After you've created new contact, you don't find it in Prophet.
Changes to Outlook might have reset an ID that Prophet and Outlook uses.
Reset Prophet to use your "Contacts" folder. If Prophet is currently showing "Contacts" and you use a separate folder, steps to update Prophet are farther down in this article.
Select Contact Manger.
Click Prophet's Tools button to open Prophet Administrator.
In the "Set Working Contact Folder" page, click the Refresh button,
Check the box by the folder that you use with Prophet.
If you're prompted to Register the folder, click Yes.
If you are prompted to Synchronize the folder, you can click No. It would have been synchronized when you first installed Prophet.
If they ended up in a folder that wasn't synchronized with Prophet, e.g. they're in Contacts and should be in Prophet Contacts, you can drag them from Contacts to Prophet Contacts
If they are in the folder that's registered with Prophet, and thereare just few new contacts that, you can usually open them from Outlook, make a little change and once saved, they'll be synchronized in.
But sometimes you will need to Synchronize.
Using a separate "Prophet Contacts" folder or a public folder.
If you already use or prefer to use a separate "Prophet Contacts" folder, please see the file attached below, "Updating Prophet's Working Contact Folder with a Local Prophet Contacts Folder v2.docx"
If your company has a shared public folder, see the file attached below, "Updating Prophet's Working Contact Folder when using a public contacts folder.docx"
