Contact timelines

The contact timeline keeps a chronological history of activity related to the contact.

The timeline can be seen at an individual contact level and a company level.

The company level will show all activity from all contacts at the company. To view the timeline at a company level, open an individual and click on the company name.

A range of information can be shown on the timeline:

  • Activities and tasks
  • Tickets
  • Emails (including copied email from your own systems via the Mail Store app)
  • Order updates
  • Accounting transactions
  • Status changes
  • Notes and calls


The timeline is where you'll be working most with a contact as you develop and manage the relationship.
