  3. Why can’t I see my boss’s contacts.

    They have been shared by him and I can see them in my laptop. I can see his calendar in OWA, but not his contacts.

  7. 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…

  10. EDIT contacts does not SAVE only DISCARD works - OWA 4 Android - waste of time & bad 4 business - too easy to forget to add on pc later

    Add new or Edit a Contact in OWA for Android DOES NOT SAVE - Editing totally fails and all your typing is wasting the only button that works is DISCARD! This is urgent to fix as contact editing is impossible. This is a deal breaker without that why use the app. Using on Samsung Galaxy 7 edge FYI. Updates on.

  11. Contact Dialog not effective!

    OWA caused duplicate entries in my iCloud contacts. This is not good; as I had 3200 contacts and now have 6400 contacts. What is your fix for this?

  12. Contacts circles

    Hi, if we have circles that show contacts pictures or their letters, why cant we use them in Mail tap to show the sender pic or his letter.
    Tha above can be later on used for easy selection for senders!

  13. REQUEST~ to add Texting Capabilities

    Within OWA, would it be possible to add a start link for the Messenger App?

    ...this way, when we open up a contact, we have a choice of either emailing them, or texting them directly, within the OWA App.

    can this be done?

  20. Delete one email address from a contact without having to delete the contact

    Can't seem to edit a contact on iPad to eliminate a painfully outdated email address from the contact without deleting the entire contact.
