Create a custom button with the same structure as the standard one, just add one parameter to the url:


To find the parameter name, right-click on the field you want to prepopulate on the contact detail page and click "Inspect Element" to find the id attribute in the html:

input id="con10" maxlength="40" name="con10" size="20" tabindex="6" type="text"
