Pipeline synchronization is an option to select a sales pipeline in amoCRM and the status assigned to deals. When a deal is sent to a specific pipeline with any status except for “Unsorted”, tags will be added to the deal indicating the integration channel through which it came, type of message (message/comment), phone number, also, in case with WhatsApp, the “Work phone” box will be filled.

If you want deals to be assigned “Unassembled” status, select “Send to Primary Pipeline ‘Unassembled’”. In this case, neither the tags nor the work phone number will be added to the deal.

Reach out first allows you to initiate a WhatsApp/Telegram Personal conversation from a deal, even if you haven't had any correspondence with this user before. The amoCRM interface only allows you to write first with a WhatsApp/Telegram Personal account.

Deal settings allows you to choose what to do when a client initiates a new inquiry with an archived/closed deal: create a new deal or send a message to the last closed deal.

After selecting the settings, click “Save”.
