Grouping Contacts Into Groups

You can group your contacts together to make it easy to find and categorise how you know a person. Note that the groups can only be seen by you and not any of your contacts. By default after signing up to the platform the following groups would have been created for you:

  • Acquaintances - People you know at a distance.
  • Business Contacts - People you have connected with through your work or business world.
  • Close Friends - People who are your friends and you have known for a long time or have a connection on a deeper level.
  • Extended Family - People who are a part of your wider family, such as uncles, or second cousins.
  • Family - People who are a part of your close family, such as sisters or parents.
  • Friends - People who are your friends.
  • Work Colleagues - People who you work with on a professional level.
  • Unassigned People - People who have not been assigned to any group.

You can change the labels of these default groups, as well as deleted them, and add new contact groups.

Data Sharing Policies

For each contact group you can assign a "data sharing policy". Each policy determines the information about yourself that can be seen by the contacts you've assigned to the group. For example in your "Family" contact group you could assign a data sharing policy that allows family members assigned to it to see all your personal information about yourself, where as for the "Business Contacts" group you could assign a policy that allows chosen business associates to see only your name, email address, and phone number. Using data sharing policies allows you to have great control over the information you choose to share with people and organisations.

Introduce Contacts And Allow Them To Connect Together

Within the SQUIZZ.com platform there is the ability for you to introduce two of your contacts to each other, allowing them to connect together. Only once both people have accepted the introduction then they will be connected to each other and see each other in their contacts list.

Introductions provide a great way to connect your friends, family, business contacts, and any other people together without them having to make contact requests themselves. Additionally with each introduction you can set a message that explains why you have created the introduction.

  5. In the auto-complete drop down click on the name of the second contact.
  6. Optionally in the Message textbox type in a message that both your contacts will see when the introduction is created.
  7. Click on the Send Introduction button.

An introduction notification will be send to both of your contacts. Once both of the contacts have clicked on the Accept button in the introduction then the two contacts will be connected with each other and be able to communicate together. Additionally you will receive a notification advising that they are now connected. If either contact declines the introduction then it will be declined and you will receive a notification advising that the introduction declined.

Note that you can only send an introduction to the same two contacts once, if either person declines the introduction then you will not be able to send them another introduction. Additionally there is a limit to how many introductions that you can create. Once you have sent out the maximum introductions then you must wait for one of the introductions to be accepted or declined before you can send out another introduction.

Control Which Contacts Can Send You Introductions

You can decide which of your contacts are allowed to send you introductions to their contacts through the use of Contact Groups and Data Sharing Policies. Only your contacts assigned to a Contact Group that is assigned to a Data Sharing Policy that has the "Allow Contact Introductions" permission set to "yes" will be allowed to send you introductions.
