  4. Retire the Telex or Pager fields - update to add Personal and Business Mobile

    I can't imagine there are many people or businesses that still use Telex or Pagers. However, increasingly these days many people have Business and Personal mobile phones. Would it make sense to add these categories to the Phone numbers field in Outlook?

  5. Provide a feature to search recipient email address automatically if we enter phone number in Microsoft Outlook 2016 when composing emails

    At present , if we put user name or user id in outlook for enterprises , we can search the e mail address for the recipient. Provide an option to search and display the email address of the recipient if we enter mobile number of the recipient in TO / CC / BCC field, with Control K option , provided the contact has been stored by entering all the information including phone number(s).

  6. Improve outlook search result contact card

    Some time ago, the contact Information shown were helpfull. Then - whyever - you changed this to an useless sytle - devided into two screens.

    If you search for a contact and select the entry, you will see a lot of space and only some informaton.

    For the needed Information, you have to click Always on >

    Everything from there could and *should* be displayed on page 1.

    Generally, it is unclear which Information are shown on page 1. Somtimes phone, sometimes mobile, sometimes both ...

    Please let the user customzite the first screen to display more or better all…

  7. Add ability to search all email for a contact under "Activities" as in Outlook 365

    Other Outlook versions provide ability to search all email exchanges with a contact in Contacts by selecting "Activities" search. It very convenient and fast for finding discussions, attachments, etc. Searching through all emails for a subject, contact, word, etc., is ok, but not as business useful. Thanks.

  8. Add "notes" to the people pane under "meetings"

    Add "notes" to the people pane under "meetings". This would be helpful to see what you last discussed per phone conversations.

  14. Allow the Contact General View from email address right click drop down.

    Old "General View" of a contact instead of a "contact card". Can that be added to the right click drop down over email address?

  15. Download pdf versions of business cards as business cards

    Download pdf versions of business cards for a business card in Outlook. It could pull the info off the business card and enter it into an Outlook business card.

  17. Save and Close Contact Group Outlook Item should save to contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    When some creates an Outlook Item containing a group of contacts and sends it to another person, that person should be able to open up the attachment and click "Save and Close" and have that group of contacts added to the Outlook Contacts.
    Right now you have to drag and drop the attachment over the contacts icon from the mail page of Outlook or save out the attachment then drag it back into Outlook. Save and Close would make much more sense directly from the attachment view plus save time.

  18. One Click Macro for Contact Search in Outlook 2016

    I would like a macro on my desktop that I could click and it would open my contacts for a quick name search. I had this years ago but MS changed outlook so it no longer worked.

  19. Provide a feature to overwriting existing contact groups of the same name or give the prompt.

    At the moment, when drag and drop a contact group from an email to "contact" list, it does not erase/update existing contact groups of the same name. We have to delete them manually (prior to dragging the new one, otherwise we get confused about which one is the updated one).
    Would be much simpler if adding a new contact/contact group would overwrite (with a warning) contact/contact groups of the same name.
