  1. No easy access to contacts -- why?

    Inconvenient that there is not a contact list directly available when in Outlook e-mail. Instead have to go to another Outlook webpage.

  2. Automatic contact linking

    My contacts are linking automatically if they use a joint email account which is deleting one of the contacts. This causes a major headache as I am getting texts and calls and it no longer has the other persons name as it automatically linked it

  3. Contact name in email

    In the email address line some names do not appear, just the email address. Ok, it still sends, but it looks untidy and also gives the impression that person is not listed in your contacts. It`s an issue that comes and goes. Within People, the name is there, but not always on email.

  4. Change for sake of Change is extremely annoying.

    'People' moved to bottom of page. I spent ages looking for it. It used to be at top of page. Why on earth do you keep messing about with this program, or 'app' as we now have to call it? I'm off to find another email program.

  6. Personal Web Page Field Data Mapping

    For O365 (Web) contacts is there a "Personal web page" field, and also a "Web Page" field? I assume this is due to my syncing my contacts with my IPhone contacts. However, both show on the "Contact" tab, but when you click on Edit Contact, you only see the "Personal Web Page", and NOT the "Web Page" field? Seems this is a data mapping issue, especially for company web pages.

  7. Moving contacts to new folders

    I just discovered the Folders on the left hand side of the page. Why can't I drag and drop existing contacts into the folders I just made??? How do I move them from "contacts" to the new folder? Or how do I add them to the new folder?

    Also, I have contacts from companies I used to work for. I want to save the names and numbers, but I don't want to see them unless I am looking for them. I'd like to have them hidden from my regular contact list.

  8. outlook changes name of person in People

    I emailed someone, say maria@outlook. com. BUT then I set up Maria as a contact in Outlook People, with a prefix, so "Social - Maria". OUTLOOK keeps deleting my entry of "Social - Maria" and keeps listing her as Maria. STOP IT. IF I ENTER A NAME IN A CERTAIN WAY, LEAVE IT ALONE.

  9. Filter out contacts that either don't have phone number or email address

    This would be useful for getting rid of contacts that aren't necessary or needed.

  11. Need labels for groups and much easier way to create them

    There's no easy way to create a mail group like GMail. Only way it can be done in Outlook online is to create a group and the people in it. If I try and "copy" someone already in Outlook to the group it can't be done. In GMail I can "label" each person or business with a specific label so if I later want to send a "group" email to the people in that label I can do it in one email easily. I also keep all my contacts in one group regardless of their labels.

  12. Grid view for people contacts

    It should be really nice to have a Grid view for all the contatcs, as for the outlook app. Thsi would simplify a lot to check missing fields and to quickly update the contact list.

  14. Contact Lists, as currently implemented, are basically useless. How can they not be tied to the contacts?

    Text below is copied from the edit screen of a Contact List. Based on this, what exactly is the use of a Contact List in Outlook.com? Really.

    The email addresses in a contact list are not connected to your saved contacts.
    If you want to change an email address in the contact list, you must remove the old email address and add the new one.

  16. Selecting large groups of contacts

    Please expand the contact windows so it's not so hard to choose a large group of contacts from a huge list, and greatly expand the people lists on contact lists and folders to make it so many names can be chosen at once, not individually!

  17. Stop adding profile pictures automatically to my contacts!

    One of my contacts has an email address at aol.com. I now noticed that under https://outlook.live.com/people/ a AOL logo has been automatically added to this contact as the profile picture. Come on Microsoft. What kind of nonsense is this now? Firstly; I never added any profile picture to this contact. Secondly: How is it possible that the system messes around with my contacts and adds unwanted profile pictures to them?? And in this case even a very ugly AOL logo? Please stop doing this!

  19. After migrating to iPhone it deletes contacts and I can't get them back

    I recently got an iPhone and integreated Outlook and it looks like it removed some of my contacts after switching from the Windows Phone. I don't see how I can get them back.
