With the Mixmax Sidebar, you can display your team's communication history with the Group Live Feed, display contextual information about a specific recipient by hovering over their email address, take quick actions such as creating a task, logging a call, or scheduling a meeting - all directly from Gmail!
Enabling the Mixmax Sidebar
The Mixmax Sidebar is enabled by default. To disable or re-enable the Sidebar, simply head over to your General settings and check the box next to Enable the Mixmax Sidebar.
The Mixmax Sidebar lets you view your Group Live Feed without leaving Gmail.
In the People section of the Sidebar, you can view information related to a specific recipient by hovering over their email address from an email or searching for a contact using the search function. You can view the following details:
The communication history with that recipient
General information about the contact
Contact, Lead, or Account information from your connected CRM
Tracking information from the Live Feed and the list of Sequences in which the recipient is currently active
Recipient's LinkedIn profile information
For more details on where you can use the Sidebar People section in the Mixmax web app, see how to access Sidebar outside of Gmail.
In the Live Feed tab of the People section, under Sequences, you can see the list of sequences where the recipient is currently active, as well as the number and title of the particular stage and the time this stage was initiated. But that's not all! You can also pause, resume, or exit the recipient from a sequence directly from the Sidebar in your Gmail!
No need to open the web app to manage the active recipients; simply hover over the three dots icon next to the Sequence title and select the necessary option from the drop-down menu:
Adding a Contact to Salesforce
If you have connected Salesforce to your Workspace, you can use the Mixmax Sidebar to add new Contacts/Leads to Salesforce.
If you're viewing an email from a person for whom you have a record in Salesforce, you can see and edit their record in the Sidebar.
If there is no record associated with that email address, you can create a record:
Simply click Create Contact or Create Lead to add the contact to Salesforce.
Mixmax can also automatically create a new Salesforce Lead or Contact if you email recipients who do not have an associated Salesforce record. For more details on how to set this up, see Automatically creating new Leads or Contacts in Salesforce.
The Tasks Sidebar section lets you view all of your tasks in one place, create new tasks, and start the Tasks Workflow to complete multiple tasks in one go:
