Within Groupdesk, there are 2 different types of Contact records, Primary contacts and Domain Contacts.
The main contact which contains the Profile log in information such as email and password.
Associated to a Primary Contact via the Primary Contact field on the Contact Record Overview. Domain contacts may not have an email address, and do not have a password and must access their online Profile through the Primary contact's login information.
The Domain contacts module is located on the Contact record. This module contains information about the contacts that a Primary Contact is associated with. It contains the name and link to contact, booking code and status, email, phone, actions and the ability to add and remove the domain contact from the Primary contact. If a Primary contact does not have any domain contacts associated, this module will be empty.
