  1. icloud contacts

    To import contacts in a vCard file to Outlook on a PC, you need to convert them from a .vcf file format to a .csv file format. This involves importing them to Windows, and then exporting them to the CSV file. If you have more than 50 or so contacts, this is a tedious process because you have to press OK for each contact you want to import to the csv file. Unfortunately, there's no way to do a global OK and import all of them to the csv file at the same time.

    Come on - simplify this please...

  3. Contact Lists / Groups needs to be more intuitive and easier to use

    To create a Group of Contacts, should be easy to do, and easy to then email to. We should be able to simply scroll through the list of contacts, checking boxes next to each name; from there it should be easy to not only email the selected contacts, but also create a Contact Group from that selection.

    Currently if you select contacts in this manor you literally cannot do ANYTHING to them. You can't delete in bulk, you can't create a new message to the selected, and you cannot create a Contact Group in this fashion. This is very confusing…

  4. A much easier way to add contacts to lists is needed

    It can be added on the Manage button or as a separate button. Adding people by entering the contact name is a pain

  5. Outlook.com People: Deleted folder not populated if deleted from app

    If you delete a contact from Outlook.com, they go into the Deleted folder in People. HOWEVER, if you delete it from your phone, computer, etc., they are permanently deleted. This is poor behavior. If a contact is deleted from a device, it should go into the Deleted folder.

    tldr:
    This would resolve much of the problems out there of not-computer-savvy people accidentally deleting all their contacts. Some people don't realize that their contact list is synced across devices. So, when getting rid of a device, they delete everything (including contacts) on it, not realizing that they are also deleting their…

  6. Loss of Information in People app when adding new info

    Whenever I add a new info in any existing contact whether it is phone number or email address, on of the phone number is automatically deleted. e.g. I have a contact named Naresh, it has two phone numbers, I have added an personal email address in this contact, but when I saved the contact, it removed one of the phone numbers.

    This problem is months old, I have gave feedback about it from my phone (Lumia 730, updated to windows 10) but the problem couldn't be resolved yet.

    I have lost many phone numbers because of this problem in people…

  7. People is really bad

    As much as the e-mail client beta version is good, so much the contact manager "People" is really bad.

    If you want to classify your contacts in subdirectories to find them quickly, you need to have a contact card with the same name in the "Contact" folder and use the "clean contact" function to link the 2 cards. Otherwise, the contcts are not syncronized on your smartphone.
    Why keep it simple when Microsoft can get complicated ...
    I will keep my contact management in Google contacts

  8. I need some way of identifying where a contact is stored

    For years I've used the desktop Outlook, along with our ISP, to store all contacts. The last few years I've begun to use the People app in Windows 10, because as I understand it, the People app is more associated with Office 365. But the one thing that is really very irritating, is I've no idea at all where the contact is stored. Since I've got years worth of contacts from the old ISP/.PST file, or in the People app used by Outlook.com, I don't know where anything is, until I try to edit it. It's VERY FRUSTRATING to get…

  10. Discontinued email addresses still appear

    Why do old email addresses, long since removed from my list of contacts, still come up in 'suggested contacts'? I've just had a non-delivery notice because I sent an email to an address which no longer exists - MOST ANNOYING. Also, although I've changed the email address in my contact's details, I notice the old one still appears under her name in the list. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CORRECTED LONG AGO.

  13. Tie contacts to Events

    It would be helpful if Contacts/People could be tied to Calendar Events- so there was a history (or link to the event) under the Contact's listing. Not every event is a Meeting- make a way to show Calls and Emails (or let us define a few ways).

  14. Contacts Archive

    Contacts Archive: Instead of having to delete old contatcs it might sometimes be useful to archive them. but not get them anymore in the current views/ search. But also not to loose them by deleting them.

  16. Contacts are broken

    Maybe this has something to do with integration with Android, but my contacts are all screwed up now. I have four separate contacts for one person, three for three different types of emails, and one that just has a photo. None of them have any information I have entered in the past including phone number, birthday, etc., and all four of them say "Add to contacts" even though they have obviously been in my contact list before. When I try to merge these contacts, they do not show up under the merge function, and when I try to edit a…
