What is the purpose of Personal Cards Manager (PCM)? Why do you need PCM if every e-mail client has own address book?

1. The main purpose of PCM - keep ALL contacts (not e-mails only) in one place

  • Continue to use the address book of your e-mail client
  • Continue to use the address book of the mobile phone
  • use the Personal Cards Manager as your central database

2. The second argument to start using PCM: Usually you temporary keep e-mails, phones and names in plain text files or little pieces of paper. PCM is the perfect tool to sort your records.

PCM, Address book

Creating Address book

Follow the recommendations:

  • Create One main address book, create other books inside the main (use this sub-books as groups: Family, Friends, Business, etc.)
  • Keep all cards in address books only

You can create Address book using the template of Address book: drag&drop the template to desktop - voila! address book is there. Open it, it seems like standard folder with extra features. Collect WPPerson cards there.

Creating cards

Card is a file on your disk. If you open it via desktop (click it), you can see notebook: PIC: opened card.

When filling a card, pay attention to key fields:

  • Name
  • e-mail

To create good quality photo cut off the top of the head. Such photos seems more attractive.
