Creating a list of contacts can help you get the right message to the right people at the right time. Contacts who share the same properties or common characteristics can be grouped into the list.
There are two types of lists in Aloware Talk:
Public Lists - these are lists created by the admin and are displayed to all users
My Lists - these are lists created by the agents and is seen exclusively on the agent's account
Different Types of Contact Lists
When you create a contact list in Alo Talk, you may want to include or exclude contacts in the list. To do this, you need to understand the type of list you are working with and the contacts you want to add or remove from the list.
You can create and use a static or a dynamic list in your Alo Talk:
