May was a bumper month at Pipedrive, with two big new messaging app integrations released, as well as updates to Smart Docs. We also made Campaigns widely available at the start of June.
Pipedrive integrations with WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger
Chat with contacts and manage conversations from different messenger apps in Pipedrive’s Messaging Inbox, which is in the Leads section in Pipedrive.
Install our new Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp Messenger integrations to contact prospective leads and track your conversations without leaving Pipedrive.
You can also intuitively create contacts, leads or deals from conversations and store your conversation history in the related contact, lead or deal.
To make sure your team is never missing out on context, you can share conversations with colleagues and even assign conversations to the ideal team member.
To add our Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp integration apps, head over to our Marketplace. You can also add the apps directly within Pipedrive.
Access Smart Docs in more places and customize categories
If you are a Smart Docs user, you will now find a “Documents” option in the “People” and “Organization” views in Pipedrive, which will give you quick access to Smart Docs.
Internal and external signatures in your documents will also be autofilled differently, depending on where you access Smart Docs from:
|Where you accessed Smart Docs||Whose signature will be autofilled|
|Deals||The linked person's info if it exists|
|People||The person's own information|
|Organizations||The first linked person if one exists|
When a Smart Docs user is editing a document, they can use Pipedrive fields to access more information about the signatory quickly. However, not all fields are available depending on where you were in Pipedrive when you created the document.
If you created the document from Deals, you can use all Deal, Product, Person and Organisation specific fields
If you created the document from Person, you can only see organization- and person-specific fields
If you created the document from Organization, you can only use organization fields
All Smart Docs users can also now categorize their documents and templates to make them easy to filter and search in Pipedrive.
There are four default categories, but all users can also create, edit and delete shared categories and use them to specify any document or template’s category set. Here are the four default categories available to everyone.
You can manage categories in the templates gallery and while editing a template or document.
