How to Create a Contact Group in Outlook 2013

Creating a Contact group in Outlook 2013 is a simple matter of making up a name for your list and choosing from the collection of names you’ve stored on your system. A Contact group doesn’t keep track of phone numbers and mailing addresses, just e-mail addresses.

To create a Contact group in your Contacts module, follow these steps:

1

Click the New Contact Group button in the Home tab’s Ribbon (or press Ctrl+Shift+L).

The Contact Group dialog box appears.

2

Type the name you want to assign to your Contact group.

The name you type appears in the Name text box.

3

Click the Add Members button and choose From Outlook Contacts.

The Select Members: Contacts dialog box shows the available names on the left side and a blank Members box at the bottom.

4

To include the e-mail addresses of people who aren’t in your Contacts list or any of your other Outlook Address Books, Choose New Email Contact.

Enter the name and e-mail address of the person you want to add in the Add Members dialog box. Click OK.

5

Double-click the name of each person you want to add to your Contact group.

Each name you double-click appears in the Members box at the bottom of the dialog box.

6

When you’re done picking names, click the OK button.

The Select Members: Contacts dialog box closes.

7

Click the Save & Close button (or press Alt+S).

The Contact Group dialog box closes and your Contact group appears in boldface in your list of contacts.
