Let’s take a tour of FM Quickstart 19!


Task List

Creating and assigning tasks to your team is easier than ever with our new Task List module. Simply create a task for any date or time range, and select the user you wish to assign it to. From there, you can tie a task to a particular prospect, customer, or account. The task will then show up under the Tasks dashboard as well as under the specified contact, and on the Calendar screen.


The long awaited FM Quickstart Calendar is finally here! Manage your calendar within your CRM with our new Calendar module. Create and modify tasks on the Task List and they will automatically appear on your Calendar screen.
