One of the most attractive features of Open Leads is its flexibility. Open Leads has always been an application that could be used for a variety of different lead types, simply by creating different forms for your different types of leads. The only limitation was that the forms had to be posted or linked to in order to get the Lead data.
With this latest update, though, the flexibility has increased dramatically. Many of our users receive leads from lead generation websites that email the lead information to them. Now, instead of having to manually enter the data into Open Leads, that lead can be written directly into your account.
Account administrators can set up the process first by establishing an email code if you have not done so already. This is done from the “Settings” tab, by clicking on the “Email-in” icon. Here you will see your current email in address (i-CODE@openleads.com) which you can change if you need to at any time. Keep in mind that changing the email address will invalidate the old address and require updating any lead sources that use the existing address.
You may then supply that email code to any third party lead source that supports the email formats supported by Open Leads. Any lead that is emailed to you at that point will then be written directly to your account. Currently Open Leads supports leads from the following:
More are being added as needed. If there is a particular source you need to work with Email-in in Open Leads, please contact us
