Enable the back ground of a Contact to be a different colour [if I choose] so that I can see the Main number, or an alternative contact.

  10. Add to address book via hyperlink

    It would be nice to be able to add to contacts via hyperlinks that are in the body of the email; that way you don't have to read the hyperlink and do a copy and paste in to the address book. Less clicks.

  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.

  13. A simple way to store and edit contacts which the system 'remembers'.

    A simple way to store and edit contacts which the system 'remembers'. I need to be able to 'forget' old addresses, when they are no longer in use. These 'remembered' email addresses don't seem to be stored in the contacts, so are not editable and come up when you begin typing an address, irrelevant of if it is no longer in use, causing emails to be sent to incorrect addresses. A system to show thee 'remembered' addresses and edit them and delete them, please!

  14. Update S/MIME certificates in the Outlook contacts

    The public S/MIME certificates of a business partner are stored in the Outlook contact. If thehe business partner has renewed his or her certificate and sends it in a mail, then the contact should be updated, accordingly.

    Currently you need to export the certificate from the mail and then import it to the contact, which is very complicated.

  16. Sort by column in address book

    Address Book window has columns (Name, Title, etc.) but these columns cannot be used to sort results. I work for an organization with tens of thousands of employees and groups. It is absolutely maddening that I can't click to sort results by one of the columns, such as Location or Department.

  19. Don't allow an Open Contact to save in the "Drafts" folder

    Don't allow an Open Contact to save in the "Drafts" folder. When I'm adding content to the Notes field in a Contact in Outlook, apparently after some time, Outlook saves it as a "Draft". This then ends up with MULTIPLE versions of the SAME contact being saved in "Drafts", and it's difficult to know which is the most recent version. Then when you try to "x" out some of the duplicates in Drafts, it asks you if you want to "save" the Contact draft. When I click "no" (to avoid duplicate files or overwriting the actual more recent version), then…
