In Depth Information
In the People module, you can view an address book in many different formats. You can
choose any standard view from the Current View gallery on the Home tab.
The standard view options for the People module.
Each view presents information from your contact records either as cards or in a list:
▪ People Displays only contact names in the contact list, and the available information
for the selected contact in the Reading Pane. Contact names are displayed in
alphabetical order by first or last name, depending on the File As selection. This view
displays information about the contact from multiple sources. For example, if you have
an Outlook contact record for a person you network with on LinkedIn and Facebook,
the People card displays a compilation of the information from all three locations.
This view, which is new in Outlook 2013, is the default view.
▪ Business Card Displays the business card associated with each contact record—either
the default card created by Outlook or a custom card if you have one. Business cards
are displayed in the alphabetical order specified by the File As selection.
▪ Card Displays contact information as truncated business cards that include limited
information, such as job title and company name.
▪ Phone Displays a columnar list that includes each contact’s name, company, and
contact numbers. You can choose the grouping you want from the Arrangements
gallery on the View tab.
Buttons in the gallery on the Arrangements menu of the People module
are available only while contact records are displayed in a list view.
