Create New Deal From Email

You can create a new deal from any email you have in your Microsoft Outlook. You can easily save incoming demands in eWay-CRM.

Right-clicking an email in your Microsoft Outlook will open a context menu with the option Convert to Deal.

The same result can be achieved, if you view the Email window and then click the Convert to Deal button in the top right part of the Email window.

Both options will display a dialog box about the process of saving an email to eWay-CRM. Then the newly-created Deal window will open with pre-filled data from the email.
