  1. Sort by column in address book

    Address Book window has columns (Name, Title, etc.) but these columns cannot be used to sort results. I work for an organization with tens of thousands of employees and groups. It is absolutely maddening that I can't click to sort results by one of the columns, such as Location or Department.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  13. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Provide a feature to insert an image to a group of contacts in Microsoft Outlook 2016

    è possibile inserire una immagine a un gruppo di contatti?

    Is it possible to insert an image to a group of contacts?

    Avendo più gruppi di contatto mi piacerebbe poter assegnare a ognuno di loro una immagine diversa per riuscire a individuali più facilmente

    Having multiple contact groups I would like to be able to give each of them a different image to make it easier for individuals

  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.
