Solo Tip Tuesday: Outlook Shortcut for Adding Contacts in the Same Company

by Reba Nance on July 17, 2012

When you’re in Microsoft Outlook 2007 and you’re adding contacts that work at the same company (or you’re adding an additional contact with the same company), you can save yourself the steps of re-entering the company’s name, address, phone number, fax number, and other company details each time you create a new contact.

Here’s how:

  • Open Contacts and select a contact that works for the same company as the new contact you’d like to create.
  • Click on the Contact tab (on the ribbon) and click on the down arrow to the right of Save & New
  • Select New Contact From Same Company from the drop-down menu.  When you do, Outlook opens a new contact form and automatically populates the company, address, business phone, and fax number fields with the information contained in the existing contact.
  • Enter or revise the information specific to the new contact you are adding.
  • Click Save & Close and you’re finished!

You can see this tip and others, on topics ranging from Outlook and Word help to App reviews and online tools, all here.
