The Contacts table displays the columns where you can enter customer addresses.
Contact addresses will be immediately available in the invoice dialogue when creating or editing the invoice, simplifying data entry.
Changing the data in the Contacts table does not change the data of existing invoices and offers. If you want an existing invoice or offer to be updated with the new customer data, you must:
- Change the invoice or the estimate in the invoice dialogue.
- You must select the customer again from the list in the customer address section.
The Contacts table contains many columns, those displayed in the image are those in the Basic view. The complete list is visible in the Complete view. To customise the columns see the Columns Setup page.
