Aliases are other names that your contacts may be known by, such as a business name or trading name. The Main tabs on the Contact, Client, Employee, (AE) Supplier and (AE) Assignment Details pages have an area where aliases can be defined. Aliases can also be used as search criteria. Only the alias Name can be deleted and not the alias Type.

  2. Click the Aliases Type field to activate a drop-down arrow.
