Quick way to enter contact addresses

Submitted by: Cynthia from Kirkland
Microsoft Dynamics CRM version: 3.0

If you have many contacts at the same company and don't want to have to type in each address separately, you can auto create the addresses if you first create an Account Record. Once you create an account record and enter the address data, then under Details, select Contacts. Click New Contact. You'll notice that the Parent Customer information is automatically linked. In addition, if the Account record contained data for the Business Phone field, Address area information are already filled in.

    Cool Renee.  So will I be able to subscribe to the tips as an rss feed?  That would be great.

    Also, I probably have a few tips, are these any good to you?

    Andrew, if you click on the Tips & Tricks tag over on the left column, then from that page you can subscribe to an RSS feed for just that category.

    Glad you like it, Andrew. We are new to doing these, so can you submit one of your tips on the CRM tips page and I’ll take a look?

    If you sign up for the RSS (Thanks for the info, Tim!), let me know how that works out.
