Can't add new contact to existing contact list that isn't in directory
I can't add a contact to an existing contact list that isn't in the directory. I had to switch back to the old version to add it.
It would be convenient if we could change which contact list to be shown in the default when opening the Add recipients menu in the Ootw mail creation window.

I too tried to add a contact to an existing contact list (each list is a group of current students and I do not wish to add my students into my contacts.) In order to change a student's email address, I had to add her to my contacts, then add her to the appropriate Contact List. Pretty frustrating that the ADD button doesn't work in EDIT CONTACT LIST.
Auto add to contacts and notif if contact is not yet in the directory. I would like that the emails I regularly exchange with will automatically be added in my directory. And perhaps I will be notified in the email if I want to add the contact so I don't ave to manually add contacts one by one. What will happen is I will just supply additional information instead.
I am ANGRY. I've been trying for TWO HOURS to find how to add contact groups to the global address list. I can add one to my personal contact list but there doesn't seem to be any way to make it available company-wide. Online help has been great for finding other people asking the same question but no answers. THIS IS BASIC FUNCTIONALITY, why is it so obscured?
Want to just add a contact's calendar in my calendar view by searching their name, currently need to click 3-4 times

It would be useful (to me, at least) if it were possible to create a contact list from the list of recipients (+ sender) in a mail, using the 'More actions' list of mail. Now one has to create a contact list manually when one wants to start communicating with a new group.

There were some new assocviates addedto my department and I was unable to add their emails to my contact list.

I'm the same - it wouldn't allow me to add a new contact in the new version but I could add a new contact list or contact group no problem? Had to switch back to classic outlook to just add a contact!

I can't add a new contact on a group.

To further clarify, in the older version, when you clicked the field for "to", "cc," or "bcc," formerly, a new window would pop up with contacts from which to choose. This feature has been disabled in the new platform.
In order to search for contacts, I was required to leave mail, go to contacts and select the people to whom I wanted to write an email.
yes absolutely need this on the new format

Can't seem to associate a Contact to a Contact List now. With the old version, all I had to do was select the contact and then I could use the "Lists" menu item to Add them to one of my existing "Contact List" entries.
