The Contacts page is now a great management tool, check out what it can do!
To navigate to the contacts page click on the following symbol:
Here are all the features of the page ⤵️
Creating a contact
Click on the Create Contact button in your dashboard to quickly add a new contact to your portal.
On the bottom left of the contacts page, you can choose to view up to 100 contacts at a time.
On the top left of the contacts page, you can choose various filters that can be applied to the page. You can filter your contacts by name, area codes, you can even filter contacts that were created in the last 2 days, and much more!
The filters can be stacked and the criteria can be saved, so you can always come back and see an updated list later.
Saved Segments were previously "Snap-shots" of contacts that met your filter criteria at the time you saved it. Now, Salesmsg is checking all the time to see if contacts have disqualified or qualified for your segment criteria. Ensuring the contacts in your saved segment always meet that filter criteria.
Note: In regards to sending Broadcasts, a filtered segment of contacts who are to be your broadcast audience will not update when a broadcast is in progress. When a Broadcast begins to send, its a "snap-shot" of contacts that meet the filter criteria at the time the Broadcast started.
Customize your contacts page and see solely the information relevant to you. Name and Number are columns that can not be edited.
Once you select your contacts with a checkmark, you can Apply and Remove Tags, you can also Delete contacts in bulk or individually. Under Contacts, use the Bulk Actions feature to use one of these actions.
Contacts deleted from Salesmsg along with their message histories are restorable. If you accidentally delete a contact add them once more and find that the conversation record is still there.
Select Contacts in succession by holding SHIFT
Once you select your contacts with a checkmark, you can select multiple contacts in succession by clicking another contact in the list and holding SHIFT.

Once you've opened the menu, locate and select the "block" option. Review the confirmation prompt, and select "block".
