On Deskera Books, Contact details are editable even after creation. Changes can be made to your contact’s name, email address, payment term, and various other fields.
The Contextual menu displays what functions can be performed on the selected Product.
Accessing the Contextual Menu
To make any necessary changes to your Contact's details, go to the Contact Module on the sidebar menu. Next, click on the contextual menu (the three vertical dots) to access the actions available on the selected Contact.
1. Select 'Edit' in the Contextual menu and the Edit Product dialog box will appear. Under the Contact section, you can make changes to most fields except the auto-numbering format and currency.
2. Click on the ‘Next’ button to proceed to the Address section. Enter additional billing and shipping addresses or change the default address if necessary.
3. Any changes made to the Contact's name will be reflected in the document, for both new and existing documents. However, the changes in an address won’t be reflected in past documents, only new ones created after you have saved the changes to this Contact.
1. Select 'Copy' to create a duplicate contact.
2. This will toggle the Copy Contact page that is auto-filled with the same details as the contact selected. You can choose to amend any details if needed.
3. After you have verified all the fields, click ‘Save’ once you are done. The new contact will appear in your Contact List.
1. Select 'Deactivate' when an Active contact is selected to deactivate them.
2. If you deactivate a Contact, you won’t be able to select the Contact in any Contact dropdown fields in Deskera Books. However, you can always choose to reactivate the contacts if you need to use them by selecting 'Activate' in the Contextual menu when selecting an Inactive contact.
1. Select the Delete button if you wish to remove the contact from the system.
2. Do take note that you can only select the contacts you have not used in the Buy and Sell documents. Those documents that you have indicated the contact's name you won't be able to delete them from the system.
Customer vs Vendor Tabs
On the right-hand side of the contact summary list, you can segregate the contacts based on Customers or Vendors. If the contact has been used in the Sell Module, it will automatically be mapped to the Customer tab. On the other hand, if the contact has been used in the Buy Module, it will automatically be shown in the Vendor tab.
