Contacts

The Contacts module is primarily intended for the administration of persons you collaborate with (customers, suppliers, clients, etc.). The Contacts module represents an electronic replacement of your address book. You can easily manage your contacts in eWay-CRM and relate them with projects, companies, events etc. You can see all relations in the Contact window in particular tabs. You can find phone numbers, email addresses and other entries about a contact in its Contact window. All data has to be previously added by you or other authorized users.

This article is focusing on the basics of the Contacts module in eWay-CRM Web. If you want more general information about this module, please go to the description of the module for eWay-CRM Outlook.

Contacts List

Clicking the modules name in the top part of Way-CRM Web page, you get into the contacts list.

When you click the link, you will see the list of all items that your user has permissions to.

You can search items in the list, filter them, customize the list, etc. For more information about list opinions, go to List of Items Introduction.

Item Preview

When you click an item, its preview panel shows on the right side of the web page where you can see the values of the items and also some relations. For more information about the preview, go to Item Preview.

Contact Dialog

Find out basic information about items creating and editing here: Create and Edit Items.

If you want to open an item, just double-click it. You will see similar detail:

Field Description
Basic Information Name of the contact, his or her company, role in the company and email contacts.
Address The business, home and other address.
Note The general text you can add to your contact.

When you want to display other fields, customize your dialog, use Form Designer in eWay-CRM Outlook. eWay-CRM Web will display a dialog similar as in Microsoft Outlook, but some differences can happen due to the position of field groups in eWay-CRM Outlook - eWay-CRM Web does not use only the horizontal position of the field group, but the vertical is also important, e.g. when the group is on the right in eWay-CRM Outlook but it is higher than the group on the left, it is displayed higher in eWay-CRM Web.
