Open Contacts

 

Welcome

After installing Open Contacts, you may create a new working directory with contact data and templates for the program to work on. You can make the address book data be used by you only, or a few users, or all users.

Each shortcut created by this "Locate Working Directory" window points to the program and the working directory. Double-clicking on the shortcut will launch Open Contacts working on the desired working directory.

To quickly get impression of the features, you may click on the Demo Data link of the program in order to load an address book file with demo data.

    

You can then switch back to your default address book by clicking on the Live Data link

A few tips of starting:

1. Fields are grouped by section.

2. When adding a new contact, the program will add some frequently used fields for you, and you may add unlimited fields of sections. You may pick up a field name from the drop down list, or just key-in one. Frequently used operations of editing have keyboard shortcuts.

    

3. The Action button has content awareness. For example, when you focus on an Email field, it will be for creating Email with the Email address; when on an address field, for calling map services.

You may check the download page for the latest updates.

If your monitor is using a display setting of Large Size (120 DPI), you might need to adjust the layouts of windows of Open Contacts and save the layouts.
