Allow multi-select of contacts and then allow setting all selected contacts to Shared status
There should be the capacity to select multiple contacts in the OCM interface in Outlook 2016, and then change certain settings on all selected contacts - but most importantly their shared status.
Often, smaller companies all share the contacts and deals they are working on. When someone joins the OCM and brings their contacts in, not being able to share them all, or a specific subset with one or few clicks, is a major barrier to getting on board with the software.
We hope to enable that functionality soon. We will be publishing details on this in our Techcommunity forum.

It's obvious, this feature should be a priority. OCM should allow the selection of several contacts to facilitate management. Could you tell us where to download the promised update?
August 2018... Almost a year has passed. Still cannot bulk-select or edit anything in OCM.

If you have added 25 data tracking fields, and you do offer this new Multi-Select option; how could you use it as you currently can not delete or have not than the 25 current and deleted field added columns?
