Other party

Create, organize, and manage companies with the Other Parties system.
The Other Party system works similar to Contacts in regard to how you interact with the records.
Additionally, it's possible to link contacts to an other party to further organize your data.

Add a New Other Party

The system for adding a new other party is designed to help you avoid adding duplicate other parties.

Before adding an other party, it is required that you first start typing the name into the Name input in the control panel.
When you initially start typing, you may notice that names appear in a drop-down menu below the input, this will happen as the system searches for all potential matches.

Once the name is specific enough, you should notice that no more names appear in the drop-down menu.

Additionally, you should notice text appear on the right end of the Name input that says "Not found.Add New Other Party." Clicking on the red 'Add New Other Party' text will take you to the 'New Other Party' entry screen.

Edit an Other Party

Once you search or insert an other party, you will be taken to the screen for that individual other party.

Here, you are able to edit the record's information among other things. On the other party info card, click on the edit button:
