  3. 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…

  4. Add a photo to your contacts

    Dear Outlook Support,
    The zoom feature is back, however, when I try to upload an image, it briefly appears until 'Done' is clicked on. As someone said on UserVoice, something about 'GMAIL does it this way.' As such, I would urge you to contact Google for assistance in how they go about uploading pictures. I am sure that the information can be freely exchanged.

    Keep at it,
    Ryan Robison

  6. Sync contacts between 2 microsoft accounts

    I have 2 Microsoft accounts and have contacts in one account. I have skype services in another. I am currently manually adding contacts in both accounts. There should be an ability to sync contacts between accounts. It will be really helpful. Please consider this

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  15. 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.

  16. There is a UI issue when 2 contacts share an email

    I have 2 contacts with the same email address. Different names, different phone numbers. If I click on one of the contacts, it shows their info correctly. If I then click to the other contact, only some of the info is correct. The phone number is still the one from the previous contact. However, if I click on a completely different contact and then click on the second contact, the information is displayed correctly. It appears that the details pane is not refreshing completely if the email address is the same.

  17. 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!!!!

  18. LinkedIn - Choose the matching profile

    I can’t connect email to my LinkedIn profile.

    Please add the ability to add a company profile in LinkIn to an Outlook contact, and not just personal profiles.
