Finders

A finder allows you to build an audience of contacts or companies from different data sources.

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

Creating a new finder

To create a finder, choose Audience > Finders in the left menu, then click the Create a finder button at the top right of the screen.

Types of results

Contacts

You can use a finder to find people.

Companies

You can use a finder to find companies.

List of workspace finders

You can access the list of a workspace's finders by choosing Audience > Finders in the left menu.

Description of columns

Name

The finder's distinguished name.

Source / Output

The type of the data source and the type of results.

The size of the finder can also be specified as a number appearing to the right of the source and destination type. It generally indicates the number of results present in the data source that haven't yet been retrieved by the finder.

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.

Status

Indicates whether the finder is active (green background) or inactive (red background). 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 the modification of an existing 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.
