Setting up Alias Types

Last updated:

    Overview

    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

    1. From the main menu, select Maintenance > Client/Supplier > Alias Types.
      The Alias Type tab displays a description table.

    2. Enter a description for the alias type in the Description cell in the top row.

    3. To enter another alias type, press [Enter]. A blank row is created at the top of the table for you to enter.

    4. When you are finished, click OK to save the alias types and close the window.
