  1. Contacts are broken

    Maybe this has something to do with integration with Android, but my contacts are all screwed up now. I have four separate contacts for one person, three for three different types of emails, and one that just has a photo. None of them have any information I have entered in the past including phone number, birthday, etc., and all four of them say "Add to contacts" even though they have obviously been in my contact list before. When I try to merge these contacts, they do not show up under the merge function, and when I try to edit a…

  4. Place calls via Skype from Contacts

    When I click a phone number in Contacts place a call via Skype in Outlook.com

    This seems like a obvious feature but for some reason is missing.

  5. Stop changing people's names

    I sent an email to someone, say "Maria@outlook.com". THEN I set her up as a contact in People, with the name "Social - Maria". Plus I added her to a contact Group List. BUT outlook keeps changing her name to "Maria" rather than keeping the name that I input of "Social - Maria".

    How do I get outlook to stop changing her name? I WANT THE NAME I INPUT.

  6. Add a flag to show "Linked Contacts" so when the incorrectly get linked, a user can easily find and unlink them.

    Right now the only way to find contacts that have been INCORRECTLY linked, is click on each contact, 1 by 1, until "Linked Contacts" appears in the heading bar. This is not practical. I have 2500+ contacts, and 6 of them were incorrectly linked by either Outlook.com or Android or iPhone, and I cannot find which without clicking through ALL 2500 of them? Doesn't make sense. Add a "sort by linked contacts" or something, seems so simple.

  7. Moving contacts to new folders

    I just discovered the Folders on the left hand side of the page. Why can't I drag and drop existing contacts into the folders I just made??? How do I move them from "contacts" to the new folder? Or how do I add them to the new folder?

    Also, I have contacts from companies I used to work for. I want to save the names and numbers, but I don't want to see them unless I am looking for them. I'd like to have them hidden from my regular contact list.

  8. outlook changes name of person in People

    I emailed someone, say maria@outlook. com. BUT then I set up Maria as a contact in Outlook People, with a prefix, so "Social - Maria". OUTLOOK keeps deleting my entry of "Social - Maria" and keeps listing her as Maria. STOP IT. IF I ENTER A NAME IN A CERTAIN WAY, LEAVE IT ALONE.

  10. My colleagues

    Hello ,
    I work as an admin staff and It's really time consuming when making a group chat where there is hundreds of company emails to add in the group .
    Right now , the only way is to add emails one by one which is very time consuming for me or maybe some others who work as an admin / office.

    I would like to suggest an idea like copy and pasting as much as emails as we want to , Example ( solari1@hotmail.com;solari2@hotmail.com;solari3@hotmail.com) Adding the " ; " Right beside the mail can…

  13. Error importing contacts with birthdays dd/mm/yyy

    Error with birthdays when exporting contacts and then importing contacts with date format dd/mm/yyy. When importing it appears that the import format required is mm/dd/yyyy hence dates are dropped or are day / month flipped.

  14. Intégration Calendar/Contact/Map

    What's going on with this outlook.com?
    When we add the address in a contact, it is not possible to see on the map Bing with a click? I have to copy and pass this address..
    2) When scheduling an appointment with a contact in the calendar there is no way to add a contact as a place.
    What kind of Outlook integration has?

  16. search in contacts should include the notes

    Search in Contacts (People) should include words in the Notes area. When I use Search, it should find Contacts that have that text in the --Notes-- area of the Contact. Thanks.

  17. Filter out contacts that don't have email or number

    This would be a great way of deleting contacts that aren't supposed to be there. Few years ago, I thought syncing with Facebook was a good idea. Now, my contacts list is filled with unneeded contacts.

  18. Exporting contacts is very limited

    There needs to be a way to export select contacts only or contacts in a contacts list.

  19. A much easier way to add contacts to lists is needed

    It can be added on the Manage button or as a separate button. Adding people by entering the contact name is a pain

  20. Filter out contacts that either don't have phone number or email address

    This would be useful for getting rid of contacts that aren't necessary or needed.
