I've started getting a number of contacts via VCard and have been trying to figure out how to get these directly into ACT!. I've now gotten my file association set so that .vcf uses ACT!
When I go to add a VCard to ACT!, I'm getting the name, company, and title, but none of the other fields in the VCard are importing. How can I set the mapping to make sure all of the fields are imported? Thanks.

Hey Maddog and Actmonts, can you be specific with the fields that are not populating/mapping? And which version/build of Act! are you on? While there are no options for modifying the mapping of fields, there may be other factors causing them to not populater correctly.
To see if the behavior is specific to your database, open the Demo or create a new database and test importing a Vcard.
As a test of the VCF file, you can right click on it and select Run As > choose Outlook and see if it properly populates the fields (it won't save the contact to Outlook unless you tell it do so).

I was specific in my original post, and the Subject was re: ACT! 2010,
"I'm getting the name, company, and title, but none of the other fields"
I just tried this with the Sample database and get the same result. It populates the fields correctly in Outlook, so this is definitely an ACT! issue. Any clue as to how to fix this?

Do yourself a big favor and go to the website suggested above by rburst. He has an add on for $5.95 that takes 60 seconds to install and then start using it. works like a charm.
