A Contact Card shows you contact details and buttons for quick communication.
You have seen how your Contact List improves the efficiency of communication. But it's a list. Suppose you want to remind yourself of contact details — how do you view those? Simple: You open a Contact Card, right from the Contact List. Just click the circle to the left of any contact name.
A Contact Card tells you about a person's availability and activity. It shows details such as the person's company, job title, and office number. If the contact has granted you permission, you can see schedule information as well as any personal note the contact has written.
For extra convenience, a Contact Card contains buttons to make a phone call, schedule a meeting, send e-mail, or send an instant message. How handy is that?
