  1. Allow users to specify their pronouns.

    Add an official way for users to specify their preferred pronouns - he/him, they/them, etc. Ideally this would be easily changeable, and not require people picking options from a list.

  3. Provide an option to assign colors for incoming emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for easy identification

    Provide an option to assign colors for incoming emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016 for easy identification. Designate my supervisors emails writing in Red as an example. Just being able to assign a font color to a person for incoming mail so they pop out at you. Especially when you receive hundreds of emails a day. I would rather have that then the little color boxes.

  5. Syncing Outlook contacts subfolders with my Android phone

    There is a BIG issue in Outlook / Contacts app on my Android phone. I use Outlook 365 as my main messaging/calendar/contacts tool on my PC. All my contacts are attached to my outlook account. I have created contacts subfolders to sort them (professional, etc.). On my Android phone (8.0), I have installed Outlook, but ONLY THE CONTACTS IN THE MAIN FOLDER ARE VISIBLE! None of the subfolders are visible, whereas they are visible on outlook.com website. Please correct rapidly this unacceptable bug!!! I have seen that many people complain about this bug, which has lasted too long...

  6. Full Outlook Contact Access From Email

    I want to be able to access a full contact record in Outlook from an open Outlook email like you could before Outlook 2013. Ideally I could click on a persons name in an email and a full contact record would open. Instead, starting in Outlook 2013 and in Office 365, a small contact card without full contact management features opens. Some may want it to work the new way, but some may want it to work the old way so there should be a setting on what happens when you click on an email address on the to: or…

  7. Provide a feature or tool to sync and keep synced contacts from Google, Apple etc. in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature or tool to sync and keep synced contacts from Google, Apple etc. in Microsoft Outlook 2016 rather than using different methods to import and sync contacts. Provision of single tool that handles the Contacts Management across all the Email Service Providers would be an added benefit. As everyone today uses Google, Apple or Microsoft, or more likely a combination of these service providers, it is very common to have multiple devices and multiple contacts. A techie at office 365 helped me transfer my Google contacts into Outlook 365 but apparently I have to keep updating manually. Please…

  8. View a Contact's emails, correpsondance from that Contact Folder

    I find it astounding that OUTLOOK doesn't have this feature. When I open up a Contact, I should be able to view all my email correspondence with them without having to go back to the email folder and conduct a search

  15. People View - View Full Notes Section

    Recent update has changed the people view so that the notes section no longer displays in full. To view full notes now have to edit the contact instead.

  16. Add an option to customize the contact's main page in Outlook 2016

    I would like the option to create my own layout of the Contact file. The are items on the 'details' page which I would like on the main page and items on the main page which I don't necessarily need to see to the normal contacts page.
