Link Contacts in Outlook 13

In Outlook 13, a new feature allows us to link all contacts for a particular person, together. Once linked all the data is displayed on a contact card, with the source of the data listed. We are also able to click on any link on the contact card in order to open one of the information associated. In order to link Contacts in Outlook 13 all we have to do is to follow the steps below:

First we must select the People pane in order to view and search for the Contact that we want to link. In the image below, we see three different Contact information that concern the both person. Once we are ready to link the information for the specific person, we select the command Link Contacts which is located at right of the person’s information as shown in the image below.
