Less Annoying CRM's calendar is the best way to stay on top of your upcoming events and follow-up reminders. If you share an account with your team, it's an easy way to see everyone's schedules, and if you're on an account on your own, there are a number of ways to set up your own personal and work calendars.
Contacts and companies are the bread and butter of any contact management system, and that includes Less Annoying CRM. Any person, vendor, prospect, networking partner etc. starts off as either a contact or a company in LACRM. You can then take notes, set follow-up reminders, and store whatever information you want on these contact and company profiles.
This section contains articles that will help you get started on adding new contacts and companies into your CRM account, so that you can start managing your relationships!
Less Annoying CRM comes with basic default fields that let you enter in the core details about every contact and company that you add to your CRM account. Oftentimes, you need to track additional information, or need industry-specific fields to fill out for your records. That's where custom fields come in.
Custom fields are found on both your contact and company records, as well as your pipelines. These articles will guide you through how to create custom fields on your account (if you're an administrator, or the only user on the account!) to store and track any piece of information that you need!
Less Annoying CRM is you and your team's centralized hub for all the information related to the contacts and companies that you build relationships with. Part of being your main hub includes being your main file storage space for your records.
