When customers come to your website and fill out your contact form created within the editor or place an order through your eCommerce store, those contacts will now be saved within their own section from your Main Account Dashboard. This means you can now quickly review, respond, and manage these contacts from one dedicated location.
 

This article will cover how to access and manage the contacts from your Contacts CRM within your WebsiteBuilder account. For help with adding a form to your website, check out this article: Add A Signup Form

If you choose any of your contacts from within your Contacts CRM you will be able to edit or view information about the selected contact, ranging from their details to labels, orders, and activity through your website. Below we will outline the various parts of contact information that you will see in the Contact Details tab.
