  5. Can't delete all deleted contact!

    I import contact from google contact to outlook via excel file. I upload 2 times fail and 1 time successful. I see many duplicated contact in my list. So I delete all before re-upload. Last time, upload successful.
    In my Blackberry 10, many duplicated contact synced. I don't know why. I guess it synced contact in delete box in to my cellphone also.
    I try to delete contact in delete box. But Outlook don't allow to delete all, only 50 contact per time. I angry with this. You can make this easy by select all and delete. You can show…

  6. Add merge option, instead of or in addition to linking

    Linking results in hidden entries. Later the user may not realize that a contact has linked entries (unless they happen to check). Rather than linking the contacts, especially after importing, add a Merge button that pre-selects the duplicate entries, presents the list, and lets the user *merge* the duplicates. Then there is just one entry per contact.

  8. Allow editing suggested contacts in the people tab

    Suggested contacts are no longer editable in the people tab. It would be nice to either edit them, or disable the suggested contacts list altogether.

  9. 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. Exporting a contact list

    I want to export a contact list of about 60 contacts into a .csv file, not all my 600 contacts. Why can't I find a way to do it ?

  12. Contact lists in Surname order but not when added to email

    I have created several contact lists and sorted the contents in Surname order. Why though when I add the contact list to an email does it show in First name order?
    This makes it extremely awkward to check I am sending my email to all the people I need to.

  13. Custom labels for contact email addresses.

    Please allow the option to create custom titles for email addresses. Rather than just "email" it would be convenient if we could label our contact's email addresses to "Microsoft Account" or "Apple ID". This makes it easier when sharing content to these services.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Want to distinguish external/internal user by presence icon

    With Office Professional Plus, I can figure out external users by seeing their square presence icon as they are grayed-out.
    However, Office 365 ProPlus does not clearly show the difference of presence icon for external/internal users. It would be great you would improve user presence icon to be shown differently for external or internal users.

  19. 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.
