      • If it exists, the contact will be updated
      • If not, a new contact will be created
  • Synced Outlook contacts will be set as Qualified lead and will be assigned to the Outlook campaign. The Outlook owner will be assigned as the lead owner of the contact.
  • You need to activate your Mail Sync to connect your Outlook inbox to FunnelBud. Once enabled, email communications with the contact will appear in the Life of the Lead.
