  1. Contacts from phone

    I have selected to to sync contacts to OWA and yet it seems not syncing immediately. Does it take time to sync? Should I wait for a specific time to sync my phone contacts to OWA? Please confirm thanks!

  2. Duplicate Contacts...

    We have started testing OWA for our iOS users. A few have complained about duplicate cobtacts.

    I checked mine and I do have a few duplicate work contracts, but, not all.

    Anyone having this issue?

    Thanks

  3. Dial phone numbers through the app

    I 'm using using this app for a couple of weeks and quite happy about it
    Unfortunately since a couple of days I'm not able to search a contact and try to call him through the app since it dia the number starting by 2BS, replacing the 00 for every National and international contact
    It's a bit tricky since it used to perfectly work...?

  5. Screen Design for Readability

    If you were going to design a screen for readability when you want the information that you're seeking to obtain to be larger and bolder compared to the label for the field itself? This design is fundamentally flawed.

  8. Clear Contacts

    Can we not just erase out ZoEA contacts and then import a fresh copy from Office 365? All these old contacts drive me crazy and my updated info creates duplicates. Thanks.

  12. Contact distribution groups

    In previous versions of OWA you could automate the creation of local distribution lists by pasting in multiple names in the format
    Firstname Lastname email@address ;
    Firstname Lastname email@address ;
    Etc

    in this version you cannot do this. For the teachers in our school this version is a downgrade from the previous version as they would create student contact groups for their individual classes. Please can you provide some mechanism were you allow multiple names, addresses to be created in one action.

    Many thanks

  14. Syncing Outlook Contacts Mac Computer to iPhone

    Can anyone explain to me why it is impossible to sync my Outlook contact list between my Mac computer and my iPhone. This is the most basic functionality I can imagine. Is anyone able to explain this?

  15. Contacts

    I have my contracts organized in Outlook in different folders. Unfortunately they do not show up in OWA. It would be nice if the folders showed up with my contracts.
