Visitor Tracking - Zoho SalesIQ

Identifying and analyzing visitors on SalesIQ dashboard

Identifying visitors helps you to enable you to identify visitors, view and record the trail of every visitor visiting your website(s) and more importantly it allows you to view info like name, geolocation etc., of the visitors and lets you initiate a proactive chat at any point of time.   

Rings View 

Rings view is the face of SalesIQ, which is a dashboard that gives a visual overview of your visitors' info based on various customizable conditions . By default, the priority drops from inner through the outer ring .  
Details like, Name or a Random ID assigned to the visitor, time spent by the visitor on your website and Country from which the visitor is would be displayed over the rings in the form of small tiles for the visitors who are currently browsing through your website. More importantly, SalesIQ allows you to track a set of predefined actions performed by the visitors by just having a glance at your priority rings.

List View

The List view gives you a traditional overview of your customer information. In this view, the filtered and prioritized visitors would be categorized and organized into columnar data based on the criterions specified by you in the Customize option.

Predefined visitor actions 

SalesIQ comes with various predefined visitor actions which can be tracked in the Ring View/List view out of the box to ease and speed up your visitor tracking process. A set of actions that can be tracked right away are as follows :

Customize Tracking Views

SalesIQ allows the operators to filter and prioritize the visitors routed to them. This can be done by specifying a set of criterions in the Customize tab in the top right corner of the Visitors online tab window. Based on the criterions set by you the visitors will be filtered and organized around the priority rings in the ring view or as columnar data in the list view. Doing so, will let you target prospective visitors rather than desiccating the  time and resource over visitors who may not be quite profitable. Priority drops from inner ring through the outer ring in the ring view and from left through right in the case of list view. More importantly the customization rules set by an operator is limited to their account only.


Zoho SalesIQ provides the operators with four predefined filters, which are as follows
  1. By Action – Actions performed by the visitor on your website (Eg., Accessed, Clicked, Contacted, etc.)
