Affinity also allows you the option to manually create any Person or Organization contact. You can do this, one of two ways:
Create new contact from Dashboard
- Click on + Create new
- Choose Person or Organization from the dropdown list
- You will then get a popup window to define a list of attributes about that Person or Organization.
- For any new Person you will be required to enter a First and Last name for the individual. Email address is highly recommended because that allows affinity to auto- populate that contact’s page with data like email and meeting interactions and associated organizations.
- For any new Organization you will be required to enter a name for the organization. The company URL is highly recommend because it also allows affinity to auto- populate the platform with data associated with the organization.
- The click Create
