Enable to show Global Address List in contacts pane
OWA can show Address Lists of my organization under "Directory". It is better to find someone or some gruop across my contacts and my organization in a view. Please consider to integrate OWA feature and Outlook feature.

Syncing integration of the Global Address List into all user's address lists would save so much company wide confusion!

I have an Office 365 Busines Essential Exchange account and would like an option to store/save all contacts in GAL in Outlook 2016 so that other users can access the same contacts.
Amen! Why are there so many places to find a contact in Outlook.
Not sure why the Global Address List is a separate from the People pane. Makes no sense. This needs to be combined.
Just switched form 2010 and it looked like I lost half of my contacts. Then I realized that the Global list was gone. We need to get that back on the People tab.

Need a global 1-click button to open Contacts (not just address list) (as in older versions of Outlook).
Our organisation uses the PEOPLE pane extensively as it's so easy and quick to access.
HOWEVER, it makes absolutely no sense why you cannot access the Global Address List from PEOPLE!
Our users overlook the Address Book as it's hidden/not discoverable. The PEOPLE page is great, especially as we can change the view listings: CALENDAR, PEOPLE, etc. to large fonts that are easily discoverable for our organisation. It just doesn't make sense to enable PEOPLE for just local/user contacts.
I would like to see the old list of contacts or addresses easily accessible.

I have to say that I've always found the various address lists I see confusing. It's not clear to me which is stored where
Please allow for additions to the directory listings and allow viewing of the directory.
