I already have my leads in another database. Is there any easy way for me to transfer these into PM AM CRM?

  • Select the source where these leads have come from (e.g. trade fair, phone survey, response to advertisement)
  • If these leads should automatically be assigned to you, click on the checkbox. ~Click on Next.
  • You will then have to map all the items in your database to the various fields of the CRM system. If you expect to import similar Excel files into the CRM system then you can also save your mapping.
