This is a very common issue that I see when I review my clients act databases.
In is inevitable that you will create a contact in act by mistake. I see it all the time. In this act video tutorial I will show you how they are created and how to delete them. Just make sure you have a back-up of your act data before you delete stuff; always a good rule to abide by with act data.
The keyboard shortcut for creating a new act contact is the insert key.
Quite often when I look at a clients database I see many empty contacts. When you look at this as a contact list in act, you see a lot of nothing. White space. It makes sense to clean up these contacts but you want to be careful that you don’t delete other contacts by mistake.
When you make a decision to do a lot of data cleanup, I recommend that you make constant backups of your act data. If you make a mistake, you can quickly restore the last backup. Don’t be afraid to make backups with act.
