When the call Preview Window displays a call that is not yet found in any integrated address book (or is found in some but not all integrated address books) the Add Contact icon is displayed. This offers a quick method to insert the contact details into multiple locations.

Entry not found in any address book:

Entry found in all address books except Salesforce:

Select which integrated address book "Type" to add the contact into and either "Save" or "Save and Edit" to also open the contact within the selected address book. The stored details are then used to add to the next selected address book "Type" to quickly duplicate the contact record into multiple locations.

Multiple Calls

When multiple parties or calls are in progress, the Preview Window will "stack" each call with the currently active call initially at the front:
