  1. Follow up Via Text Message

    Many clients respond better to text than email as they do not get lost in the clutter. Have the FOLLOW UP option to send a text message or email.

    • Have texting ability from the Desktop.

      When working on my laptop Id like to be able to text instead of switching to the mobile app.

      • Add Scale texting

        Imagine you're hosting an event, and you'd like to send a last minute reminder to your guests.

        Sometimes texting is more effective than email.

        Just like ScaleMail, wouldn't it be nice to send 50 personalized texts with the click of a button! Bonus points if you can send the texts from my personal phone number.

        • birthday

          For re-occuring events such as birthday, anniversary, or other it would be good to have an optional advance notice to allow time to prepare if a card is being mailed or gift sent etc. The link to Send out Cards is great but not very useful if you are only reminder the day of the persons birthday.

          • Start Tracking Google Voice as Interaction

            I use Google voice to text/call people. I would love such interactions to be contacted as interactions within Contactually.

              We’ve definitely heard this from many other users, and intend to build out this integration in the future.

              Unfortunately, we don’t have an exact timeframe yet (although I think it’s a great idea!). Stay tuned!

            • Add the social network XING

              XING is the German LinkedIn.

                  Thanks for your feedback – I’m going to add this idea to our feature suggestion list, and we’ll see if we can add it to our development schedule I’ll keep you posted!

                • Ability to move to the previous or next contact record

                  After you filter a list of contacts, and enter on a contact record; you should be able to move to the previous or next contact record using arrows located at the top of the page.

                  It's too time consuming going back and forth to the list view.

                  • Ability to Capture Leads from Personal Websites, Landing Pages, other Web forms

                    PLEASE add the ability to Capture Leads from sources Personal Websites, Landing Pages, and other web forms. Almost all Realtors have personal websites and many more are using landing pages, FB and other web forms to capture leads. Where do I send those leads and automate drip campaigns if Contactually won't accept them? FYI there is a $99/year competitor of yours that currently offers this functionality (I think Contactually is superior overall). They simply assign a unique "Prospect" email to each account and that email is used in the "mailto:" field on any web form. When any form using that…

                        I'd love to have gmail contacts "groups" sync with buckets. Then I wouldn't have to organize my contacts twice. Bucketing is so tedious. I already have it done in Gmail to keep contacts organized and have to do it all over again in Contactually.

                        • We need real time email sync..

                          Whats the point of sending emails through contactually if you can't get the responses for several hours? Having to use my regular email server and contactually is annoying.

                            Since you have access to my Inbox, you should be able to remove dead or bouncing email addresses from the contact list that I have in Contactually -- I would love YOU to remove junk email addresses from my contacts list on the site.

                            • Add a specific date to follow up with a contact

                              I have a hot leads bucket, which reminds me to chase those people up every other day, which is great. But, in some cases my hot leads are waiting on something else to happen and so it's pointless my harassing them daily. It would be great if I could snooze the follow up to a specific date for a particular contact.

                              For example, I have a client called John who has to see the police in two-weeks. There's no point in my chasing him up every day because nothing has changed for him. But, I would like to get a…

                              • add ability to attach a Task to a Deal in pipelines

                                Contactually would be perfect if I could also attach a task to a deal to move the deal forward. It is a pain to have to go to the contact to add or see tasks. When in pipelines the goal is to move the deal forward; sometimes this includes the contact but most often not.... it is a task specific to the deal.

                                ideally, all tasks for the people in the deal would show in the deal and all tasks for the deal would show at the contact level also.

                                Thanks!

                                  I noticed there is no way to connect my business page to contactually, that's a shame because as a business I spend time building my business pages not my personal pages so all the time and money I spent building my facebook fan page can not be accessed from contactually. Contactually should consider allowing users to connect the business pages after all we are using this system to build our business!

                                  • Extend your Zapier Integration to Auto-Bucket Contacts and Add Deals

                                    I appreciate you all adding the Zapier integration to your platform, however it does not go far enough. I still find myself having to go back through and bucket contacts that have been added to Contactually via Zapier. Furthermore, it would be cool if a new deal would be added automatically via Zapier too.

                                      We’re definitely looking at extending the Zapier integration beyond its current state. Stay tuned!

                                    • Postal mail merge from contacts.

                                      Anyone ever want to send a letter on real paper? I find it pretty effective in today's digital flurry overload. Would be nice to be able to integrate Contactually with Word or Google Docs...

                                        The iphone app let's you edit contacts and add notes, interactions, buckets, etc... basically it has all the functions of the full online version. The android app has none of these functions, which is a huge disappointment. Can you make the android app have the full functionality that the iphone app has?

                                        • Pipeline/Program/Bucket Integration

                                          Create an integration so that buckets can be assigned to stages in a Pipeline. This would allow a program to be automated as a client moves through the buckets, essentially allowing the Pipeline to be an overview of the clients flow in the process. This would provide a true revenue dashboard so I can view how and what deals are progressing at a glance.
