Companies are a way to group contacts based on the company(ies) the contact works or has worked for.
When editing a company, you can merge this company into another existing company by using the Merge button.
Search for the company you wish to merge into and the fields from the current company that are not populated in the selected company will be copied to the selected company. Contacts that are not in the selected company will also be transferred.
After the current company has been merged into the selected company, you will be redirected to the selected company and the old company will be deleted from the database.
Company Custom Fields
With Mautic's installation a set of custom fields is provided for companies, but you can customize these fields to your needs.
- Go to custom fields and create any company field you need.
- Go to the right select box to assign this field to 'Company'.
You can create a segment based on a company record, simply select any company field to filter with and the matching criteria for it, and contacts that match any company filtered will be added to the segment.
Companies are identified strictly through a matching criteria based on Company Name, City, Country (and/or State). If city of country are not delivered as identifying fields to identify a contact, a company will not be matched or created.
