How do I open someone else's Contacts?

Depending on how much access you have to the Contacts file, you can read or edit someone else's Contact entries.


  1. Open your Contacts.
  2. If you have created a shortcut for the person whose contacts you are managing, click the plus sign next to Other Contacts, and then click Open Contacts for name. If you have not created a shortcut, go to step 3.
  3. In the navigation pane, click the arrow to expand Other Contacts, and then click Open Other Contacts (Notes Basic client users: In the navigation pane, click Contacts to open the switcher, and then click Open Another Person's Contacts).
  4. In the Directory field at the top of the Open Contacts dialog box, select a directory that contains the name of the person whose Contacts you wish to see.
  5. In the Find names starting with field, enter the first few letters of the person's name as it is listed in the directory.
  6. Select the name from the list and then click OK.
