    In the outlook mobile app, Remove the restrictions on the location field to include phone numbers and physical addresses that are clickable to open the respective apps.

    I am constantly on the go in my vehicle moving from one client to the next and nothing is worse than seeing a conference number with a conference ID in the location field that I cannot click and dial. I have to write down the phone and conference details and dial it manually.

    Similarly, when going to an external address, being able to click on an address in the location field to open a maps app to help direct me there would be great.

    Both of these features "PREVIOUSLY" worked but have recently been removed. Please bring them back.

    Im a consultant driving sales at many clients - having the ability to input the client address, which is clickable to open a map, would be a huge help to getting me where I need to be.

    Similarly, if the meeting is a conference call, allowing a conference number to be in the location field that is clickable to open the phone dialer would be great,

    This used to work and was taken away - please bring the feature back instead of limiting the location field to an "outlook meeting room". Too many people rely on their calendar to drive their daily business, and restricting the location field impacts many people.
