  3. Contact info panel

    Could you please bring back the contact info panel?

    In old Outlook, when you clicked on the email address/contact, info panel showed up on the right side. You were able to see mails, files, events or schedule a new event.

    In the current implementation this feature is gone. When I click on the contact I see a few emails, files, but that's it. No schedules, nothing... And when I get outside of that window, it closes, so the whole view disappears.

  4. '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. Contact Lists / Groups needs to be more intuitive and easier to use

    To create a Group of Contacts, should be easy to do, and easy to then email to. We should be able to simply scroll through the list of contacts, checking boxes next to each name; from there it should be easy to not only email the selected contacts, but also create a Contact Group from that selection.

    Currently if you select contacts in this manor you literally cannot do ANYTHING to them. You can't delete in bulk, you can't create a new message to the selected, and you cannot create a Contact Group in this fashion. This is very confusing…

  6. no list

    Going to "People" no longer shows the list of contacts, just the first name. I'd like to be able to see every name on my list occasionally so I can decide whether or not to keep them as contacts. Also, when updating a contact's email address, I can't get rid of the old one, so I have to manually enter the whole new address to send an email to that person. Go back to the old way. You "fixed" what wasn't broke, and broke it.

  8. Contacts birthday shifted

    Birthday on contacts card ist shifted one day back, while in the old view the date is correct. Very annoying.

    Many functions missing: connected accounts, remove - add birthday calendar, rules and last but not least proper sync of contacts with Outlook!

  9. Only 50 contacts are displayed in a contact list

    Using Outlook.com Beta, only the first 50 contacts are displayed in a contact list. How do I display all 60 contacts.

  10. icloud contacts

    To import contacts in a vCard file to Outlook on a PC, you need to convert them from a .vcf file format to a .csv file format. This involves importing them to Windows, and then exporting them to the CSV file. If you have more than 50 or so contacts, this is a tedious process because you have to press OK for each contact you want to import to the csv file. Unfortunately, there's no way to do a global OK and import all of them to the csv file at the same time.

    Come on - simplify this please...

  11. Contacts

    In the old Outlook I had my contacts in categories. I could just type in that category and the names would come up. I no longer have that options. I have to now type in each name separately. Please return this feature. It was under manage contacts.

  13. Contact List

    Just recently a bunch of my contacts, especially my groups, became harder to find. They no longer come up when I am drafting a message. I discovered that I have to switch over to the "People" tab then click on "Contact List" just to find them. This is infuriating.

  14. Bring back Contact Groups!!

    Why don't you allow saved Contact Groups? Most of us only need 10 or fewer contacts (family, friends, colleagues) in a group. Why did you stop that function?

  16. Contact list

    I would like to see the ability to move or copy a contact from the All Contacts listing to one of the Contact lists that I have set up. This would save someone from having to go through your entire listing and copying the emails of the people you would like to add to that list. It would enable me to send emails much more quickly to those people.

  17. Contact list ruined

    My contacts list is all right, but emails will not bring it up. An email to Tabbycat@meow.com brings up the old address-every address with a t that I have ever used-a lot that I don't recognise-but never Tabbycat@meow.com.

    I have tidied the contacts list, but the contacts keep coming back-the old and deleted ones, never the new ones. I have to write these onto the email myself.

    The contacts list itself no longer shows old or unused addresses, only current ones, so why won't these appear at the tops of new emails ?

    It is incredibly annoying. I will…

  20. Beta Outlook Contacts Page

    Need to be able to sort my contact list by Company. Was able to do that in Classic Outlook but can't find a way to do it in Beta. Turned off Beta in Contacts for now. Not happy with Beta on my Mail page but can't find the button to turn off Beta on that page.
