Using geolocation features from your mobile phone

all Sell plans

With the Zendesk Sell geolocation feature you can use your mobile to see your leads, contacts, and deals on a map and reach them with one-touch driving directions.

The Sell mobile app maps all of your leads, contacts, and deals making it easy to identify who you should visit and where you should spend your time. Zoom out to get the big picture, zoom in to view more detail, and tap on any contact, lead, or deal to get specific information, for example, deal size, or driving directions.

Note: You'll need to turn on location services to use geolocation. When you first launch the Sell mobile app you will have a pop up to grant the app access for location services.  Click accept in order for the geolocation services to work, or grant access in Settings.
