were do we get help when things are documented - but presented in such a way that they are a working solution?
To further our question,
our current question now is how can we know the contact updated,modified date (if it was modified) so we can sync-two-way according to the most recent update.
thx for your help, please point us in the right direction - Tim:
Trying to wrap up our solution -
we can't get the "contact Modified Date" from our store - please advise, Tim:
I would love to see something on MVVM. Even though I've been using it in, I often feel like I don't really understand it, or what its best practices are.
What store will the user be able to create a new contact and are there flags for a default store?
if this solution works then possibly in the next release, there should already be a second store created for enterprise solutions.
Many thx for your guidance - Tim:
@twcarnahan, your application can create a custom contact store, (that can appear integrated with the user's experience in the people hub). Guidance is available here: msdn.microsoft.com/.../jj207034(v=vs.105).aspx
We're working to accomplish some things for our government customers - however, we find that we cannot import to the contacts in the windows phone 8. We can export all the contacts but can't figure a method to add new contacts programmatically. Please advise why this functionality is not present - or another method to add contacts.
