We have received feedback that adding new contacts and connections has previously been a little "clunky".
We have revised how you can now add new or existing contacts (individuals and organisations) to other connections (including opportunities and custom objects).
When adding a new contact/opportunity or custom object, you will asked to "connect another contact" at the foot of the box.
From here you will now have two options:
1. Search the database for an existing contact (which you were previously unable to do)
2. Add a new contact entirely
We hope this improves usability for this area of Lighthouse, we welcome your feedback in the comments below.
