Last but most certainly not least, this post is cholk-full of ways to give Market Snapshot a boost.
Q. What is the best way to clean up my database?
A: Excellent question—the duplicate contact check in Top Producer CRM is a great place to start!
To access it, just go to Contacts > Show duplicates > select the duplicate contacts > click Merge Selected. (Don’t worry, we show you a preview first before we do anything, but additional instructions can be found here if you need ’em.)
Another quick tip—if you sync your data with Outlook or Gmail or import records from time to time, it’s possible that some pesky empty contact records have made their way into your database. To check, just go to Contacts > Contacts Summary > look for any data-less records at the top of the list.
Of course you want to make sure these records are useless before you delete them, so select them > click Mass Open > take a boo at the record > then click Delete Contact in the bottom right as you cycle through them.
That’s it for now, but before we part, this is a new year and we too have goals we want to achieve.
