To add a new contact in Outlook 2016 for Mac, you can click New Contact and complete the form. Even easier, in an email message, you can click the contact's name, and then click the contact card icon to create a new contact.
- [Instructor] To add a new contact, simple enough,…simply click New Contact.…I get a new blank contact…and can click and fill in information.…That's possibility one.…Under New Items, notice I also have the ability…to create a contact here.…But there's a sneakier and better way to create contacts.…For example, if I want to add Nick Allen…to my list of contacts, right here,…if I click it says Presence Unknown.…There's just not a lot of information.…
I'm going to open the contact card.…Notice that it automatically moved Nick's name…and Nick's work email address into this contact already.…Now, if I minimize this and I had some other information…about Nick right here,…I could've copied this previously if I wished.…I'll open this back up.…And I can go to Notes and paste it in there.…That's kind of cool.…Organizational information.…
It's actually looking for this in the directory.…But if I go back to my notes, and Nick's at MIT,…and I can select this,…cut it,…paste it.…There's his job title.…Paste it.…By dropping it in the notes,…
