    Currently Outlook bundles email, calendar and contacts into a single app. This in my opinion does not work well on mobile devices where a task based flow works better. Separate outlook into individual apps one for email, one for calendar and another for contacts. This would allow faster iteration of ideas and features. Having email and calendar grouped into a single app does not make sense to me (although it might to others) Windows 10 has separate apps for mail and calendar and contacts, so does outlook.com on the web why is android different. Separate apps make more sense, and I'm aware that widgets can be used but it's not the same. When dual screen devices come out how can I look at my email and calendar at the same time? Two separate apps would make this child's play to do.

    Currently physical addresses of contacts are only text that can be copied. It would be convenient if these real world addresses could be clicked an opened in the users preferred mapping application/website.

    On outlook.com I use conversation view. My preference is 'newest on top'. The android app should respect the settings on outlook.com (or it should at least allow me to manually set the same preference). It's very jarring when moving from the Desktop to mobile. When on the Desktop the latest response is at the top (and thread history below) to have the android app open to most recent response (which is at the bottom) and then have to scroll up to see the conversation history. Inconsistencies like this detract from much outlook has improved.

    I agree if the birth year is not known or entered then the date and month are sufficient to show. Showing 1603 as the birth year looks bad.

    It's not possible to set an event's start and end timezone via the android app, but it is possible via the web interface. Expose this functionality in the android app.

    It looks like this has finally been implemented!! When creating an event under more options there's a small globe next to the time that lets you select the start and end timezones!

    More than 2 years later and a feature I use regularly in google calendar still hasn't made it into outlook. I won't migrate without this functionality.

    This is quite a bug. Many contacts birthdays show up, but some contacts with Birthday details simply never appear in the Birthday Calendar even if you disable and re-enable the Birthday calendar. I'm quite happy to provide examples or to be contacted so this can be reproduced and fixed.

    As separate the people/contacts out as a separate app. Having it hidden away in the search is annoying and management of contacts deserves its own dedicated app. seperating mail/calendar/people would also allow development/new features of the individual apps to move faster

    Contact Addresses should be clickable and open in Bing Maps
