Contact is defined in Katmandoo as any person who performs tasks and/or has a role in trials.
Contact comes with the following system columns
|This field is for storing a name for a contact in the database. It has to be unique, but it does not need to be related to any of the other fields (although it often will be)
Examples: John Smith, JaneSmith@email.com, GuestContact12
|This field is for storing a contact’s first name in the database. It is linked to the Contact Last Name as the system cannot have two contacts with the same Name, First Name and Last Name.
Examples: Jane, Neil, Jesse
|This field is for storing a contact’s surname in the database. It is linked to the Contact First Name as the system cannot have two contacts with the same Name, First Name and Last Name.
Examples: Smith, Baker, O’Brien
