Edit Contact Field

hi I’m new of java script I’d like to edit a field of a selected contact and add a note… if is not a big matter for you could you help me?
Thanks

The below script would do it but unfortunately, Scriptable does not have permission to access the note field on iOS 13. The notes of a custom have become a field that Apple needs to approve in order for apps to use it. I will send a request to use it but I think the chances are slim that Scriptable will be allowed to use it.

let containers = await ContactsContainer.all()
let contacts = await Contact.all(containers)
contacts.sort((a, b) => {
  return displayName(b) < displayName(a)
})
let table = new UITable()
for (contact of contacts) {
  let name = displayName(contact)
  let row = new UITableRow()
  row.dismissOnSelect = true
  row.onSelect = (idx) => {
    let c = contacts[idx]
    edit(c)
  }
  row.addText(name)
  table.addRow(row)
}
table.present()

async function edit(contact) {
  let alert = new Alert()
  alert.title = "Enter Note"
  alert.addTextField("Note", contact.note)
  alert.addAction("Save")
  alert.addCancelAction("Cancel")
  let idx = await alert.presentAlert()
  if (idx != -1) {
    let note = alert.textFieldValue(0)
    log(contact.givenName)
    log(note)
    contact.note = note
    Contact.update(contact)
    Contact.persistChanges()
  }
}

function displayName(contact) {
  return contact.givenName
    + " "
    + contact.familyName
}

Any idea why that is?

This script works now, BTW. :smile:
I’ve been waiting for something like this.
