The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) kicks in later this month on May 25th. We have been preparing for it and wanted to share what we’ve been doing and what it means for you.
First, the GDPR makes a distinction between data Controllers and Processors. You, our users, are Data Controllers. You determine what personal information you want to collect and how and where it is stored and processed. That makes us the Data Processor. We store the personal data that you collect and allow you to search and retrieve it.

We added a few new features to the emails section in Lead Zeppelin last month for your enjoyment.
Email Delivery Stats
First, when you go to your Emails in the settings area, you’ll now see stats for total number of emails sent as well as their corresponding open rate to give you a better idea of how they’re doing.

We like to stick to basics around here, but some Zeppelin fans have asked for some more stats on your deals, and we listened!
We’ve added Average Days to Close to your Deals page, as well as Probability % to your individual deals.

Some CRMs won’t let you restrict visibility to a user’s leads, leaving them open for the whole team to view. We have you covered there, and always have. You can assign a lead to a user, and users can only see leads assigned to them.
But what about sales managers, compliance, or some non-sales person in your group that needs to see what’s going on with a particular lead?
We’ve added a new feature called Followers where you can grant restricted access on a lead-by-lead basis to other users in your account.
You’ll see a box on the right side of the contact’s page with a list of the users in your account. Check the box and they’ll be able to see the lead as well, even if they’re not assigned. They won’t be able to edit or delete any information from the record, just view it.
We’ve just added the ability to set up multiple events for your Autopilot triggers.
In this example, we can isolate a lead that registered on the website from a particular form that hasn’t had it’s status changed from New after 49 days have its status automatically changed to Lost and get an auf wiedersehen email.
Continue reading Multiple Trigger Events Added
We’ve just added IP Address tracking to the Docking API. Once you have the script added to your website, your logged in visitors’ IP will pass thru to their contact record in Lead Zeppelin.
We’ve also linked the IP Address so you can obtain more information about it from a 3rd party website.
Just in time for your New Year’s resolution to close more leads, we’ve added a daily email reminder for your tasks that day. You can find this in your Profile > Preferences section. Just check the box to turn them off or on.
Have some of your sales reps gotten tag happy in your account, making tags not so helpful anymore? We’ve just added a Tag Manager to the Settings section to help with that.
You can now see all the tags in use in your account, as well as a count for each type they’re being used for. They’re also linked so you can quickly jump to one and see which leads, companies or deals are using that tag.
Continue reading Tidy up your tags
We recently added Date Added to your people screens, so you can see when your contacts or leads were added to your Lead Zeppelin account. This can come in handy in seeing how old your leads are that you are still working.
You can also turn this field on in the main People tab so it shows up as a sortable column. Try using it to prioritize your older leads, when you’re working your list.
It’s not just for people, you can add avatars and tags to companies in your account too!
