  2. Add multiple contacts to a contact list

    It is not possible to go trough All contacts and add one or multiple contacts to a contact list. Only in the list it is possible to lookup people an add them. This is not very practical and people which should be added are forgotten.

  3. 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

  5. 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

  6. new contacts

    Many of my contacts are businesses. Adding a new business contact requires too many click and select. The drop down box of previous is much more helpful.

  7. [Suggestion]:limit search to contacts in my contacts lists

    Hi,

    When I search for someone in Outlook People or in the To field of a new e-mail message in Outlook Mail (or even the search bar of Outlook Calendar), a number of contacts/e-mail addresses appear I do not know:

    Image

    Where do they come from and how can I avoid these names to appear?

    Kind regards

    Stijn

  9. Allow editing suggested contacts in the people tab

    Suggested contacts are no longer editable in the people tab. It would be nice to either edit them, or disable the suggested contacts list altogether.

  10. Display, sort and search contacts by nickname

    Please add an option to display contacts' nicknames (if entered) in the contact list instead of their full names, sort the contact list by nicknames, and display contacts whose nickname matches a search query in the search results.

  12. Bring back the Lists icon for each contact, so that I can see at a glance whether someone is on a list, rather than having to search the who

    Facility to check which contact lists a contact is on from that contact's entry in People. Managing Contacts in Classic had this feature. There was an icon to click on to see which lists an individual contact belonged to. This icon has gone in Beta version. Now I have to search through every contact list to see who is on or not. Very tedious and a waste of my time!

  13. 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?

  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.

  16. Birthday import uses wrong date format, mixes up MM/DD with DD/MM

    I'm based in the UK, where we use a DD/MM/YYYY date format. I've exported my Outlook (desktop) version contacts to a CSV file. Someone with a birthday on Sept 1st shows as 01/09/1900. Now I import that contacts CSV file into the "People" section in web Outlook.com. The person with birthday on Sept 1 is all of a sudden swapped around to have a birthday on Jan 9! All birthdays where the day is >12 are completely ignored, and I had to add them by hand.
    All this happens even though I have changed my date format on outlook.com to…

  17. 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.

  18. To duplicate a contact list

    Perhaps a development might help
    It would be good to be able to create a duplicate list that can then be slightly changed in order to create a new list.

    Example - if you have a list of 100 contacts and wish to create a new list for just 85 of those people, it would be easier to duplicate the first list, remove 15 people and create new list.
    Much easier than making a brand new list of 85 people!!!!
