Groups are the first level of organization in the Contacts module. In this view, you'll see all of your contacts segmented in various groups like "All Contacts".
You can add contacts at any time by clicking the "Add Contacts" button.
You can also create a new "Static Group" or a new "Smart Group". Here's an article explaining the difference between static and smart groups.
Clicking on the "add contacts" button lets you add individual contacts or import contacts from an existing CSV file.
Check out this article to learn how to import contacts with our CSV Import Tool.
You can also quickly find contacts by using our global search. Your contacts are shown as all of the groups you have, so to select a certain contact you must go into "All Contacts" at the top.
