Add or import your contacts

Getting your contacts into the database allows you to keep an overview of all contacts for your projects. You can do this in two ways:

Add your contacts
Adding your contacts is useful when you want to add a single (or small number) of contacts to the Rentman database.

Import your contacts
Importing your contacts is useful when you want to add all (or a large number) of contacts at once. This works by uploading your .xlsx file (Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets) that contains a complete list of your contacts.

Group your contacts

Customers can sometimes also be your suppliers. Therefore, you might want to group your contacts. You can do this by assigning the same tag to contacts.

  • crew costs 
  • transport costs
  • subhire costs
  • total price of a project
