  5. Click "save".

Creating Clients

  3. Name the client url fragment (yoururl.com/clientname).
  4. Upload a logo (Width = 200, Height = 55).
  5. Check the "active" box.
  6. Choose a user. This designates what login info will be assigned to the client url.
  7. Create projects (ie. "Alexander Interactive" or "AI2883 Alexander Interactive").
  8. Designate urls for each project (yoururl.com/clientname/projectname).

Creating Contacts

  4. Number the categories under "ordering." The first should be labeled "0," the second should be "1", and so forth.
  5. Check a default category. The default will automatically display that tab when you hit the project url.
  6. Click "save and continue editing" to register the categories. When the page refreshes, there will be links to edit categories above the category names.
