Introducing your address book! - Tutorials Ordissimo (Ordissimo v4)
Are you hoping to manage your contacts with the "Addresses" application? Together we'll see how to create or delete a contact. We will also go over how to import or export contact info as a calling card (Vcard).
On your Ordissimo home screen,
|Click on "Addresses" on the applications bar||or "Consult my address book" at the top right of the screen|
The "Addresses" application is made up of three elements:
a. Contacts list.
You can scroll through the list with the help of the up and down arrows.
You can also use the alphabetical directory to the left of your contacts to skip directly to the first letter of the last name of your desired contact.
This function is particularly useful if you have many contacts.

6. Primary address
7. Primary zip code
