About the People Menu Area
In the Spark Chart Dashboard there is a PEOPLE menu area where contacts can be added or imported. Contacts can also be added to Participant Lists to provide an easy way to organise the contacts that are planned to be used in projects. Participants may also be added or imported directly into projects without the need to add them to Contacts.
Contacts is the place where contacts can be stored. Contacts can be added individually or they may be imported from CSV files. Contacts can be added to a project from the project's Mission Control. When a contact is added to a project, a copy of the contact is made and they become a "Participant". Editing or deleting the contact in the Contacts Workspace does not change the participant details in the project. Conversely, editing participant details in a project does not change the details in the Contacts workspace.
Participant Lists are where contacts can be stored in lists ready to be imported into projects from the project's Mission Control. Contacts may be added to multiple Participant Lists.
