Use Visits Tab

The Visits tab is available by default in your Zoho CRM account. You can view the visits data of any specific SalesIQ account. The list of available accounts will be displayed in the drop-down. As soon as you enable the integration, before any visits are captured, the Visits tab will have a link to "Send to Webmaster".

The link will not be available once the visits starts coming in. Each record in the Visits tab will provide you details on the IP Address of the visitor, the page that was visited, referrer, time spent on the page, etc. These details are captured from the website with the help of Zoho SalesIQ integration and cannot be modified by the users.

Just like other modules, the Visits tab can be hidden for certain user profiles. The administrator can hide the tab and additionally restrict permissions for ViewingCreating and Deleting records. See Also Managing Profiles

CRM View for Visits Tab

Along with the normal List Views, the Visits tab has a CRM view that segregates  your website visitors' details based on the creation time of the visit. They are grouped under three categories:
  • Customers - Lists the visitor tracking details related to the contacts with at least one potential that is won and closed.
  • Potential Customers - Lists the visitor tracking details related to the contacts with at least one potential in pipeline.
  • Leads/Contacts - Lists the visitor tracking details related to the leads and also the contacts that do not fall under the other two categories.

Choose the required account from the drop-down to view all the visits data of that particular account.

The CRM View gives you holistic view of all the details related to the visitor. You can check the visitor's details that is already available in CRM, view the chat histories, visit details, mail conversations, potential summary, activities, notes, etc.

Choose the required portal from the drop down and view the visits data of that particular portal.

Automate Sales Processes on Visit Creation

You can configure workflow rules on the creation of a visit. For example, as soon as a visit is created, you may want to automate sending an email to the related lead. In such cases, you can configure workflow rules for the Visits module.

  • When you configure a workflow rule for the Visits module, you will see only the Create rule trigger. The other rule triggers like EditField Update etc are not available for the Visits module.
  • When Workflow Actions are configured on creation of Visits, those actions will be executed for the leads/contacts associated with the Visit and not for the Visit itself. For example, when alerts are configured for the visit, the emails are sent to the leads/contacts associated with the visit. Similarly a task created on the creation of the visit is assigned to the record owner of the associated lead/contact.

Check Visitor Tracking Notifications

During the setup, the administrator can enable the Visitor Notification option so that users can receive popup notification whenever there is a visitor to your web page. This can also be defined in Zoho SalesIQ from Settings > Integrations > Zoho CRM > CRMConfiguration.

When the visitor tracking code is added in your website, all the visitors will be tracked and you will start getting notifications within Zoho CRM, for the visits. Ideally, it is not feasible to manage the overwhelming visits and the notifications but to help you with that we have Routing Rules.

With Routing Rules, you can manage which visitor details needs to be tracked and route it to sales reps. These sales reps would then be automatically notified whenever a visitor visits your website and their details meet the criteria in the routing rule.

To add routing rules

  1. In Zoho CRM, go to Setup > Channels > Chat. 
  2. In the Visitor Tracking page, click Settings > Routing Rules.
    A new tab with the settings for routing rules in Zoho SalesIQ will be available.

  3. Under  Rules , do the following:
    • Specify the criteria based on which you want the visitors to be tracked.
    • Select an option to route the notifications about the visits to the sales reps.
    • Select an Action to be performed.

  4. Select the Route rest of the visitors to all agents check box, if required.
  5. Click Add for more rules.

Track Online Visitors

Zoho SalesIQ integration allows tracking online visitors within your CRM. You will have a portal wise filter, so that you can track the visits data for that particular portal.

You will get notifications for different types of visitors such as:

  • Customer Online Notification
  • Lead/Contact Online Notification
  • Potential Online Notification

  • Unknown Visitor Online Notification

  • Multiple Notifications

Besides Routing Rules you can create your own automated chat triggers based on your business needs. You can increase visitors' conversation by configuring triggers based on specific actions performed by the visitor on your website.

Identify Visitors Online

In addition to the regular visitor tracking notification popups, you can also watch out for green dots besides your customers' names to know if they are online on your website. This green dot is designed to appear in the List View and the Details pages of Leads and Contacts. It also appears in the Contacts section of Accounts, Activities, and Deals Details pages.

Leads/Contacts List view

You can select all the leads/contacts online in a particular page at one shot if you want to apply a mass action on those records. To do this, simply select one online lead/contact and click the Select All Online Leads/Contacts in this page link subsequently appears.

Accounts details page

Deals details page

Activities details page

To add Intelligent Triggers

  1. Go to Setup > Channels > Chat. 
  2. In the Visitor Tracking page, click Settings > Triggers.
    A new tab with the settings for adding chat triggers in Zoho SalesIQ will be available.
  3. Under  Rules , do the following:
    • Specify the criteria for the chat trigger.
    • Specify the action to be performed when the criteria is met and the rule is triggered.

  4. Click Add for more rules.

Make Calls to Visitors

You can make calls to the online visitors right within your CRM, in case the entity has a mobile number associated with it. You can add the mobile number to the contact created and make calls if necessary either using Skype or PhoneBridge integration. Once the contact number is associated, a call icon will be created in the visitor online section within your CRM.

View Google Ads Information

A user who has enabled Google Ads Integration as well as Zoho SalesIQ integration will have the benefit of viewing Google Ads information in the corresponding Visits tab as well. If a new visitor enters a site by clicking on a Google Ads campaign and fills up a form, the following actions occur in Zoho CRM:

  1. A lead is created in the Leads module. The Leads Details page presents the Google Ads information as well as Visitor Tracking information.
  2. In addition to this, the lead appears in the Lead/Contact stream of the Visitis module. The same Google Ads information is included in the Marketing Information section of a Visit's Details page as well.

This tracking information is obtained with the help of the GCLID that is appended to every URL on your site upon Google Ads integration. See also: Understanding the GCLID Mapping in Zoho CRM

To view the Google Ads information in the Visits Details page

  1. Click on the Visits Module
  2. Click on the desired Visit

  • If there are no portals integrated in your CRM, then all the available portals in SalesIQ will be displayed. You can also choose a specific portal, so that the visitor tracking for that particular portal will be enabled.
