Create Contacts Manually

Applies to
eWay-CRM Desktop, eWay-CRM Online and eWay-CRM Mobile (iOS and Android).
Tip on importing contacts
The best way to add your contacts is to import them. You can use Import from Microsoft 365, Import from Outlook, or Import from Excel.
You can also convert an email to a contact. It’s great if you receive an email from somebody who is not in your CRM yet.
If you still need to add contacts manually, this article is a great start.

eWay-CRM Desktop

  1. Click New on the eWay-CRM ribbon and select Contact.

  3. Type in the name and surname of the contact.

  5. You can select a company if it’s already saved in eWay-CRM by clicking the Select Company sign (in this case company’s address can be copied onto the contact card automatically). If the company doesn’t exist yet, you can create it by clicking the Create Company sign.
  6. Note
    If you save multiple contacts by one company, your contacts will be nicely organized and all emails will be automatically linked with the company too. If you open the company, you will find there all related contacts including the history of their communications.
    You also add a company just as a text. The company won’t be created in our module Companies but will be listed as plaintext by the contact.

    Select Company


  7. Specify other details such email address, phone number, job title, etc. You can also upload a picture of the contact by clicking the profile icon. (We recommend that you upload quadrate images of the same size for all contacts).
  8. Note
    If the user has a Gravatar account and there is a picture related to his or her email address, eWay-CRM downloads this profile picture. eWay-CRM will download also the profile picture of the contact while importing contacts from Microsoft 365 or importing contacts from Outlook.
