Contacts: Best practices for users
The data fields in Contacts are flexible and can be used - and misused - in many ways. Encourage users to learn how to use the Contacts Manager by leveraging the resources above. We also recommend you ask users to:
- Periodically find and merge duplicate entries to free up space for more contacts
- Keep every contact in an individual record and leverage personal contact groups if often messaging the same set of people. Users can import contacts using a CSV when adding many records.
