  2. .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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!!!!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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…

  13. Master Repository for Contact Data

    Outlook seems not to have a People/Contacts Function of its own ... It is somehow dependent on the "Native Contacts App" in Android.
    Since Contacts and the various details related to Contacts are REQUIRED ALMOST EVERYWHERE (email, calendar invites, WhatsApp, SMS Texting, many other apps) Why doesn't Microsoft/Outlook take the role of "Master Repository FOR ALL Contact Data" and then allow it out into the other apps as required ... Outlook is sucking data from "Android Contacts" when it should be Blowing Data out to such Apps.

  15. 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…

  17. 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.

  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

  20. 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.
