I see the post below is old, and was wondering if anyone has an answer to the question below:

Is it possible to get custom fields to show up in

the GENERAL fields section on an Outlook 2007 contact card?

I'm confused as to if it's possible to get custom fields to show up in

the GENERAL fields section on an Outlook 2007 contact card, and would

appreciate any advice that the fine people here might be able to

provide.

First off, I go to the Contacts section of Outlook 2007 and select

View>>Current View>> Phone List

In this view, I can right-click on the field categories at the top and

choose Field Chooser. The field Chooser dialogue box then appears,

and I proceed to Custom Fields, define my fields, and drag and drop

the category into the list.

At this point I can go to a Contact Card, and in the SHOW section of

the ribbon I can click on All Fields, then choose User-Defined Fields

in Folder to view the fields I have added and fill them in.

The fact is however, i want information define and deem to be

important to show up on the default card view for my contacts (the

part that has name, job title, email, etc.).

Is this possible? Am I barking up the right tree? Once again, any

help you can provide is greatly appreciated!!!

Yes, but you lose the new contact format - it reverts to the 2000/2002

style.
