Email Contact Creates Event
On the main contact record for a person or a company there is an ‘Emails’ tab. By each email address there is a ‘Send email’ button. This opens an email in your default email application and pre-populates the ‘To’ address with the contact’s email address.
After writing and sending your email and returning to SalesMaster the system will prompt you to create a Timeline Event. SalesMaster pre-populates as much for you as possible.
