How to create a new Contact in Joomla 3.1
It is easy to create a new contact within the Contacts Component in Joomla 3.0. Here are the steps:
Creating a new Contact
- Log into your Joomla 3.0 admin dashboard
- In the top menu, click Components, hover over Contacts, and then click Contacts
- In the top left of the page, click the New button
- There are many details you can fill out on this New Contact page. Fill out the necessary fields, and then click Save in the top left menu. In the table below you can see the data we used for our new contact:
Name Enter the name for your new contact
As we are creating teacher and student contacts in our testing, we entered Teacher A as the Name.
Linked User If this new contact is a registered user in your Joomla 3.0 website, click Select User and choose the appropriate Joomla username.
We linked Teacher A to the admin username.
Category Choose which Contacts Category this user belongs to.
Because we already created a new Contacts Category of Teachers, we selected Teachers as the category.
Miscellaneous Information For Teacher A's Miscellaneous Information, we entered the following:
This is the Miscellaneous Information for Teacher A.

I am unsure of any existing extension that does what you are looking for. You may need to hire a developer to custom code the extension for you.
