  1. Extension Attributes/ Custom Attributes

    In our on premise Exchange, we exposed (and relabeled) Extension Attributes 1 - 4 in the address book. Can we get the option to customize pages in the address list in O365? Or is there a way to expose those attributes in SharePoint online by lookup?

  3. Stop changing people's names

    I sent an email to someone, say "Maria@outlook.com". THEN I set her up as a contact in People, with the name "Social - Maria". Plus I added her to a contact Group List. BUT outlook keeps changing her name to "Maria" rather than keeping the name that I input of "Social - Maria".

    How do I get outlook to stop changing her name? I WANT THE NAME I INPUT.

  4. Add a flag to show "Linked Contacts" so when the incorrectly get linked, a user can easily find and unlink them.

    Right now the only way to find contacts that have been INCORRECTLY linked, is click on each contact, 1 by 1, until "Linked Contacts" appears in the heading bar. This is not practical. I have 2500+ contacts, and 6 of them were incorrectly linked by either Outlook.com or Android or iPhone, and I cannot find which without clicking through ALL 2500 of them? Doesn't make sense. Add a "sort by linked contacts" or something, seems so simple.

  5. delete system folder

    There are two ghost folders in my account that I cannot delete. LinkedIn Contacts and Google Contacts appear in my Outlook file, but don't show on Outlook.com (without a IE6 workaround). How can I get these folders out of there?

  6. Edit the GAL & Address book drop down lists

    Edit the GAL:
    When sending an email, you click on the To button; edit Jane; Rt Click it; Properties; rt click Email Addresses; - if she's left I can't delete her.
    If you select Address Books, none of the All Addresses; All Contacts; All Groups; Room or Users work - can these be edited or removed?
    If you select the Advanced Find & try part of a Person's name eg Rob, I don't get a list of all Roberts & Robinsons come up, - it just does not work!

  7. when looking at a sent email...you cannot see the entire list of email addresses of people that you sent it to. I want to copy and paste

    When i send an email to more than 25 or so people and then look into the sent email for the bcc addresses it does not show all of the addresses in the bcc line. I used to be able to copy all of those bcc addresses and send out another email to those same people. Please bring that function back

  8. Yomi-name contacts not in order with English ones!

    Outlook People (Web version) does not put contacts with a Yomi (phonetic) name (such as Chinese) along with all 'normal' English contacts. The UWP app can do that, however.

  9. Address book

    When clicking on the "People" option I WAS able to go to my company's directory to locate names I haven't emailed before. Now it just gives me MY contact list and nothing else. How am I supposed to find another coworker's name without the company address book?

  10. Contacts birthday shifted

    Birthday on contacts card ist shifted one day back, while in the old view the date is correct. Very annoying.

    Many functions missing: connected accounts, remove - add birthday calendar, rules and last but not least proper sync of contacts with Outlook!

  11. It's Time to Change the Default Phone Number Format

    Once upon a time, long, long ago, dialing an area code was optional. It isn't optional any more. Not on most phone systems anyway. So why do we still put the area code in parentheses? Parentheses indicates that the digits are optional. They still do. They are not optional. This situation is most ridiculous with toll free numbers such as (800) 123-0000. Really?

    Either change the formatting to +1 123-456-7890 or let us change it. And don’t fall back on the Windows “Phone and Modem” control panel—it doesn’t work this way. It only lets us change the area code and…

  12. distribution list selecting contact email address

    Currently when adding a contact to a distribution list, if the contact has multiple e-mail addresses, the distribution list will default to using the first e-mail address associated with that contact. Currently the work around is to create an individual contact card for each e-mail address, which makes for a messy contacts database and difficulty in tracking contacts. The ability should be added to allow users to select which e-mail address is used when adding a contact to a distribution list.

  14. Intégration Calendar/Contact/Map

    What's going on with this outlook.com?
    When we add the address in a contact, it is not possible to see on the map Bing with a click? I have to copy and pass this address..
    2) When scheduling an appointment with a contact in the calendar there is no way to add a contact as a place.
    What kind of Outlook integration has?

  15. icloud contacts

    To import contacts in a vCard file to Outlook on a PC, you need to convert them from a .vcf file format to a .csv file format. This involves importing them to Windows, and then exporting them to the CSV file. If you have more than 50 or so contacts, this is a tedious process because you have to press OK for each contact you want to import to the csv file. Unfortunately, there's no way to do a global OK and import all of them to the csv file at the same time.

    Come on - simplify this please...

  17. A much easier way to add contacts to lists is needed

    It can be added on the Manage button or as a separate button. Adding people by entering the contact name is a pain

  18. Outlook.com People: Deleted folder not populated if deleted from app

    If you delete a contact from Outlook.com, they go into the Deleted folder in People. HOWEVER, if you delete it from your phone, computer, etc., they are permanently deleted. This is poor behavior. If a contact is deleted from a device, it should go into the Deleted folder.

    tldr:
    This would resolve much of the problems out there of not-computer-savvy people accidentally deleting all their contacts. Some people don't realize that their contact list is synced across devices. So, when getting rid of a device, they delete everything (including contacts) on it, not realizing that they are also deleting their…

  19. Contact Lists / Groups needs to be more intuitive and easier to use

    To create a Group of Contacts, should be easy to do, and easy to then email to. We should be able to simply scroll through the list of contacts, checking boxes next to each name; from there it should be easy to not only email the selected contacts, but also create a Contact Group from that selection.

    Currently if you select contacts in this manor you literally cannot do ANYTHING to them. You can't delete in bulk, you can't create a new message to the selected, and you cannot create a Contact Group in this fashion. This is very confusing…

  20. Loss of Information in People app when adding new info

    Whenever I add a new info in any existing contact whether it is phone number or email address, on of the phone number is automatically deleted. e.g. I have a contact named Naresh, it has two phone numbers, I have added an personal email address in this contact, but when I saved the contact, it removed one of the phone numbers.

    This problem is months old, I have gave feedback about it from my phone (Lumia 730, updated to windows 10) but the problem couldn't be resolved yet.

    I have lost many phone numbers because of this problem in people…
