New Feature – Weblinks Reorder

On the accounts and contacts pages in LeadMaster users are provided with Weblinks.  These are customizable links to things like search engines, contact databases, social media sites and customer specific applications.

These weblinks can provide you with additional information about the current records.

For example, suppose you have a company in your LeadMaster system that you’d like to know more about.  Just go to the record for that company and click on one of the links (Google Search, Google News, JigSaw, FaceBook, Blog Search, Twitter, Manta, LinkedIn, Spoke etc.) and you’ll be taken directly to the results for that company.  You can also do the same thing for contacts.

This is just one of the many ways LeadMaster makes life easier for reps by providing access to information with just a single click of the mouse.

If you make extensive use of weblinks you may want to specify the order to make it easier for you to find the weblink you’re looking for.  Now you can!  Simply click on the up/down arrows on the left hand side of the page to reorder your weblinks.

The above example shows a few weblinks, the possibilities are endless.

It’s fairly easy to create these weblinks.  Suppose you want to create a weblink for Google.  Go to Google and search on two words – any two words.  Why two words?  Because it will make it easier to create a search query that will work with any company no matter how many works are in the company name.

After you get your search results look at the address bar.  The search results are actually an URL.

Now copy the URL for the search results and paste it into your weblink.  Ok, you are half way there.  Now you have to replace the two words you chose with the variable for the company.  The end result should look like this – http://www.google.com/search?q={!Company}

That’s all there is to it.  Now you have a weblink for Google that will search on the company.  You can do that same thing for Bing or Yahoo or virtually and website that returns an URL for search results.

Take a look at other weblinks for examples.  It’s easy.
