Contact Lists allow you to manage all of your Account contacts in the Pepperi Managers App on any browser. GDPR (or other data protection regulations) require you to have the ability to search for and permanently delete an individual's contact data from your Pepperi data upon their request. After creating the lists following the instructions below, you will be able to permanently delete your contacts upon their request: Deleting Contacts.
Contacts are loaded under Accounts. Contacts are associated with your customers (typically people who work at the stores you sell to). They may be buyers using the Pepperi Storefront for self-service ordering, or simply contact people that you want your Pepperi users to have information about in the app.
If you are using Pepperi Storefront for B2B self-service ordering, then you must load at least one contact for each store you wish to access the Storefront and connect them as a buyer. You may connect as many contacts as you need from each store as buyers directly from the Contacts List. An email will be sent to the contacts inviting them to order from your Storefront (learn how to configure the invitation email using HTML)
Example of a Contact List view in the Pepperi Manager app:
Create several contact lists, each filtered for your needs. For example all contacts with a certain role, or with emails containing "mycompany.com".
To create Contact Lists go to: Settings -> Contacts -> Contact Lists
Click Create New List
In the "General Info" section you can define a list based on filters. For example, you can filter by any contact fields such as email, ID, first/last name, Hidden, and more.
In the "Configuration" define the fields to be added as columns in the list.
Configure the search criteria for all contact lists.
Search - configure which fields you can search the list by when typing into the search box. You may search by any field, for example search by name, ID, city, role, etc.
Smart Search - configure which fields the smart search menus will appear for in the left margin of the list.
Example of Smart search by City, Store name (the Account the contact belongs to) and Creation date of a contact:
Add the Contact List to the Home Screen. Users logging in to the Manager App on a browser will be able to see the lists (note that mobile device users will not see the button on the home screen).
To configure the Home Screen: App Home Screen Configuration
Make sure to add the field under "General" as shown here:
Contacts button on home screen of Manager App:
Admin users can connect and disconnect all contacts. Other users will only be able to connect/disconnect buyers for Accounts they are assigned to.
Enter the Contact List, select the contact/s you wish to connect/disconnect. Select Edit -> Connect /Disconnect Buyer from the menu.
To see which of your contacts are connected as buyers. add the "Is Buyer" field to the contact list:
If you are connecting, the email notification will display. You may edit the email body (if you are an administrator you can modify the template). The contact will receive the email invitation along with a Pepperi generated password (which they can change at any time using the standard change password procedure).
If you are disconnecting a contact, select it and click Edit -> Disconnect Buyer and confirm. The buyer will not be notified of being disconnected, they will no longer be able to log in to Pepperi Storefront.
