Today when you click Add Contact, it brings up a dialog box which contains a few fields filled in, you then click ok, and behind the scenes a new contact document is added to names.nsf.   I'd like to see this changed to: click Add Contact, a new contact record is created and brought to the front in edit mode with values filled in (name, email, etc), so that I can either now enter additional information, or click just click save.

Yes, yes, yes Alan!

It's positively stone-age the way Notes make you add a contact from an e-mail. You add the contact - then have to go into your address book, find the contact you just added and enter the rest of the information. I've had new employees point to this as the primary reason they don't like Notes.

This is one issue that an influential person here brings up to me constantly. While they're at it can they add a button to "send a contact" either through a contact document or a script to compile and attach a vcard? There is some code in the Lotus Sandbox that I have used but I am sure IBM can do a better job at it.

Haha, I second Scott - YES YES YES!!!!
