The process used to add names to a contact list varies depending on the application, but it usually consists of clicking a button to add a new contact, entering the person's name, number and personal details into the appropriate fields, and saving the entry. Some applications offer users additional ways to add new contacts.
Online services such as SurveyMonkey typically offer their users options to import contacts from common email clients, such as Gmail and Outlook, as well as the ability to import CSV files. Instructions are usually available for each import option, or users may enter new contacts manually by typing each contact's details on individual lines in the input box.
To add a new contact in Outlook, select New Contact from the new group under the home tab, enter the contact's name and information, and click Save and Close. Choose the Save and New button to add additional contacts. In Gmail, open the contacts list by selecting Contacts from the Gmail menu in the upper-left corner, click New Contact, and enter any relevant information. The entries save automatically.
Mobile users may add new contacts directly from their recent call logs or by selecting Add New Contact from their contacts lists.. On an iPhone, touch the Information button beside any number on the call log, or select the Add to Contacts option directly from the dialing screen. On Android devices, select the desired number by long-pressing to add a new contact or to update an existing one. Select Done or the check-mark symbol to save the entry.
