Frame ⑤: config which fields you want to import, the import time, the options when there're duplicated records. When the campaign has predictive dialer enabled, you can see a new drop down menu under each fields, so you can config which fileds to import to dial list, when you want to dial and the call priority in the dial list.

only select a table in frame ③, you can see these options in frame ⑤

Import data to customer package

In the system, we have two kinds of customer package,

  1. The main table: In the package, it only has customer information
  2. Regular customer package: In the package, it will have both customer information and all the others (like contact log)

so when a campaign is using main table, you have to import to main table first, then assign these records to the campaign.

Select the table from the drop down menu in frame ③, then configure the fields you want to import, if you want to import the numbers to predictive dialer list in a campaign, you can configure the “predictive dialer” fields

Import Data to Main Table

The customer packages of customer service module and campaign module which uses main table all employs the customer data from main table. Importing data to the main table will increase the customer base of the two modules.

Main table is main individiual table or main orginazition table, each team has its own main tables

In the import page, selece a team in the pull-down menu, and the main table of this team will be shown below, contains two options, “individual” and “orginazition”
