Learn about stage, lists and tags during import

Stage, list and tag assignment is crucial to maintaining a well organized and efficient CRM. The best way to assign these values to your records are on import, either through List Builder, file import, or manual import.


File import stage assignment

All records in your database are assigned to a stage: Prospects, Leads, Deals, or Removed. Stage assignment varies based on the import method.

File import allows you to choose a stage assignment.

  • New property records will be assigned to the stage you select.

  • Existing records will remain in the same stage, unless moving from Prospect to Lead or Lead to Deal.

    • Records cannot move from Lead to Prospect, Deal to Lead, Deal to Prospect, or out of the Removed stage.

  • If you mapped stage during import mapping, records will be assigned to the stage you select.

  • If you did not map stage during import mapping, the Prospects stage will automatically be assigned to any record with no stage value in your file.

  • If you choose to map to Leads, Deals or Removed, you will be required to also select the Stage Status.

    • Leads and Deals statuses are unique to each user and will display in the dropdown menu.

    • The Removed stage has three statuses: Do Not Contact, Sold, and Other.

    • The status for existing records will remain the same unless moving stages.

Manual import stage assignment

A manual record import designates the stage assignment based on the current stage navigation.

  • In this example, the record is being added while in the Prospects stage and will get the same stage assignment.
