Update contact

  • Dark
  • PDF

Updates an existing contact in the device contacts list.

The contact is referenced by its Record ID property, which might change e.g. during data migration to a new device.

Once the contact has been updated, the first output is triggered.

If there is an error, the second output is triggered.

On Android, there are a few outstanding bugs:

  • Custom labels get overwritten to "Other",
  • Postal addresses cannot be upated.
  • Phone numbers and emails are inserted instead of updated.

If the user hasn't given permission to access contacts, they will be requested automatically.
