Classification Codes, Working with Lead Categories

Return To The Knowledge Base

Sales leads/prospects are categorized using lead categories. As an example, you might enter a constituent who is a potential volunteer. In this case you could select the lead category, "Potential Volunteer". Lead categories are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with system level lead categories and users can add their own as well. Users can only delete lead categories they have added. System Lead Categories serve a purpose in the system, so they can't be deleted. Lead Categories can be updated by selecting Sales and Marketing > Lead Categories from the Argenta main menu on the left hand side of the screen.
