    Outlook is doing a much better job of managing other contact managers like Google contacts, but the search functionality is weak for these records. it seems to search only the name field. either an option should exist to search other fields or when an initial search returns a nul set it should automatically search again using all available text field.

    You currently allow a user to display contacts from more than one source. The problem is, users don't know where the contact info that they are viewing is coming from (and therefore can't correct it). Color coding the contact info by source (green for Gmail, magenta for Microsoft mail, yellow for Yahoo, etc.) would give users an immediate visual clue where they need to go to change/delete/add to the information. For linked contacts, the sections that come from Hotmail/outlook.com would be colour coded differently from the sections coming from Gmail or exchange.

    the app can display contacts from a variety of apps, but it does not allow edits or additions to any of the records. While that is reasonable for Gmail and other contact lists, it should not extend to contact lists hosted on outlook.com where you control the synchronisation strategy.

    I have to day that for the folks that developed the best desktop email program, your contact management feature has been a bit of a fiasco. Lost contacts, the inability to maintain contacts from outlook.com, poor or non-existant syncing with other contact management apps are just a few of the problems with the outlook for android app. I am sticking with you because no one does it better on the desktop than you guys, but it is really painful.

    The new version of outlook contact management does a reasonable job of displaying contacts from multiple places, but it isn't clear where the contact info is coming from. when you see a contact, it could be from your Hotmail account or from your Google account. since you can't edit the contact in outlook, of you see a problem, you have to know where to go to fix the problem.
    either colour coding the info by source or highlighting the source some other way would make the tool far more useful.

    Contact management is crucial to success of Outlook for android. It needs to be able to import from any contact list, and to synchronise with hotmail and gmail contact lists.

    It needs to give you the ability a
    to add, edit and delete contacts. If a contact is "owned" by another app like android contacts, we, at least, must be able to see the contact info from that app, but add info that is maintained by outlook.

    while you can see outlook.com folders in the app, you can't add or modify folders.
