    I spent over two hours today because I was under the assumption I could take picture of buisness card import it to one note then sync to outlook contacts. Boy was I wrong!!!

    Copy a business card format to use on other contacts business cards.
    Rather than having to create each card individually, a way to copy the format and paste to another would be very helpful and time saving.
    As well as a way to scan in actual business cards.
