How to just ppen the contact card via hyperlink from Excel? Having a list of people in my organization and instead typing their contact information into Excel, I want to link to Lync or Outlook contact cards located in the domain. Spins around the Internet and can not understand that Microsoft has not fixed an easy way to link to contacts cards. Badly done Microsoft!
