How to add a new contact

September 25, 2006

If you need to add a new person to an address book, start by making sure you are in the correct address book. Then click the New Card button. This will create a new card in the address book you have highlighted and brings up a form for you to fill out. There is a drop down menu at the top of this form that allows you to change which address book this contact will go into, in case you selected the wrong address book. This form allows you to put in their name, address, any phone numbers you have, two email addresses, as well as their birthday, spouse’s name, and much more. When filling out the name form, be sure to separate the first and last name. It will automatically fill out the Display field if you keep them separate. When you are finished, hit the ok button and that contact should be in the address book.
