Outlook CRM Background

You can use categories to divide items (contacts, deals, projects, etc.) into groups (e.g. industries, territories).

The easiest way to create a category is to click on Add New on an item card (Deal, Contact, Project) and select Category.

If you want to avoid duplicates in the future or you don’t want other users created their own categories, you may create categories in Administration Settings in advance.

  1. Click Administration Settings on the eWay-CRM ribbon.
