Managing Hotlists

In this article, we will look at managing Hotlists in Big Biller. Hotlists are like online filing cabinets where you can store and categorize records. The Hotlist function gives you quick and easy access to custom lists of People, Company, or Job Order records. You also have the ability to further group and organize your records within each list through the use of custom Hotlist categories.
