Provide an option to set Search to search All Contacts or specific Contact lists in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to set Search to search All Contacts or specific Contact lists in Microsoft Outlook 2016 as required. Also when searching in Contacts it would be great if the word/phrase was found in a contact and highlighted in the Contact itself for easy retrieval.
Searching feature on Outlook while searching Name, it allows to only prompt results of mails sent by the Name (Sender) only, exclude any CC/BCC.
En nuestra empresa tenemos una lista de contactos compartidos de todos los proveedores. Cuando creamos un contacto, nos falta un campo: actividad de empresa. Se puede crear un campo nuevo, pero no se hace búsqueda por este campo. Y esto es que nos hace falta. Por ejemplo quiero preguntar los precios a todas las empresas de neumáticos. No puedo buscar empresas por este criterio, tengo que recordar o preguntar los nombres de empresas.
the word or phrase being searched for in Contacts is highlighted so it can be easily located in the Notes section
Currently you can search contacts for each account. It would be good to be able to search acroiss accounts in the poeple contact search bar.

When creating a new email, I would like to be able to type any part of the contact's detail and use ctrl+K to choose the right contact if multiple matches occur. eg. if a contact has multipart surname "Hanna Gonkiewicz-Waltz" I would like to be able to find her by typing "waltz" in the "to:" field.
Feature request: allow users to create search folders that contain contacts.

A simple search facility in Contacts (like you once had!) would be useful

The "Advanced Find" option in "Select Members" dialog doesn't work any differently than the "Name only" and "More Columns" options. Please make it more useful, like searching within a name (e.g. a search for "ames" would find "James", which it currently doesn't do. ) Please also search email fields, so we can search for a domain name. Wildcards would be helpful (e.g. "*@microsoft.com"

Improve the search for a contact business card please
Install a new kind of search.

There is a total lack of a proper search facility in contacts like there was in Office 2003. For instance Kier is the name of a contractor not just part of someone's name.

The search function is quite poor when trying to email a group; or when adding a contact to a group.
Search ONLY matches the start of the contact / group name in this instance - so you have to remember how you named it. It also doesn't help if you have a lot of contacts called John for example...

Sometimes I want to send an email to all my contacts in a specific company. So I want to have the ability to be in the To field of an email and then search for "everyone@***.com" rather than go one by one (from the drop down) and choose (which is very tedious),
No, I do not want to make a group distribution.......
search in the NOTES of my contacts - some of my contacts have detailed notes
Scroll thru Contact profile page to next contact. Suggest a name as you type a contact name. Show a list of all contacts when adding New.

The New Contact page in older Outlook versions is much likea that in the newest Outlook--but not nearly as useful. Both have the same large space at lower right for notes about the new contact, but in older Outlooks you could search according to info in that panel. No longer! New Outlook allows search by name only.
I have 2000+ contacts and can't possibly recall all names, especially because some I use only every few months. So in old Outlook I added such terms as Family, Classmates, and so on. And so searching for Family brought up the entries for all members.
In business this was even more important. I'm a writer. My field is alcohol. So to every contact I added categories (wine, rye, scotch, etc.) and brand names. Then when I was starting an article on Vodka, I could search for Vodka and get all of my Vodka contacts at once--including those I'd completely forgotten. When I couldn't recall the contact of some obscure brand in could search by the brand's name and get the info needed.
Why has new Outlook (since version 2013, I think) been unnecessarily crippled? I wish I could meld the 2003 version into W10, but apparently that's impossible.
Look at it this way: new Outlook is like a dictionary. Access to info is limited unless you know exactly what you need. Old Outlook was like a Thesaurus: you can access info by coming at it form 2 or more different directions. Computer power is uniquely suited to that kind of search. Outlook used to have it but now it doesn't. Why?
Create a search folder for contacts in Outlook 2016.
Creating a new search folder is only possible for emails, not for contacts.
Allow user to search by any contact field in Outlook 2016 and onwards.
It would be great if user could search all fields by default, then allow user to be specific.
Should be a very easy experience. Much like a search engine.
Specifically: When searching in the main contacts section Outlook only searched in that specific folder.
Please provide option to search all contacts folder (all accounts), all subfolder in that account.
For email search that is already available...not for contacts.
When creating new email
Given choices for types of sending … TO…CC…BCC
Given select names: Contacts where the system defaults to (This computer Only) address book where I store zero contacts.
The address book (my email address) I stored zero
The address book it chooses is “this computer only”. I can manually switch to just contacts which then shows me all contacts I have. Feel this should be reversed on choices
Suggested Contacts …. Zero stored
