Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new contact, part of Outlook 2013 Essential Training.
Creating contacts is an easy way to stay in touch with your clients and…customers without having to remember their email addresses and phone numbers.…You can add a contact manually or directly from an email.…To add a contact manually, we're going to go into our People hub.…If I click People on the navigator, I'm going to get taken into what's…called the People hub.…This is a simplified view of all my contacts.…Now if I want to change that view, I can select Business Card, or Card view.…
But I'm going to go back to the People hub for now.…To create a new contact, select New Contact from the HOME ribbon and now, we can…put in as much or as little data as I have about that contact.…If I have more that one email address for a contact, I can simply use the pull…down menu and choose another one and then put it here.…I can even come here to the Notes section and add some notes about that contact.…Now you'll notice the business card in the top corner is being populated for all…this data that I've put in.…
