  1. Allow Customer Manager (CRM) Contacts to be synced with Global Address Book / Global Contacts

    We have six people working in a remote office environment and have to add contacts into our address book all the time. I know we can use the global address to all see them, and add them into our contact list, but I would like to be able to also sync them across the board so if I add a contact to the Contacts, Address Book, or Customer Manager List, then all of my colleagues can see them as well in those respective areas.

    Here is an example:
    I go to a conference, meet with a person who gives me…

  2. See Skype status in Outlook even when Skype is not running in Outlook 2016

    So currently I work mostly on my SAW laptop, which has Skype on the Host OS and Outlook and Skype on the Guest VM OS.

    Here's the catch 22:
    Skype performs best on the Host OS.
    However, Skype must be running on the Guest VM OS in order to have Outlook integration. There are two ways to deal with this:
    1. Run Skype only on the Guest OS
    2. Run Skype on both the Guest OS and Host OS.

    The 2nd option, running two copies of Skype, doesn't work well at all. It gets confusing as to which Skype client…

  5. Please return to previous behaviour of "Search People" - used to get full contact card if name chosen - now select ... and Edit

    Please can MS return to prior behaviour of "Search People" in top right of Outlook window.
    One used to get the FULL contact card directly if one of the names was chosen.
    NOW one gets a menu and "..." and only if clicking on that and selecting "edit" does one get the full card. WHY!? This extra steps, clicks and complexity.
    It was not broken so don't fix it!!!!

  6. people

    Since "contacts" have been replaced by "people", where is the correct place to track businesses, organizations, trusts, or other entities?

  7. Synchronization of contacts between devices

    I am sorry, but I become mad with Outlook.

    As I recently changed my old iPhone to an ASUS ZenFone under Android, I had to install Outlook and all Microsoft tools (OneDrive, Office suite, etc.). For your information, and to avoid creating 50 different email addresses, the one I entered as my ID in Google account is my outlook.com address, to which my contacts and calendar are attached. Since I have the following problems:
    - On my phone the preferred contacts are lost systematically, both in the Phone app and in the left pane summarizing the most important feeds (weather,…

  10. Allow User to choose a Default for Display Name in Address Book

    Allow User to choose a Default for Display Name in Address Book

    Every time I go in to add a contact, I have to update the Display name (which defaults to the email address instead of their name).
    I would like to option to change the default.
    Also, when I Import addresses, it defaults the same way.

  11. Provide a feature to connect V-Cards in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature to connect V-Cards in Microsoft Outlook 2016 like it used to exist in Microsoft Outlook 2010. In Outlook 2010, it was possible to connect two separate contact cards for example a client and their real estate agent and easily open up the other persons card to see who they had been linked up with by double clicking on their name that was linked under notes. We cannot find this feature anywhere in outlook 2016.

  12. Open "Edit Outlook contact" when name pops up in search people by right clicking mouse

    Too many steps to Edit Outlook contact from Search People Window.
    This used to take 2 steps but with new modifications to Outlook its a frustrating 4 steps
    1) Enter name
    2) Click on selection
    3) Click on "..."
    4) Click on "Edit Outlook Contact"

    When entering name in Search people window we should be able to right click on the name in the list to Edit Outlook Contact.

  14. Skype contacts folder

    Please enable the deletion of Skype contacts folder. Now, if you delete it, it is recreated a few seconds later. I don't need it and I prefer that Skype scans my main contacts folder.

    Thank you

  15. See Organization team members again in Contact Card

    Please bring back the ability to see team members under Organization with the new contact card experience. Currently it only shows your manager all the way to the CEO but does not show team members anymore, which is extremely valuable if you need to reach out to other people under the same manager.

  16. Provide an option in People Pane to add Skype for Business Conversations in Outlook 2016

    With O365, conversation history on Skype is kept in a separate folder. To see the complete 'story' of my interaction with someone, it would be better if the 'People Pane' could include the conversation history with that person

  18. Provide a feature that can enable zoom feature in Contacts, Mail, Calendars in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    Provide a feature that can enable zoom feature in Contacts, Mail, Calendars etc. in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as the print is too small to read comfortably. I want to be able to see all of the commands clearly and have the option to zoom in if I need to. Zoom doesn’t seem to work on the ribbon and the commands only within the body of the message.

  20. Adressbuch

    Ich sortiere meine Kontakte nach Nachname, Vorname. Warum werden die Kontakte im Adressbuch trotzdem falsch (Vorname, Nachname) sortiert? Das ist sehr lästig bei geschäftlichen Kontakten und erschwert das Suchen der Adressen beim Schreiben von Emails!
