  1. Outlook office 365 contact form: Today we communicate & connect @/online/IM. Yet, no entry fields for @/social media/IM, etc.

    Outlook office 365 contact form: Today we communicate & connect @/online/IM. Yet, no entry fields for @/social media/IM, etc. - Mobile/landline/IM/social media is relevant - NOT pager/radio/telex, etc. We should be able to have these connection/contact details in our contacts list and on hand if need be, under the drop down fields under the contact tab in the form... These forms still feel 1990's...please redesign with today's user in mind...the time has come...

  3. Bulk change "file as" to "company (last,first)"

    Provide a way to select a group or all contacts and change the "file as" to "company (last, first)". I had to export all my contacts to a cxv file and import them again while removing duplicates. Now all the contacts are shown as "last name, first name". I like to have them display by company name first.

  4. Provide a way for editing e-mail address in contacts: now you can just replace it

    Sometime I have to modify a badly entered e-mail address. Now you can just cancel and replace with the correct one.
    It would be helpful/nice to have the possibility to edit it directly without the need for an external text editor.

  7. Bring back the ability to edit and copy cells of contacts from within the "Card View".

    In Outlook 2010 I used to be able to copy numbers and addresses from cells in contacts from within the "Card View" without having to open the Contact entirely. It was very convenient and expedient to work this way. Please bring this option back.

  8. Add Conact to the Email Being Composed from the Contact Card I am Looking at

    Sometimes I want to add a contact to the email I am composing now, by browsing contact cards. Example scenarios are:
    - Getting to an existing recipient's manager, or
    - Picking a contact from a distribution list, or
    - Using existing recipient's membership to open DL contact card, and them pick somebody else on that DL.

    In all these scenarios, I have an open contact card on top of an email being composed, and I want to add the contact to the email recipients. Currently the only way is to copy email address from the contact card and paste it…

  9. quickbooks 2018 customer add-in

    Quickbooks 2018 has an add-in for syncing clients with existing Outlook contacts. PERFECT application but simply won't work without crashing Outlook 2016. I can't seem to find a fix for this. Interface should be much simpler with Outlook

  13. Skype Time Zone in Outlook 2016

    It'd be nice in Skype if it could should show the time zones your contacts are in next to people's names, both so that you aren't bringing someone something complicated at their end of day, and many people leave themselves 'available' all hours with their mobile devices but as a West Coast person I'd prefer not to interrupt East Coast colleagues in the evenings.

  18. UK address parsing in outlook

    Read a UK address properly. (I was at he launch of an early SM mail product in the UK [Andrew Less was PM] where he demonstrated draggin a UK postal address into the contacts and it was parsed. Since then it HAS NEVER worked. The product is unable to make ven a vaugeul sensible attempt at reading a UK address - it fails to see the post (zip) code even which must require almost 0 AI ability.
    The fact that you seem to miss is that Uk addresses to do not always require a County (state). When the city (or…
