  1. Updated to latest Android version, contact icon pointing to Outlook contacts give message that they don't exist.

    Contact icons give error message that they don't exist, issue came up after upgrading Android to Pie version today. Error only valid for outlook contacts, not for android contacts. 99% of my contacts are Outlook based.

      • people feed

        1. People feed: ask for permission to show the contact list but don't tell what permission, and great it go to Android setup page, but what and where to go to authorize it

        2. Calendar Feed: on the day without any events, show a big ugly Add Event Icon, could we have a option to chance it to a small simple + symbol icon?

        3. Feed and Report an Issue: could we have an option to upload a picture? "picture is 1000 words "

          • Direct dial pinned to homescreen shows wrong picture but dials

            I have pinned one contact with a direct dial on 'other number' to the home screen. After a day the picture shown points to another contact. It still dials and shows the correct number

                  • suggestion to pin a contact - contact is Franken contact of people who share our home number

                    suggested contact is actually a mixture of multiple contacts.

                          • I can't add contacts to group messaging. It tells me there are no contacts to choose even though I several contacts in the contact folder.

                            I can't add contacts to group for messaging. When I choose add contacts after creating the group, it says there are no contacts to choose from even though I have several contacts on the phone.

                                People wigdet does not respect dual sim configuration. All phone calls are made using default sim. It need to be changed. Otherwise people are useless. So I can not use frequent contacts.

                                  I've included a screenshot:
                                  https://1drv.ms/i/s!AioJJwemG-Tg1Pl9pjLHfjp69P2VEQ
                                  The contact in the top left corner - her name is not "Allen". She and her show up correctly in my Contacts app, and they're not linked in any way... so it has to be the People card/page in the Launcher that's missing them up.

                                      I can't sync my outlook contacts to my phone. In the past, signing into outlook or onedrive usually works but it hasn't. I installed launcher but my contacts still won't sync.
