Office 365 (Outlook for Windows) - Add a Contact
You can capture and organize information about people by saving new contacts in your address book. Contacts are like electronic cards that save a person's contact information. A contact can be as basic as a name and email address, or include more information like a street address, multiple phone numbers, and a profile picture. Once you’ve saved someone as a contact, you can type the first few letters of their name into an email, and Outlook will fill in their email address for you.
In the navigation pane on the bottom left, click on the icon that looks like people.
From the Home tab in the New group, click New Contact or press Ctrl+N.
Tip To create a contact from anywhere in Outlook, press Ctrl+Shift+C.
- Enter a name and any other information that you want to include for the contact.
- If you want to immediately create another contact, click Save & New (this way, you don't have to start over for each contact). After you're done entering new contacts, click Save & Close.
- Want to add another contact from the same company? Just click the little down arrow next to Save & New, and then select Contact from the Same Company.
