Wizard: alert

The Alert Wizard is a feature that allows you to send automatic email notifications to users, regarding recent contact activity on the monitored website. An alert is sent when a contact visits the specified page or subpage. If more than one site is selected, an alert will be sent after either site is visited. This feature is very useful for sales specialists as it allows them to immediately contact the customer faster and better prepared.

To create a customer activity alert, go to Automation Processes -> Wizards -> Sales Alert.
