  2. New feedback

    Selecting a letter to move to that part of the contact list makes the list of contacts disappear. WTF.

  3. Duplicate a contact's info and save for a new contact

    The ability to duplicate one contacts information to setup as a new contact. An example would be my company where most of the information is the same for all contacts but I just need to change the contact name and save without typing all the info in again.

  4. User Created Contact Folders

    All contacts does not show any contacts in folders besides the default "Contacts". Any user created folders that have contacts in them will not show up under All Contacts. They are also not available in the mobile app.

  6. Bug when renaming contact folders

    When on renames a contact folder and change change small caps to big ones then nothing will be changed. Looks like you make everything small or big before comparing if something has changed.

  7. Dealing with Contacts and Groups

    Why is always so cumbersome to not only add a contact, but then to add that contact to a contact list? I've been using hotmail for so many years, and still, its a pain to add someone to a group or to deal with and use groups.

  8. Contact info panel

    Could you please bring back the contact info panel?

    In old Outlook, when you clicked on the email address/contact, info panel showed up on the right side. You were able to see mails, files, events or schedule a new event.

    In the current implementation this feature is gone. When I click on the contact I see a few emails, files, but that's it. No schedules, nothing... And when I get outside of that window, it closes, so the whole view disappears.

  9. An address is an address and no “coordinates”!

    The Address field of a contact is labeled incorrectly as “Coordinates” in all German versions of the “Windows 10” people/contacts apps (both in the desktop and the mobile version).

    The address of a contact in an address book has nothing to do with coordinates. It’s about the postal address!

    Coordinates are numbers that are necessary for GPS and navigation.

    Please change this nonsensical naming of postal addresses.

    In case it’s just a wrong translation:

    The correct German translation for address is “Adresse”.

    Please change that. Thank you.

  10. Contact Photos

    Currently when going to Outlook.com > People we are unable to add Photos to our contacts. The only work around is by using "Windows 10 > People" app. This method is also not working well.

    On People app (W10) adding a photo to a contact (314x314) or (640x640) of JPG format shows up on People App. After pressing SYNC on People App some photos get uploaded others don't.

    Using an iPhone and adding contacts have the same problem. Contacts with a photo on Outlook.com > People, do not display the photo on Contacts, while others randomly do.

    Inconsistencies:
    1) Adding…

  14. Save preffered sort order for contacts:

    Everytime I return to contacts, I have to change the filter to my preference.
    OneDrive has a feature that allows you to save your preferred sort order.
    That would be a great consistent use of the feature in outlook throughout.

  15. Contact list ruined

    My contacts list is all right, but emails will not bring it up. An email to Tabbycat@meow.com brings up the old address-every address with a t that I have ever used-a lot that I don't recognise-but never Tabbycat@meow.com.

    I have tidied the contacts list, but the contacts keep coming back-the old and deleted ones, never the new ones. I have to write these onto the email myself.

    The contacts list itself no longer shows old or unused addresses, only current ones, so why won't these appear at the tops of new emails ?

    It is incredibly annoying. I will…

  17. Bring back Contact Groups!!

    Why don't you allow saved Contact Groups? Most of us only need 10 or fewer contacts (family, friends, colleagues) in a group. Why did you stop that function?

  18. Contacts

    In the old Outlook I had my contacts in categories. I could just type in that category and the names would come up. I no longer have that options. I have to now type in each name separately. Please return this feature. It was under manage contacts.

  19. cleanup contacts

    There's a bug in "cleanup contacts." When I clicked on "cleanup contacts", it showed me the duplicates, but I can't scroll down the page. Since I can't uncheck whatever might be below the visible screen, I don't dare click "cleanup" because I don't know what's going to happen to those contacts. Hence, the function is entirely unusable.

  20. Contacts

    Writing an email in beta only brings up the My contact list. Unfortunately the sorting is not consistent and, in my opinion, My contacts should be eliminated with just contacts and simple sorting options of how I want to get my contacts sorted. The old version gives me the option of choosing 'My contacts' and 'Contacts'. In Beta this does not work.
