  2. Is there any way to communicate with someone at Microsoft who knows what they are doing?

    I was referred here by Microsoft Support when they couldn't help. The outlook functions are causing mail on my iPhone to frequently freeze and my contacts list to drop large numbers of contacts and then recover the missing Contacts after I reboot the phone. Apple insists that this is an Outlook problem.

  4. Link people to calendar event by cell number instead fo an email

    As email address is no longer dominating method of people/contact identification in address book, now it is cell phone numberis main id method of contact identification that would be quite useful feature to link people from address book to calendar event using cell phone number. At the present time it is possible just for contact which email I have.

  5. Let us un-set contact photo

    There should be a way to "unset" contact photo. I have a bunch of contacts from back when contacts were imported from Facebook, I think it was, and they have somewhat nonsense/old photos that I'd like to restore to the two-letter badge. That'd be more useful than old photos, especially on contacts that are just an email address imported from Facebook.

  6. Outlook issues

    I do not like OUTLOOK!! First is could not find "People". Then when I tried to set up a group, My Name came up first and then the 8 others I added were only listed by e-mail. I HATE THAT!!! How can their names by Listed instead of the circle with a letter and an e-mail which means diddly squat. You are not user friendly at all. The improvements SUCK.

  7. Delete duplicates instead of linking

    The merge function for contacts should actually MERGE information in a single contact, instead of linking two identical ones!

  10. Tags to contacts

    Can you please add tags to contacts, similar to photos, so that contacts can belong to different groups ? This not for the same use as contact lists, but to share groups

  12. Outlook for IOS does't work properly with Outlook.com

    It's really a shame. After using Outlook since the 1990's I have had enough. Enter a new contact into the Contacts app on your iPhone and it appears at Outlook.com on the web, but does NOT appear in contacts in Outlook for IOS. Enter a new contact in Outlook for IOS on your iPhone and it appears on Outlook.com and in the Contacts app on the iPhone, BUT if you then close everything and go searching for it in Outlook for IOS, only the first phone number shows up. At the same time, the whole thing shows up in the…

  13. I think having yellow colored people emojis by default that cannot be changed is UNACCEPTABLE

    How is it possible that the color of the people emojis is stuck on yellow? Why are there colors offered if they can't be changed? Why can't my emoji people have dark skin??? Unacceptable! Outlook.com Support and the engineers team says "it can not be changed" Ridiculous!

  16. Add a photo to your contacts

    Dear Outlook Support,
    The zoom feature is back, however, when I try to upload an image, it briefly appears until 'Done' is clicked on. As someone said on UserVoice, something about 'GMAIL does it this way.' As such, I would urge you to contact Google for assistance in how they go about uploading pictures. I am sure that the information can be freely exchanged.

    Keep at it,
    Ryan Robison

  18. People Icon under All Apps

    When I am in desktop outlook mail and click the APPS dots icon to the left of the word outlook in the upper left, why would the people/contacts icon not be one of the main ones showing. you have to click All Apps to see People. That should be there in the first list.

  20. There is a UI issue when 2 contacts share an email

    I have 2 contacts with the same email address. Different names, different phone numbers. If I click on one of the contacts, it shows their info correctly. If I then click to the other contact, only some of the info is correct. The phone number is still the one from the previous contact. However, if I click on a completely different contact and then click on the second contact, the information is displayed correctly. It appears that the details pane is not refreshing completely if the email address is the same.
