Prospect Source Administration


Prospect Sources are used to determine how a prospect record was created and help explain how/where/when a prospect was first engaged with.

  • Each prospect can only be associated with one prospect source.
  • Every prospect source must be associated with one pre-defined category.
  • If a prospect is associated with a prospect source, the prospect source will display on the prospect record's Profile tab.
  • If a prospect submits multiple inquiry forms with different prospect sources, only the prospect source included on the very first form submission will display on the prospect record.
