Highlight the contact information in the results and use Copy2Contact to create a new contact record!

Outlook users: Capture to a specific folder

olfoldersIf you use different Outlook folders to store information for different projects, you might want to configure Copy2Contact to use those folders instead of the defaults. This feature is available only in Copy2Contact PRO, but can be tried out during the 14-day trial period.

Open Copy2Contact’s Target Apps settings by clicking the Copy2Contact icon in your system tray (next to your clock) and choosing Utils, then Target Apps. Then on the Outlook page of the dialog, press the Default Folders button.

This is particularly useful with Business Contact Manager for Outlook, which stores contacts in its own folder.

Click here to open Copy2Contact’s Outlook Target Apps settings now (Copy2Contact must be installed on your computer).
