  1. 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.

  3. Pop-up to manage contacts in Outlook 2016

    In Contacts, On the banner above the listings that appear below, the DELETE choice is too close to regularly used choices such as "ADD," "SAVE" or "FORWARD". I recently deleted an entire GROUP by mistake.

    PLEASE at least, include a "Confirm" DO YOU REALLY WANT TO DELETE THIS? or preferably, MOVE the DELETE choice to a more remote place where it is much less likely to be hit by accident. Thank you for consideration.

  5. SMS & MMS messages - names not just numbers

    Since Outlook has my contacts with phone numbers why can't it provide the name, not just the number when I get a text in my inbox

  6. Addon to Outlook 2013 and 2016 (desktop) allowing direct Sync with Android Phones.

    Currently this process is so painful and without and lacks privacy. Most of the time contact categories are lost. iTunes (for iphones) include this feature and is wonderful. However, Android is not supporting such direct option.

    Outlook 2013 users should not be left behind on this. It should be available as an addon to Outlook.

  8. show contacts with 'Last Name - Given Name' instead of 'Given Name - Last Name' in People view

    In 'People' view there is no chance to show the contacts in a different way than 'Given Name - Last Name'. I can sort it by Last Name, but the fact that the Given Name stands first makes it uncomfortable to read.

  9. Suddenly in MS Office 365 in Outlook, random Contacts won't allow new entries into the Notes field

    Suddenly in my MS Office 365 in Outlook, random Contacts froze and won't allow me to enter any new additional content into the "Notes" field. I called Microsoft and after 2 hours spoke to a Level 2 Technician whose only resolution was to duplicate the contact, and then it allows me to enter new content into the Notes field again. This is obviously a software upgrade glitch, because I've been using the new Office 365 for 1-1/2 years now and never had this problem before until the last 2 weeks. It happens with random contacts, but is now happening with…

  12. A simple way to store and edit contacts which the system 'remembers'.

    A simple way to store and edit contacts which the system 'remembers'. I need to be able to 'forget' old addresses, when they are no longer in use. These 'remembered' email addresses don't seem to be stored in the contacts, so are not editable and come up when you begin typing an address, irrelevant of if it is no longer in use, causing emails to be sent to incorrect addresses. A system to show thee 'remembered' addresses and edit them and delete them, please!

  13. Update S/MIME certificates in the Outlook contacts

    The public S/MIME certificates of a business partner are stored in the Outlook contact. If thehe business partner has renewed his or her certificate and sends it in a mail, then the contact should be updated, accordingly.

    Currently you need to export the certificate from the mail and then import it to the contact, which is very complicated.

  14. Contact Ranking System- 1 through 5 star

    Allow a one through five star ranking system for all contacts so the user can rank them in order of importance. The categories are helpful however assigning an importance level within a category would be a nice feature.

  16. Don't allow an Open Contact to save in the "Drafts" folder

    Don't allow an Open Contact to save in the "Drafts" folder. When I'm adding content to the Notes field in a Contact in Outlook, apparently after some time, Outlook saves it as a "Draft". This then ends up with MULTIPLE versions of the SAME contact being saved in "Drafts", and it's difficult to know which is the most recent version. Then when you try to "x" out some of the duplicates in Drafts, it asks you if you want to "save" the Contact draft. When I click "no" (to avoid duplicate files or overwriting the actual more recent version), then…

  18. Add "Current Time" as a Field Category for Contacts views

    When viewing Contacts, it would be very helpful to see what the current time for their location. This information would be helpful to know if it is an appropriate time to call, especially if they are in another part of the world and would save a few moment of mental gymnastics trying to remember the number of hours ahead or behind they are relative to my time. And, please, include either an a.m./p.m . option or 24-hour time format.

  19. resize contact editor

    Allow Outlook 2016 Contact Editor window to be resized and include scroll bars. On my 12.5" laptop screen the Contact Editor window is too tall and it is not resizable. The bottom of the contact record is not visible below the horizon and the window has no scroll bars. The only way I can access that portion of the record is to minimize the ribbon.
