  6. Group Contact: Creation and Editing

    I would like to reiterate other comments regarding the creation of group contacts on the app and mobile site. Also, even in the full site the addition of contacts to the group is limited to one contact. It would be nice to be able to add several contacts at a time (i.e. from an external mailing list) separated by commas/semi-colons.

  9. Contacts

    Keep synchronised contacts separated with in the app. When global (in the phone contacts) they create duplicate and triplicate contacts in the phone when I don't want them there.

  12. 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.

  13. Drag and drop receivers email add from Cc to To or Vice Versa

    It will be more efficient if moving the receivers email addresses from the To to the Cc or Bcc sections by simply drag and drop rather that deleting the whole thing and start all over again. This function is already available in other email accounts such as exchange.

  14. Email address

    When selecting and email address I should have an option to add it to my contact list, or copy it, or create a new email. Currently it only allows me to create a new email. In most instances I want to add the address to an email in my inbox so I can forward it to the one selected email account.

  16. Stop adding unwanted names to my phone contacts

    I use my phone contacts for phone calls, not for emails. I don't appreciate having unwanted names from my Outlook e-mail automatically added to my phone contacts without my permission, especially when duplicated multiple times. It takes me too long to scroll through my phone contacts now, and I don't have time to go through all of them to delete the ones I did not add in the first place.

  17. Share groups

    It should be possible to create groups then send them to others, or easily add all addressees in an email to a new group.

  19. Deleting contacts with old addresses

    Let's clear the air. OWA 365 wastes so much of my time.
    A simple thing like deleting a contact is IMPOSSIBLE!
    I've tried from OWA on a laptop and on my phone. I'm not a completely useless technophobe. I have plenty of skills and experience but OWA has a mind of its own!
    It's not intuitive. It selects old email addresses that you think you've deleted from a contact.
    Sort this out please.
    I'm done wasting my time with what should be simple procedures.
    My Y6 children could create something more user-friendly from scratch. Maybe they will!!
    I think you've…

  20. Adding people into groups

    It would be awesome if I could manage my groups from the app. There is no capability to add an individual to a group in OWA.
