    • Cortana to set up online meeting and understand names from a corporate address book

      Basically it's two suggestions which can be described by one request to Cortana "Please set up an online meeting with Bill Gates and Joe Belfiore tomorrow at 3 pm".

      1) Cortana should be able to set up a meeting and send requests / reminders to the named persons. These persons then confirm / decline their attendance.

      2) Cortana should understand who are you talking about (Names and Surnames). This should work even when these guys are not in your personal address book, but are in the corporate Outlook address book. I think that the best way is for Cortana to…

      • Bring back the notification pane on the Me tile

        The new action centre does not show the full text of mentions on twitter, it doesn't include the Facebook close circle updates, and it doesn't preserve the history so you can't easily go back to review notifications later. Please bring back the notification pane on the Me tile as an option to show these again

                • Please allow custom labels for phone numbers, emails, addresses. home 1, home 2, work 1, work 2 just doesn't cut it any more.

                  Please allow custom labels for phone numbers, emails, addresses. home 1, home 2, work 1, work 2 just doesn't cut it any more.

                  I want to label multiple telephone numbers for a frequent traveler as "mobile (usa)" or "mobile (aus)" or mobile (eur). Or for my favorite pizza chain as downtown and midtown. Or I don't want to create my customer's secretary as a separate contact instead I want to put her under my customer's contact card and label her phone as "Cindy".

                  It's a big reason why I and MANY others I know run away from windows phones as…

                  • Sync other Contact folders from Outlook, not just the default. Be able to view Contacts by folder.

                    Users have multiple Contact folders in Outlook / Exchange to keep their different kinds of contacts seperate (business, personal, vendors...) Allow syncing of those.

                    • remove contact pictures once set

                      I don't understand why you cannot delete a contact picture once you set it. This seems like a necessary feature to me.

                        • Smart Dialing

                          I would like smart dialing. If I punch in a number that is already saved, I would be shown the contact to whom the number belongs to.

                                • CalDAV and CardDAV support

                                  By supporting CalDAV and CardDAV, it will make things easier to jump from other phones. Other cloud services support these two technologies, so being able to support these on the phones will allow customers to switch as easily as possible.

                                  • Ability to select multiple contacts when sending SMS, sending email, adding to and deleting from groups, and deleting from people.

                                    We need the ability to be able to select multiple contacts to perform the following:

                                    - sending SMS/MMS
                                    - sending email
                                    - adding to and deleting from groups
                                    - deleting from people

                                    Maybe we can have an option that shows a check box to the left of each contact so we can make the multiple selection. It comes out only when multiple selection is needed.

                                    Thanks.

                                    • Sync OFF between WP8 People (Contacts) and Microsoft Account.

                                      Add a Checkbox to turn OFF the Sync feature between People and Contacts on Windows Phone 8 and the primary Microsoft Account. OR, add a Privacy Setting to Windows Phone 8 that turns off Syncing between all basic apps (including OneNote) and the primary Microsoft Account.
