If a contact or client has an alias it should be recorded to maintain a complete record of the contact or client in the database. The alias is defined by type and is made available for selection when a user enters an alias for a contact or client on the Contact or Client Page: Main Tab. The system administrator defines the different alias types for selection.
Set up an Alias Type
From the main menu, select Maintenance > Client/Supplier > Alias Types.
In the table, in the Description cell in the top row, enter a description for the Alias Type.
To enter another Alias Type, press [Enter] and then enter information in the new blank row at the top of the table.
When you have finished, click to save the Alias Types and close the window.
