The most common task a user will be performing is adding a new contact. This is easily done directly from the dashboard.
Contacts can be added by clicking the Add New Contact tab in the sidebar menu. This opens up a window in which the User can input all of the relevant information that they have collected about the Contact. Each contact requires basic contact information, and the custom fields in this window are determined by the system Administrator when they are setting up their organization's database.
Contacts can be added to a particular event or tag, and assigned to a User directly from this window. Alternatively, they can be added to an event directly from the event page, or assigned to a user from their personal profile page.
