We recently released a really simple way to create a new contact.
You can use URL parameters to automatically populate the Add Contact form in your OnePageCRM account.
Click on the link and your OnePageCRM account will open on the Add Contact page with the form already populated.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at http://developer.onepagecrm.com/blog/2014/04/04/quick-create-url-params.html

I just used this feature today when creating an integration with Helpscout. Super easy to setup and works well.
It was ideal to use in this case instead of a more complex API integration because a lot of the time Helpscout will only have an email address and won't have a company name or contact name available.
I'll be writing about this integration soon once it is finished.

Michael was in touch with the customer success team to ask what parameters he could use with the Create Contact via URL feature.
The documentation only shows name, company and tags, and he was wondering could he use this to add email and phone number.

The create contact via URL feature works with most fields on the create contact form. You can use it to add a contact with full details including email and phone number.
For example, try this url:
https://app.onepagecrm.com/add_new_contact?firstname=Johny&lastname=Bravo&company=Cartoon Networkemail@example.com&phone=555555&web=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Bravo&job_title=model&background=Johny tried to hit on me&status=prospect
Currently this feature won't work with the address and lead source fields, or any custom fields.
Please let us know if you need theses fields enabled and we will look into implementing them.
