Incoming Leads

In this section we will describe all available methods for working with Incoming leads via API.

Table of Contents

Common information

  • Incoming leads is a system stage of the Leads pipeline with additional functionality
  • This stage accumulates leads from different sources to be sorted out by managers
  • There are 4 categories for the Incoming leads: chats, forms, sip (call), and mail
  • Only 2 types are available to add via API: forms and sip.
  • Incoming leads of the chats and mail types are added via built-in tools (chats and mail integrations)
  • When adding an Incoming lead, contact, company data, and metadata (call or form info) can be passed
  • Until the Incoming lead is accepted, contacts and companies linked to it are unavailable in the Lists section
  • There can’t be 2 of the same entity in the Incoming leads. If you attempt to add data that already exists, you will receive an error
  • An Incoming lead can be accepted, declined, or linked to an existing Lead or Customer. Only Incoming leads of the chat type can be linked
