Adding and editing contacts

For your convenience, all data fields in the contact editing dialog box are divided into 6 tab pages:
  • General - fields that are most frequently used at editing
  • Personal - detailed information about the person
  • Business - detailed information about the organization
  • All fields - grouped data retrieved from all fields of the current contact
  • The Comment and Alarm pages are identical to corresponding pages in the editing dialog box for Notes.

The General tab page

This tab page displays general information (of most frequent usage) about the current contact. It contains data on a person or an organization.

The General tab page appearance:

A group of fields used for editing a full name of a person is placed in front. Since the first, middle, and the last name, as well as the suffix, have a diverse sequence order in different languages, the position of these fields also depends on a selected language. The English sequence order is the following: first name, middle name, last name, suffix.
The full name of a person is displayed above these fields and is formed by the rule of name sequence forming. To change the full name sequence order, click the Order button (located in the same group of fields). This will call up the Forming the full name dialog box.

The Communication/Internet field group is designed for keeping contact data such as phone or fax numbers, e-mail addresses and other communication info relevant to this person.
Select and specify this or that way of communication - next time you call up the contact editing form, you will see fields in the same order as the last time you edited them.
Three field groups at the top refer to information about a person, last three groups are designed for data on an organization. Each way of communication has a corresponding button that calls up a certain action. For instance, clicking the "cellular phone" button calls up the dialing dialog box. If you click the e-mail button, your default e-mail client will be launched with this e-mail address in the address line of a new message. Clicking buttons calls up appropriate actions only if the corresponding field contains relevant data.
In the current version of the program, actions are available only for the buttons that correspond to dialing phone/fax numbers and sending e-mails.

The Company field displays the name of an organization.
The Associated phone field is designed for displaying a phone number associated with the given person or organization, i.e., here you can enter the most important or frequently used phone number.

The Display as field along with the Order button are designed for changing the appearance of the current contact in the contact list which is displayed in the main window of the program.
This field can be edited both manually and by selecting one of the options suggested by the program. Clicking the Order button calls up the Forming a title dialog box.

The Personal tab page

The Personal tab page is conditionally divided into 3 parts:
  • Detailed information about the person
  • Communication/Internet
  • Address
The non-editable Full name field indicates an option of displaying the full name selected on the General page.
The Gender field allows you to specify the person's gender selecting from the predefined values: Male, Female, or Unknown.

The Birthday and Wedding anniversary fields contain dropdown calendars that can be used to set corresponding dates.

To have a timely notification on a person's birthday and/or wedding anniversary, click the "alarm clock" button near the Birthday and/or Wedding anniversary fields:

This will open the Advanced alarm settings dialog box that can be used to set the corresponding alarm. The newly created alarm is displayed on the Alarm tab.

When you enter data in the Web-page field, the program takes it (regardless of its content) as a Web-page address. To go to the corresponding page, click on the nearby button.
You can use the Photo section to add a photo. To add a photo, click the Load button. This calls up the View image dialog box. If you already have a photo there, the name of this button will change to View.

The Communication/Internet field group, like the Communication/Internet field group on the General tab page, displays various ways of communication with the current contact. With the only difference that this group is used only for home phone numbers, e-mail, etc. If one of the fields has already been filled in on the General tab page, this page will also show this field with the entered data.

The Address field group combines fields designed for storing a postal address of the given person.

The Business tab page

Use this page to store information about the appropriate organization.
Like the Personal tab page, the Business tab page is divided into three parts.
In the first part, the Company field duplicates the Company field of the General tab page.
The Logo field group is designed for storing an organization's logo and is similar to the Photo field group of the Personal tab page.
The Chief and Assistant fields are used for storing names of chiefs and assistants (if required).
The Web-page field can contain a Web-site address of the given organization.
The second and third parts (Communication/Internet and Address) are similar to the corresponding parts of the Personal tab page. The only difference is that the Business tab page holds information about an organization.

The All fields tab page

Designed to display all editable fields.
Depending on the selected field group, you will see the following: All fields, Filled fields, Empty fields, fields that contain personal information - Personal, fields that contain business info - Business.
Data in this table is grouped by a type of displayed information. Like on General, Personal and Business tab pages, some fields have corresponding buttons that execute familiar functions. For instance, if there is a postal address in the table, placing cursor in this line will enable the button.
