  • A new Contact Type search field on the Contacts List Page.


New Activity to Create Custom Contact Types

There is new role activity called 'Edit Contact Types' that can be added to custom roles that, when granted to users, will allow them to create Custom Contact Types.


This new role activity has been automatically granted to your account's default Account Admin role.

Note: Before this release, any user with a Create, Edit or Admin Contact activity granted could create a custom contact type. They will no longer be able to and must be granted the 'Edit Contact Types' activity.
