How to Set Up Custom Fields

Custom Properties (Definition, Types and Set up process)



Custom properties offer the flexibility to add additional fields to your call records, capturing specific information tailored to your needs. They come in various forms such as boolean, dropdown list, custom text, number fields, and even a date picker. These properties can be utilized for filtering, labeling, classification, or even as triggers to send call data to your integrated apps. Online your imagination can stop you when it comes to custom properties.

⚡️ Use out-of-the-box ideas to classify, organize, filter, and analyze your phone leads efficiently - Custom properties like checkboxes, free text, numbers, or even dates allow you to enhance your call data with additional information.

⚡️ Get a quick glance at your leads - Use specific custom properties for a quick scan of leads that meet certain criteria e.g. Check the quality of leads generated from a branded campaign versus those from a non-branded one.
