How to select an account where a newly created contact syncs?

I am syncing contacts with two accounts (both MfE) - private and company. When I am creating a new contact from Jolla phone how can I select to which account I want to sync this particular account.

In addition, how do I know to which account(s) my contact is being synced to?

In case there are no way to select or know (as I think it is) these are feature requests.

Also, I would like to understand how this works now since a contact I created ended up to be synced with my company account. There must have been some logic how this works.

If You look for business purposes - buy a BlackBerry (eg. Z10, Z30 - PASSPORT....). Jolla is still under development and this stage can last for years

@albacoris As The First One I know this very well. This was a request for future, and certainly expect that Jolla can handle this as well. To be added to roadmap. I believe most smartphone users work somewhere and will want to separate their private and business contacts.

Reviving this request - it is important to be able to select on which addressbook i want my new contact to be created :) i don't want it to create it on 2 or 3 addressbooks at the same time!

Currently there are no such settings(they are planned), so new contacts will be synced to all accounts having two-way sync enabled. If this answer satisfies you please turn this into a feature request.

I changed this to feature request. For me it did not sync to both accounts that had two-way sync enabled, Only to one that happened to be my work account.

There has been created an identical request in the meantime: Maybe those two requests could be synced, too.
