  1. Delete duplicates instead of linking

    The merge function for contacts should actually MERGE information in a single contact, instead of linking two identical ones!

  2. reset child password

    It should be much easier for a parent to reset a child's password without needing to change an account type or delete/re-create the account. The password security question answers are being rejected as insufficient, even though there's nothing else I can add. I can't reset it from the Family settings (even though I could delete the account from the family, and create a new account, but that means the email address will change.).

  5. Tags to contacts

    Can you please add tags to contacts, similar to photos, so that contacts can belong to different groups ? This not for the same use as contact lists, but to share groups

  7. Outlook for IOS does't work properly with Outlook.com

    It's really a shame. After using Outlook since the 1990's I have had enough. Enter a new contact into the Contacts app on your iPhone and it appears at Outlook.com on the web, but does NOT appear in contacts in Outlook for IOS. Enter a new contact in Outlook for IOS on your iPhone and it appears on Outlook.com and in the Contacts app on the iPhone, BUT if you then close everything and go searching for it in Outlook for IOS, only the first phone number shows up. At the same time, the whole thing shows up in the…

  8. I think having yellow colored people emojis by default that cannot be changed is UNACCEPTABLE

    How is it possible that the color of the people emojis is stuck on yellow? Why are there colors offered if they can't be changed? Why can't my emoji people have dark skin??? Unacceptable! Outlook.com Support and the engineers team says "it can not be changed" Ridiculous!

  9. 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.

  12. 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. Add a photo to your contacts

    Dear Outlook Support,
    The zoom feature is back, however, when I try to upload an image, it briefly appears until 'Done' is clicked on. As someone said on UserVoice, something about 'GMAIL does it this way.' As such, I would urge you to contact Google for assistance in how they go about uploading pictures. I am sure that the information can be freely exchanged.

    Keep at it,
    Ryan Robison

  15. 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

  16. People Icon under All Apps

    When I am in desktop outlook mail and click the APPS dots icon to the left of the word outlook in the upper left, why would the people/contacts icon not be one of the main ones showing. you have to click All Apps to see People. That should be there in the first list.

  18. 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.
