  1. 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?

  2. Search fails

    Why does searching on business/company name no longer. There should be an all content search on the contact card.

  4. Contacts birthday

    Unfortunatly, I have to switch from my beautiful Windows Phone to Android. On Android I have installed the outlook app and want to synchronize all my outlook contacts with the Android contacts list. Pictures, mails Adresse, home addresses and phone numbers were synchronized. HOWEVER, The birthdays were not synchronized which is really bad! And when adding a new contact there are only limited person informations that can be added. Even birthdays cannot be added. PLEASE FIX!

  6. distribution list selecting contact email address

    Currently when adding a contact to a distribution list, if the contact has multiple e-mail addresses, the distribution list will default to using the first e-mail address associated with that contact. Currently the work around is to create an individual contact card for each e-mail address, which makes for a messy contacts database and difficulty in tracking contacts. The ability should be added to allow users to select which e-mail address is used when adding a contact to a distribution list.

  7. Sent emails in Inbox

    The emails I have sent pop up in the Inbox, even if not part of a conversation. This is confusing and takes up space

  8. New feedback

    I add names to contacts and then try to put names into a contact list. Some go fine, others indicate that the name can't be found even though I can see them as a contact. This version is incredibly frustrating and annoying.

  10. Can't Move Contact with Birthday

    When moving a contact from a PST to the main repository and that contact has a birthday entry, I am asked if I want to add the birthday to the calendar. If I click "No", Outlook states it cannot move the contact.

  11. Date format is ignored when displaying birthdays

    I chose in the outlook.com settings to show dates as 01/09/2021 for Sept 1st (European DD/MM/YYYY format). However, this setting does not appear to be applied when displaying the birthday of a contact - I see 8/1/1950 for someone who has their birthday on August 1st. When I edit the birthday, it shows correctly as August 1, but when in the normal view, it swaps the birthday to the US format MM/DD/YYYY

  12. I would like to be able to record my name, and hear how others say their names

    I would like to be able to record my name, and hear how other people say their own names in Outlook and Teams. We have a diverse workforce and pronouncing names is often just guesswork and it is frustrating. It should be possible to hover over someone's name in Outlook and click on a speaker icon or something to hear them say their name.

  13. Combine People from Microsoft and Gmail account

    In the People App in Windows 10 both accounts are shown in one list. You can see if a contact is from Gmail or Outlook or both at "How you're connected".
    In outlook.live.com/people/ they are two separate lists (different browser tab). It should be one list so that the app and browser version have the same behavior and the same contacts.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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!

    I import contact from google contact to outlook via excel file. I upload 2 times fail and 1 time successful. I see many duplicated contact in my list. So I delete all before re-upload. Last time, upload successful.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
