Adding Contacts Made Easier In The LienPilot

We made a small improvement to the LienPilot last week in how project contacts are added to your database. Previously, after pressing the “Add Contact” link, the user was directed to a second page where the contact information was requested. When the contact information was entered, the user was brought back to the project’s contact screen.

The multiple screen flow here was unnecessary, and you can now add a project contact without ever leaving the contact page. When you press the “Add Contact” button, the contact fields appear.

While this is a subtle change, it really makes a difference in the usability of this page, and if you’re inputting a lot of contacts it can save a lot of time. Here’s a screenshot of how this feature looks now:
