Customize the profile card in Win32 apps using registry keys

As an admin, you can replace some labels on the Contact section of the profile card in Office 2013 and Office 2016, using registry keys. For example, your organization might have additional attributes that you want to show, like Employee ID, Cost Center, etc.

To replace labels and values using registry keys, you must provide the following information:

  1. Value # of the label you want to replace (See Table 2: Contact labels on the profile card). Note: Some labels cannot be replaced. If you indicate a label that cannot be replaced, a new label will display on the profile card. For details, see Table 2: Contact labels on the profile card.

  2. MAPI value and/or AD attribute name of the field you want to show on the profile card. See Table 3: Active Directory attributes.

Note: Changes you make will only show in Office Win32 apps. Changes will not show on profile cards in applications like Outlook on the web or OneDrive for Business.

Note: Back up your registry before making any changes.
