Analyze and manage Contacts

Who is a contact?

If a visitor provides contact information such as email address, phone number, etc. that can be used to perform a follow up, the visitor will be converted as a contact.

Contact List:

There are five types of default list available in the contacts module. They are:
  • All Contacts : This list  enlists all the contacts visiting your website.
  • Returning Contact : This list separates the repeated contacts from the all contacts and lists them separately. 
  • Today's Contacts : This list shows all the contacts who visited your website today.
  • Cold Contacts : The contacts who have not visited your website for more than 2 months will be categorized here.
  • New Contacts : The contacts who landed on your website for the very first time will be show here. 

Create your custom list:

You can create your custom list by adding various rules, if followed the contact will be enlisted in your list.

  • In the SalesIQ > People > Contact, click on the (+) icon next to the list type.

  • Set your rules to filter out your desired contact.

How to set rules to filter contacts:

  • Add a name to your list by clicking on the Add a Title on the top.

  • Make a rule from one of the pre-defined conditions available.

  • For example, here we want to categorize the contact who use  Google chrome as their browser. First, select a predefined condition called 'Browser,' now pick ' is' to filter users using the selected browser. Choose the type of browser and click Save.

  • After creating your first rule, you can add more rules to it by clicking 'or / and' next to add another rule.  

  • If you pick 'or' the contact will be filtered if any one rule is satisfied.

  • If you pick 'and' all the rules must be satisfied to be enlisted in the list.

  • After adding the rules, click Save .

  • Now, pick your custom list from the drop down on top, inside the Contacts module.

Sort Contacts in your custom list:

  • You can sort the contact list by choosing an option from the Sort List By drop-down.
