Working With Contacts

JobNimbus helps you keep your work organized through contact files.

As we go through these next few courses keep in mind that you will be working in your account, so make sure to pull it up so you can follow along.

Let’s start out by talking about contacts

File CabinetJobNimbus keeps track of a lot of information, and all of that information is housed in your contact files. You can think of a contact’s file like something you would pull out of a filing cabinet. There are different types of contacts that you may encounter in your account. JobNimbus can keep track of your suppliers, subcontractors, leads, and team members. All of these are contacts in your system.

We are going to be working with a lead. You may already have some leads to work with, but let’s create a test contact for this training. Follow along and create your own as we build out our test contact, Gary Grant.
