Checkpoint - New Account

This is a mid-chapter checkpoint. Up to this point you've been building the new account functionality. This will allow users to create as many accounts as they like. Follow these steps to verify your work.

First, start the web server.

# make sure you're at an activated terminal/cmd in the crmeasy dir
(venv)$ pwd

# start the development server
(venv)$ python manage.py runserver

With the web server running, complete these steps:

  1. Open the Account List page
  2. Click on the '+ Add New Account' link
  3. Fill out all of the fields and click the save button

If everything is working correctly, this should save the new account and then display the account detail page for it.
