The datapicker is for all of us who want to simplify the sign up proces for newcomers, while making sure that all relevant information is attached to the new contacts. The way it works is that your contact picks one piece of predefined information - such as department - and along with this, additional relevant info - could be affiliated manager and name of company - is applied. In this way, you'll make the sign up process faster and more simple for the contacts, as well as easily manageable for you.
Have an Excel spread sheet ready with the information you wish to include in the datapicker:
- Create a message and select Data
- Upload the Excel spread sheet under input data and click on next
- Under search/select, choose the columns for search (search field) and selection (drop down), and set which columns to store on contact fields.
