The datapicker is for all of us who want to simplify the sign-up process 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 the 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 spreadsheet ready with the information you wish to include in the datapicker:

  1. Create a message and select Data

  2. Upload the Excel spreadsheet under input data and click on next

  3. Under search/select, choose the columns for search (search field) and selection (dropdown), and set which columns to store on contact fields.
