  3. 'People ' should be called Contacts.

    'People ' should be called Contacts. sometimes it's a company that;s not a 'human' , thats a firm, an operation lol, not a people/person. ?? People is an awful label for CONTACTS.

  5. lost ability to use contact list from mail to address email or to invite guests to event in calendar

    Missing capabilities now that new Outlook has been pushed out with no ability to roll back. Use contact lists extensively in the organization to invite people to calendar event and also to address emails from Mail. Is this coming back? If so, when? This is a huge loss to our organization with no means to revert back to the old version.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Master Repository for Contact Data

    Outlook seems not to have a People/Contacts Function of its own ... It is somehow dependent on the "Native Contacts App" in Android.
    Since Contacts and the various details related to Contacts are REQUIRED ALMOST EVERYWHERE (email, calendar invites, WhatsApp, SMS Texting, many other apps) Why doesn't Microsoft/Outlook take the role of "Master Repository FOR ALL Contact Data" and then allow it out into the other apps as required ... Outlook is sucking data from "Android Contacts" when it should be Blowing Data out to such Apps.

  10. Gender choice (New rule)

    What if you could choose what gender you are when signing up for an outlook account, so that when students might have to send them something, they could create a rule that in every email it starts with 'Hey sir/miss*, hope you are well....'

    *With this rule, you could eliminate and choose what pro noun would suit the recepitent of the email

  11. 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…

  12. Selecting "All Contacts" to blind copy entire contact list

    G-mail has a way to select all contacts when sending an e-mail to everyone in your contact list instead of creating a whole new group. It also allows you to blind copy an entire group. This is especially helpful when using an e-mail account for business or schools, which may require confidentiality with contacts personal e-mail addresses. I can't do this in Outlook.

  13. 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!!!!
