  1. The ability to initiate a Teams Chat from an outlook contact

    When viewing the Contact Card of an email recipient (clicking the recipient's name/address) there is an option to initiate a chat with the individual. However, this appears to default to Skype. However, Teams is my primary chat agent. I assume since Skype is set to sunset, Teams will be integrated, but in the interim, a user should be allowed to set their preferred default chat agent is. Since I don't use Skype, this initiate chat action is useless, but a much needed/desired feature.

  2. Use native contacts on macOS

    The recent update enabled contacts however they are exactly the same as always, I still cannot access my apple contacts from within Outlook which means there is no way to store my iPhone and Outlook contacts in one place (I sync these across from iOS too)

  3. My Computer Contacts

    In current Outlook, my contacts are in the My Computer folder. New outlook does not display them.

    How can you design a "New" Outlook that doesn't have same functionality of the Old Outlook.

    And when the Old Outlook is no longer an option, how do I get my contacts?

    Bad design.

  4. Avoid to truncate email address

    When we open a contact file it truncates the email address when it is a long one.

  5. Group Notebooks + Meeting Notes

    The windows version of outlook with groups has a button to access the group onenote/sharepoint. Also the windows meeting form has a sharepoint meeting notes button that would be appreciated.

  6. Re-add IMAP Directory Search

    I no longer have the ability to search our institutional directory. Memorizing 10,000 email addresses or adding them local is pointless, when I have access to a perfectly good IDM system.

  8. Need to Enable the sort of People by Last Name or Company.

    Provide the ability to sort People by Last Name or Company name (or any field) to view the contacts in that order.

  9. Adding photos to People (contacts) should override the profile portrait on incoming emails

    When a new email comes in, it should show with the photo that you've specifically assigned to the contact. I've done this and the photos still show just the user initials, even more confusing if it comes from a company email service that puts the last name first.

    Also, the photos seem to work differently on the web then on the apps for iOS/Mac.

  10. create New Collaboration group in new outlook in macOS

    There is no feature to support Groups or contact lists in new Outlook for macOS. When you switch from old to new, the Lists are not visible and neither can one create new lists
