Contact Manager: New & Edit


The Contact Manager New and Edit screens provide the functions necessary to create, and then manage, Contacts within the web site under development. Only one screenshot is provided as there are very few differences between the two screens. The Screen Title, the switch between the Cancel and Close icons in the Toolbar and the ability to change the order of the Contact.



Save: Click the Save icon to save any changes made during the current editing session, and return to the Contact Manager screen.

Cancel: Clicking Cancel at any point ends the current Contact creation session and returns the display to the Contact Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced will be lost and the new Contact will not have been created.

Help: Click the Help icon at any time to view this Help Screen.

Close: Click the Close icon at any point to end the current editing session and return to the Contact Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced will be lost.
