Use the Contact dialog to add to the list of available contacts while setting up firm, office, staff, or client contact information. This contact will be available to add to the firm, offices, staff, or clients or may be entered into the application without any associations as a standalone contact. You can also edit contacts in this dialog.

Note: Clients, office, staff, and firm are user-defined terminology items. Your firm may refer to them by different names. You can view the default names for user-defined items by choosing Help > Enable Default Terminology (or by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+H).

  1. From the Setup menu, choose Firm, Offices, Staff, or Clients, depending on the type of contact you are setting up.
  2. Click the Edit button.

  3. If necessary, select a client, office, or staff member from the list.
  4. Click the Contact Info tab.
  5. Click the More More button button next to the Additional contacts field.
