New website and new integration: Zoho CRM

Last week we have released a new website for SalesQL 🏄 

One of the reasons for this change is that now our frontend application and our front website are two separate entities, this way we can optimize it and perform releases independently without the constraints of being part of the same system. 

New Zoho CRM Integration

We have also released a native integration for Zoho CRM, one of the most popular free CRMs, so now you can send leads in real-time to Zoho, and then convert those leads to contacts inside the Zoho platform when you are ready.


New important browser extension release

Last week, we have released a very important browser extension release, if you are using Google Chrome, make sure to manually update to this version (4.1.4).

-> Update Now

If you are using Microsoft Edge, the update will take another week, as it's currently under review.

These are some of the features and improvements we have introduced:

See the full profile from the extension

If you add a profile individually, you will note a new view is opened, here you can see all profile data and metadata, directly from the browser extension:

From this view, it's easier to see all emails and phones found when adding a profile and copy them directly with one click.

Autodetect contacts that are part of your SalesQL account

If you are browsing search results or seeing LinkedIn profiles individually, the extension will now detect if any of the search results are part of your SalesQL account and show all the details immediately.

From here, you can access the full profile data, just clicking on the name.

Read the lead status directly from search results

In combination with the feature described above (autodetect contacts), you can now also see and change the lead status directly from any search results, on recently or previously added contacts.


Add profiles from a list of LinkedIn URLs

This is an important feature, that allows you to import data from other systems or spreadsheets, and to make sure to have the last version of these profiles and the right contact information.

Add profiles from Recruiter and RPS pipelines pages

We have made some improvements in Linkedin Recruiter, Recruiter Lite and RPS to correctly support pipelines pages:


That's all for now, if you have any feedback or any suggestions about this version please let us know 😄 we are always working to make your experience better.

New option to avoid double adding contacts to projects

This week we have released a new version of the Browser Extension (4.0.4), which includes an option to avoid double adding contacts to different projects, and including contacts in two outbound campaigns by mistake:

There are also some improvements in our extension and the webapp:

  • Several fixes in the Hubspot integration
  • Fixes in the extension when filtering by the school on LinkedIn
  • Increased the speed of filtering by projects on millions of contacts


New view wizard and lot of improvements and fixes

This week we have launched a small wizard for creating new views in the contact list, to let you know that you can set up different views for different kind of activities:

The main differentiation is the columns picked and emails/phones sorting, but you can customize views as you want, for example, excluding email types that are not relevant for you.

In addition, there are dozens of other small improvements including:

  • Fixes in the project filter that sometimes got broken filtering by more projects than the ones shown
  • An important fix when processing a profile that has changed a position from one company to another (edited the same position)
  • Improvements in "Assign to a teammate" individually and in bulk
  • Fix in Hubspot when trying to integrate with no projects in your dashboard
  • More performance improvements on the contact list queries
  • Other small improvements and fixes

Full Contact View on the contact list and Lead Status

This week we have released two important features, full contact views on the contact list, and the ability to track the lead status on contacts.

Full contact view

Now if you click on any name in the contact list, you will be able to access the full profile view:

This view is more suitable to access data that is hard to show on a table, like about, job functions details, etc. It allows you to quickly access all the data and metadata related to a contact, and soon we will add more information like activity related to this contact.

Lead Status

There is a new field in the contact list called "Lead Status", this field can be used to track what is the status of each specific lead in your list, and in the future will be tied to automatic triggers that could happen on your social or email activity.

You can always change this status individually or in bulk by selecting more than one contact. Soon this field will be also incorporated into the Browser Extension.

More improvements added in this release

Some other improvements added to this release:

  • New support widget for easily browsing tutorials and contacting support
  • Members of a team are now allowed to leave it directly from the team dashboard, without having to contact the team administrator
  • Aesthetic improvements on the contact list, now the header is fixed, and we have increased the viewport to be able to show more contacts
  • Export settings are now automatically matching the active contact list view
  • Several small improvements on the signup and onboarding process

Some advanced filters are disabled, working on improving speed & stability

This week we have temporarily disabled some of the advanced filters in the contact list including:

  • Emails
  • Phones
  • Skills
  • Past companies
  • Education

The reason is that as our company grows, we are having more and more customers managing millions of contacts, and some of these filters were not working correctly at this scale, so we decided to disable them temporarily in order to improve the way they work.

We are working to improve the overall speed of the platform and at the same time trying to reduce the impact of some queries that are pretty expensive to our systems.

We hope you understand and we will let you know when these features are enabled again.

Security Improvements, New Export UI, and More

This week we have released some important security improvements, as during the last weeks we have been receiving very sophisticated brute force attacks, using thousands of IPs (probably a botnet) on some of our public endpoints, between other threats.

So you don't have to worry as we have a DevOps and security team monitoring our tech stack 24/7 in order to find any anomaly in bad login attempts, internal APIs usage, latencies, etc.

We have also published a new UI for exporting data:

And performed an important fix when sorting the emails by type (work or personal first).


Sorting Data From Columns Headers and More

This week we have made a lot of small improvements in the contact list, the most noticeable is that now you can sort the columns data (when available) directly from the column header:

We have been also working on fixing the differences in validation status between the extension and the dashboard.

There are a lot of small style improvements on the contact list, and soon there are going to be more settings regarding email order, the kind of emails to show, more space to show more rows, etc.

Have a great end of the week!

Views Autosave and More Improvements in the Contact List

Yesterday we have released another iteration of changes and improvements over the contact list, now views are saved automatically after altering columns, sorting data, or changing the email settings.

We have also incorporated an advance filter for projects, which allows you to exclude projects from the results and avoid exporting the same people twice:

We have written a help article explaining how it works and how to avoid exporting the same contacts twice.
