- Set an email address and phone number for the contact. By clicking the + add icon next to the primary email/phone, you can add as many secondary emails/phones as needed. If your VenueOps account has email and phone types set up, you can select those, as well. For more information about email and phone types, please see Managing Email and Phone Types.
- Set who this contact reports to. This will allow you to build hierarchies of your contacts that you can refer to later.

Each contact will be listed with the account they are in for additional context and in case of shared or similar names. Click the appropriate contact to select it.
- You cannot add a contact using this field. If the contact's manager has not been added yet, you can update this contact once he or she has been added.
