The results can then be used to create segments or configure campaigns.

Description of columns

Source / Output / Name

The source and the output are represented by logos to help you recognize quickly what is the source of the finder and what is the output.

Source:

  • LinkedIn Sales Navigator

  • LinkedIn Recruiter

  • Ambassador's LinkedIn connections

  • GitHub

  • Google news

  • Excel spreadsheet

Output:

  • Contacts

  • Companies

Owner

Member of the space defined as owner of the finder. The owner is usually the person who delegates their identity in order to connect to the data source, so they must be active for the finder to work.

The number of additional members of a finder can be indicated to the right of the owner's name. The names of additional members will appear when you hover your mouse over the number.

State

The state indicates how many profiles from your source have been synchronised by Stent.

Progress

The progress represents with a percentage how many source profiles have been synchronized in Stent so far.

Status

Indicates whether the finder is active (green) or inactive (red). Depending on the chosen data source, certain finders are intended to be run daily, either to retrieve the latest data (e.g. Google News) or to meet the quotas imposed by a data provider (e.g. LinkedIn).

When active, a finder runs according to the configured time zone and schedule.

Available actions

Edit

Allows modifications of the given finder.

View accounts

This view shows the synchronization status of all profiles in your source and allows you to export the data.

Execute now

Allows you to immediately start the finder process of synchronisation between your source and Linkedin.

Duplicate

Create a second identical Finder

Archive

Allows finder archiving. An archived finder is automatically stopped and no longer appears in the list of finders. The results found by the finder remain accessible and aren't deleted.

The archiving operation is irreversible.

Reset

This action stops the Finder and erases all previous synchronizations. The Finder will therefore become entirely blank and will start again from the beginning.
