  2. Please restore direct opening of Contacts in Microsoft 365

    It is no longer possible to directly open a contact, e.g. from a list of search results. Instead one must choose "Edit contact" from a menu on a Contact Card. This has a serious negative impact on productivity. The earlier registry settings to "TurnOnLegacyGALDialog" are no longer applicable.
    This change in functionality has engendered many complaints online, e.g.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeoutlook-msowin10-mso_2019/outlook-2019-not-opening-full-contact-card-after/58fc3cb8-43e1-45ad-afad-ca5c0f88e518
    Please provide a simple option (not a registry tweak) to disable Contact Cards and open Contacts directly.

  7. Provide an option or feature to return to older version to Search contacts so that you see all contact cards in Microsoft Outook

    Previously, if I searched in Contacts, for, say the word "golf", I'd see the actual contact cards for everyone with that word in them, not just one person or a partial contact. Help. Please return to that.

  9. you need a more improved search engine for searching for contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just t.he name. Let it sort by column

    You need a more improved search engine for searching contacts. Allow it to search all fields not just the name. Let it sort by column so at least you can scan down the column to look for a contact. This feature has been horrible for a long time.

  11. 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".

  14. 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.

  19. Option to save/export list of cached email IDs

    There are 1000s of email IDs in my Outlook app's cache which do not show up in the address book, however, they pop up as dropdown when writing a mail. I need and option to either save those contacts in the address book from where they can be exported, or an option to directly export them. Today If i lose my PC, or the disc goes corrupt I'll lose 1000s of IDs, and all my client data is lost. I can't go and individually go to email and chose to save those IDs individually for 1000s of IDs.
