Create New Project From Email

You can create a new project 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 Project.

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

Both options will display the newly-created Project window with pre-filled data from the email.
