The system for adding a new contact is designed to help you avoid adding duplicate contacts.
Before adding a contact, it is required that you first start typing the name into the Name input in the control panel. When you initially start typing, you may notice that names appear in a drop-down menu below the input, this will happen as the system searches for all potential matches.
Once the name is specific enough, you should notice that no more names appear in the drop-down menu.
Additionally, you should notice text appear on the right end of the Name input that says "Not found.Add New Contact."; clicking on the red 'Add New Contact' text will take you to the 'New Contact' entry screen.
