  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.

                • 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.

                  • Contact list

                    I would like to see the ability to move or copy a contact from the All Contacts listing to one of the Contact lists that I have set up. This would save someone from having to go through your entire listing and copying the emails of the people you would like to add to that list. It would enable me to send emails much more quickly to those people.

                    • Contact List

                      Just recently a bunch of my contacts, especially my groups, became harder to find. They no longer come up when I am drafting a message. I discovered that I have to switch over to the "People" tab then click on "Contact List" just to find them. This is infuriating.

                      • Family Contact List

                        Our family base set of contacts we all care about, such as our core family and friends. It would be super helpful if we could have a family contact list much in the same way Outlook.com provides the family calendar feature. That way we can all share/manage that core list. As it is now my wife and I have to manage our contact lists separately, which creates a lot of unnecessary work. I can share a contact, but that is a "point-in-time" share. If one of us makes updates to that contact again, the other does not receive the change.…

                          I want to export a contact list of about 60 contacts into a .csv file, not all my 600 contacts. Why can't I find a way to do it ?

                              • Contacts in folders do not sync with People nor with Android Contacts

                                I should be able to create a Folder to group related contacts together, and have contacts in the folder sync to the People app on Windows 10 and the Android Contacts app on my phone.

                                Currently, when I move a contact from the default Contacts folder to a custom subfolder (i.e. Family, Employees, Friends), the contacts no longer sync to the Windows 10 People app. Those contacts also do not sync to the Android Contacts app.

                                Please update the integration and syncing with other apps so that contacts in custom folders will also sync.

                                  • no list

                                    Going to "People" no longer shows the list of contacts, just the first name. I'd like to be able to see every name on my list occasionally so I can decide whether or not to keep them as contacts. Also, when updating a contact's email address, I can't get rid of the old one, so I have to manually enter the whole new address to send an email to that person. Go back to the old way. You "fixed" what wasn't broke, and broke it.

                                    • contact list not updating. Very slow if it ever updates. Editing contacts in main People do not sync with contacts in Group

                                      No lagging time between editing contact details to actually able to see and use changes.
                                      Changes in Contacts should immediately be reflected and sync with contacts in group list. More intuitive email program, user friendly and more efficient.

                                      • Advancing Birthdays

                                        Why do my contacts' birthdays change dates? Once or twice a year, they all move forward a day without any action from me! It is super frustrating and annoying! Why does the program do that? Birthdays don't change!!

                                        • Add multiple contacts to a contact list

                                          It is not possible to go trough All contacts and add one or multiple contacts to a contact list. Only in the list it is possible to lookup people an add them. This is not very practical and people which should be added are forgotten.
