Best Practices

  • The Quick Action Menu is great for adding smaller handfuls of contacts into the system. However, if you have a larger number of contacts to add, such as a list of prospects from a feeder school or summer camp, consider doing a bulk import instead.

  • Similarly, if you have many scanned documents to upload for students, consider using the Bulk File Upload Tool instead of uploading them individually to each student.
