Contact record windows
When you create a contact record or display the contact record for a person or group of
people, it opens in a contact record window. The contact record window has its own
ribbon and Quick Access Toolbar, separate from those in the Outlook program window and
other types of item windows. You can insert, format, and work with information in a contact
record or contact group record by using the commands on the contact record window
A new contact record window.
TIP You save information in a field by entering it into the corresponding text box. Outlook
saves the information you enter as data attached to the item, and uses it in various ways.
Some types of fields have special rules attached that affect the appearance of the data in
the field. For example, phone number fields in contact records automatically format the
numbers you enter to match a standard (123) 456-7890 format.
