Other Contact Actions
This section describes some of the other actions you can perform with contacts.
Viewing a Map of the Contact’s Address
If a contact has a valid address entered, you can click the Map button on the Contact ribbon to open
a web browser and view a map of the specified location. This feature is powered by the Windows
Live Local web site, which provides other services such as driving directions and business search.
Inviting the Contact to a Meeting

a new meeting request addressed to the contact, as shown in Figure 10.28. You can specify the
subject and location, enter the date, start and end times, and include a message. You can also add
other recipients to the request. You learn all about meeting requests in Chapter 12.
