External contacts on Handshake are teammates or other individuals from your company that represent your organization and can serve as the focal point of information concerning an activity, such as a job or event.
To create an external contact, follow the steps below:
1. Click on Contacts on the left navigation bar, then click on Add Contact in the upper-right corner of the page.
2. Fill out the necessary information for this contact and click on Create Contact when finished. Please note that fields marked with an asterisk* are required.
- *Email address
- *First name
Once the contact is created, the contact will be added to your company's contacts list on Handshake.
Note: this does not create a Handshake account for a teammate who does not have a user account on Handshake. It will only store their contact information within the system, enabling them to receive information, including attachments as it relates to the activity via email.
