Categorizing Contacts (People and Companies) will help you keep your contact list organized, and allow you to prioritize your follow ups accordingly.
Default Contact Types:
- Potential Customer
- Current Customer
To Change a Contact Type for a Contact:
1 - You can change the Contact Type for a Contact from the preview pane in the list view or from the contact's details page.
2 - Choose the desired Contact Type from the drop-down menu next to "Contact Type"
Note: There is a workflow associated with the Potential Customer contact type whereby when you create a new contact and categorize the contact as a Potential Customer, you will be prompted to add an Opportunity to your pipeline, which allows you to track this potential customer through your sales process all the way to closing the deal.

Note: You must be an Admin of the ProsperWorks account to create custom contact types
3 - Select Contact Types under "Customize ProsperWorks"
4 - Click on the New Contact Type button
