vCards are a ubiquitous data format for contact information. The most common use cases involve receiving and sending vCards as email attachments.
1. Implement new function in our CiviCRM Shortcuts block - "New Contact from vCard"
1.1 Simple form w/ <input type=file...> to browse local drive for vCard file.
1.2 On submit:
- validate vCard format
- insert Contact from vCard
- redirect to contact/view for newly created contact
NOTE: Please let me know if there are 'ambigous' data mapping issues for the 'import'.
Reasonable UI implementation examples for both features can be seen on the SugarCRM demo at http://demo.sugarondemand.com/sugarcrm/index.php?action=Login&module=Users
(Navigate to the Contacts tab - 'Create contact from vCard' link in left-hand shortcut menu. Select a specific contact to see the [ vCard ] export button.)
