  2. Provide an feature to copy email addresses from Contact Lists without importing in Excel and separating names in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Facilitate the copying of email addresses from a distribution list - at the current time, when the contact is copied, it includes the display name. This means you can't copy a group of email addresses into a programme like Doodle (without a boring work around of importing into excel and then separating out the email addresses, yawn)!

  3. Provide an option to change the font color in Contacts for Phone number in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    IN CONTACT I find that the contact phone number should be in other color than blue.

  4. Show presence information from Teams vs Skype for Business in Outlook 2016

    When Skype for Business is running I get people's presence info in outlook. With only Teams running, I do not. Given it's a potential/future replacement for Skype this seems like an important integration point to incorporate.

  6. put back features available with outlook 2007 - in contacts you could find all items connected to contact - email, task, etc

    put back features available with outlook 2007 - in contacts you could find all items connected to contact - email, task, etc. no longer available in 2016

    Also outlook 2007 allowed you to connect contacts - example associates - family - referrals etc. 2016 doesn't let you do that!!!!
    Seems like 2016 is a downgrade

  9. Allow to attach a resume which may be a pdf or Word doc to the corresponding contact in Outlook

    I want to be able to attach a resume which may be a pdf or Word doc to the corresponding contact in Outlook. I want to look up a person in Contacts/People, open the Outlook Contact and then be able to click a link in the contact that would be attached to much more detail in a resume, for example, that is saved on my hard drive in Documents

  10. Standard view people is not displaying what I need

    The recently introduced standard view in people is horrible. It displays the email, one phone number, and one line of notes. Earlier versions displayed much more info, and it saved me a lot of time to open the contact to view the info that I need.

  11. Provide a confirm dialog box when deleting any contact\event\email item etc. in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Whenever we attempt to delete a contact, an event, meeting or any email item in Microsoft Outlook 2016, there should be a dialog box prompting for confirmation before deletion. Or there should be an undo option for accidentally removed contacts or provide an option to recover accidentally deleted contacts. This is more acute when working with the Contact Groups, as the Remove Member is right next to the Add Member. If you hit "remove" by mistake, there is no way to retrieve the deleted entry; undo does not work.

  12. See all contacts on one map

    I love the "Map It" Feature in outlook, but I wish that I could open up a map of my contacts that would show them all on one so that Ican see where they are in relation to each other instead of having to open multiple maps. This would be useful for seeing who is near whom to visit multiple people in one trip.

  18. Provide a feature to automatically add contact to Address Book or Contacts based on emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to automatically add contact to Address Book or Contacts based on emails in Microsoft Outlook 2016. For example we receive an email from a person named John, getting an option to use the Senders email address to add it to contact directly would be an added benefit and would enhance handling of contacts. Also make it possible to store and display all the information in the Address Book including photos of contacts.

  20. LES CATEGORIES DE CONTACT N EXISTENT PLUS . POURQUOI ? COMMENT ?

    LES CATEGORIES DE CONTACTS N EXISTENT PLUS .
    1/ POURQUOI avoir retiré des fonctions utiles professionnellement ?
    2/ utilité : trier un annuaire par catégorie pour faire un envoi groupé ou éditer un annuaire papier de la catégorie (ex : fournisseurs service commande)
    3/ les couleurs pour catégoriser limitent les filtres et n'ont pas une grande signification (si ce n'est le "glossy")
