Birthdays II: Linking contacts and birthdays

Enter shortcuts to a contact from an event

Connect a contact to an event.

As you've seen, inserting a shortcut or shortcuts into a contact lets you go quickly to your calendar. You may also want to go the other direction: to look from an event to see the details of a contact. For example, suppose a reminder alerts you that a colleague at work is going to have a birthday in three days. A link would let you go straight to the address in the contact.

You can easily connect an event to several contacts. If you are having a meeting with several people who you do not usually meet with, you can keep a list inside your calendar so that you can refresh your memory before the meeting.

You'll get to practice adding shortcuts in the practice, which is next.
