Clients are essentially contacts in your address book (Clients Overview page).
The Clients Overview page displays all the active and inactive clients in the system. You can search clients, add new clients, batch import clients, edit clients and delete clients.
IMPORTANT: if you would like to send your client a quote, invoice, contract or questionnaire please add a new job for this client first. All quotes, invoices, contracts and questionnaires are managed from within the job profile page.
