Tip: Make a shortcut to the CRM
An important part of getting started with the CRM is making CRM use a habit. The more you make LACRM a part of your daily routine, the more accurate your data entry will be, and the more helpful your CRM will be.
A great way to use the CRM more is to make shortcuts to Your Workspace on all of your devices. A shortcut is an icon that sits on your device's home screen so that you're always one click away from your CRM. After all, the easier your CRM is to get to, the more likely you are to use it and enter data as you gather it! Below, I'll cover how to create a shortcut on your desktop and mobile devices.
1. Navigate to Your Workspace from your favorite browser (yes, this tutorial works for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox!). Make sure your browser isn't full screen so that you can access the desktop behind it.
2. Highlight the URL in the bar at the top of your browser, and click and hold. Drag the URL (you'll notice a green plus sign appear), and release it over your desktop. An icon with Your Workspace's URL should appear. You can right click on the icon to change its name, or drag the icon and release it over your task bar in order to access it from any home screen on your Mac.
Note: there are several methods for creating a shortcut in Windows, depending on the browser you are using. We're covering the methods for Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox. If you're using a different browser, check out this tutorial on using the Windows Shortcut Wizard.
