        Contacts need to have coordinate boxes for Latitude and Longitude. This would allow finding a location that does not necessarily have an address. We have a spreadsheet of telemetry sites that we could make a contact list of and be able to use Google maps for directions to these sites.

        Twitter is there but no others.
        Facebook, Facebook Business, Google Plus & Circles, Linkedin, etc..
        Without these features, Outlook become redundant

        I agree. And don't forget to include LinkedIn. Currently, I'm using the notes section to add these details.

        Long needed idea! Make other services (eg. Facebook) Contacts details editable - currently R/O, enable to add additional fields that you can save

        Add Facebook and Twitter fields and add additional Phone fields. Add a Custom phone field. Need a field for extensions and for auto dial numbers - like account numbers etc to get past all robotic voice prompts

        Bring back the Social Media integration, with the ability to view any cirrent activity. I don't want to use Outlook.com or that awful Mail app, because I can't navigate or customize as I can in Outlook, which has a much richer sense of interconnectedness of Tasks, Calendar, Contacts, etc. Also - why can you not change certain mail destination folders from C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local... I like to keep my stuff elsewhere. It'd be nice to have the option to save the *.ost files in with my collective *.pst file

        Please add linked contacts like in Windows phone to incorporate facebook, linkedin, twitter, and other accounts.
