Add a Location

In the Contact Directory Manager, locations can be assigned their own contact information. These locations can then be assigned to contacts in the Contact Manager, providing contact information to all related contacts.

Example

If a contact works in the admissions office, and much of their contact information is shared within the office, you can add an Admissions Office location and add the contact information to it. Once the location is added to the Location Manager, you can assign it to everyone who works in the admissions office. Adding contact information by creating a location doesn't prevent you from adding contact information directly to a contact.

To add a location to the Location Manager, do the following:

  1. On the right side of the toolbar, click The Dashboard Button.
  2. In the Dashboard, click Contact Directory Manager.

    The Contact Directory Manager page opens.

  3. On the Contact Directory Manager page, click Location Manager.
