    When trying to set up individual ringtones on my Galaxy S8, I do not have a tab for ringtones in contacts. There is no option. I am also using Companion Link to sync with Outlook and there is no option there also. This all started a while ago as I used to be able to do it. what has changed?

    Did your phone upgrade to Android 8 Oreo lately? Google really focused on & changed Notifications and Permissions in Oreo. For some phones that made things like setting custom sounds, custom tones, etc much more difficult (or introduced bugs related to these functions).

    If you are using the Default Contact Manager you should see it listed after Phonetic Name. It is in the Expanded List of Contact Options. You need to Edit or do it during Creation of the Contact. There used to be an option hitting the 3 Dots of the Contact to change Ringtone but not anymore.
    I have verified being able to do so on my Note8 (8.0) and Note9 (8.1). Click on the Ringtone Field and you should be able to select the Ringtone you want on your Device.
