Clicking on the icon, it is possible to:
- Add Contact: Create a single contact manually

and fill the contact details on the pop-up screen:
Mandatory fields are tagged with *
As in the configuration, additional phones can be added to the contact. They can be associated to the Contact Item Type.
Upload a list of contacts
To upload multiple contacts in a list, you can use an existing list already created using the Section Lists (see Create a list) and select it using the filter section of the form on the left side:
Once you selected a list where to upload your contacts, hover your mouse over icon .
Now click on the Upload CSV icon and select the .CSV file (maximum size= 60MB) from your local file system.

The Motion system will propose the file columns names in order to let you associate each one to the CM Contact fields:
Moreover, you can choose the columns from which additional phone will be retrieved, indicating also the different Contact item type.
At the end click Upload.
Using the Check Duplicates field, you can select one or more contact fields that will be used to check if the contact has been already loaded from the csv file or is already present in the list and if this is the case, duplicate entries will be discarded:
During the Upload, if you need you can stop the process:
At the end you have a summary of the upload process:
and you can export the errors (load failure or duplicate entries) in an excel file.
About Lists used by the Motion Bull Dialer If the list which is being loaded is also associated to a Motion Dialer Bull (Queue/IVR) Campaign, the contacts will also be inserted in the Hopper of the campaign itself and every further information inserted in the following fields will be used by the Dialer to manage the list: ○ Recall Agent ID: the ID of the Agent that should recall the contact (using the Recall Function) ○ Scheduled At: the date and time the contact should be called (eg. 2018-02-25 19:30:00) ○ Priority: the priority of the contact compared to the others (from 0 to 4 where 0 is lowest priority and 4 is highest)
Edit/Modify a contact
To edit a contact, find the contact from the contacts lists and click on Edit Contact.
You can now see the general contacts details, the contact referred to Motion Bull campaigns and Jscripty projects and the contact Customer Journey:
On the left side of the view, you will see all the default contact fields while the custom fields are shown on the right side of the view.
Modify any contact field and then save.
If you want you can Tag the contact using one of the entries in the list.
In the Motion Bull tag, if the Contact is included in a Dialer Campaign (see Motion Bull Dialer) you will find the following information:
- Hopper this section shows if the Contact has still to be dialed
- Hopper Final this section shows if the Contact has been dialed and the State of the action
- Hopper History this section contains history of calls originated by the dialer for this contact
In JScripty tab, you will find the list of JScripty sessions that are associated to the contact. You will find the following information:
- Start and End Time of the session
- The name of the agent who managed the session
- The JScripty project name
This information is only available if the contact was in a Dialer Campaign that triggered the Jscripty project.
In this tab you’ll find all the interactions (e.g. emails, chats, calls, sms, faxes, open channel messages) engaged by this contact with the organization in a timeline:
- The interactions details can be inspected (click on Show Details) and the different icons represent the type of the interaction.
- You can search them for channel type (e.g. Voice, Chat, SMS,…) or for time interval, filtering the results using the filters you find above.
By default, the system will show the interactions elapsed within the current month and the previous three months.
