The phone book easily keeps track of the contact information of all the connections in your network. And it's easy to use! Any time you accept an invitation to be directly connected to someone, or they accept and invitation of yours into your network, their contact information is automatically inputted into your phone book. And you didn't even have to do anything extra!
Whenever they update their contact info, you will automatically receive an update in your phone book (and keeps your contact info current in theirs). You will receive network updates if they get promoted, change employers, or share updates to their network. How about that!
Your phone book is displayed on the right hand side of the "My Home" page. To access the contact information of an associate, simply click on the name of the person you want the information for, and their information is displayed in a business card! When viewing their information, you also have the opportunity to edit their information, delete them from your phone book, download their information directly to your computer, or view their full profile by clicking the respective icons below the business card.
You can also add people directly into your phone book. To do this, access the "My Home" page and click on the "Add New Contacts" icon under "My Contacts". Enter the contact information, click "Add" and the contact is added directly into your contact manager. These people are not invited to your network unless you expressly invite them otherwise, but you have direct access to all the information you previously entered.
