  1. Deceased contacts.

    Ability to mark contact as Deceased, with optional date of death? By default, these contacts woudl be hidden from your view, but remain in the complete list since this is relevant for matching old emails against the deceased friend/family member.

    (I'm a Microsoft employee, so feel free to email toma@microsoft.com if you have further ?'s...)

  5. Want to distinguish external/internal user by presence icon

    With Office Professional Plus, I can figure out external users by seeing their square presence icon as they are grayed-out.
    However, Office 365 ProPlus does not clearly show the difference of presence icon for external/internal users. It would be great you would improve user presence icon to be shown differently for external or internal users.

  6. AutoComplete feature also displays e-mail addresses that are not stored in contact folders!

    In all of these apps, email addresses are always displayed in the address and search fields, which are somewhere in emails, which one has gotten once - more precisely, in the recipient addresses of such emails.In the case of Outlook Desktop, this is the case if you write a new e-mail in the recipient fields, further up in the tool bar "Start> search for persons", continue in the online service Outlook.com resp. in the Exchange online variant, continue in the Outlook app for Android / iOS, when I search for a person (magnifying glass in the middle) and then select…

  8. There needs to be a field for business web page

    There is a personal web page field, but not a business web page field. This makes no sense to me.

  9. Add an option to sync contacts with Google Contacts along with their profile pictures.

    Add an option to sync contacts with Google Contacts along with their profile pictures.

    Currently, only Yahoo! Mail does have that option, but it comes in really handy at times.

  10. Add ability to auto cloud sync Google Contracts to Outlook Contacts. Newly added contacts on either services, will sync to other

    Add ability to auto cloud sync Google Contracts to Outlook Contacts.

    This will let us link our Gmail contacts to Outlook contacts/email contacts. If we added Contacts from Gmail/Google Contacts, it will be available to Outlook too. All the infos are added, including the contact images, in high resolution. Any edits or new contacts from each other will show to both

  13. Can't edit website added in Windows 10 app on the web, nor see website added on the web in Windows 10 app

    If I add a website for a contact in the People app on my Windows 10 PC, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Web page", but if I click on "Edit contact" on the web, the field "Web page" does not appear in the Edit contact window and I can't edit it. If I add a personal web page on Outlook.com on the web, it appears on Outlook.com under the label "Personal web page", but it does not appear in the Windows 10 People app.

    Please make the web app and the Windows 10 app synchronize and display the…

  14. Make labels of phone numbers and email addresses consistent with Windows 10 app

    Make the labels of phone numbers and email addresses the same on the Outlook.com website as in the Windows 10 People app. For example, People on the web says "Organization phone" and just "Email", whereas the Windows 10 People app says "Company phone", "Personal email" and "Work email". Both should say "organization" rather than "company" because it is more general and both should have the "personal" and "work" labels for emails.

  15. Google's export to CSV is not properly parsed by Microsoft's import from CSV.

    For contacts, Google's export to CSV uses field names that Microsoft's import does not understand. The result is the unknown fields are saved in the Notes field. This is very clumsy import and forces the user to perform LOTS of editing. You show an example of some fields in a few records in the .csv file, but not enough for the user to know the import of the CSV will result in a good set of contacts. You need to provide a mapping of what Google uses for field names to what you use for field names. Since Google and…

  16. Add merge option, instead of or in addition to linking

    Linking results in hidden entries. Later the user may not realize that a contact has linked entries (unless they happen to check). Rather than linking the contacts, especially after importing, add a Merge button that pre-selects the duplicate entries, presents the list, and lets the user merge the duplicates. Then there is just one entry per contact.

  19. LinkedIn integration improvements.

    Allow to search for LinkedIn account to attach with the contact.
    I have different name for a person, Outlook searches with that name only. Even if I have that person in my LinkedIn, there is no way to tell outlook that.

  20. UNLINK CONTACTS FEATURE

    Even though my contacts on the PC outlook version are ok, when viewing the same synced contacts on outlook.live, many contacts appear linked and messed up.
    For example :
    -Contact 1 has the a home number
    - Contact 2 has the same home number

    Outlook.live merges contacts 1 & 2 into one, which is wrong.

    I had to delete all contacts from outlook.live and use google people to resolve this,

    Please see that this feature is fixed or disabled.
    User must choose if and which contacts to be merged into one.

    Thanks. I believe this is very important!
