I am using Windows 8.1 and Outlook 2013. I want to add the Map It button found on the standard contact form next to the address field to my custom contact form. Is that possible? Where do I find the button in the Design This Form? How do I add it?

Diane, thank you for your rapid response and suggestions. I would love to use the first idea but I don't see the Map It icon under the Action command inside the Custom Contact form I have created. There are the following options under that command: Save & Close, Delete, Save & New, Contact from the Same Company, Forward as a Business Card, Forward in Internet Format, and Forward as and Outlook Contact. I've searched for the command under Customize Ribbon and can't find it even looking under All Commands. Could it be missing for some reason or Added to a different location already on the ToolBar that I am not seeing?

Its not in customize ribbon, at least not as a separate button (that i could find). The More button is available - but it should be on the Home ribbon by default. It also available if you edit the first page (I double checked).

Aw...we are getting closer! I see it now under More in the Communications Section of the Ribbon. Thanks. When I click Map It though I get this reply: "There is no address to map.". I then realized it was referring to the empty Business Address field not the Home Address field. I copied the home address into the empty business address field, saved it and then tried the Map It button and it worked great. Is there any way to direct as to which address you want looked up on the map?

It should use the address in the view - or the mailing address.

Great. It seems to be working just as you say. Thanks, Diane!
