With the Zendesk Sell geolocation feature you can use your mobile to see your leads and contacts on a map and reach them with one-touch driving directions.
The Sell mobile app maps all of your leads and contacts 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 or lead to get specific information, for example, deal size, or driving directions.
Geo verification is the capability to verify a user's location using geolocation on their device each time a user logs a visit. Sell might not be able to verify a visit if the lead or contact's address is too far away (more than 200 yards) from the user's location or if geolocation is disabled on the user's device. In both cases we'll mark the visit as unverified.
Go to the leads or contacts page and click the icon on the top left of your device to toggle to the map view. Here you will see pin drop icons for any nearby people.
To filter your map, click the filter icon at the top right of the screen. Choose fields to filter by to narrow down your results.
