Creating Contact Categories
Add your categories to your database manager to successfully import your contacts later.
Category is the descriptive label that defines a Contact's Professional Industry.
These labels should be relatively general and limited to 5-8 different options.
If you need to add more detail to a person's Professional Industry, that should be done using the Contact Type field.
Examples of appropriate categories include:
