  1. 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.

  2. ajout du contact automatique

    Ajouter automatiquement le contact lors de la création d'un mail vers une nouvelle adresse sans avoir besoin de retourner dans le mail envoyé pour ajouter l'adresse aux contacts.
    Le simple fait d'écrire à une adresse inconnue suffirait à l'application à enregistrer automatiquement cette nouvelle adresse, comme c'est déjà le cas dans la plupart des messageries.

  6. Enable colour background in Contacts fields

    Enable the back ground of a Contact to be a different colour [if I choose] so that I can see the Main number, or an alternative contact.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow custom fields on Contact Card

    Would be nice to be able to display things like 'Business Phone 2' on the quick contact card that pops up when hovering over a person.

  9. Add to address book via hyperlink

    It would be nice to be able to add to contacts via hyperlinks that are in the body of the email; that way you don't have to read the hyperlink and do a copy and paste in to the address book. Less clicks.

  11. Add automatically the salutation in an email.

    It is annoying to write allways the salutation - especially in German mails - . It should come out of a pre-defined field in the contacts.

  13. modifying business card advanced view for all contacts

    I want to be able to have an option to apply changes on a business card to other contacts. Currently you need to apply the changes manually on each contact, which I have 980.

    Thanks.

  14. Sort a Meeting's Contacts Alphabetically

    Classificar os contatos de uma Reunião por ordem alfabética

    Sort a Meeting's Contacts Alphabetically

    Ao inserir contatos em uma Reunião de Outlook poder visualizar no assistente de agendamento os contatos em ordem crescente ou decrescente. Outra opção seria filtrar contatos para verificar duplicidade de inserção de contatos.

    When you enter contacts in an Outlook Meeting you can view contacts in ascending or descending order in the scheduling wizard. Another option would be to filter contacts to check for duplicate contact insertion.

  17. Retire the Telex or Pager fields - update to add Personal and Business Mobile

    I can't imagine there are many people or businesses that still use Telex or Pagers. However, increasingly these days many people have Business and Personal mobile phones. Would it make sense to add these categories to the Phone numbers field in Outlook?

  20. Provide a feature to search recipient email address automatically if we enter phone number in Microsoft Outlook 2016 when composing emails

    At present , if we put user name or user id in outlook for enterprises , we can search the e mail address for the recipient. Provide an option to search and display the email address of the recipient if we enter mobile number of the recipient in TO / CC / BCC field, with Control K option , provided the contact has been stored by entering all the information including phone number(s).
