Re: FW: [AQ_NFS] Changing card holder - Attn Gaylon
The ability to edit and delete contacts in the ORTS system is also high
on the list of things to do.
You initially asked, "I tried to Add New Contact. It requires that I put
in his PID."
The Add new contact brings up a screen where you type in information on
a contact person, and the first item (and the only item important to AQ)
is an ID. I typically put in something like, "Aunt Bessie", "Cousin
Bob", "Young Mens President" or "High Priest Group Leader". This is not
intended to be the PID of the person in NFS, but something that makes
sense to you. The other fields, such as address, e-mail, phone and so on
are for you to use any way you like. And as you mention, without the
ability to review this screen later, adding the other information at
this time is not very helpful. (In our initial design, the contact
screen was available in a different part of the program, and we had the
edit working, but as we rearranged some things shortly before releasing
ORTS, we missed this -- we intend to get it back in soon.)
