  1. reset child password

    It should be much easier for a parent to reset a child's password without needing to change an account type or delete/re-create the account. The password security question answers are being rejected as insufficient, even though there's nothing else I can add. I can't reset it from the Family settings (even though I could delete the account from the family, and create a new account, but that means the email address will change.).

  4. "Recent People" list naming

    The title of the "Recent People" list that shows up when you left click on the "To" field during a new email draft is somewhat misleading. While the list CAN be a list of recent people, it would be more accurate for it to be a phrasing something along the lines of "Frequently Contacted" instead, since the Autocomplete cache is run on a weighted system and the suggestions listed from a single click are what the Outlook heuristics determine are the most heavily contacted individuals in the Autocomplete list. Right now there is room for misinterpretation for "Recent People" to…

  5. .wab file import

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook.com.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.

  6. I would like to be able to record my name, and hear how others say their names

    I would like to be able to record my name, and hear how other people say their own names in Outlook and Teams. We have a diverse workforce and pronouncing names is often just guesswork and it is frustrating. It should be possible to hover over someone's name in Outlook and click on a speaker icon or something to hear them say their name.

  8. Combine People from Microsoft and Gmail account

    In the People App in Windows 10 both accounts are shown in one list. You can see if a contact is from Gmail or Outlook or both at "How you're connected".
    In outlook.live.com/people/ they are two separate lists (different browser tab). It should be one list so that the app and browser version have the same behavior and the same contacts.

  9. To duplicate a contact list

    Perhaps a development might help
    It would be good to be able to create a duplicate list that can then be slightly changed in order to create a new list.

    Example - if you have a list of 100 contacts and wish to create a new list for just 85 of those people, it would be easier to duplicate the first list, remove 15 people and create new list.
    Much easier than making a brand new list of 85 people!!!!

  10. 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.

  11. show date a contact was added to your contact list

    When you add a new contact in your contact list I would like it to show the date added. Is that a current option other than putting something in the Notes section. I want to know when I added contacts.

  12. '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.

  13. Separate People with shared e-mail address forces only one name

    Basic scenario. I have Jack Smith and Jill Smith. Each has their own phone number, but share an email address.

    In Outlook, one would think that I could just create two new contacts. I attempt this, and it asks me if I want to create this as a new contact or merge because both individuals have the same email address. I choose to create a New Contact. After creating this new contact, I have to close and reopen Outlook for it to show up.

    Here is the issue. If is still retain the same email for both contacts, even with…

  15. Fix email address field taking priority over company name in contact list

    If a contact has populated company name and email address fields but empty first name and last name fields, the email address is displayed in the contact list instead of the company name.

    Please fix.

  17. 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…

  18. Sync contacts between 2 microsoft accounts

    I have 2 Microsoft accounts and have contacts in one account. I have skype services in another. I am currently manually adding contacts in both accounts. There should be an ability to sync contacts between accounts. It will be really helpful. Please consider this

  19. 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…
