  1. "Recent People" list naming

    The title of the "Recent People" list that shows up when you left click on the "To" field during a new email draft is somewhat misleading. While the list CAN be a list of recent people, it would be more accurate for it to be a phrasing something along the lines of "Frequently Contacted" instead, since the Autocomplete cache is run on a weighted system and the suggestions listed from a single click are what the Outlook heuristics determine are the most heavily contacted individuals in the Autocomplete list. Right now there is room for misinterpretation for "Recent People" to…

  2. .wab file import

    Create the possibility to import contact information from an old .wab file (from Outlook Express) into Outlook.com.

    Alternatively, provide a simple utility to read .wab files and output the information into a .csv file, which seems to already be supported for transferring contact information.

  4. Link people to calendar event by cell number instead fo an email

    As email address is no longer dominating method of people/contact identification in address book, now it is cell phone numberis main id method of contact identification that would be quite useful feature to link people from address book to calendar event using cell phone number. At the present time it is possible just for contact which email I have.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Let us un-set contact photo

    There should be a way to "unset" contact photo. I have a bunch of contacts from back when contacts were imported from Facebook, I think it was, and they have somewhat nonsense/old photos that I'd like to restore to the two-letter badge. That'd be more useful than old photos, especially on contacts that are just an email address imported from Facebook.

  8. Outlook issues

    I do not like OUTLOOK!! First is could not find "People". Then when I tried to set up a group, My Name came up first and then the 8 others I added were only listed by e-mail. I HATE THAT!!! How can their names by Listed instead of the circle with a letter and an e-mail which means diddly squat. You are not user friendly at all. The improvements SUCK.

  9. Delete duplicates instead of linking

    The merge function for contacts should actually MERGE information in a single contact, instead of linking two identical ones!

  10. reset child password

    It should be much easier for a parent to reset a child's password without needing to change an account type or delete/re-create the account. The password security question answers are being rejected as insufficient, even though there's nothing else I can add. I can't reset it from the Family settings (even though I could delete the account from the family, and create a new account, but that means the email address will change.).

  13. Tags to contacts

    Can you please add tags to contacts, similar to photos, so that contacts can belong to different groups ? This not for the same use as contact lists, but to share groups

  15. Outlook for IOS does't work properly with Outlook.com

    It's really a shame. After using Outlook since the 1990's I have had enough. Enter a new contact into the Contacts app on your iPhone and it appears at Outlook.com on the web, but does NOT appear in contacts in Outlook for IOS. Enter a new contact in Outlook for IOS on your iPhone and it appears on Outlook.com and in the Contacts app on the iPhone, BUT if you then close everything and go searching for it in Outlook for IOS, only the first phone number shows up. At the same time, the whole thing shows up in the…

  16. I think having yellow colored people emojis by default that cannot be changed is UNACCEPTABLE

    How is it possible that the color of the people emojis is stuck on yellow? Why are there colors offered if they can't be changed? Why can't my emoji people have dark skin??? Unacceptable! Outlook.com Support and the engineers team says "it can not be changed" Ridiculous!

  17. show date a contact was added to your contact list

    When you add a new contact in your contact list I would like it to show the date added. Is that a current option other than putting something in the Notes section. I want to know when I added contacts.

  20. Separate People with shared e-mail address forces only one name

    Basic scenario. I have Jack Smith and Jill Smith. Each has their own phone number, but share an email address.

    In Outlook, one would think that I could just create two new contacts. I attempt this, and it asks me if I want to create this as a new contact or merge because both individuals have the same email address. I choose to create a New Contact. After creating this new contact, I have to close and reopen Outlook for it to show up.

    Here is the issue. If is still retain the same email for both contacts, even with…
