Edit a Contact

Modify the details of an existing Contact in ConstructionOnline


ConstructionOnline's award-winning construction CRM software is designed to help successful construction companies organize contacts of all types—streamlining project management and creating open channels of communication. ConstructionOnline provides six different contact designations, each designed for a unique purpose and function within the platform: Company Contacts, ClientLink Contacts, TeamLink Contacts, Leads, Basic Contacts, and Inactive Contacts. Each Contact can be easily edited if any updates need to be made to their information.

You will not be able to edit a Contact's Public Details! You can update their Private Details, but only the Contact themselves can edit their Public Details.
