For Admins: How do I start a Flight for a lead or contact?

There are three methods for placing one or more leads or contacts on a Flight Plan and initiating their individual Flights.

  • Methods 1 and 2 will allow you to easily add multiple leads/contacts (passengers) to a Flight Plan from previously created Salesforce reports/lists.
  • Method 3 allows you to add one lead or contact at a time to a Flight. 

The methods are discussed sequentially below:
