Adding Details from Zoho Mail

Most of the customer interactions are through emails and so, Zoho Mail provides an easy way to collect the contact information and store it in your Zoho CRM account. When a prospective customer sends an email, you need not manually add the Lead information in your Zoho CRM account. From within Zoho Mail you can add the email address as a lead in CRM. In addition to this, you can also add customer details as Contacts in CRM and create related Tasks, Events, Notes, and Deals for the contacts. This option will be available only if you activate the Zoho Mail Add-on feature.

To initiate the integration with Zoho CRM, click on the eWidget icon () at the bottom right corner in your Zoho Mail inbox.
