  2. Public folder - contacts- display problem

    Some of our users have problems viewing contacts in a public folder containing contacts.

    The problem is that when you search for a contact in the list and the current display setting is "Contacts", if you open the item to see the details, there are fields that are empty or the data is erroneous.

    You can see all the good and missing details if you change the current display "Contacts" to "Business Card".

    I opened a Microsoft ticket on this in the past and the Exchange Online support team was able to reproduce the problem on their side with an…

  3. Extension Attributes/ Custom Attributes

    In our on premise Exchange, we exposed (and relabeled) Extension Attributes 1 - 4 in the address book. Can we get the option to customize pages in the address list in O365? Or is there a way to expose those attributes in SharePoint online by lookup?

  5. No easy access to contacts -- why?

    Inconvenient that there is not a contact list directly available when in Outlook e-mail. Instead have to go to another Outlook webpage.

  6. Contact lists in Surname order but not when added to email

    I have created several contact lists and sorted the contents in Surname order. Why though when I add the contact list to an email does it show in First name order?
    This makes it extremely awkward to check I am sending my email to all the people I need to.

  7. Automatic contact linking

    My contacts are linking automatically if they use a joint email account which is deleting one of the contacts. This causes a major headache as I am getting texts and calls and it no longer has the other persons name as it automatically linked it

  9. Yomi-name contacts not in order with English ones!

    Outlook People (Web version) does not put contacts with a Yomi (phonetic) name (such as Chinese) along with all 'normal' English contacts. The UWP app can do that, however.

  10. Contact name in email

    In the email address line some names do not appear, just the email address. Ok, it still sends, but it looks untidy and also gives the impression that person is not listed in your contacts. It`s an issue that comes and goes. Within People, the name is there, but not always on email.

  11. Change for sake of Change is extremely annoying.

    'People' moved to bottom of page. I spent ages looking for it. It used to be at top of page. Why on earth do you keep messing about with this program, or 'app' as we now have to call it? I'm off to find another email program.

  13. Contacts iPhone sync back

    When I edit outlook.com People, they synced to the iPhone.
    When I edit contacts on iPhone, they are not synced back to outlook.com.
    Please change that.

  14. Contact List Problem

    Contact List problem: I have contacts that I added months ago. However, when I add them to a Contact List (and enter them by name), the software cannot find them. Thus I have to add them under their email address. Sometimes people have very obscure email addresses and it makes this very difficult. One of my contact lists has 12 people on it - 2 of them can only be added with their email address so their name does not show up on the list. The other 10 show up with both their name and their email address. Can you…

  16. Outlook.com People: Deleted folder not populated if deleted from app

    If you delete a contact from Outlook.com, they go into the Deleted folder in People. HOWEVER, if you delete it from your phone, computer, etc., they are permanently deleted. This is poor behavior. If a contact is deleted from a device, it should go into the Deleted folder.

    tldr:
    This would resolve much of the problems out there of not-computer-savvy people accidentally deleting all their contacts. Some people don't realize that their contact list is synced across devices. So, when getting rid of a device, they delete everything (including contacts) on it, not realizing that they are also deleting their…

  17. People/contacts not clear

    Linking several contacts removes them from the All Contracts list and there is not explanation as to how to find them or work with thim, or Unlink them. Further, there is no easy way to copy contacts from All Contacts to a contact list and Outlook emptied my contact lists since I set them up in 2014. Very hard to work with, nothing at all like Hotmail was before you absorbed it and ruined it.

  18. Tie contacts to Events

    It would be helpful if Contacts/People could be tied to Calendar Events- so there was a history (or link to the event) under the Contact's listing. Not every event is a Meeting- make a way to show Calls and Emails (or let us define a few ways).

  19. Personal Web Page Field Data Mapping

    For O365 (Web) contacts is there a "Personal web page" field, and also a "Web Page" field? I assume this is due to my syncing my contacts with my IPhone contacts. However, both show on the "Contact" tab, but when you click on Edit Contact, you only see the "Personal Web Page", and NOT the "Web Page" field? Seems this is a data mapping issue, especially for company web pages.
