What's in a Contact?

Contact Updates

In the top right corner of Contact, there are links that help you quickly update the Contact entity you are viewing. Customization of these links, and permissioning of access to these links, can be updated by the System Administrator. Our defaults include:

  • +Follow
  • Change Owner
  • Edit
  • Delete
  • Clone

Highlights Panel

A fully customizable part of the Contact entity, the Highlights Panel includes top information about the Contact that your System Administrator has indicated to be vital to your Contacts. By default, our Highlights Panel includes Relationship Name, Contact Type, Phone Number, Primary Email, Contact Owner.

Related List Quick Links are just that, quick links to access information that is related to the Contact entity. You can either hover over the links to see the first related records (up to 10), or you can click on the links to see the full list. System Administrators can customize these links for your firm, and with the proper permission, you can choose to also customize your personal Related List Quick Links. To customize quick links, go to your Settings > enter Customize My Pages in the Quick Find box > select Customize My Pages > select Contacts.

Salentica has chosen the following quick links: Employment History, Financial Accounts (primary owner), Financial Accounts (secondary owner) Related Relationships, Notes, Notes & Attachments, Requests, and Referrals.

Below your Contact Name, Highlights Panel, and Related Quick Links, the bulk of the information about the Contact is included.The data points that are listed below are defaults based on Element's initial template.
