Record Interactions With Contacts

Setting up your application to record interactions consists of these tasks:

  • Setting up interaction templates
  • Creating interactions on contacts or segments
  • View and manage recorded interactions

Setting up Interaction Templates

Before you can create and record interactions, you must set up interaction templates. When creating interactions, you must specify the interaction templates they are based on. An interaction template is a model that defines the basic characteristics of an interaction. You set up an interaction template on the Interaction Templates page.

After you have entered information about the interaction template, you can create an attachment, for example, a Microsoft Word document. Repeat the steps to set up as many interaction templates as you want.

Creating Interactions

There are two ways of recording interactions:

Viewing and Managing Recorded Interactions

You can view all the recorded interactions that have not been deleted on the Interaction Log Entries page. You can open this page by:

  • Using the Search for Page or Report icon to search on Interaction Log Entries.
  • Choosing the Interaction Log Entries action on a contact or segment. The Interaction Log Entry page contains the interactions you create manually and the interactions that the application records automatically.

In this page, you can:

  • View the status of interactions.
  • Mark interactions as canceled.

You can delete interaction log entries that have been canceled. To delete interaction log entries, choose the Lightbulb that opens the Tell Me feature. icon, enter Delete Canceled Interaction Log Entries, and then choose the related link, and then fill in the information.
