Adding Contracts & Third Party Vendors to your Sales

Include all of your third party contacts who are involved in your client’s work, such as a lawyer or a consultant for a client, on their Accelo updates.

Using this guide, you can:

What are Contributors?

If you have any contacts or third party companies that have some stake or involvement with a job or a company, you can easily keep them in the loop by including them as Contributors. Many of our clients require a professional be kept updated, such as the use of a consultant, industry professional, or an attorney.

Contributors are any third party company or contact you want to be kept up to speed with the work for a certain project or issue on your account. For example, if you are working on a Project for Client A, and they indicate that they will be using a consultant from Client B to perform external auditing of your work, then you would potentially be liaising with this consultant at Client B on Client A’s Project. By creating a Contributor for Client B, you can show that a contact from Client A is contributing to a job for Client B.

To add this Contributor to emails and updates, you can either link that third party up-front as a Contributor, or by using Contributor Quick Add.
