Create and manage your properties

Property is a characteristic of an object in GetProspect. You need properties to sort and store the data on particular objects — contacts and companies. 

In GetProspect account you can:

  • Create custom properties

  • Edit created properties

  • Create and edit property groups

Create custom properties

Custom properties serve to add extra data to your objects.

To create a new property:

1. choose the Settings icon (in the top right corner of your account)

2. go down to the Properties section

3. click the button: Create property 

4. on the panel that appears setup your property:

  • Object type: choose what object the property is dedicated for 

  • Group: place the property in the appropriate group

  • Label: type the property name

  • Description: type what the property means

Pay attention: in case the name of the property you try to create is identical to one of the current properties, you will see the message: "We found similar existing properties for you."

5. Go Next

6. Choose the Field type from the dropdown menu:

  • Multi-line text: stores strings with text and numbers, for example, paragraphs or lists.

  • Single-line text: stores a string with text and numbers — a word, a phrase, or a sentence.

  • Date picker: stores a date value.

  • Number: stores a line of numbers. You can format numbers with commas, like this, 1,000,000.

  • Dropdown select: stores multiple-option; you can select only one option as a value.

  • Multiple checkboxes: stores multiple-option; you can select several options as values.

  • Single checkbox: stores two options, yes and no.

  • Link: stores a hyperlink.

In field types with options (as Multiple checkboxes and Dropdown select) add the distinct options: 

  • Label: type the option name.

  • Internal value: displays the value used for syncing with integrations.

  • Add an option: click to create a new option.

  • Load options...: click to add several options at once.

  • Clear all: click to delete all created options.

Click Create.
