  1. 'People ' should be called Contacts.

    'People ' should be called Contacts. sometimes it's a company that;s not a 'human' , thats a firm, an operation lol, not a people/person. ?? People is an awful label for CONTACTS.

  5. Contact List Problem

    Contact List problem: I have contacts that I added months ago. However, when I add them to a Contact List (and enter them by name), the software cannot find them. Thus I have to add them under their email address. Sometimes people have very obscure email addresses and it makes this very difficult. One of my contact lists has 12 people on it - 2 of them can only be added with their email address so their name does not show up on the list. The other 10 show up with both their name and their email address. Can you…

  6. AutoComplete feature also displays e-mail addresses that are not stored in contact folders!

    In all of these apps, email addresses are always displayed in the address and search fields, which are somewhere in emails, which one has gotten once - more precisely, in the recipient addresses of such emails.In the case of Outlook Desktop, this is the case if you write a new e-mail in the recipient fields, further up in the tool bar "Start> search for persons", continue in the online service Outlook.com resp. in the Exchange online variant, continue in the Outlook app for Android / iOS, when I search for a person (magnifying glass in the middle) and then select…

  7. lost ability to use contact list from mail to address email or to invite guests to event in calendar

    Missing capabilities now that new Outlook has been pushed out with no ability to roll back. Use contact lists extensively in the organization to invite people to calendar event and also to address emails from Mail. Is this coming back? If so, when? This is a huge loss to our organization with no means to revert back to the old version.

  16. Google's export to CSV is not properly parsed by Microsoft's import from CSV.

    For contacts, Google's export to CSV uses field names that Microsoft's import does not understand. The result is the unknown fields are saved in the Notes field. This is very clumsy import and forces the user to perform LOTS of editing. You show an example of some fields in a few records in the .csv file, but not enough for the user to know the import of the CSV will result in a good set of contacts. You need to provide a mapping of what Google uses for field names to what you use for field names. Since Google and…

  17. Add merge option, instead of or in addition to linking

    Linking results in hidden entries. Later the user may not realize that a contact has linked entries (unless they happen to check). Rather than linking the contacts, especially after importing, add a Merge button that pre-selects the duplicate entries, presents the list, and lets the user *merge* the duplicates. Then there is just one entry per contact.

  19. Custom labels for contact email addresses.

    Please allow the option to create custom titles for email addresses. Rather than just "email" it would be convenient if we could label our contact's email addresses to "Microsoft Account" or "Apple ID". This makes it easier when sharing content to these services.

  20. forwarding stinks

    Forwarding of mail is almost impossible with your new and improved? version of outlook. You can't select recipients as easily as in past versions and all in all it is a frigging mess. Please bring back the old version. You've put some lipstick on a bull dog but I can't see where you have done unit testing, regression testing, or system testing.
