  1. 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…

  2. when clicking on show more contact info in outlook, allow select and copy

    after a search, click on result you like, you cannot drag the cursor to copy address or phone or anything in case you want to copy and paste it somewhere else. seems counter-intuitive.

    come to think of it, what I'm always trying to do is add "location" and contact info to a calendar appt. seems like this should be much easier.

  3. Outlook Contact Group Exportation

    Two things:
    1. I would like to be able to export an individual Outlook Contact Group to Excel as a .csv and have every field be included in the export without having to export all of my Outlook Contacts.


    1. If this isn't possible then I would like to be able to use the "File/Save As" feature in the Outlook Contact Group window to save my Contact Group as a .txt file, open it in Excel, save as a .csv or .xlsx, and be able to see more fields from the export than just "Name" and "Email".

  5. Have contacts automatically re-assign the city and/or Zip/postal code into the correct fields as you type

    Seems like we are missing some great pre-emptive search technology when it comes to entering in addresses by hand into contacts. Outlook should be able to guess when I'm typing a zip code or postal code and put in in the right field. Same for city and State. Let's have some auto-populating going on like we see with other Windows products.

  12. 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.

  13. Monthly View = needs to show appoints (regardless of time)

    Monthly View = needs to show appoints (regardless of time) rather than +#; I even have +1 shown and have to change view to hunt for it.

    For Calendar and Contacts.

    Why does Outlook not have an integration for CalDAV/CardDAV innately?

  16. 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

  18. 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.
