Create new contacts from the same company

You can use the New Contact from Same Company feature to reduce time and effort when adding multiple contacts from the same company or other organization that shares the same basic contact information among its members.

After you have entered the contact information for one contact from a company, it becomes a "template" on which other contacts can be based. You can do this with contacts that people send to you, too.

Note: This feature works with any contacts that have information in common; the contacts do not specifically need to be part of a company or other organization.

The contacts that you create from this template contact will contain information from the following contact form fields (if included in the template contact):

  • Company

  • Web page address

  • Business phone number

  • Business Fax number

  • Business address

After creating a new contact from the template, you can personalize the rest of the information as necessary for each individual. The contacts will be automatically saved in the same folder as the original contact.
