+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1771569 +++

We need to check if we're really migrating all fields of a TB 91 contact into TB 102. I bet we've overlooked some, like Custom 1-4 fields, Notes etc.

Urgent as it needs strings.

Can we have someone from AB-devs listing all contact fields here which are correctly migrated?

We're 2 weeks away from the final 102 and we're working on restoring the custom fields.
Please, don't needinfo me unless it's a bug or a technical issue. Continue using the mailing list for these kind of discussions.

Migration of Department field has weird behaviour per Bug 1777780 resulting in multi-line Organization field, which is then split up in unpredictable reverse ways to fill ghost Department column and Organization column in horizontal view - we really need to restore a dedicated Department field as in TB 91.

Plan for 102

Add back those custom fields that had any data in it, as static and always present so users that had data can still see it and edit it.

After 102

Convert those custom fields to actual repeated custom fields and implement those properly based on the vcard spaces.

Regarding all other vCard4 fields we're currently missing, we will implement those after 102.
No need to over engineer or complicate things.
The work on the address book isn't complete and this is a weird transition period.
