Create a contact from registrant

My client would like to create an Apple contact from registrant’s information. Is there a way to add a button to the registration information that will create a contact in my client’s Apple contacts/or Gmail Contacts?

Hi Fran,

We don’t have any examples of doing this but it should be possible.

The tricky part is not getting the button itself, although adding a button in the location you have highlighted would need a little custom code to load a custom template. You’ll need a custom function to generate a VCARD and include that in whichever section you add the button to, see:

That’s the part that gets tricky as not all devices treat them the same from a web page.

So in short, yes it’s possible, but you’ll need some custom development to build out this solution for you. If you are not currently working with a developer we recommend contacting codeable who may be able to build this for you.
