  2. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. LinkedIn - Choose the matching profile

    I can’t connect email to my LinkedIn profile.

    Please add the ability to add a company profile in LinkIn to an Outlook contact, and not just personal profiles.

  13. Deceased contacts.

    Ability to mark contact as Deceased, with optional date of death? By default, these contacts woudl be hidden from your view, but remain in the complete list since this is relevant for matching old emails against the deceased friend/family member.

    (I'm a Microsoft employee, so feel free to email toma@microsoft.com if you have further ?'s...)

  19. Add ability to auto cloud sync Google Contracts to Outlook Contacts. Newly added contacts on either services, will sync to other

    Add ability to auto cloud sync Google Contracts to Outlook Contacts.

    This will let us link our Gmail contacts to Outlook contacts/email contacts. If we added Contacts from Gmail/Google Contacts, it will be available to Outlook too. All the infos are added, including the contact images, in high resolution. Any edits or new contacts from each other will show to both
