  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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. search in contacts should include the notes

    Search in Contacts (People) should include words in the Notes area. When I use Search, it should find Contacts that have that text in the --Notes-- area of the Contact. Thanks.

  12. 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…

  14. Display, sort and search contacts by nickname

    Please add an option to display contacts' nicknames (if entered) in the contact list instead of their full names, sort the contact list by nicknames, and display contacts whose nickname matches a search query in the search results.

  15. Can't edit website added in Windows 10 app on the web, nor see website added on the web in Windows 10 app

    If I add a website for a contact in the People app on my Windows 10 PC, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Web page", but if I click on "Edit contact" on the web, the field "Web page" does not appear in the Edit contact window and I can't edit it. If I add a personal web page on Outlook.com on the web, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Personal web page", but it does not appear in the Windows 10 People app.

    Please make the web app and the Windows 10 app synchronize and display the…

  16. Make labels of phone numbers and email addresses consistent with Windows 10 app

    Make the labels of phone numbers and email addresses the same on the Outlook.com website as in the Windows 10 People app. For example, People on the web says "Organization phone" and just "Email", whereas the Windows 10 People app says "Company phone", "Personal email" and "Work email". Both should say "organization" rather than "company" because it is more general and both should have the "personal" and "work" labels for emails.

  17. 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.

  18. Contacts iPhone sync back

    When I edit outlook.com People, they synced to the iPhone.
    When I edit contacts on iPhone, they are not synced back to outlook.com.
    Please change that.

  19. 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.
