The contacts list is a place to store the contact information of business contacts you engage with for job management. This would include your Users (staff), Customers, Suppliers (these are built-in). We also give you the ability to create Contact Type tags to suit your business.  That way you can easily sort and filter your contacts as needed. See the Set up contact types article.
