Can I add an outlook form region to the right side of the contact form, so that the user can store custom information about each contact? We have many additional data fields that we maintain per contact and would like to be able to do this in outlook. When the user clicks on a specific contact, then the addin form we create will be populated with this additional data (which we would store in a database). Is this they type of thing that can be done with the adx extension for outlook? I am trying to get a feel for what this can do.

Hi Shane.

Yes, it can be done using the 'ADX Extension for Outlook' product.
You just need to open the Items collection of the ADXOlFormsManager component and set the InspectorItemTypes property to 'Contact' and the 'InspectorLayout' to the 'RightSubpane' value in the ADXOlFormsCollectionItem component.
