  • By default Sync can only create Contact type Records as Leads in SugarCRM. However, depending on your business process and the system you are connecting to SugarCRM, Sync may be able to set up your configuration to create new Records at Contacts instead of Leads. Get in touch with our support team to learn more about how this works.
