Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open your Outlook server side pane with an e-mail selected.
  2. Click on option Contact to start creating a contact based on selected e-mail.
  3. In Account field type some words to bring up auto-suggestion based on what you have typed.
  4. Notice that suggested accounts have only three basic information.


The suggestion is limited to three fields only by design.


The suggestion is limited by three fields only, but you can adjust the order of the fields based on Basic View configuration, so it will get the first three fields from basic view to show up there:

  1. Go to Groupware Settings work center view.
  2. Profiles tab.
  3. Select the profile which you want to edit.
  4. Go to Add-In tab.
  5. Within Account tile card click on the tab Basic View.
  6. Adjust the four fields in the order that you desire, so the first three from the four available will be available in auto-suggestion.
