How to add Templates?

In your saved templates, which you can find in the ''templates'' section, you can set different customized parameters such as First Name, Last Name, Full Name, Email, Position, Company and Website.

Attributes are automatically filled when sending the email based on the contact’s information saved in Hunter. In case some of your contacts are missing some attributes, make sure to add fallbacks.

You can also add custom attributes if the attribute you want is not in the list.

You can easily select a template when you compose a new message.

💡Note: When using the Gmail integration, your Gmail signature will always be appended at the end of the message.

How to track and monitor your emails?

All the emails sent with Hunter are automatically tracked to provide real-time statistics on the openings and replies of your emails. While on any paid plan, you can also track the link clicks.

To check the status of an email, open the lead you sent the email to in the Leads page. Select the email you want to check and Hunter will provide the activity made in the email from the recipient.

Tracking events are also displayed in the ''Sending Status'' column in the Leads section.

💡Note: If the sending status column isn't visible, you can manually select it at the top right button for Displayed columns.

You can also set filters to find leads with a specific "sending status" in the Filters tab.

For more details, you can read the section about lead verifications in the main Leads help article.
