  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Sent emails in Inbox

    The emails I have sent pop up in the Inbox, even if not part of a conversation. This is confusing and takes up space

  5. 'People ' should be called Contacts.

    'People ' should be called Contacts. sometimes it's a company that;s not a 'human' , thats a firm, an operation lol, not a people/person. ?? People is an awful label for CONTACTS.

  6. delete system folder

    There are two ghost folders in my account that I cannot delete. LinkedIn Contacts and Google Contacts appear in my Outlook file, but don't show on Outlook.com (without a IE6 workaround). How can I get these folders out of there?

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

  9. 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.

  10. New feedback

    I add names to contacts and then try to put names into a contact list. Some go fine, others indicate that the name can't be found even though I can see them as a contact. This version is incredibly frustrating and annoying.

  11. contact list not updating. Very slow if it ever updates. Editing contacts in main People do not sync with contacts in Group

    No lagging time between editing contact details to actually able to see and use changes.
    Changes in Contacts should immediately be reflected and sync with contacts in group list. More intuitive email program, user friendly and more efficient.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Syncing contacts with People

    My contact list in Outlook.com is empty. I know. I can import the contacts with a CSV file from gmail. I have read that suggestion. But this is kinda complicated, I will have to do that regularly to keep it updated. When the vast majority owns Android phones, in Outlook app there is something missing and which could make outlook.com more attractive over Gmail - to sync Android contacts with People.
    This could be achieved with the Outlook app itself along with the calendar, or a separate android app simply called People which would sync the contacts to Outlook.com and…

  16. 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. New feedback

    Since the last "upgrade" to Outlook, I can't seem to add contacts anymore. Also, the contacts I do have, seem to still head to junk mail.

  18. Convergence between contacts and calendar

    There is a function of Google contacts that when you add the date of birth in the contact, it is automatically registered in the calendar as "birthday".

    This is one of the reasons why I still can not occupy the Outlook calendar.
    I would really appreciate it if you could apply it.
    Greetings.
