  2. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  18. Scroll feature to jump to contact

    Need. List on sides to click to a certain letter instead of having to slide down 5 minutes to get to the "r",,,, how can you really produce a contact list without this!!!!

    Have you ever seen an iPhone!!!!!! Such a elementary thing not to have.

  20. Contact Syncing - STOP

    The app synced with my existing contacts meaning it doubled contacts for people. This meant that I had to go through and delete those. In addition, it included contacts I did not want in my phone's contact list. They may have been people I did not know and simply had been included in a group message or Spam I received.

    What you think is being helpful is simply interfering with people's personal contacts. STOP!
