Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing contacts, part of Outlook 2013: Tips, Tricks, and Shortcuts.
…The default view in contacts, is the business card view.…Which shows me exactly the same information, for each person,…it's the information that's on their business card.…So unless I've heavily edited some people's business cards,…I'm going to see the same basic stuff.…Now the downside of the business card view from my point of…view is it takes up space even if that space isn't used.…So I can see six people on my screen.…If I click Card, I see a lot more,…because it only takes up the space that is necessary.…
And if I make this wider so that I can see more information, you'll notice…that I actually can scroll sideways to scroll down in my list.…Speaking of lists, there's actually a List view, and a Phone List view.…So this is a quick way to make a phone list for folks I have phone numbers for.…I love the People View.…It's the closest equivalent to my default view of my inbox that I can get.…When I choose People View to the right I see a preview of that person's photo so…to speak.…So if I go find Mark notice I see all of his information.…
