This ‘How To’ series is a series of blog articles that shows how you can use and get the most from ‘Publicity by Ribbonfish’.

These ‘How To’ blogs are structured as mini stories and they use characters, such as Dave, to demonstrate how certain tasks can be completed. All the characters used in these blogs are based on people that would be working in marketing, publicity and promotions and who are responsible for sending out publicity materials to selected contacts and collecting feedback and interest on those upcoming products.

How to Quickly Add Contacts to a List from the Contact Record

This is Dave.  

Dave works in the publicity department putting publicity lists together.   

Dave was recently creating a publicity but he has been informed by his manager that a new, and very relevant, contact has just been added to the system that should be on his list.  

Dave could easily go back to the list and search for the new contact and add them that way, however, because this is an ad-hoc addition and Dave knows the contacts details already, he decides to do it from the contact record instead of the list.  

Dave accesses the contact record of the new contact and presses the ‘Add To List’ button.  

Dave then simply fills in the details of the asset(s) the contact will receive and which list to add the contact to and presses ‘Next.  

That’s it! All done. The contact can be added to a list from the contact page in just a few clicks.
