On Contacts+ Mobile apps, you can add a contact to your favorites by selecting the contact-- on the top right you will see the menu (3 Dots)-- Select 'Add to favorites'.

How can I set a primary phone number, email address, and/or location for a contact?

In  Contacts+ for Web, click Edit in the upper right-hand corner, then drag/drop contact information to make it primary (to note: you can only drag/drop when there is more than one phone number, job title, email address, etc.).

How can I adjust labels for my contacts?

If you need to adjust the labels for your contacts, we suggest using Contacts+ for Web or Contacts+ for Mac.

In  Contacts+ for Web, click on Edit in the upper right-hand corner, then click the drop-down arrow next to any label to adjust it.

In  Contacts+ for Mac, navigate to Contacts+ (menu dashboard) on the top left corner >> Preferences >> Template, drag and drop on the hamburger icon displayed to adjust the labels.

In  Contacts+ for iOS, click Contact icon >> Settings >>  Contact items >> Reorder >> drag and drop the labels to reorder. Once you have finished, tap on "Done".

Unfortunately, in  Contacts+ for Android, currently, we do not support label customization.

In  Contacts+ for Gmail, click on the label and a drop-down list with available options will appear.

Keep in mind that in Contacts+ for iOS and Contacts+ for Mac, you can't change the label for a specific contact; however, per the screenshots above, you can change the general labels.

Can I add custom fields?

Yes, when adjusting the label, choose custom/other to make your own label.

How can I perform quick actions (call, text, etc.) for contacts in Contacts+ for iOS/Contacts+ for Android?

In Contacts+ for iOS, long swiping to the right on a contact (from left to right) will give you immediate actions, which include calling, calling via Facetime, video via FaceTime, sending a message, sending an email, etc.

In  Contacts+ for Android, double-tapping on a contact allows you to make calls.
