Need More Data?

Are you an MS Outlook user who often finds yourself wishing for more Contact fields? That is, maybe you’re looking to enter data that has no “pre-made” location?

Frustrating, isn’t it?

What do you do?

I mean, you want the data recorded for future use, but where?

Let’s face it. If you “slide” it into another field just to have a record of the information, you could easily forget where you put it. (Sort of like my car keys. I’m always putting them some place where “I won’t lose them.” Yeah, right!)

So, here’s a way to put a “key hook on the wall” and make a place for all your Contact data, so you don’t accidentally misplace it.

To begin, you need to open a Contact.

Next, in older versions of Outlook, you’re looking for the All Fields tab.

In Outlook 2007 you need the All Fields button located on the Contacts tab of the Ribbon.

The resulting list of All Fields list will look like this:

In the bottom left corner, you’ll find the New button. Click it.

The New Field window will open and this is where you can enter a name and choose a data type for the field.

Once everything is set, click OK.

When you’re returned to the Contact window, you’ll notice the new field is now listed in the All Fields tab.

You can enter your data to the right of the field name.

If you need to remove a field from the list, select it and click the Delete button at the bottom.

Data where you won’t lose it. Who would have thought?!

Now, if only I could get that kind of organization with all the other stuff I keep misplacing!
