  2. 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…

  6. Place calls via Skype from Contacts

    When I click a phone number in Contacts place a call via Skype in Outlook.com

    This seems like a obvious feature but for some reason is missing.

  8. Beta Outlook Contacts Page

    Need to be able to sort my contact list by Company. Was able to do that in Classic Outlook but can't find a way to do it in Beta. Turned off Beta in Contacts for now. Not happy with Beta on my Mail page but can't find the button to turn off Beta on that page.

  10. My colleagues

    Hello ,
    I work as an admin staff and It's really time consuming when making a group chat where there is hundreds of company emails to add in the group .
    Right now , the only way is to add emails one by one which is very time consuming for me or maybe some others who work as an admin / office.

    I would like to suggest an idea like copy and pasting as much as emails as we want to , Example ( solari1@hotmail.com;solari2@hotmail.com;solari3@hotmail.com) Adding the " ; " Right beside the mail can…

  11. Automatically change the contact info in "Group contacts" after editing a specific contact info in "People" list.

    This is a big help so the user doesn't need to check and update all the group contact where the contact is included.

  13. Save to Contacts

    When sending an email to a new contact, I used to be asked "save to contacts" and now there is nowhere to save a new email address to contacts!!!
    New hotmail is not as good as the old one as full of "categories/trivia" you would never want and unnecessary infantile options

  17. multiple contact lists

    You need to create a way to set up separate contact lists so we could perform mail merges. Now you can only do a mail merge with every contact in your list.

  18. Filter out contacts that don't have email or number

    This would be a great way of deleting contacts that aren't supposed to be there. Few years ago, I thought syncing with Facebook was a good idea. Now, my contacts list is filled with unneeded contacts.
