1. Send automated and highly personalized email campaigns to your sales prospects, business partners, or existing customers β˜‘οΈ

2. Set up workflows using triggers and actions. You can create deals and activities in Pipedrive based on prospect engagement - like email opens, clicks, and replies. β˜‘οΈ

How to connect lemlist to Pipedrive?

From the Dashboard access the Settings section by clicking on your profile picture at the top right corner

Step 1. Go to Integrations and connect your Pipedrive with lemlist 😊

Step 2. Go to Pipedrive - Company Settings - Data fields - add custom field

the field will help you sort leads that you want to be added to a specific filter and finally in lemlist campaign

in our example, we named it ''tolemlistcampaign''

Make sure that each person that you want to import has data under it. For better organization add name of your lemlist campaign

Step 3. Go to your Pipedrive account under the Contacts section - choose People

Step 4. Now you need to create a filter where you will have your leads, that will be imported to your lemlist campaign

with the field that we created earlier, we can set up a condition only to have leads with that field and finally give the name of the filter

⚠️ Be careful

If your filters are not shown in your campaign, make sure that you’ve created them in Pipedrive under β€˜PERSONS’ (and not organizations, deals, contact timeline, activities)

Once you select the filter, you should have the list of your leadsπŸ‘‡

lemlister tip πŸ’‘: When you add a person to the Pipedrive, don't forget to add your campaign's name in the created custom field.

How to handle lead's activities ?

By default, all activities of leads (email sent, opened, clicked, replied, same for LinkedIn steps) are added to your lead's file inside your CRM in the form of notes.

If you switch that option, under Settings - CRM integration and no activities will/not be added:

Note that you cannot choose to add some types of activities and not others, it's either all of them or none of them.

πŸ’‘One final note, if you also want to have the campaign's name and lead status synced in your activities, please make sure to enable the following feature in your team settings - integrations:
