  1. Add a Second Line in the Street Address Field in Contacts

    Need a second line for entering street addresses to include Suite numbers, Apartment numbers etc. instead of having to add on the first line with a comma separator.

  2. continue the "advance search" feature for contacts and filter by categories

    I use Outlook as my CRM for my sales job. 90% of my contacts are tagged or categorized with custom categories. I use the Advance Search feature in contacts to filter by specific category. Not having this ability is a major inconvenience and will force me to stop using Outlook to effectivelly manage my contacts database.

    If you get rid of this feature, I don't know what the purpose of categories will then be?

  3. Contact view

    More view options including Cards and list with panel on right with details. Current view is very poor compared to other solutions like Mac or emclient

  4. Could you please create an additional "business card" view for the contacts? A similar view existed in an older version of Outlook..

    In a former version of OUTLOOK, the PEOPLE view allowed to place all contacts in a "business card view" where one contact is next to the other.... filling the whole page... then scrolling down for searching contact details was much easier and more efficient, especially if you treat more than 1,500 contacts.

  7. Add/remove/rearrange columns in People and sort by column header

    Right now you cannot add, remove or rearrange columns in People section, and they are automatically pre-grouped in Name (instead of First/Last Name) and Title and Company (instead of 2 separate Columns).
    I also cannot sort/search by Category, Title or any other field in the Contact.

  8. add the column Date Modified for sorting contacts.

    When looking at contacts, sorting by Date Modified is very important

  14. Would be nice to add tasks under People

    For example. If you have a client in your address book that you need to follow up with on a monthly basis, assign that tasks under the contact, and when it's time to follow-up you have all your notes and past interactions with that prospect in one view.

  15. Birthdays and anniversaries edited in Gmail contacts do not sync or update in new outlook, contacts calendar does not add edited birthdays.

    When I edit birthdays in my gmail account that is an active account in new outlook, the syncing is glitchy. The birthday years are wrong, or the birthdays do not show up at all. The contacts calendar in new outlook does not update with this new information either.

  16. Please make it possible to copy a physical address from a contact!!

    In my new Outlook I can't copy more then one line of an address from a contact. Please make it possible to copy the physical address and paste it elsewhere. This was also a mess in old outlook so that you had to have a special button to copy address. People need to do it all the time. Also not all contacts are "People". The name "Contacts" was just fine before. Thank you!

  17. Edit a Outlook contacts icon

    I like to be able to edit a Outlook contacts Icon from the current bubble showing their initials to a photo. Currently this feature is not available under the New Outlook for Mac.

  18. in People, when editing profile, having a selection for anniversaries

    in People, when editing profile, having a selection for anniversaries. when you select add additional information, the only choices you have are personal web page, business page, child, astrological sign, blood type and interests. there should be an area where you could add and make up your own information. I like to keep track of family anniversaries and there is no place in people that will allow me to add that information.

  20. Search contacts by something other than name

    Under "People" the search bar only finds results if searching by name. If you try to search by say, a company name, it will not return results. The old outlook would find results for your search term no matter what field that term was in. Please bring this back!
