Configuring CRM Fields
Using Configuration Options, you can adjust the settings for your CRM Fields.
The Field Name will be used for reference throughout the system.
Quick Tip: We recommend choosing something short and easy for your Agents to understand.
The Field Type determines what kind of data can be stored in a Field.
Note: The Field Type on existing CRM fields may not be editable.
|Field Type||Use Case||Notes|
|Limited Text||Best for storing small amounts of text information, such as names.||The character limit is 512 characters (including spaces).|
|Unlimited Text||Can be used for storing larger amounts of text information, such as descriptions.||Not recommended to include in Search, as searching large amounts of text may delay the return of Search results.|
|Dropdown Box||Can be used to present a drop down menu with a list of options to choose from.|
Add Options to the list using the Option Field (1) and Add Option Button (2).
|Phone||Can be used to store additional phone numbers.||The format is 000-000-0000.|
Numbers stored in Custom Phone Fields cannot be used to dial Leads using the AI Dialer. They are available for manual dialing only.
|Currency||Can be used to store monetary amounts.||Only numbers and the $ character can be entered.|
|Date||Can be used for storing dates.||The format is YYYY-MM-DD.|
|Date + Time||Can be used for storing date and time together.||The format is DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM <AM/PM>.|
