share contact card vcf

Hi there --

Is there a way to share a contact's or organization's info with someone from the mobile app? This happens several times a week, for example getting an email: "Can you send me the contact info for my insurance company, my mom might want to switch to them." The only way I could figure out to answer that email was switching back and forth between Insightly and Gmail on my phone, copying and pasting name, title, company, phone number, email address one at a time.

I'm thinking there must be a way to just share a vcf card for a contact??

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

  • Sharing an Insightly contact in vcf card format isn't available through the mobile app Ilyse. Thanks for adding your idea here for other users to vote and comment on.

  • Thanks for your response, Lyla. Our Insightly account (still in long-term trial mode here) would mostly seldom-contacted people and organizations who we do NOT wish to sync to Google because we do NOT want them added to our phone contacts. And we use freelance/part-time assistants who will not have access to our Insightly account, yet often might need to send them a contact card so they can complete a task. The inability to export a vcf (which should bring up the Share menu on your phone, so you can choose to share via SMS, email, save to a folder on your phone, etc) is turning into a show-stopper for us. It's one of the only reasons we are still evaluating other apps.

  • Hi Ilyse,

    I can see that this is an important issue for you.  Thank you for sharing your thoughts and ideas with us!

    If this is something you'd like to see added to Insightly in a future update, we have an Ideas & Suggestions section you can post to. That section of the Community is monitored by our Product and Engineering teams, and other users can vote for your idea and share their thoughts on it as well. :)

  • I need to share contacts on a regular basis and exporting a contacts vcf and than importing it into a google-email seems realy not the right solution to me, esp. when the german translation indicats that you are emailing the VCF as attachement to someone else.. but that is not what is happening.

    Has this feature (send this contact's vcf as attachement by mail to someone - by mail (or messanger when using a mobile phone)).
