Back up your contacts to the Cloud(s)

As part of some new changes on the SMEStorage web platform (more of those in the next post) we have introduced contacts as data that you can back up to the cloud platforms we support.


In the SMEStorage explorer bar you will now see a Contact root Node:


contactexplorer


When you click on this node you will see two new icons in your SMEStorage explorer Bar:


contactbar


The first icon gives you the ability to backup contacts from over 50 email and social sites that provide contacts:


contact-providers


Once your contacts are imported (and you can back them up to any cloud that we support (which includes Amazon S3, Mosso Cloud Files, Box.net, Gmail-as-a-Cloud, Email-as-a-Cloud, FTP-as-a-Cloud, MobileMe, and any WebDav enabled cloud) they are stored as VCard files, and as they are treated as files you can mark them as favourites, share them over email, or Twitter etc.


You can also edit each contact and add extra information or more fields:


editcontact


Once your contacts are imported you can create contact groups and sub groups and organise your contacts. All your contacts and contact groups are integrated into the site so if you want to share files over email or from business groups when you start typing the first letters your contacts will popup for your to insert.
